The front gate, accessed by a path leading up from Rivenspire’s north beach.
Here are a couple of aerial views of the grounds.
Just inside the gate are three tree-lined paths: one to the stables (not seen here), one to the barracks and back gate, and one to the manor itself.
Here is a shot of the stables, which are large enough to house nearly
two dozen horses, along with space for visitors’ mounts as well.
Tiered steps lead to the front door. You can see the gardener’s shack in the background.
The barracks features a large training ground and a well where
the armsmen can refresh themselves while training.
Here is the back door of the castle with a view of the patio and gardens.The path leads to the back gate, which opens on to a path leading down the hill to a private beach.
A few shots of the manor’s lush gardens, which feature a rose garden, well, and some of the herbs Vallanil uses for alchemical and magical purposes.
Invisible from the surface, of course, a secret passage leads from the
basement to a bolt hole on the beach, with another passage leading
beneath the Doomcrag to Ravenwatch Castle.
