- Algernon Guincamp to Geralt, Season of Storms

Rissberg Castle is near Cremora mountain on the Cidarian/Temerian border. It is medium in size, embedded in a rock wall, has light-colored walls, four towers and some small, decorative turrets.

The castle is used as a center for mages not under the control of the Brotherhood of Sorcerers. 18 masters and more than 80 adepts and apprentices reside there, conducting a variety of experiments, from which various types of prototypes have emerged, including combat units, elixirs, as well as magically mutated or genetically engineered creatures. Due to their inhumane experiments and dabbling in taboo areas, like goetia, the castle acts like a clandestine site for unethical mages.

There is also a small town under the castle where various magical wares are brought and then exchanged or sold every Wednesday.[1]
