The Gates that allow access through Dragon's End Pass are a masterpiece of Dwarven engineering. Two enormous figures were crafted into the walls, symbolizing the passing of guarding and protecting Dragon's End Pass from the unspeakable evil that lies to the south. These gates have stood proud and vigilant since the changing of the guard. There is always a token force standing watch.

In the event of a hostile force approaching the outer gates, runners are sent back to Dragon's End Keep to sound the alarm and mobilize reinforcements. Scouts will easily spot any large force approaching and have plenty of time to report back and warn the Knights of impending trouble approaching the gates.

The fortress of Dragon’s End, better known as "Dragon’s End Keep" is built upon the western edge of the Great Mountains, standing as a lone sentinel to those who wish to cross the mountain pass it protects. The population of Dragon’s End is relatively small consisting of approximately 400 people, "mostly consisting of knights and militia" founded only 30 years ago. The location was founded when a Knight of Mythos, inspired by the sacrifice of Kellum Stormshield, defended a supply station against a blue dragon. The dragon met his end that day, hence the name Dragon's End came to be, and the supply station grew to be a small town and later transformed into a Fortress. The Knight of Mythos, Sir Gerrard, ruled for many years.

Sir Gerrard eventually relocated back to the capital city of Mythos ... Alaghon, turning over control of Dragon's End to Aeryn Silverheart, leader of the Knights of the Heart. Dragon's End has become the primary base of operations of the Knights of the Heart. The Knights of the Heart are now recognized as honorable allies of the Knights of Mythos, and are looked upon with favor from the population of Mythos. Aeryn Silverheart realizes that Dragon’s End is in a precarious situation, being the only defense of this pass. With the Mythos Knights pulling back into Mythos to fortify key positions, she is determined to hold the pass. In the event of an attack Aeryn Silverheart orders those who cannot fight to retreat through the mountain pass and out of harms way.

A surprising ally in the defense of Dragon’s End is Tasha, a Black Robe enchantress. Tasha pledged her support to Aeryn Silverheart on the condition that she will claim one of the towers of the city walls as her personal tower. Though uncomfortable with the situation, Aeryn Silverheart acknowledged that her magical prowess may help to turn the tide of a battle and agrees to the terms, but on the condition that she swear to never cause harm to the city and come to its defense when needed. Tasha agrees to the pact.

BACKGROUND
Aeryn Silverheart is the current leader of the Knights of the Heart. She is formerly a member of the Knights of Mythos. Aeryn became disillusioned with the Knights of Mythos. She felt that there should be more attention paid to aiding those who were victims to the forces of darkness, but she got caught up in politics and was unable to lend aid.

Aeryn soon left the Knights of Mythos, searching for the answers to the questions in her heart. Her Goddess visited Aeryn in a dream, in which Aeryn saw a new knighthood – one that was not so much a military organization, but more so a group of guardians and protectors, who were sworn to bring the power of healing to the world.

Aeryn dedicated herself to this vision, and soon the Knights of the Heart were born. Aeryn brought the basic ideals of honor to the Knights of the Heart, while tempering those ideals with compassion.
