The Wyntock Gate (spelled "Wyntok" in Stormed Fortress) is the first of two gates that separate the outer city of Alestron from the inner citadel. The Gate sits between two high towers. Beyond it is a swaying bridge suspended on cables and chain that spans the gulf to the Mathiell Gate. During war times, the bridge is unshackled and the approach is coated in grease.

History

During the rebellion, armed forces attempting to breach the inner citadel were crushed before the Mathiell Gate. The initial surge was prevented when the garrison burned the bridge between the gates. Subsequent attempts to storm the upper citadel failed.
