The land around a fortress is different.
The trees are managed, the grass is grazed and roads stretch out to preserve both from stray boots.
Skullknife takes it's name from the high chalk cliffs the fortress is carved into and it's seams of iron ores not far below. Be you part of besieging army, a diplomat here to open relations or a trader in your season there is something for you here.

The fortress is arranged in layers connected by a central shaft filled with stairs. At the top of the cliff there are glassed in farm plots for the production of surface plants without getting exposed to the annoyances of weather and fresh air. Below that come ranks of storage spaces and a barracks and training area. Then the main entrance, which branches off to one side for a trade depot. After that comes a farming space for the below ground crops, manufacturing and then housing and offices.
