Vassal of Velenosa

Words: "Grasp roses with care."
Sigil: A white sword entwined with roses.
Nickname: Roses.

While the city-state of Tor enjoys the same infamy among Arvum as the rest of the Lyceum, House Fidante's close proximity to the Oathlands and loose ties with House Valardin have in recent years grudgingly won the reputation for honorable behavior among many of its doubters. As arguably the most powerful vassal house of House Velenosa, House Fidante acts as a bulwark against any potential aggression from the westlands and would be the first thrust into conflict with House Valardin despite their ties.

Description: On the borders to the Oathlands, many say Tor in ages past used to belong to House Valardin and has been the site of more than one bitter border conflict between House Valardin and the Lyceum. The city-state of Tor feels more like a fortress than the welcoming trading hub that it is, but its key location between the Oathlands and the Lyceum, however little much the Lyceum and House Valardin may like one another, has made it a wealthy and prosperous city.

Also called, 'The city of roses', Tor is famous for its gardens despite its militant nature and has unmistakable western influences in its appreciation of chivalry which are at odds with Lycene mores. With the most lush, diverse array of flora of anywhere in the Lyceum, Tor is a chief supplier of herbal based ointments, cosmetics, dyes, and remedies throughout the Compact, with Tor Apothecary College being one of the respected institutions for studying that craft, and Tor's dominance over apothecaries has made it a traditional trade rival with Southport. Also one of the primary exporters of emeralds.

Trends: Founding member of the Empyrean Trade Route.
