High & Noble Houses Empty High & Noble Houses

on Fri 28 Jun 2019, 00:36

Houses of Avalance

The feudal system of Avalance follows a simple system where every House, except for the King himself, has a liege they answer to directly. The High Houses answer to the King, the Noble Houses answer to their respective High House and each Minor House answers to a Noble House. This means that High and Noble Houses have vassals, which is just a fancy word for those who answer to them. i.e.: House Aldyr is House Freyr's liege. As such, House Freyr is House Aldyr's vassal.

In the list below you will find every High and Noble House known within Avalance. At times, some of these positions may be free and you will be able to apply by submitting the form below in a response to this topic. Some of the Houses might be ruled by NPC’s. These can be freed up later, but as of right now are not open for applications.

Please keep in mind that we do require you to have been active on Forged in Fire for at least a little while before taking your application into consideration. Try to be original and not follow in the footsteps of overused storylines.

For a detailed description on how to customize the template, please refer to the post below. To create a sigil for yourself, you can use this template or head to the sigil shop.

house aldyr of dragonwatch

king jeran aldyr
queen aldwena aldyr †
heir faolan aldyr
liegenone
vassals house vigneron, house sylversword, house freyr. House moore, house ????, house thorne.

“Beyond the skies we rise.”

House Aldyr has ruled Avalance for quite a while without having much resistance, meaning many of their kings are very proud and think highly of themselves. Many of the Aldyr bloodline share the dragonriders blood and almost all of them have an affinity towards fire dragons, as the dragon rode by Eleahra Daleros is of the fire kind.


house moore of hallistall

lord none
lady claude moore
heir none
liegehouse aldyr
vassalsnone

“Pride and prosperity.”

Hallistall is known for its cavalry. They have some of the best horses of Avalance and actively breed their purest bloodlines. House Moore has horses whose heritage goes way back to the earlier days of the city. They know how to train and take care of them, after which they earn good coin by selling them to other houses, which makes horses their main trademark. And because they own all those horses, all of them which are not good enough for breeding are send to their cavalry, which is one of the biggest in Avalance.


house ???? of oakstead

house thorne of crestfall

lord isaac thorne
lady clara thorne †
heir not specified
liegehouse aldyr
vassalsnone

“Truth sets us free.”

Truth above everything. No matter how much the people differ from each other within the House of Thorne, they have all been raised to value one above all else: truth. Many of the family have decided to travel, still keeping in touch with their family and returning home ever so often, adding knowledge to their ever growing collection. The current Lord, Isaac, is a gentle soul with a big heart, even though he might not seem that way, the man cares about protecting the young and has, more than once, taken in a child who would otherwise be raised by the streets. Due to this, the name Thorne is only ever growing stronger.




house vigneron of wineport

lord delsin vigneron
lady none
heir none
liegehouse aldyr
vassalshouse couture, house mercier of riverhold & kraken's harbour, house vigneron of dorwine.

“Pure of Heart.”

House Vigneron has led the Evergreen for many generations now, doing so in absolute peace. This family has always believed that a good life equals a good death, so that is what they strive to have. They made their way to High House by growing grapes and eventually selling wine, making money and allies in the process. Their relationship with the king even rivals that of the Sylversword family, especially now that their alliance has been strengthened by the most recent marriage. As the only High House to also have an alliance with House Freyr, Vigneron strives to be neutral in most wars, taking on the role of friendly neighbour, where people from every place are welcome, no matter the current political conflicts.


house couture of fairview

lord none
lady elayne couture
heir none
liegehouse vigneron
vassalsnone

“Ever growing.”

The Couture House is a prideful house, standing for their House before anything else. They often have a good bond with their smallfolk and invest in their wellbeing. Because of their prideful nature and their love for trade, they could possibly either have a fierce competition with Riverhold and Kraken's lair or work collaboratively to increase the wealth of all the ports.


house mercier of riverhold

lord none
lady inej mercier
heir none
liegehouse vigneron
vassalsnone

“Wealth of the Sea.”

House Mercier is one of the oldest houses in Evergreen. Once a rich merchant family from Lavarr, now a respectable house holding one of the most important trading positions in Avalance. Though they have known their hardships, House Mercier has stood through all of them and has proven that they are strong and not to be messed with. The Merciers are known for their harsh actions, usually dealing with the consequences when they feel like it. They aren’t scared of threats, and it doesn’t matter if they are on the receiving end or the other way around. They are fighters, fiercely protecting their citizens and everything that they own.



house mercier of kraken’s harbour

lord arryn mercier
lady aveline leroux
heir none
liegehouse vigneron
vassalsnone

“Wherever there’s will we sail.”

