House Penrose

The House of Penrose is one of the oldest noble families on Corwyn, which once ruled the Kingdom of Adar and later founded the Freehold of Dorada.

The Penroses were an ambitious noble family who controlled a vassal state in the ancient kingdom of Amar.

In the year 210/4, King Osric Garigan of Amar, chose Duke Elroth Penrose to lead a massive military expedition into the East and conquer the region.

Over the centuries, Adar became increasingly corrupt and evil. Due to this situation, there was a schism in the family; one branch remained loyal to the Adari court, while a second group; led by Adleroth Penrose, challenged the evil practices of the king.

As a result, Elroth and his followers were banished from Adar forever and became known as "the Exiles."

Adleroth and his group moved west, back to Amar; unfortunately, because of their family's dark reputation, they were not welcomed there either. Adleroth and his family kept moving further west into the Eastvale; part of the Highlands region of Corwyn.

Once there, Adleroth established a new independent settlement called Dorada; which he called a "Freehold."
