The North Tower
The Fryan Order teaches the Wisdom of the House of Thunder, we are the Hosts of Warriors who protect the land and rule from afar.
Let Lightning be my Blade and Thunder my Shield.
Head of The Fryan Order and Head of the Department of Response – Sten Darkstorm
The Fryan train specific arts of battle meditation that were handed down from the Ueahrn to our Tower when we first met their kind. It was an immense undertaking and as mortals we could never truly master the art but it is the size of the undertaking that underlines out ethos. Through calm determination we learn our art, knowing that we can, in our lifetimes or perhaps in no-one’s lifetime can ever achieve. What we can do is protect the people that we shoulder in our duties, in their quest for knowledge or their right to protect one another. We work hard, endlessly, tirelessly. We train daily, nightly, constantly. We prepare perfectly, endlessly, harmoniously. There is a rage in all of us and in no place less powerful than the heart of the raging storm and that is what beats at our heart and that is what we must overcome each day.
Areas of Power
Control of Anger
Alongside the Code of the College we follow a specific list of Duties and general orders that keep us within the remit of the College:
- Protection of the other members of the College during the execution of their own duties
- Answering the call to Battle that the CoCP will put out during times of crisis
- To lead missions operated by guildfolk from the various guilds should no other College Official be present
Ueahrn House of Thunder – Allied to The North Tower
Lady of the House: Shasheeth Shar
Owing Fealty to: The Collegium of the Thundering Hosts
Vassal Houses: The House of the Valordian Winds, The House of Rasheet Rhar, The of the Storm Blade guardians of the Thundering Hosts
Specialising in: Fearless Battle, Summoned hosts, protection and guardianship, Rulership
Enemies: The House of Granite, The House of Wisps and Smoke, The House of Bitter Winds
The houses carries an angry storm cloud as its symbol.
The House of Thunder have long been the house most favoured by the Collegium of the Thundering hosts, dispatching their justice and forming the predominance of the elemental armies on the plane of storms. Honour, duty and composure are watchwords for the extremely noble house of Thunder, ruling as they do over thousands of their kin, they are expected to be wise, fair and quick to action against threats to those that they protect. Such attitude has won them the respect and admiration of many of the other houses and their own people, which they return in kind and modestly endure.
Those pacted with the House of the thunder are expected to act with honour and integrity when dealing with allies and potential friends. They are expected to protect those that are seen to respect or serve them and bring a level head to any difficult situation. Failure to do so will result in the immediate breaking of the pact between the house and College member.
Pacting to the House
When a character joins the Northern Tower they become pacted to the House of Thunder and are expected to follow its ethos. It is to this house that you will owe your duty in return for the strength and powers that they give you. With them you will perform many duties and see your power swell as the pact between you strengthen.
