The man who is known as Count Varga controls the at least outwardly restored Chorrol Castle in what was once the city of Chorrol. While the size and stability of Chorrol is unknown, it appears that there is a light levy supporting a core of roughly 15 well-equipped and trained men.
The story given to the group is that several decades ago a wealthy couple with a large retinue of soldiers and servants came to the small community living in what was left of Chorrol claiming to be the Count and Lady Varga rightfully laying hold to their birthright. No one was willing to refuse them, and they made some repairs to the castle and town. Eventually they had a son, and when they died some time ago he took power. With the parents gone and his behavior erratic, apparently some now doubt this paranoid tyrant’s legitimacy.
