Vassal of Darkwater
Words: "May the blood of my enemy spill upon the shore."
Sigil: Great Beast lanced by many harpoons, its blood soaking the shore black.
Nickname: Harpoons. Black Bloods.
House Blackshore gained its name from the terrible battle fought against 'those twisted by the Great Beast' during the Reckoning. For many centuries, the honorable vassals were known for their naval military tactics, keen business sense and thirst for knowledge that led many of the descendents to explore the seas and collect a rather large library on creatures of the Deep. Stories of sirens, merfolk and sea serpents filled the library's shelves. Perhaps it was their thirst of knowledge that led to the downfall of Blackshore. There have been rumors for the last several decades that the men of the bloodline have been twisted by the darkness they once spilled on their rocky shores. Last year, Blackshore Keep and the bustling port town nearby were destroyed by what some whisper was dragon fire. The isle stayed abandoned for a year, until House Darkwater found the last living heir of Blackshore and named her baroness. Perhaps the family will fare better under a matriarch. Currently the new baroness seeks to rebuild her isle.
Description: Currently just marked by an outdoor shrine and dock, this site will in time be the new keep on Blackshore Isle. Industries that once thrived in this holding are: fishing, whaling, exotic skins, lamp oil, candlemaking, and ship building.
