The Val'Nalsarkoth fortress consists of two large towers carved out of giant stone pillars, surrounded by domed stone houses designed and built by dwarven craftsmen after the original fortress was destroyed during a clan war. The buildings are arranged around the terrain, creating multi-tiered walkways and staircases instead of the smooth, straight streets seen in other fortress locations. Exotic plants and foliage appear tucked into any available garden bed, window planter box and in large, manicured courtyards and parks. Growing in the courtyards and around the surrounding buildings are large trees, something rarely seen in the underground due to the lack of proper light and growing conditions. The areas inside and outside of the buildings are well lit, giving them an almost daylight-like appearance.
Within the main fortress tower itself, there are meeting rooms with high ceilings and lavish decorations designed to impress visitors and clients. There are many rooms in the main tower, also decorated in a manner that displays the material wealth of a merchant clan, allowing their guests to enjoy their stays in relative comfort.
Until recently, the walls surrounding the Val'Nalsarkoth fortress were thought to be impenetrable. This was proven incorrect by the intrusion of a war golem piloted by Nishi'kanta Vel'sharen, who sought to confront Snadya'rune Vel'Sharen - a guest at the time of Viri'sylvia Val'Nalsarkoth. The confrontation escalated until both the war golem (source 1) and surrounding courtyard of the main tower were destroyed (source 2).
