Murder of Crows
Ithiko castle in Rethem’s Hohnamshire is the seat of Earl Herrin Barzak. The earl is a loyal supporter of the king and a staunch enemy of the Earl of Tormau to his north. Ithiko was originally built as a fortress on the edge of the Corani Empire and is infamous as the birthplace of the Morgathian prophet Balsha and the rallying point of the Balshan Jihad. Ithiko is a pilgrimage destination for Morgathians and the church maintains a shrine to Balsha and a temple in the castle town.
