Recruitment Status: OPEN

House Ravnore is once again open for recruitment of all character types--mortals and vampires alike.

We are looking for a few roles in particular:

-- House Staff--virtually all roles needed/accepted!
-- Scholars--ample opportunities for scholarly/mage RP
-- Business men & women--merchants, traders, craftsmen, etc!
-- Imperial Order vampires--for intrigue shadow cabal/vampire mafia RP!
-- Meretrix--high-class courtesans/escorts who double as spies & assassins
-- Pirates & Smugglers--for a small pirate crew and upcoming story arcs

We have recently completed a major guild story arc and are preparing to move into our next. We have regular nightly RP and have just run a comb through our guild structure to streamline and improve our chain of command. There are lots of exciting RP opportunities within the guild, and mortal characters are just as valued as vampires.

Visit our website to apply!



The House has had the location of Blackreach, one of the fabled lost cities of the Dwemer, for several weeks now. Thanks to the success of the House in Eastmarch and the successful defense of the Keep during the attack last month, their chances for success have greatly increased. Gideon is in sole possession of the map that shows one of the few remaining entrance's, Virius Nelius's forces have been defeated at every turn and their last ditch effort to steal the map met with failure.

But the danger isn't over. The House still must travel to the Pale and enter the fabled lost city in search of another memory cube for, Secundia Marcellina, Gideons sire and Elder within the Order. The Magister has produced several high quality hand drawn maps of the parts of Blackreach they will need to explore. Tomorrow the House rides, in force, the entire Praetorian, most of the night staff and all its members for this hidden entrance. Wagons loaded, horses ready to ride, and a area just inside the discovered lift marked for a basecamp, they were as ready as they were going to be.

Led by the Houses Champion Morriel, the warriors of Ravnore led the rest of the House deeper into Blackreach. Where the first basecamp had been established at the bottom of the lift leading into Blackreach, last night the House pushed further. Led by Morriel and with most of the warriors and scouts the House slowly worked their way inside, guided by a map that Gideon had provided his champion with.

Bal'thei'szar, Rigg, Limenia and the berserker Bjorn lead the house, weapons and shields raised through the fallen caves, and treacherous paths in search of this new chamber Gideon had deemed suitable for a new basecamp. Along their adventure they were accosted by Dwemer traps, automatons and even the vile Falmer. The party of adventures fought through several encounters but thankfully no one was critically hurt, though both Bjorn, Limenia and Bal'thei'szar were injured on the journey.

Once they reached the new camp, and found it to be secure Silene saw the injuries of those who needed tending and the party prepared the room for the rest of the House. Within an hour Gideon and his wife led the rest of the House down along with all the supplies and staff. The chamber was now full with servants and tents, crates of supplies and bustled like a small military camp. Already the Magister was preparing to send out parties to explore the fallen City in search of the Memory Cube they had come to retrieve.

One evening during the expedition, Marcellus Arius the gamekeeper led a hunting party out from camp to find food for the house. The party was made up of hunters, fishermen, trappers, scouts, herbalists, as well as mages and muscle to drive off the hostile dwemer constructs that still lingered nearby. The group visited two of the larger portions of the frozen stream above and below the encampment, placing snares for small game and then fishing with great success. Members of the party also gathered herbs and mushrooms that lay frozen beneath the snow to add to the feast. A few coneys were added to their haul, and they returned to the camp to cook and feast, satisfied with their takings.

As the stay in the depths of Blackreach continues, members of the House branched out into different parts of the underground Dwemer city, in search of the ever illusive memory cube. One evening, the House Champion, Morriel, found an icy cave leading down towards a settlement of the deformed creatures known as Falmer.

Gathering together a small strike team to hit the Falmer before any of them attack the basecamp, the group backtracked to t he valley the misshapen elves called home, only to find the area deserted. Following the tracks to the icy caves Morriel found after killing a few charrus, the party of warriors and scouts found that the Falmer settlement had been overrun just recently by some terrible evil. Statues made of ice dotted the caves, made from Falmer that had been frozen while standing and trails of blood were bodies had been dragged away dotted the caves.

Knowing that they had to investigate whatever did this before it attacked the camp, the group headed down into the damp Falmer caves, finding the place to be rancid and wet. Many of the group grew sick simply being in the thick miasma there and they only had the light of glowing rocks and mushrooms to guide them.

The party traveled in for some time before encountering the sound of drums going off further in the cave. As the signs of battle had trailed even farther in, the Champion made the executive decision to turn the group around, relying on the skills of mages in the party to seal the entrance to the cave up and keep any of the ancient evils within down there where they belong.

