Phoenix Gate Banner

The Phoenix Gate was well named, for over the course of its existence it has been reduced to ruble and rebuilt on several occasions. Yet its garrison are little worried by this seemingly grim record. A great many of the Phoenix Gate's soldiers are drawn from the Kingdom of Eataine, and they simply assume such woes to be part of Asuryan's ineffable plan. 'Should the enemy topple our walls,' they say 'then we shall simply build them higher and grander than before.' And so they have, many times. Indeed, the towers of the Phoenix Gate now stand so tall that their spires are lost within the clouds that hang heavy about the Annulii Mountains. This stubborn pride in the face of disaster has become famous throughout Ulthuan — despite this, few warriors from other realms seek out service upon the Phoenix Gate. It takes a very deliberate kind of madness to seek guardianship over a fortress whose walls seem almost predestined to fall.[1a]

Eataine's support of the Phoenix Gate ensures that this fortress can boast the most accurate and efficient of all Eagle Claw Bolt Throwers.[1b]

Archers of the Phoenix Gate traditionally hail from Caledor and Avelorn, and wear the greens and reds of those realms. They fire arrows blessed by the Anointed of Asuryan, that they might better strike down those who would oppose the Creator's plan.[1a]