Formerly known as a piracy city Kraken’s Lair is now under the restless rule of Arryn Mercier. After that Lord Fabron left the city Arryn got the proposal from his sister to take over Kraken’s Lair and turn the Evergreen to one united rule under Lord Vigneron. That means change. Arryn Mercier is known for his loyalty more than his hatred towards pirates. Taking over Kraken Lair means that a big part of the piracy leaves with its previous lord and makes place for a new kind of business; The Mercier Fleet.


house vigneron of dorwine

lord none
lady eryva vigneron
heir none
liegehouse vigneron
vassalsnone

“Our roots grow deep.”

The city of Dorwine is known for it's large, prized flower gardens and strong position in trade that had already been firmly established by the house Segal. With its rolling hills, green pastures and practical position close to the sea, the red rise and a manageable travelling distance, the lands are widely used for vegetables and livestock, leading to the House being one of the biggest traders in meat, milk, eggs and by lesser extend greens. Together with the alliance with the Vigneron's of Wineport, the financial position of the house and Dorwine remains strong. Inhabitants of Dorwine often find work in farming, but the bustling city hosts all kind of trades such as tailors, florists, merchants and art and music.




house sylversword of sapphire keep

lord none
lady adeena sylversword
heir none
liegehouse aldyr
vassalsHouse cerwyn, House ????.

“Out of darkness we bring light.”

In comparison to the other high houses of Avalance, House Sylversword is fairly young, considering they are only in their fourth generation of rulers. After the Glade lost their previous lord and his rightful heir during the last war, it was the king's most trusted friend, a loyal knight, who was announced as the new lord of the Glade. The new house was met with a lot of wariness in the Glade, for the gladers had never been too fond of change and strangers. However, over the years, House Sylversword has proven their worth as high house of the Glade, standing tall and strong and ruling over the Glade with kindness and a sense of justice. They are well-known for their impressive history of noble knights and fierce warriors, although the most impressive of all is the story of Ser Gabriel, the first Sylversword.


house Cerwyn of silvershire

lord dax cerwyn
lady none
heir none
liegehouse sylversword
vassalsnone

“Strength rejoices in the challenge.”

House Cerwyn is a fairly new house to the political scene. They tend to keep busy with the training of knights. Knights that are mainly trained for the High House of the Glade yet some of them roam out of the province as well. Knights that have been trained in Silvershire are well known for their skillset and their discipline and loyalty to House Cerwyn. They are being prepared in almost any known fighting style there is, train with swords, bows, daggers, spears and even axes.


house ???? of goldenleaf

house freyr of caer scion

lord apollo freyr
lady delaney freyr
heir mercury freyr
liegehouse aldyr
vassalsHouse Corbin, House Laighin.

“In the heat of winter.”

For over five hundred years, House Freyr has ruled the Highlands with an iron fist. It does not always make them the most popular family around. People know that their reign is fair and just though. They only punish when the accused is proven guilty. Once they have enough proof, punishment is harsh. But it is all with the well-being of the people in mind. And for that reason, they respect the House regardless of their strict policy. To ensure the Highlands continue to be the strong entity they are, the Lord is assisted by his small council. Members of the council are chosen by the Lord and are often people that have proved to be trustworthy and experienced in important matters such as warfare, intelligence and bookkeeping.


house corbin of aeldun

lord elijah corbin
lady none
heir none
liegehouse freyr
vassalsnone

“True and Just.”

House Corbin is known for often hosting audiences. They try to listen to the common people living in Aeldun and around the city as much as possible, offering help and coin where needed. But do not confuse their act of kindness for weakness as they will remember who they've helped and can sometimes ask favors in return when they see fit. Just like their sigil, the raven, they have excellent memory and will remember any face and name who tries to do harm to them or their loved ones.

This house is currently under NPC rule.


house Laighin of Last Hearth

lord Mikael Laighin
lady Ingrid Laighin
heir Erik Laighin
liegehouse freyr
vassalsnone

“To fight or work, we are ready.”


After the departure of Lady Skarsgård, House Laighin has taken the seat of the Last Hearth. With Ingrid being born in the far North, their relationship with these people is better than ever and trade is reaching its all-time high. Most of the people within their village are fishermen or smiths and the Lord himself is no exception, oftentimes found fishing at the Frozen Abyss.

