The Eyrie is the ancient seat of House Arryn. It is situated in the Mountains of the Moon astride the peak known as the Giant's Lance, several thousand feet above the valley floor below. It's considered impregnable to attack. During winter years, the Arryns seek refuge against the cold at the base of the mountain in the Gates of the Moon.
|The High Hall of the Arryns
|where the household takes meals. It is a long and austere hall, with walls made of blue-veined white marble. At the end of it sits the throne of the Arryns, a seat carved of weirwood. It has narrow, arched windows, between which are torches mounted on high iron sconces.|
|The Maiden's Tower
|Easternmost of the seven towers of the Eyrie. From a balcony on the tower, one can see the Giant's Lance.|
|a narrow weirwood door that stands between two slender pillars in the High Hall of the Arryns. A crescent moon is carved into the door. Across the door are heavy bronze bars that bar the door, which opens inward. The door opens into the sky and a six hundred foot drop to the stones of the valley below. Most executions at the Eyrie use this door.|
|The Eyrie's dungeons are particularly infamous; they are merely shelves on the side of the mountain's sheer cliffs, left open to the cold sky. Many prisoners, driven mad by the cold and howling wind, commit suicide rather than remain imprisoned. Mord is a gaoler of House Arryn in charge of the upkeep and maintenance of the sky cells.|
