Rise of the Thrall Lord
A small quiet village, the primary occupation of Ravenford’s three hundred inhabitants is fishing and farming. The village and nominally the surrounding territory are ruled by a hereditary Barony that seems to never last more than a generation or so.
The current Baron, Griswold, is the fourth son of the old Baron of Penwick. He had to fight to win his own lands and titles and was a warrior of some renown in his younger days. He was awarded the titles to the Town of Ravenford when he slew the Dragon Ullarak who had slain the previous Baron.
Griswold’s wife, Gracelynn, is the only sibling of the current Duke of Dunwynn, who has yet to produce an heir. This has made Gracelynn and Griswold’s daughter, Andrella, a potential asset or liability to all the surrounding nobility.
