The Dragonmarked Houses

Dragonmarked Houses are organizations that are based on bloodlines descended from families that first manifested dragonmarks. Not all members of the Houses have dragonmarks; nor is it an assurance of power. Talent is considered a better choice. Most common people have at least a small amount of House blood in their ancestry, usually unnoticed.

The Dragonmarked Houses are the cornerstone of the economy of Khorvaire. Most banking, security, communications, transportation and fabrication are run by the Dragonmarked Houses. The Houses use their exclusive access to the powers of dragonmarks to sustain their economic empires that extend far beyond arcane powers of the dragonmarks themselves. The Houses can attribute most of their success to their meticulously crafted reputations for standardization and quality that have elevated bearers of dragonmarks with a status that mundane wizards and artificers cannot possibly match.

The thirteen Dragonmarked houses are as follows;

House Medani – The Mark of Detection
House Tharashk – The Mark of Finding
House Vadalis – The Mark of Handling
House Jorasco – The Mark of Healing
House Ghallanda – The Mark of Hospitality
