A testament to change (a failure of fate)
Valor Hold is actually twin forts built into the north and south sides of the pass. The main walls of the north and south fort are cut from the pass, but many years of alterations have taken what was closer to a foundation at one point and made it into the defenses it is now. Two massive stone walls running parallel have been built (much later) connecting the east and west corners of the forts together. On the western wall only one massive gate known as The Crossing lets travelers through to the Valarian Valley. The space between these two massive walls is referred to by locals as The Inbetween.