This house is currently under NPC rule.




house illeon of ashax

king first last
queen zehirah illeon
heir not specified
liegenone
vassalshouse lynch, house mahli

“We are and always will be.”

House Illeon is a family proud of its descendance. While certainly more peaceful than House Freyr, they still hold on to their claim to the throne of Avalance and are not afraid to fight for their rights. Because of the history of Ashax and the fact that the Rift has separated them from the mainland for hundreds of years, the rules people abide to are a bit different to those of the rest of Avalance. Most folks are easy going and less rigid than those from the mainland, but with a very passionate heart. Due to Asherah’s rule and also the choice her father, Theoden, made, it is not uncommon for Ashax and primarily House Illeon to have female heirs, their husbands taking on their surname instead of the other way around.


house Lynch of Sandport

lord Achak Lynch
lady Tarsha Lynch
heir none
liegehouse illeon
vassalsnone

“We can, we did.”


A relatively new House. House Lynch are known throughout all of Avalance as one of, if not the, best shipbuilders. They’re a quiet family in comparison to the rest of Ashax, mostly keeping to themselves as they find new ways to improve their ships. As a hard-working family, their city thrives financially and the city is generally fond of them.

This house is currently under NPC rule.


house Mahli of Sunfall

lord Kahale Mahli
lady Nalani Mahli
heir Akamu Mahli
liegehouse illeon
vassalsnone

“Live long and die free.”

As the main port of trade to Yax’in, it is no surprise that House Mahli has always been influenced by their ways and traditions, to the point where the current Lady is as much Avalance as she is Yax’in. Despite its active trade, Sunfall is hardly known for its hard workers, but instead for the bright festivities and the beautiful beaches. House Mahli keeps up this reputation, hosting the biggest parties in its city. Still, they managed to balance work and leisure equally well.

This house is currently under NPC rule.

To use the pre-made aesthetics for your house information, please change the div id at the very start of the code.
Code:
<center><div class="forgedsheet" id="THIS IS WHAT YOU CHANGE">
You can change it into one of the following words: highlands glade crownlands evergreen ashax foreign custom . If you use custom, please fill in the style at the very bottom of the code.

For this particular example, the "crownlands" aesthetic has been used. The default for the introduction will be set to custom.

On the top right, the House's Sigil is located. The image url can be found above this block, with the following code:
Code:
<div class="qlsigil"><img src="https://i.servimg.com/u/f66/15/66/46/79/common10.png"></div>

For High Houses, the shape of the sigils is slightly different. For this reason, they should change qlsigil to qlhsigil, which results in the following:
Code:
<div class="qlhsigil"><img src="https://i.servimg.com/u/f66/15/66/46/79/common10.png"></div>

In this example, we're using the High House Sigil.




politics

liege who does your house answer to?
vassals which houses answer to you?
alliances who are your house’s allies? Mostly, alliances are made through marriage

Descriptions are put in the "blocks". This is where you put anything longer than a short list/description. The code for this is as follows:
Code:
<div class="forgedblock"></div>

To change the list above any block, please follow the instructions below:

Make sure the code exists between the div class "qlist":
Code:
<div class="qlist">this is where the code goes</div>

Within this div class are two different classes that can be used. These are "qlfull" and "qlhalf". As the names suggest, qlfull is a full line, while qlhalf is half a line. Use these two wherever you wish. The code will make sure it fits in one line. Try to keep the qlhalfs even-numbered to avoid half an empty line:
Code:
<div class="qlfull"><qlq>title</qlq> answer answer answer answer. doesn't scroll/expand.</div>
<div class="qlhalf"><qlq>title</qlq> answer answer answer answer. doesn't scroll/expand.</div>


city

Whenever you add a different section and wish to include the lines that seperate the sections, use the following code:
Code:
<div class="forgedline1"></div><div class="forgedline2"></div><div class="forgedline3"></div>

To use the three images that you find underneath this block, use this code:
Code:
<div class="icons"><img src="https://via.placeholder.com/175x110/222222"><img src="https://via.placeholder.com/175x110/222222"><img src="https://via.placeholder.com/175x110/222222"></div>

To use one singular, pre-set image, use this code:
Code:
<div class="pic1"></div>

To customize the singular image into one of your own, use this code:
Code:
<div class="pic2"><img src="imageurl"></div>
