Nestled deep in the Vale's mountainous region at the very source of a minor Vale river, The Grey Glen is the castle of the House Tollett. Lord Uthor Tollett resides here, in a grey stone keep perched on a mountainside. The town lives on its fishing, and has a few quarries and mines. The dark weathered houses down in the glen are on stilts, because of the highly uneven terrain, and rudimentary rope bridges crisscross the two flanks of the small gully. People of the Grey Glen feed themselves on fish and on vegetables grown in hillside potagers strewn across the town.


  • The Keep
    • The Drum Tower houses the throne room, the kitchen, the maester's chambers and the rookery. It boasts a squat, cylindrical shape and has a domed roof.
    • The Lord's Tower, as implied by its name, is the quarters of Lord Uthor and his family. It is tall and its shade often looms over the village.
  • The Village
    • The Wharf is a small wooden quay used for the docking of the local fishers' boats. It has a modest harbour office and various nets and storage boxes are strewn all over.
    • The Pily Cendree is the local inn, named after House Tollett's arms. It has rooms for the few travelers who ever happen to pass by, and serves cheap sour ale and stale bread.
    • The Road branching off from the road to the keep goes to Ninestars, and is the only means of travel to the outside world other than the river.

The Grey Glen was started at the end of January 2013 by iodizedmilk. The erection of the castle lasted only three days. The wall was one of the biggest challenges, due to the uneven ground, and it took a long time to get the pattern right, but it was still managed in about five hours of work. The rest was the village, and it took about a week for its completion, with great help from Qualrus, pianoman and others. The main inspiration for this town was the settlement of Bravil, a town in the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and the keep was mostly based on Helm's Deep from the universe of J.R.R Tolkien.
