It was first mentioned during Weed's north campaign in Valley of Death. He acquired the information from the resident of Morata in exchange of the food he cooked for them. The resident told him information about the surrounding area of Valley of Death.
If you want to reach Valley of Death, you need to follow the Pahel River.
From Morata if you headed north you will reach Sabi Village, they have unusual method passed down from father to son, and they love to carve things. Even though you will have to pass a dangerous road, if you're a craftsman it would be best to go there
The closest fort to the Valley of Death is the Vent Castle. Once it was a thriving castle of Niflheim Empire with knights, but we do not know what has happened to it.
When Weed, Seoyoon, and Alveron arrived at the Vent Castle, they weren't welcome at all. The old castle was built using rectangular rocks. Even with Alveron announcement that he was from the Church of Freya, the soldiers standing on top of castle's wall still have their weapons aimed at them. Therefore, Weed left the castle alone and continued with his quest in the Valley of Death.
After Weed's coronation as a King of Arpen Kingdom, the Vent Castle was mentioned again. It was an important gateway to protect Mordred, the capital of Niflheim Empire. When the Empire collapsed completely and the north covered with snow and invested with monsters, the army of Vent Castle made sure to keep the gate closed to protect the people living inside. The became self-sufficient with food as they lived with monsters surrounding them. Even after the mild climate was back, they still adopt a close door policy. The knights and soldiers were waiting for the person who inherited the Niflheim Empire.
While other areas in the north reaped the benefits of Morata's development, the Vent Castle remain a small village. But since Morata was changed into the capital of Arpen Kingdom, the wave of change came to Vent Castle.
Gamong, a novice merchant from Morata came to Vent Castle. She was refused entry immediately but she didn't falter as she wanted to establish a trade route in the north. She roamed the north with food wagons from Morata, she sold her goods to travelers, soldiers, and lords during her journey. She gave olives, wine, and rice to the knights for a taste then left.
When she was handing out food in a mountain village, a grandmother asked her if she wanted to see Vent Castle. She told her that her grandson is one of the guards, upon mentioning her name Gamong would gain entry. She was the first visitor ever since the gate was closed, she had a monopoly for now on Vent Castle's goods. She bought items and armors with excellent workmanship at a low price which could be sold at affordable prices in Morata. When she was back to Vent Castle she brought a huge amount of foods of lots different varieties; lamb, beer, rice, tomatoes, cheese, and wine. It was sold out in an instant since she sold it at a cheap price. As she gained a reputation as a merchant and intimacy with the residents of Vent Castle, they were willing to give more quantity sold to her.
Gamong wasn't the only one receive the benefits from the trading. Vent Castle's birth rate increased as they have more food varieties. Their close door attitude slowly loosened as they experienced the positive changes. Rumors and stories about Weed's adventures and his territories development spread in Vent Castle.
