Steelhart


Vassal of Wyrmguard

Words: "Heavy Hearts, Heavy Steel"
Sigil: A Black Dog Towers over a White Wolf on a Field of Gray
Nicknames: Dogs of War

To see a Steelhart smile was a rare thing, more commonplace are their somber frowns and cold eyes. While not Valardin's oldest vassal house, House Steelhart had served dutifully from the day they bent the knee to the Valardin kings of old. A history of warfare followed this House, against shavs, House Valardin's enemies, and tragically, even amongst themselves. Highhill Hounds was their chief export, a breed of mastiffs that are as large as wolves, known for their gentle attitude towards their masters and their fierceness in battle, earning the Steelharts their nickname. A unique tradition was found in Steelhart's lands, if one member of the House, soldier, knight, or family, draws their sword against another, they are honorbound to fight to the death. This had led to many civil skirmishes and at one point in ancient times, a bloody war.

The house was presumed to be completely destroyed by an Abandoned attack on Highhill in February of 1011 AR.

Ruins of Highhill

Description: A large town overlooked by the Steeltower, Highhill was located on the bluffs of the Oathlands, west of the Telmarch and bordering the sea. House Steelhart had faced constant raids from shav pirates, and little fishing villages on the coast the bluffs overlook owed their protection to the rulers of the Highhill. The Steeltower itself was a tall single tower surrounded by walls reinforced with steel shields. It acted as a lighthouse during the night, and was easily seen from miles away.

The house was presumed to be completely destroyed by an Abandoned attack on Highhill in February of 1011 AR.
