Default Carolin of Moonspire

House Carolin
by which all increases
273-present








Sigil: Per pale vert and argent, an oak tree eradicated counterchanged
Motto: By Which All Increases

Compared to its much longer history, House Carolin has only recently come into possession of Moonspire through a marriage to the heiress of House Yardley. The Carolins, once a vassal house, now hold the town of Moonspire, a bustling piece of civilization in the empty center of Westridge.


Moonspire sits in the heart of the Moon Valley, between the tall limestone foothills of the Andersridge - a range of ancient, weathered, roundtopped mountains that are little more than pine-choked hills. Moon Valley is noted for its abundant wildlife and lumber yards. Coincidentally, furs and lumber are its chief exports, and the town also does a brisk trade in game meats. Annual Allowances to hunt in the valley’s forests are given out at every New Year’s Day and expire at the end of the year. Allowances are not always rewarded to the same people year after year, and poaching is a crime punishable by death. As a result, since the town was founded, there has never been an epidemic of overhunting or overfishing in the Kingswash, the river running south of Moonspire.


The Kingswash itself is partly to thank for Moonspire’s success, as it is among the fastest (and coincidentally, most dangerous) rivers in Edolon, and deep and wide enough to support a flat-bottomed river ship, especially in the spring when the snows melt at the river’s source in the western mountains. It is an exceedingly cold body of water, even in the dead of summer, and considered the single best source of freshwater trout in the kingdom.


The seat of House Carolin is Greensward, a motte-and-bailey castle purely of Edolene origin and seemingly untouched by the influence of Asserya. It does not have the luxury of many Southshores and some Kingsreach castles and palaces, but it is perfectly suited for its ‘Ridge settings, able to be easily warmed in the winter and remaining cool through the summer.


Moonspire is known to be a bastion for the cults of Erianthe, and on the goddess' Holy Days, many of her order make the journey from all over the kingdom to attend rituals and partake in House Carolin's generosity. Currently, the title of High Priestess is held by Lord Carolin's eldest sister, who is quite powerful in her own right and regarded as her brother's equal in most ways. As a result, there are more than a few dark rumors circulating about the nature of the relationship between the two; it is one of the few taboo subjects within the walls of Greensward and has been the source of several vassals' downfall in recent times.
