From the days when Oberon, Osric, Findow, Benedict, and Borlak built the ring of curtain walls and fortification around the city there have bee towers and compounds for various military reasons. Eric and Corwin did extensive supporting construction.
When the militant daughter of Oberon, Dierdre, was growing up she often played in this particular fort. As she grew in military skill she was often teased by her older brothers but in time the teasing gave way.
