The Dragonmarked Houses

The Dragonmarked Houses

The dragonmarks are believed to be a manifestation of the mysterious Draconic Prophecy. However, even the wisest sages do not know their true nature and purpose. The marks are more than random mutations, appearing only on members of certain bloodlines and races.
The families that bear these marks have used the power and influenced gained from the marks to dominate the economy of Khorvaire.

The Houses have formed an alliance called the Twelve in order to protect their mutual interests and to pursue research common to all of them.

When the nations of Khorvaire were united under Galifar Wynarn I, the king instituted the Korth Edicts. These laws prevent any member of the dragonmarked houses from owning land or holding any title of nobility.
