N is for Nobles

These are three of the most prominent Willsburg houses and the oddest noble family of the region.

Gloknier - One of the wealthiest noble houses in the region, the Gloknier's financed the  Portsmaw expedition a few decades ago and have since greatly expanded their wealth making wagons, carts, and other vehicles (each of which is stamped with a large gothic-looking "G"). The family has invested much in Portsmaw and expects considerable returns.

Stakeholder - The Stakeholder family has a proud history of heroism. The family earned it's noble status centuries ago, when it's heroic found slew a dreaded vampire lord. Known for their heroics and alchemy skills, the family migrated west to distance themselves from enemies (vampires have long memories) and for the new crafting opportunities.

Vigilsongs - The Vigilsongs are kin to the Stakeholders. While they're not known for their heroics, the even-tempered house has its fair share of experimental alchemists and healers. It's members commonly serve in positions of authority and are generally respected by natives.

Braidberries - While the tall and fair-haired Braidberries have noble status among the kingdom, you'd never know it by looking at them. Unlike the fops of Willsburg, the Braidberries settled the valley centuries ago, with the original settlers. While they have many farms, these rarely have a negative impact on the environment and the family has alliances with several local lizardfolk tribes.
