Heraldry of Montfort.

Montfort is the fortified capital of the Duchy of Montfort in Bretonnia. [2a]

It lies at the Bretonnian end of Axe Bite Pass and is considered the most impressive human-made fortification in the Old World. [2a]

The settlement within the pass is known as Inner Montofrt and renowned for its skilled armourers and weapon makers whilst Outer Montfort has a variety of excellent inns. [2a]

Defences

The walls of the castle rise some sixty feet in height in five tiers, each able to be defended indepentently. Double walls run from the lowest tier across the pass to a second small castle at the far end - tolls are paid at the gatehouse. [2a]

History

In 2031 IC the renowned Bretonnian bard Tyness Evain recorded the siege of the powerful citadel of Montfort by Daemons of Tzeentch. Kairos Fateweaver reduced the eastern ramparts to boiling slag killing hundreds of peasant archers before three score Pegasus Knights flew up to assail him, but instead they were confronted by shoals of Screamers. Packs of Flamers of Tzeentch scoured the battlements with fire and Daemon Princes rended and tore through the Knights of Bretonnia. Sir Callain fought desperately to protect the Prophetess of the Lady but finally faltered, his shield shattered and his breastplate smashed. [1a]
