The manor here belonged to Lord Aliden Perenolde, the last known leader of the Syndicate. Despite its charming appearance, numerous Syndicate rogues and mercenaries once snuck through the area, quick to put a dagger in the back of anyone who appeared to not share their affiliation.
At some point around the Cataclysm, the area was abandoned.
In-Game and RP'dEdit
With the location free of NPCs, a number of people were quick to try to claim the location for RP, among them, the Crimson Sun Brigade.
For a while, CSB used the location as their guild hall, though since the phasing was removed from Fenris Keep the mercenary brigade has moved their main headquarters there, though still loosely hold onto Dandred's Fold for a number of logistics and realism reasons.
While the building is more or less as perceived in game, CSB roleplay that there are a few differences, the biggest being that the building has been reinforced with armor platings, reinforced windows with arrow slits and a small lookout tower on top to serve as a sniper spot. The armor plating has been painted with a wood texture, to keep the house looking relatively the same as before.
