The Cyrinthmeir Hashshashin Fortification is the Central base of operations of the Hashshashin in Cyrinthmeir, located in an isolated valley deep in the Northern Cyrinthmeir Mountains.



The Cyrinthmeir Hashshashin Fortification is located in the Northern mountains of Cyrinthmeir, set in an isolated and fertile valley. Around the fortification itself, a somewhat large village has sprung up to support the isolated location, containing all the required skills and resources to support the fortification indefinitely. The fortification is a large castle structure that was built and designed to be a defensive building. Inside are many different areas including a courtyard, defensive towers, a training area, a living area, a library, a guest area, and much more.


Little records were kept of the early days of the Hashshashin fortification, and it is unknown if any or all of the structure existed before the Hashshashin began using it.
