    Maidenhold Keep

    Current holder and location
    Current holder: Brydan the Crownlander
    Overlord: House Sunderland of Sweetsister
    Holdfast type: Major Holdfast - 30,000 Dragons for regular holders base income (7,500 additional income for Merchant lords)

    Location: To the west of Sisterton in a coastal area.
    History: The holdfast of Maidenhold, as Lord Sunderland tended to name the keep in memory of the last Sunderland Queen, who declared a pointless rebellion, when the Targaryens conquered Westeros, was built on orders of Lord Sunderland in order to create a secluded keep, far away from the open Sisterton to where he and his family can retreat and eventually discuss matters, which aren't supposed to be heard by the public.
    Similiar to the Gates of the Moon, Lord Sunderland tends to administrate the keep by a trusted man, whom he appoints as either a steward or lord of the keep, trading a portion of his land and vassals to a sworn lord in exchange for protection behind the walls of the keep.

    Lord Sunderland would eventually arrive at Lord Brydan's keep in order to inform him that he might have a task for him.
    With the capital producing Fish and Timber, he wishes to task the merchant with acting as an emissary of the Iron Throne in Myr in order to establish a trade route.
    What he actually offers out of the two rescources is by his choice, important is merely that he obtains a trade deal with Essos.
    Should he fail in Myr, he shall sail to Pentos, Lorath or Tyrosh instead.
    Depending on how much he trusts his skills, he can however utilize both trade routes for Essosi trade, as long as the King recieves his trade income and is pleased with the deals Brydan made.
    It should be seen as an opportunity to proof the viability of the Merchant Council.

    Sunderland will also pay for the ship escorte, bringing Brydan and his eventual cargo safely to the Free Cities. He advices though to avoid the Stepstones as rumors of Greyjoy's fleet reaving there spread already from Volantene merchants, who landed at Sisterton.
