"The Charr have breached the Wall again. They burn our homes and threaten to take what little we have left." - Lord Darrin
There was once a day where heroes were helping a woman with her apples in the forest outside of the fort, but then came the days of taking up arms against the charr just outside. Fort Ranik is the first real fortress we see in presearing Ascalon. The mood when I stepped inside for the first time was different from the rest of the outposts. It felt more militarized, which makes sense when you learn that it's the place where the military of Ascalon is trained.
