House Myseros


The Banner of House Myseros

House Myseros controls the western valleys containing numerous rivers and streams pressed against the jagged western mountains from the west and nestled by the forested hills leading up to Mount Kyrie in the east. They reside in the ancient city of Myseros from which their house is named. The House bears the Imperial Eagle as their animal symbol, representing the house's far-reaching influence and history as descendants of the Old Empire. Nestled within the famed Valley of Paradise, the city of Myseros is named after the great Emperor Myseros of the Old Empire, and indeed the ruling House Myseros claims to be descended from him despite no clear evidence of any ties with the legendary emperor. With natural barriers of protection with plentiful rivers, streams, mountains, and forests on both sides, Myseros would seem to be the ideal location to build an empire, if not for its rather isolated position. Combined with the valley’s weaving shape and vast size, travel within Myseros could take days, if not weeks just to move from place to place. When the Old Empire collapsed, House Myseros was quick to establish itself as the heirs to the shattered lands of the Old Empire, and viewed any challenge to Myserian rule as an attack on Myseros itself. The Myserians moved first to assert their claims to the lands held by House Hallington, formally incorporating them into their new realm before waging war on the Kingdom of Felwin and then against the Kingdom of Cairlann. While Felwin conceded to serve as a vassal to Myseros much as the Hallingers did, Cairlann proved to be stubborn, and became an infuriating roadblock to Myserian plans of reunification. It wasn’t until Cairlann itself began to wage wars on its neighbors, soon to be known as the Wars of Expansion, that Cairlann went on the offensive, annexing the Kingdom of Felwin and installing House Veraldas as Felwuin's new rulers, before turning onto Myseros itself. House Myseros now begrudgingly bows down to Cairlann dominance, as the vast collection of Myserian texts of the Old Empire and skilled labor are put to work constructing massive projects across the Kingdom. Dams and reservoirs divert water to the thirsty southern farms of House Everite. Giant fortresses of stone and timber are erected at the frontiers of House Delmor. And grand structures such as the Citadel of Cairlann housing the Royal Family strike fear and awe to all who stand under its enormous shadow. Much like Cairlann, Myseros has not forgotten its roots. However, the Myserians are wise to learn from the annals of history. With the rise of the White Band Rebellion, Cairlann seems destined to repeat the disasters that brought the Old Empire down, and from its ashes a new power shall emerge. One with a Myserian at its helm.

House Kyrie


The Banner of House Kyrie

House Kyrie resides in the west-central alpine meadow highlands that surround the great Mount Kyrie, leading into the rocky mountains and the deep Valley of Paradise westward. The Great Stag serves as their animal symbol, representative of their position as protectors of Cairlann's traditions and culture, and a tribute to Cairlann's Founding Mother and Goddess of Creation Aena. They are a sister house to House Calicus, sharing blood to Prince Kalland via his grandmother. House Kyrie was once part of the Royal House of Calicus before a fracture between the ultraconservative members and its expansionist counterparts caused a rift within the house. The house split and formed a new Noble House under the name of Kyrie, occupying the highlands of the same name that border the city’s west field. Since then, the two houses have reconciled their differences, and the marriage between King Kastis and Queen Merryn formalized the two houses’ alliance. However, their trust with the dying House Calicus wanes as ambition from the foreign noble houses seek to take control of Cairlann, or worse, destroy it. The marriage of Queen Cecilia has already poised the rival House Bareth to take control of the throne with the birth of Prince Kalland, and with a realm weakened by war and rebellion, chaos seems inevitable. Perhaps it is time for the true heirs of Cairlann to rule as their ancestors had long spoken of, and preserve Cairlann’s legacy as a true Kyrenian would.

