Crovane


Vassal of Redrain


Words: "We Fear No Storm"
Sigil: An enormous, stylized black tree underneath a storm cloud
Nickname: Axe

Centuries ago, the noble Proudwoods of the Gray Forest were slaughtered to a man by Abandoned hordes. The leader of the barbarous coalition asserted himself and suppressed his fellows in the wake, pledging loyalty to the crown through force of arms; thus were the prodigal Crovanes, the Axemen, raised to nobility. In the years since, they have maintained a firm hold on power and scandalously close ties to the Abandoned, serving as a bulwark on the mountains and developing relations with their Thraxian neighbors. House Crovane is known most for its exotic black lumbers and mineral wealth, and the deeply traditional (some say wild) character of its people.

Stormwall

Description: On the far northeast of Arvum, Stormwall sits as a last port along the coast that sits along the edge of the Gray Forest meeting the Everwinter, with to the west the Stormridge mountain range separates the duchy from the rest of the Northlands. A relatively new duchy, the Crovane lands represent a thin holding against lands traditionally raided by reavers from the Mourning Isles, in particular those from House Grimhall. During the invasion by the Gyre 5/16/1008 AR, the City of Stormwall was completely destroyed when the defending forces of the Compact set the city ablaze in order to eradicate all the Gyre forces that were fighting trapped in the city. Before winter fell that year, Stormwall was seen entirely rebuilt in stone from the Stormridge mountain range.

Landmarks: In 1007 AR, as part of the Pilgrimage Path, House Crovane has funded the construction of the Crovane Wilderness Preserve, a place of honor for Petrichor with some of the oldest woods of Crovane lands, that has forbidden poaching.

Also in the same year, Duke Asger Crovane saw a tall tower built called the Aerie of Storms as a place of worship for shamans to seek the wisdom of storm spirits or pray for boons for sea travel. Open to the elements at the top of the tower, shamans scribe their wisdom they hear from their prayers upon the walls of the maze like lower floors as they leave the tower.

In 1009 AR the Duchess Ann Crovane oversaw the opening of a free craftsman's school in Stormwall called the Arterius College, thereby fulfilling a promise made to Guildmaster Joscelin Arterius made during the rebuilding of Stormwall.

From 1009 AR to 1010 AR, the Great Road was built on Crovane lands.

To celebrate the marriage of Duchess Fianna Crovane and Lord Kaldur Seliki, a combination port and fortress was established.

Trends: The Lodge of Petrichor has become a frequent guest on Crovane lands, and the amount of rangers and survivalists that are springing up among the prodigals of House Crovane has significantly increased.
