Tall, iron-banded wooden gates straddle the roadway. A stone wall a dozen feet high stretches around Sarth, which had once been a fortress. Around the ancient tower, a larger single-story keep building had been added as well as two outbuildings. Sarth is maintained by the Brothers of Ishap, a religious order that worship the god Knowledge. People often travel to Sarth in search of the answer to a question that can be answered nowhere else. Long before the Brothers of Ishap found the keep, it was maintained by a Keshian robber-baron who was eventually assassinated by the local peasantry.
