When the Baron heard this he immediately offered the Lord rulership over Edgemont and the Stone Bottom Vale. Although the Lord is in charge of all the lands of the Northern Barony from the Celes to Badlands, he seldom interferes with issues outside of the Edegemont area, allowing Stone Bottom and other small towns to police themselves.

The Instellius’ are the the last remaining family who are tied to the Llancrest dynasty.

They were given rule over Talon Valley, whcih was everything east of the Celes river from the Norwood in the north to Elfwood Bay in the south.

  • Duke Vadarin: A recent addition the rolls of royalty. Vadarin is the duke of the small duchy of Freestead, which lies between ranges of the Central Dragonclaws. A few years ago when orc and goblin armies poured out of the Dragonclaws, they almost overran the kingdom. Vadarin rallied the troops, and those of the nearby dwarf kingdoms to push back the invasion. The duke at the time was killed during the invasion and Baron O’Halloran had no problems promoting Vadarin to the new position.
  • Halvdann Black: Not many non-humans hold positions of power in the Barony but Halvdann Black is one of them. This dwarf has been running the Llancrest Barony smoothly for many years and keeps the overland trade running from north to south. His people all seem to love the man and he has made sure to take care of the duchy both in times of peace and war.
