Chandlerkeep

This small keep overlooking the Ashaba is located in the
southwestern precincts of town. It serves as the meeting hall of the Scardale
Council, the residence of Khelvos Dermmen and his retainers, the seat of
municipal government, and the headquarters of the Scardale militia and
Chandlerscross town guard, containing barracks, stables and armory. It is of stout stone
and mortar construction, quite formidable and daunting outwardly. The various
offices and Dermmen’s quarters are, in contrast, surprising reassuring,
friendly, and comfortable.

The militia and town guard combined consists of some two hundred and fifty
men, though not all are active or resident at Chandlerkeep at once. The vast
majority are native Scardale folk, loyal to the Council and Scardale alone,
though both the Sembians and the Zhentarim have agents seeded within their
ranks. Both milita and guard are commanded by Vholta Bannerman (LG Fighter 6),
Dermmen’s best friend and good right arm. Like the governor, Bannerman desires
to see Scardale free of the legacy of Lashan Aumersair and all foreign
interference. He is vehemently opposed to any blood of Aumersair resuming rule of
the dale, and is of the firm belief that even if Scylla Darkhope is Lashan’s
daughter, it is against the best interest of the Dales as a whole and Scardale
in particular to hand rulership over to a Zhentarim lord. Bannerman is not a
member of the council, but his opinion is highly respected.
