The Forgotten Keep
Red Irons Mercenary Company
The Red Irons Mercenary Company has been operating in Kirkwall for at least 3 generations acting at times as the city guard and at other times an army to defend Kirkwall from threats both from above and below.
Traditionally the Red Irons have been a loose confederation of war lords who cooperated out of necessity. However, they have transformed themselves into something more resembling a proper army within the last 30 years.
