This nameless house of wizards, sorcerers and alchemists is barely a house at all. Those wearing the green cube on their clothing or flesh belong to a secret society who see the world as a mess in need of devouring.
House Thomas, bitter rivals of House Trampier, are known for trickery in the ancient forests they call their home. Known for their stubborn loyalty and cunning on the battlefield, this noble house of homads has taken the Blink Dog as their heraldry and are known to welcome them in their homes as cherished four-legged members of their clan and house.
Thanks to Jim for the house words.
House Trampier, that has the Displacer Beast upon its banner, is a house of rogues, thieves and assassins. Known for their mercantile contracts with a Drow matron of the Underdark, from which their heraldry was inspired.
It looks nice with a black background too.
(Thank you, Jim and Janaki for suggestions and critique)
We were playing SWN and talking shit and Jim said something about a noble house with an owlbear as its heraldic beast. “They’d have thrown off their shackles from the indenture of some awful cabal of wizards.”
And so I spent my late afternoon making an Owlbear rampant and thinking about the family that it represents. I think David Sutherland drew the original Owlbear so perhaps House Sutherland?
Clearly I need a bunch of these. Blink Dog, Displacer Beast, Gelatinous Cube and maybe Beholder are all rattling around.
