Default Ascalon of Estersand & Sandmark

HOUSE ASCALON
by day or night
A228-present




Sigil: quarterly sable and gules, to dexter chief a sun eclipsed
Motto: by day or night


House Ascalon has ruled Estersand since A228, being formed by Lord Darres Solvitreo granting the city to one of his cousins and favorite generals, Melchior Solvitreo, who took the surname of Ascalon, from an Old Edolene myth of Milena, whose cult was (and is) highly popular in Estersand.

The family has always emphasized charity and good works, taking noblesse oblige very seriously. Unfortunately, the last ten years have been harder for the port with the northern trade cut down, and though they’ve recovered somewhat by increased trade southward with Meridiez and Rhegedren, House Ascalon has had to curtail its usual open-handed charity, leading to some unrest among their vassals and dependents. That has been mostly solved within the city itself by a tax on prostitution- as Estersand's flourishing brothel district has been part of the city for time immemorial, now it can more directly contribute to the coffers of its lords. The down side of such ingenuity is of course, disgruntled high priests.

Rumor is that some of the brothels are directly operated by agents of the Ascalon family but of course that rumors been around for almost longer than House Ascalon has ruled Estersand. The fact that the Fornicatasi, the priestesshood sworn to Milena, and some of the wilder Bromiad cults hold sway in Estersand has contributed to the rumors of rivalries over brothel territory.

Lord Gylbert's passion has been for hunting dogs and falcons for the last few years, to the extent it is jested that he forgot there was a war on, and he does not seem to care what grumbling goes on among his family or the godly orders so long as he can go hunting.
