This is a write up on Corran House circa 1007 AC. (Corran House is the trading house of Jeddarin Corran from the first WotI adventure.)
Note that this contradicts the two-line history and description of Jeddarin Corran. Deal with it. That's what you get when you ask for stuff from people's campaign's. :)
A brief history of Corran Houseby Aaron Nowack
Corran House was originally a noble family of the Kingdom of Darokin. The family was founded in 821 AC. It was a family of the then Duchy of Darokin, which controlled the two Amsorak cities. The head of the family, Alexander Corran, was granted a small plot of land north of Fort Lakeside, where he built Corran Keep. However, he and the immediate family were slain in a bandit raid, and the noble title was forgotten over the remaining centuries.
The family survived through various means until 965, when Ansel Corran started a small trading route between Darokin City and the Borderlands. The trading operation was only moderately successful until Ansel managed to get an exclusive contract with Al-Azrad House to ship goods from Selenica to the Lake Amsorak region. The family's fortunes took off, and when Ansel's son Jeddarin took over in 992 AC, the family was the major naval shipper on Lake Amsorak. Jeddarin then started occasional caravans to Sind and Glantri, and by 1000 AC Corran House was one of the minor houses to watch, with some expecting it to become a major house in the next few decades.
In 1004 AC, agents of Corran House cleaned out the old Corran Keep, and the Jeddarin was appointed magistrate of the area. When the Master invaded, forces from this area, led by Jeddarin, were vital in slowing the Master's advance toward Akorros. This unit also saw battle at the Siege of Darokin City, the Battle of Bronsdale, and the campaign to retake Akesoli and Akorros, and received commendations for its role in each. The unit was also involved in the failed counter-invasion into Sind, though Jeddarin was not present during the fighting. More recently, Jeddarin lead forces at Favaro to stop the orcish advance south, though victory was only achieved through Shadow Elf intervention.
Fortunately, when the meteor hit Corran Keep, it was basically uninhabited, and little was lost.
Corran House Assets
Corran House maintains a fleet of five trading ships on Lake Amsorak. It still maintains the title to Corran Keep, and Jeddarin is looking for adventurers to investigate the area. Corran House also maintains five caravans, all of which are now on domestic duty, as travel to Sind and Glantri is likely to be less than successful.
Corran House maintains offices in Akesoli, Akorros, Darokin City, and Selenica.
