Stormreach Kundarak Enclave
The House Kundarak enclave is the most secure structure in the city. For those who know of the Kundarak penchant for security, this comes as no surprise. The two bridges that span the Silverwall trench deposit visitors at the enclave’s entrance, which is marked by three small guardhouses. Two guard towers look down on the main entrance, with another three towers spread around the enclave’s walls. Kundarak guards are posted at the towers day and night. Each main entrance guardhouse typically contains four dwarf fighters, each wearing banded mail, and two iron defenders (ECS 287). Guards will admit only those with appointments, though they make exceptions for the Storm Lords, members of any dragonmarked house, and anyone having business with the Citadel of the Twelve. In the latter case, the guards escort visitors both to and from the citadel.
The enclave is composed of a central keep and several outbuildings, all of which are surrounded by a 20-footwide moat filled with water.
The enclave’s residents, all dwarves sworn to House Kundarak, venture regularly into the city for business and pleasure but rarely without at least one armed guard, and often with two or three, especially if the dwarf is a banker or other house official.
Most visitors to the enclave come for its bank, which is an architectural beauty. Three stories of stone walls gilded with silver and gold, the bank is renowned for the slaughterstone eviscerator (MM3 160) that stands watch over its main lobby. Many suspect that somewhere beneath it, watching over the vault, is its twin.
