Vassal of Thrax

Words: "Fear is the guardian of hate."
Sigil: A Cross by the Sea
Nickname: Grims.

Though the name 'Grimhall' is said to come from a bastardization of Grihem the Explorer, a legendary figure who led the Arvani to the bountiful isle in the Mourning Sea now known as Grihem's Point, much of the house's bloody history has justified a dark cloud at the mention of its name. While a handful of Dukes of Grimhall have been respected, or even loved, the majority have attempted to 'out-Thrax the Thraxians' by demonstrating a callous brutality of their vassals and attempting to rule through fear. Rivals of House Tyde, the destruction of that ancient house did very little to restrain the violent excesses from House Grimhall.

Grihem's Point

Description: Grimhem's Point is possibly among the richest among holdings in the Mourning Isles. However, the prosperity is very unevenly distributed across the population, with quite possibly one of the greatest disparities of any domain in the Compact, and enough even some of the most conservative and least egalitarian of nobles find it distasteful. The life of the average citizen is one of strife - expensive and degenerate living conditions. It also possesses the highest ratio of thralls in the world which drives down production and labor costs to almost nothing.

Landmarks: In mid 1007 AR, House Grimhall funded the construction the Hall of Fallen Heroes in honor of the Queen of Endings, a somber place for burial of the honored dead. In addition, they also constructed a Hall of Justice for the Sentinel, a place of recording law and training for many of the women of the Isles who become lawyers and judges.

Trends: As the most socially conservatives of all the Isles, there's pronounced mix feelings about the construction of the two new monuments to honor the gods. Most of the Grimhall vassals believe it is right and proper to honor the gods, though they want it to be on their terms, and strongly object to other pilgrims trying to impose their values upon Grimhall. Despite more progressive figures in the Isles pushing egalitarian ideals embraced by the rest of the Compact, men visiting the Hall of Justice find a cold welcome by the traditional Islander view that law is a woman's domain, and similarly they find it difficult to accept female warriors being buried at the Hall of Fallen Heroes.
