~ General Infomation ~
On the Island of Astrum, above the volcanic rocks stands the Caelum Mountains,

high and rugged peaks with perpendicular cliffs, separated by narrow ravines and flat summits - the highest home to Fort Libella, built on the peak of 730 meters. The fort consists of thick stone foundations built into the mountains with sturdy castle walls. The walls feature anti-siege weapons such as large ballistas on pivoting platforms. The fort itself was designed by the master architect and inventor Ichien Tekton and is designed for a strong defencive stronghold for the islanders in case of siege. The fort consists of five sections; the outer wall, the inner wall, the barracks, the fort interiour, and finally the vault. The vault is rumoured to contain artifacts from the island's history and the world itself - such as the Leer na Astremian book.

~ Lore ~
Built after the attack of the "Hooded Pirates" the fort was built to commemorate Lady Judith Libella, the woman who layed down her life to protect the islanders, including the pregnant Bertha Tekton - mother of Lune Tekton and wife to Ichien Tekton - she sacraficed herself at the base of Libella House (see below) where the fort was eventually constructed off of.




~ Lore ~
On the outskirts of Mount Caelum sits The Libella House, utop a high hill. The house was the first built on the Astrum Island and was used as a house for the Libella family - Lady Judith Libella and her young son - and to store the materials to construct the other houses. As the town started to be constructed it became a hotspot for the islanders to meet up due to Lady Libella's kind and generous nature. However after the death of Lady Libella, the house was converted and upkept due to having no actual purpose, out of respect to the Lady's memory. As well as this a garden and statue was built to commemorate her and help her forever protect the island as she made her lifes work to do.
