Dorne Near House Brax

All of the Houses shown (except for House Toland, of course) are minor, invented for the game, and explained below. For the players' House, see House Brax of Seahaven. Aside from Binders Road (the thick one), which heads down toward Sunspear and Plankytown, all other roads are nameless and local.

House Toland of Ghost Hill

  • Known For: Defensive holdings and courtly intrigue. A major banner house, to House Martell.
  • Geography: Spread throughout the Nymerian Mountains. Its seat is a keep surrounded by a city. The towers on the map are Trovion Hall (west) and Kell Tower (east).
  • Head: Lady Nymella Toland. Other family includes Lord Corbus Toland (husband), Valena Toland (heir), and Teora Toland (daughter).

House Nassan of Mercator

  • Known For: Fisheries, whalers, and oil processing. Banner to House Toland.
  • Geography: An area full of quicksand, requiring circuitous routes. Its seat is a small city right on the beach. The tower on the map is Dustmouth, a sprawling city run by Ser Yves Fenmarc.

House Cale of Kepegest

  • Known For: Trading, politics, and orchards. Banner to House Toland.

Farther Houses

Not all of these are in Dorne. This will be expanded as House Brax interacts with others.
