The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters
House Lyrandar consists of half-elves with the Mark of Storm. The house appeared in pre-Galifar Thrane two thousand years ago, but today it operates out of Aundair to avoid the restrictive rule of Thrane’s theocracy. The house matriarch, Esravash d’Lyrandar (NG female half-elf, expert 7/dragonmark heir 2), oversees both the Raincallers Guild and the Windwrights Guild from the island paradise of Stormhome, which the house created off the coast of Aundair.
The Raincallers Guild helps farmers across Khorvaire, as well as any others who need to affect the weather in a localized area. The Windwrights Guild controls a vast shipping and transporation business that operates in the air and across the seas.
With outposts in Breland, Aundair, Zilargo, Thrane, Valenar, and Karrnath, House Lyrandar’s shipping and transportation services rival those of House Orien, and the two often compete over contracts that could be fulfilled over either land or sea. The half-elves find few opportunities in the Lhazaar Principalities, however, and often come into conflict with ships of the Lhazaar princes in the open seas.
