Vassal of Halfshav
Words: "Mountains do not yield."
Sigil: A white fist striking a black mountain on a red background.
Nickname: Mountain Giants.
The march of Giant's Reach changed hands a few times in the annals of forgotten history, but House Sanna has held it for a few solid centuries now. Founded by Sanna Alya, a dual wielding axe fighting knight who slaughtered as many shavs as - allegedly - she took husbands (her own and other people’s), the House has lasted across centuries of bloody fighting to stand tall and proud in their mountain stronghold. There was a small internal war when they first swore their loyalty to the newly ennobled Halfshavs, resolved as internecine squabbles often are: by a marriage, a beheading, and a few barrels of whiskey. Sannas are reputed to be stubborn, outrageous truthspeakers, and possessed of great intestinal fortitude. It’s considered unwise to stand between a Sanna and their goal, because they are disinclined to take circuitous routes and will simply stride right over you.

Description: A mountain stronghold built into a network of caves and heated by a geothermic series of geysers that may one day turn into the kind of volcanic activity that no mountain stronghold will come back from, it's difficult to find your way into Giant's Reach without knowing the mountains very well, but once found it's unforgettable: pillars and colonnades of black and white stone encircle a central courtyard pool of precious water and heat, and the great wings of the keep stretch out in all directions around it. The wealth of Giant's Reach is largely in the network of mines delving deep into the mountains, rich veins of silver and copper, and an abundance of barely-tapped diamond deposits.
