Origins of House Orun
House Orun hails its ancestry back to Orun the Giantslayer, a powerful warrior who drove the giants back into the grey desert and claimed the eastern part of the continent of Dracos for humanity. There they founded a proud and independent nation until they were forced to bow before House Tasanet when the first Tasanet King united Rahseld as a single kingdom.
Orun during the Rebirth War
While House Orun did it’s duty and sent men to the aid of House Tasanet during the Rebirth War, by the time their soldiers had made the long voyage to the western part of Dracos, the war was already lost. Though many in the east wished to rebel against the empire, after seeing what their weapons were capable of, Vengris Orun did the only sensible thing and surrendered, swearing the loyalty of the east to the new empire.
Many in the east (and indeed the house itself) still hold the opinion that they would be better off on their own, however they are more than willing to do their duty.
Orun during the Eagle’s War
Orun fought on the side of House Toress, though it’s location made it difficult indeed for troops to arrive as the navy of Orun is rather lacking, and their men were slaughtered when fighting against the magitech weaponry of House Gorn.
Orun during the Conquest of Ronen
Succession in House Orun goes first to the eldest son to the youngest son. Then after that, the eldest daughter to the youngest daughter. If there are no children, it passes to a male of the closest blood.
