The Rise of the Noble Houses


I n the time after Emitria called demons down on the world the gods convened a great council to discuss a solution to the strife in the world. From this council came a great mandate given to the world that the heavens would never again allow a guild to seek a throne over Necromium. Only destruction would await. Neither would the Academy be allowed to seek a throne, lest they be destroyed. The Academy is there only to teach. To ensure these mandates were obeyed it was given to the Royal Guard to watch over all the houses, but they too were forbidden to seek the throne on pain of destruction. Thus was it left to the noble houses, those controlled by mortal men, to seek the throne.

And so the gods descended onto the world and gave each of the noble houses a great scepter with which to rule the world. Yet the guard would only recognize a single house as the ruler, but only if they would pledge fealty to them. Soon the houses were at war, each claiming the throne. During such a time many houses were destroyed, others fell into ruin, and others faded away into nothing more than a memory. The few left looked to the gods to set right the houses but the heavens were silent. Soon all the houses were abandoned and the throne of Necromium was lost.

Disheartened and ashamed the Royal Guard disappeared into legend. It was said that they still existed, waiting for a day when the Noble Houses would be reclaimed and rediscovered and the throne created anew. Rumors abounded that the cityguards of the major cities were descendants of the guard, watching for the time and day of the return.
