House Marsh
House Marsh is a large Gothic House located in the port of Dreadfort just north of the city proper and within the Kingdom of Bolten. House Marsh was once the vassal of House Cerwyn but following a disagreement the leader of House Marsh would insult the Bolten lord at the time leading to their dismissal from House Cerwyn and rise in Dreadfort as punishment, but from there they would found the port and grow powerful in the port.

House Marsh was once the vassal of House Cerwyn and in this way they became quite powerful in the north of the Bolten lands to the point that they grew arrogant about their power. In this way they would become involved in a rivalry with House Bolten of which ultimatly ended in the Marsh War in which House Marsh was defeated by a combined Bolten force. Instead of executing the entire family they lost their Masterly House position and became a vassal of House Bolten and would return to Dreadfort. They remained weak in Dreadfort until under the reign of Kyle Bolten House Marsh would take control of the port of Dreadfort and from there utterly dominate the port. Still hating their overlord in House Bolten they became known for knighting several hedge knights of whom became the so called Marsh Houses in the form of House Mersh, and House Barsh. With their loyal houses they would become more seperated from the Boltens to the point that they took control of a number of villages north of the Dreadfort to the annoyance of House Bolten. With the rise of the conflict with Lucerne House Marsh and their loyal vassals sent half their forces westward where they worked alongside House Hornwood and for this reason escaped the retreat eastward without many casualties. Returning to the port they have become a great fear for the Boltens of whom know that when the Lucernians arrive Bowen Marsh is going to side with them.

House Barsh is a medium sized Gothic House located north of Dreadfort in the forests and controlling Lakewold Hold and inside the Kingdom of Bolten. House Barsh forms the pair of houses that people call the Marsh Houses alongside House Mersh and in this way they are known for their diehard loyalty to their masterly house in the form of House Marsh.

House Barsh has the same sigil, and colors as House Marsh except that they color one of the frogs on their sigil in the color blue. 

House Barsh would first begin when House Marsh had grown tired of being weak and used the weak rule of Kyle Bolten to enact their own rise. Still hating their overlord in House Bolten they became known for knighting several hedge knights of whom became the so called Marsh Houses in the form of House Mersh, and House Barsh. With their loyal houses they would become more seperated from the Boltens to the point that they took control of a number of villages north of the Dreadfort to the annoyance of House Bolten. In this expansion House Barsh would take the castle called Lakewold Hold which was in complete disrepair and would be given command of it by House Marsh as a reward. With the rise of the conflict with Lucerne House Marsh and their loyal vassals sent half their forces westward where they worked alongside House Hornwood and for this reason escaped the retreat eastward without many casualties.
