House Lyrandar consists of half-elves with the Mark of
Storm. The house appeared in pre-Galifar Thrane two
thousand years ago, but today it operates out of Aundair
to avoid the restrictive rule of Thrane’s theocracy. The
house matriarch, Esravash d’Lyrandar, oversees both the Raincallers
Guild and the Windwrights Guild from the island
paradise of Stormhome, which the house created off the
coast of Aundair.
The Raincallers Guild helps farmers across Khorvaire, as well as any others who need to affect the weather in a localized area. The Windwrights Guild controls a vast shipping and transporation business that operates in the air and across the seas.
With outposts in Breland, Aundair, Zilargo, Thrane, Valenar, and Karrnath, House Lyrandar’s shipping and transporation services rival those of House Orien, and the two often compete over contracts that could be fulfilled over either land or sea. The half-elves find few opportunities in the Lhazaar Principalities, however, and often come into conflict with ships of the Lhazaar princes in the open seas.
