The most well known of Zoluren's Great Houses, the Human House of Sorvendig has ruled Zoluren continuously since 280.
Taking up residence in the refurbished Ulf'Hara Keep when the usurper Sirolarn was in power, the family continued to use the Keep until its destruction on 17 Shorka, 410 AV. The royal family has currently taken up residence in DiSilveron Manor, until preparations for a new residence can be further arranged.
The family gained power and influence the old fashioned way: by force and by marriage. They have strengthened their royal bloodline by marrying into House Chelochi, House Tirof, the Morzindu Weyato, the Andreshlew nation, and a coupling with then rival House Alshaerd. When marriage didn't work, they resorted to underhanded political machinations and even rumored accounts of those with dissenting opinions disappearing after visits to the Sorvendig estates.
The family lands encompass the city of Crossing and its surrounding environs.
