A keep was first built 1500 years ago, at the place where Reim now stands. The place endured several renovations and three sackings before the current layout of the castle was drawn. That castle, Flos' residence, was built 800 years ago.
Under Flos Reimarch Edit
Reim was never besieged during the reign of Flos Reimarch, as Flos was always on the offensive, and by the time other nations formed armies to attack, Reim sat at the heart of his empire, his bastion. So he have never had to defend it.
As it is mostly the case in Chandrar, desert and arid land surround Reim.
The city has a battlements that consist of decently tall walls and sixteen high watch towers, that jut out and placed at equal distances along the curtain wall, giving the impression of a crown, which is rather spoiled by the palace in the center. These towers would normally carry high-level archers and mages that could rain death upon an enemy. They’re enchanted quite heavily, and Amerys aided in that.
There's a tower made by Drevish called the sniper tower. It was over a hundred feet tall, and so enchanted a trebuchet couldn’t knock it down. He claimed that if you put only one archer in there, they could hold it forever with enough food. There are no entrances leading up, and if they used the cover of the walls, they could shoot down enemy mages and so on.
Military Strength Edit
As of Ch 4.04 K, Reim's army has six thousand two hundred and fifty six soldiers, and possibly two thousand more from the refugees headed towards the city.

Known Inhabitants Edit
- Although Drevish did work hard on this city, for all it was anathema to him, he did like the height of the towers. He believed in what he called self-sufficient architecture, buildings that didn’t need to be protected, that were capable of protecting themselves.