House Tullos


The Banner of House Tullos

House Tullos controls the cool, north-central temperate forests before the northern Arvaltan mountains from the ancient castle-city of Godwyn, separated from Cairlann by the great Virana River. Their House bears the carrion crow as their animal symbol, representing wisdom, vigilance, and their destiny as God's Chosen People. Once the great Royal House of the Kingdom of Godwyn, House Tullos has fallen from grace following their defeat by Cairlann during the Wars of Expansion. The Kingdom of Godwyn was once a barbarian tribe that inhabited the region before its conquest by the Old Empire during the Age of Antiquity. In the time they’ve spent under the Old Empire’s reign, House Tullos adopted many of the customs and traditions that their new rulers possessed. Laws, culture, religion, and most notably, martial prowess. The Tullosians merged the teachings of the Old Ways with the systems of the Old Empire, and the result was a fierce, yet disciplined people that retained the ruthless warrior spirit of their northern brethren with the machine-like training, tactics, and equipment of their overlords. When the Old Empire collapsed, Godwyn sought to unite the tribes of the Arvaltan Mountains under its banner against the encroaching threats of the southern outsiders and build a new world based on Tullosian principles. The tribes of Delmor and Goffren soon swore fealty to the growing Tullosian kingdom, but before it could seek to further expand northward, Cairlann had invaded. The defeat of the Kingdom of Godwyn spelt the end of Tullosian power. Surrendering to the Cairlannders was a dishonorable end in the eyes of the Godwynders, for their culture emphasized the importance of determination and perseverance against all odds as highly honorable traits. To die in battle was better than surrendering unscatched. Many traditionalists believed the Old Empire’s habits had tainted the Tullosians’ character, and made them susceptible to wicked Outsider thought. Some still hold hope of reviving the dreams of House Tullos and bringing about the great Kingdom of Godwyn as their ancestors once foretold, however the shame and dishonor of the past is a hard stain to wash away. House Tullos must prove themselves to their people that they are still worthy of Godwyn’s throne and restore the honor they once had to reclaim what they had lost before. Perhaps wrongs can be righted if they were to defeat the foe that dishonored them so: Cairlann.

House Hallington


The Banner of House Hallington

House Hallington controls the southeastern Arvaltan mountains from their city of Milios, notable for their many towering caverns, ravines, and rich ore deposits, complete with arid desert landscape, with a Mediterranean climate just over the mountain range leading to a nearby kingdom. Their house bears the griffin as their animal symbol, illustrating their bold valor and determination. The Hallingers served as vassals to the Myserian Dynasty long before the Old Empire’s collapse, providing a vital outlet to the southern seas in the form of their coastal trading hub Braedon. Coupled with their convenient access to raw materials within the Arvusian Mountains, the lands of House Hallington became a crossroads of industry and commerce. However, with the fall of the Old Empire, House Hallington had to rely on mercenaries to keep their businesses intact. Myseros, occupied with fighting Cairlann during the Wars of Expansion, could not be bothered to send troops to quell the increasing pirate raids on the Hallinger coastline. Eventually, foreign trade faltered, and the economy shuttered as the prized Hallinger gem Braedon was seized by a massive pirate fleet from a distant kingdom. House Hallington broke away from Myserian rule following the city’s loss as Myserian demand for troops and equipment took a heavy toll on the Hallingers, and soon joined Cairlann after the capitulation of Myseros. Recognizing their value as an industrial powerhouse, Cairlann entrusted House Hallington to provide the best arms and armor for their armies and were given special treatment as a reward for their services. Business once again boomed, and House Hallington soon grew fat with power as their coffers became filled by Cairlann’s war efforts. Their economic might puts all other Houses to shame, as their foundries constantly ship out new tools of war for their overlords and innovate upon their extraordinary designs. Yet, Cairlann’s reliance on the Hallingers to equip their armies may very well serve as their downfall. Their armies may march on the stomach of House Everite’s cornucopia, but House Hallington is its backbone. Tear it out, and Cairlann’s armies have nothing to stand on. House Hallington could very well turn its coin into soldiers, and prove itself to be a formidable competitor in the business of war.
