The Fortress of Dawn also known as the Fortress of the Dawn is one of the High Elf Outposts located near the southern tip of the Southlands

It is a High Elf port city and colony located in the Island of the Sun, near the southern tip of the Southlands[1a][2a][3a][3b][4a].

History

It was established in 1203 IC by order of Morvael the Impetuous in the 82th year of his reign[1c][2c][4b].

The citadel was attacked by a vast aramada under the Chaos Dwarf Lord Abnagg Hellbeard who had sworn to break the blockade that prevented the Chaos Dwarf raiders and slavers from plundering the riches of the Old World. [6a] Initially his fleet was devestated by a magical storm followed by attacks by the High Elf Fleet [6b] and Dragons, but he rallied and forced them to retreat to the citadel. The seige continued for several years but the citadel held fast. [6c]

Locations

The colony's main feature is its large seaport, which enables the High Elf navy to patrol, protect and ultimately control the eastern sea trade routes to Cathay[1b][2b] and to suppress any raids of the Dark Elf Corsairs in this region. It blockades the Chaos Dwarfs, preventing them from raiding the Old World. [6a]

Its central city is built around a central vast waystone. [5]

The island also harbours several towns and shipyards[2d][3b], making it an ideal place to rest exhausted ship crews and to repair and/or refit damaged ships.

Military

The fleet based at the Fortress often supports that of the Citadel of Dusk but the two colonies are also great rivals. [7a]
