Angwar Keep is a fort in eastern Thrane approximately midway between Olath and Aruldusk on the Orien trade route that passes between the two towns, and east of the Burnt Wood. Across Scions Sound from the fort is the everpresent mist of the Mournland. The fort is currently inhabited by an order of monks. The monks that live there are warforged that styled themselves as disciples of the Redeemed, an elite cadre of warforged who defected from Cyre and had devoted themselves to the defense of Thrane.

Angwar Keep is now thought of in eastern Thrane as the Stubborn Shield maiden because it has never fallen to any enemies. The keep is inhabited by monks now but they are not going to let the name Stubborn Shield maiden fall.
