House Vorstagg of Cheliax
A diabolic army of Assassins, Spies, Diabolists, Poisoners, Rogues and Blackguards in the service of a nefarious Baron Vorstagg of the Chelaxian Noble Line of Thrune.
The House of Thrune is an ancient noble house in Cheliax whose adherance to the tenets of the philosophy of Diabolism long predates the fall of Aroden. House Thrune took the throne of Cheliax 34 years after Aroden’s death, ending decades of civil war. The Treaty of Egorian was signed on the 19th day of Calistril, 4640 AR, marking the commencement of the rule of House Thrune over Cheliax and its territories. Loyalty Day is held each year on the anniversary of the signing the treaty to honor the Thrune Ascendancy.
Much of the history of Cheliax prior to the Thrune Ascendancy has been erased by the agents of House Thrune. New history books are produced monthly and the Order of the Rack have made it their responsibility to ensure that libraries and universities have the most up to date copies, burning the old editions in so called ‘clarity pyres’.
The armies of House Thrune are supplemented with the bound denizens of Hell. Other agents of the ruling house include the various orders of Hellknights. Nobles from the House of Thrune regularly enter into dark pacts with infernal agents in return for incredible power. Other noble house have followed House Thrune’s lead in this practice. House Vorstagg is an excellent example of this, with it’s many Tiefling Assassins and Hellknights Fey’ri Necromancers and Blackguards, and Cambion Agents.
