Whispers of Forgotten Ages
Stormhome is an island city at the north edge of the Scions Sound. It is the home of House Lyrandar. The scions of Lyrandar use their dragonmark powers to maintain a temperate climate on the island, despite its extreme northern longtitude, proximity to the Frostfell and its location on the coast of the Bitter Sea. The island itself is informally House Lyrandar territory even though it is protected by an Aundairian garrison. Stormhome is the seat of House Lyrandar’s power and its matriarch, Esravash d’Lyrandar makes her home here as well. The island, once a desolate place of little worth, is now a bustling paradise, the home of many Ghallanda resorts as well as the Lyrandar enclave itself.
While known for lavish resorts the city of Stormhome has long been a destination for clandestine activities and meetings. Heads of state, leaders of drangonmarked houses, and black marketeers can be found attending secret meetings or exchanging goods and information. While the airship docking tower dominates the highest point in the city the ports of Stormhome are always busy and sea commerce dominates the economy of this island paradise.
Despite the high profile nature of Stormhome many refugees and free spirits call the city home. As the Last War raged on displaced people from across the continent found their way to the island. Perhaps due to the lonely history of half-elves in Khorvaire or because a cold heart is bad for business, during the war captains of the House were known for providing aid whenever possible. In addition, Scions of House Lyrandar had a standing order to bring “individuals of interest” to the island and those with skills or knowledge deemed important to the House were always offered work and generous compensation. As a result of these efforts Stormhome is one of the most diverse cities outside of Sharn.
