Caer Bronach is an old Ferelden military outpost in Crestwood.

Background Edit

King Brandel erected Caer Bronach in 8:26 Blessed, intending the fort as a stopover garrison for Ferelden soldiers fighting Orlesian invaders. When the fort's defeat seemed inevitable, Ser Crestwood opened the gates, holding a flag of truce, and challenged every chevalier in the Imperial army to a duel.[1]

Amused, one Orlesian officer accepted the offer; Ser Crestwood swiftly cut him down. Eight more followed, honor and the watching soldiers forcing them to fight Ser Crestwood one on one. The tenth challenger finally managed a fatal blow, only because Ser Crestwood had slowed due to blood loss from previous injuries. Impressed by Ser Crestwood's tenacity and endurance, the remaining officers left the small village around the fort untouched as the Orlesians made for the capital, sparing hundreds of innocent lives.[2]

Involvement Edit

Caer Bronach has since become the base of a group of bandits named the Highwaymen, who prey on traders going between Orlais and Ferelden.
