|A View of Devil's Castle|
General[edit | edit source]
Situated atop a prominent hill, Devil's Castle is one of the largest castles in South Zagoria. The castle contains a tower, two castle gates, and is surrounded by a large stone wall. It is connected to the surrounding towns via a dirt road. It is arguably the most popular of the game's castles due to its urban proximity and hunting loot. It is mostly visited by Survivors passing through.
History[edit | edit source]
It was founded in the 11th century by the ruling Kozlov Principate as the keystone in a network of fortresses designed to consolidate the dynasty's power in the newly founded region. It was two hundred years later, when this plan had failed, that the castle received its modern name. The bandit Jakub Cert (Czech for Devil) used it as his base of operations to pillage the surrounding countryside. When these raids ultimately brought an army to the walls, Jakub burned the keep rather than surrender it to his foe. It is said that on quiet nights the spirit of Duke Ivan Kozlov can be seen wandering the remnants of his masterwork, charred by the Devil.
