Dragon Age: The Gathering Dark
Astram keep is a modest hilltop bastion built on a curiously shaped rock spur. Tacticians throughout Ferelden have speculated that despite its small size and garrison it might be one of the easiest and best defensible positions in the land. It is said that Bann Villem paid several hundred sovereigns, a king’s ransom, to dwarven miners to dig him a well shaft through three hundred feet of solid stone. the well exists, though its depth is unconfirmed and there are rumours that for that much money the dwarves might have dug secret passages as well.
