The Dragonmarked Houses of Khorvaire

The 13 Dragonmarked Houses of Khorvaire are both economic and political giants. Each house uses their familial mark to establish a monopoly on the respective trade. In total there are 13 marked houses, but only 12 marks (House Thuranni and Phiarlan both bear the Mark of Shadow). There used to be another house called House Vol, but that house (along with the Mark of Death) was eradicated in the War of the Mark.

The 13 remaining houses and their respective marks and economic empires are as follows:

House Cannith Mark of Making Humans Magical research and invention
House Deneith Mark of Sentinel Humans Mercenary powerhouse
House Ghallanda Mark of Hospitality Halflings Housing and food related
House Jorasco Mark of Healing Halflings Healing (duh)
House Kundarak Mark of Warding Dwarves Protection of goods
House Lyrandar Mark of Storm Half-elves Airships and weather
House Medani Mark of Detection Half-elves Detectives and sentries
House Orien Mark of Passage Humans Travel and teleportation
House Phiarlan Mark of Shadow Elves Divination, illusions, and entertainment
House Sivis Mark of Scribing Gnomes Translators, diplomats, communication
House Tharashk Mark of Finding Half-orcs Locating people and objects
House Thuranni Mark of Shadow Elves Espionage, sabotage, information
House Vadalis Mark of Handling Humans Almost anything animal related

There are 2 other “unofficial” Dragonmarked Houses that are as follows:

House Vol (extinct) Mark of Death (no longer exists) Elves Unknown
House Tarkanan Aberrant Marks All dragonmarked races Assassinations, mercenaries, thievery


Dragonmarked Houses and Names

Each House is made up of several families, and the original family. For example, House Deneith has members with the last name “Swift” and the last name “Deneith.” When addressing a member of a Dragonmarked House, you say their full name and add " d’ " before the name of the Dragonmarked House. If they come from the original family, you can say either “Mandon Deneith” or “Mandon d’Deneith” but for a Swift, you would say “Pielan Swift d’Deneith.” If the member does not come from a family with a last name or is the child of such a marriage, it is acceptable to address them with the " d’ " (Mandon d’Deneith works if Mandon is a true Deneith or not, but Mandon Deneith is only allowed if he is a member of the original family).
