Way of the Wicked
The Adarium is the ancestral home and palace of House Darius. The Adarium is not actually in Matharyn proper. It lies across the mouth of the Cambrian Bay.
Not surprisingly, the Adarium is heavily defended by Talingarde’s finest and only the most important members of the aristocracy are permitted within its walls. Even then though, many areas are strictly off limits as it is home to the beloved daughter of the king, Princess Bellinda, whom almost never leaves the palace.
Historically, it was King Markadian II called the Learned who first began renovations on the family castle that would soon become the Adarium. Once the first wing of the new palace was completed, the king retreated to his new sanctuary and rarely left it. He was slain there, amidst his books, by his own brother. Five months later, the Mad King Markadian III ‘fell’ from the highest spire of the Adarium to his death.
