Usually each rebuild starts with a small fortified outpost that gradually grows in size. The most recent destruction occured 23 years before the fall of [[Kalak]]. The location of that settlement's ruins have been forgotten. People who remember it refer to is as [[Old Altaruk]]. === Trade Frostress Altaruk === [[Old Altaruk]] was replaced by [[Trade Fortress Altaruk]], which eventually grew into the town commonly known simply as [[Altaruk]] today. The fortress is a rough square, with walls about 15 ft high and half as thick. Each corner is capped with a 20 ft high tower. Guards with lances patrol the parapets. The two gates, located on the north and south walls, are huge doors fashioned of granite and metal, their exteriors carved with reliefs of merchants doing business. The doors are currently open. If they follow standard procedure, they remain open until night falls, then reopen at dawn.
