House Seliki's ancestry is rooted in the potential of making something from nothing. Founded by former thralls generations ago, they were granted the land by House Deepwood with the understanding that if they can defend it and make something of it, they had earned it. So they did. When thralls manage to safely make the distance between the Maelstrom and the shore, it is House Seliki that is the first to welcome them and help them integrate into their newfound freedom. They take their duties as guardians of the shore quite seriously, and while they also tend to be industrious, in most other matters they are very relaxed. They save the burdens of stress and anxiety for when they are called for to use that energy for the task at hand. They can often seem almost too relaxed when it comes to those who don't understand their point of view, but when the time comes for seriousness, whether in matters of politics, war, or industry, their focus is razor sharp.

Description: Resting atop a cliff that overlooks the Mourning Sea, the County of Pearlspire rests along Old Oak's north-eastern shore of the Mourning Sea, a guardian looking over the expanse of water between the continent and the Tyde Isle. The boats that sail from Pearlspire rarely venture too far out, and the local focus is more on what bounty the sea can offer close to shore. The county seat rests upon the side of cliff overlooking the water, and some claim that on a clear night, one can see the lights of Tyde Hall across the water. Access to Pearlspire from the from the beach below is meant to be a difficult climb unless one is intimately familiar with the cliffside. Pearldiving is a very prominent industry in the County, particularly among disciples of Mangata, in the belief that Mangata favors them enough to offer up her secret treasures. Cliffdiving is a popular local sport in the surprisingly warmer waters than one might expect for being relatively further north.
Landmarks: The creators of the Great Road, with it leading to Pearlspire.
Recently built the Portress, a combination port and fortress. This has rapidly become one of the foremost ports in the Crownlands, and a key installation for docking caravels outside of Arx. Care has been taken to be certain the ships coming to Pearlspire do not disturb the oyster beds.
Recent large scale infrastructure improvements so Pearlspine can help house large numbers of former thralls who might come as refugees.
An entirely new town in Breckendale Vale has been established made up of former thralls.