Finally, the last night of the expedition arrived. The house's combatants and researchers set out to finish the last leg of the journey and reach the location Gideon had marked upon the map.

The first sign of difficulty was a group of falmer which attempted to ambush the house. The scouts were dispatched easily enough, but the house soon encountered a split path--a narrow forest trail which led to an unknown destination, and the more direct path which cut directly through a falmer village.

Despite the suspicious silence from the village the house elected to press that route, only for it to be revealed as an ambush. As hundreds of falmer flooded along the icy path the house was forced to retreat and backtrack to the forest trail; fortunately the trail proved far safer, and after a few twists and turns and wrong directions the house reached their destination.

The way was barred by a door which required sacrifice in the form of mortal blood; the vampires in attendance were of little use in unlocking the door. So, as multiple mortals bled themselves in the task of unsealing the vault door, the vampires stood vanguard until the ritual was complete.

Once inside, they were greeted with the sight of another puzzle; three deactivated dwarven centurions and three pedestals. Two pedestals bore riches while the third held the memory cube the house had been sent to retrieve. The treasures were ignored in favor of retrieving the cube and getting out with minimal risk to the rest of the house. Though removing the cube caused the chamber to flood with lava, the house was able to escape with minimal injuries.

And thus the house was able to successfully retrieve the memory cube Gideon had been tasked to retrieve so many months ago, placing it back in the hands of the Order and ensuring the house remained in its good graces.

House Ravnore is still open for recruitment!

I have put out a call for RP opportunities for servants, merchants and courtesans which you can view by clicking this link.

Those are the main roles we're lacking at the moment, but we are also open to any type of mortal or vampire character so long as they fit with the guild structure.



A gathering of scholars and mages was held in the house's elegant Observatory. Gideon Ravnore spoke of how the primary duty of mages and scholars is to arm him, and thereby the house, with knowledge. Following this, Delphinia Aconite elaborated on the resources available in the house library and artifact collections, and her personal willingness to aid house members with their studies.

Haave Hlervu told of the laboratory, dueling platform and mage training grounds in the observatory. Malfyrvis Hlervu spoke of his intentions for upcoming mage training, specifically defensive abilities even for those not skilled in battle.

At the end of the formal discussions, the group adjourned to the lounge for drinks and socializing.

As the weather started to warm across the Gold Coast, House Ravnore and their allies, Swords of the Empire, gathered in the alliance village as both a means to get to know each other and to aid the plight of displaced Cyrodiil refugees.

The result was a date auction which led to a night of revelry and with a dozen or so dates being purchased--some pairings expected and others wildly not so.

The auction proved to be a huge success with the alliance's ties being further cemented and thousands of gold being raised in the sake of aiding the remnants of the Empire.

While there are a variety of characters that fit in the guild, we are looking for a few roles in particular:

-- House Staff--virtually all roles needed/accepted!
-- Scholars--ample opportunities for scholarly/mage RP!
-- Business men & women--merchants, traders, craftsmen, etc!
-- Imperial Order vampires--for intrigue shadow cabal/vampire mafia RP!
-- Meretrix--high-class courtesans/escorts who double as spies & assassins!
-- Vampiric knights--to help enforce house law and engage in an unholy crusade against veil breakers!
-- Thralls--able to fill virtually any position in the guild while also being bonded to a vampire!

Out of all of these, we are especially interested in thralls. We used to have a core of active thrall RPers, but they've grown less common over time. Thralls play an incredibly vital role for any vampire guild and are a great choice if you aren't sure you want to take the plunge and play a vampire but would like to explore darker themes.

You can read about our interpretation of thrall lore here and read more details about the thrall position(s) here.

On a late spring evening, House Ravnore gathered with their allies from Swords of the Empire to have a bit of friendly competition and a night of socializing.

First the two Imperial houses gathered outside of Anvil to watch a horse race with generous gold payouts. Then the two groups returned to the Anvil palace courtyard to spectate--and participate in, for those inclined--a few bouts of friendly sparring, while the crowd placed bets on the most likely victor.

To celebrate the Mid-Year Celebration, a holiday designed to alleviate the burden of the yearly tax increases, House Ravnore hosted a horse race and social gathering near the Anvil stables. A large crowd of Imperial citizens came out to watch and bet on the spirited horse race which opened the night's festivities.

Afterwards, jesters and other entertainers amused the crowd while the Ravnore family handed out generous gold donations to all who approached to do their part in spreading wealth to the less fortune.

House Ravnore is once again temporarily closed for recruitment.

Since we never want to prioritize numbers over quality we periodically close our doors when we feel we've reached the cap of the number we can ensure get regular, quality RP.

But, if you're still interested in RPing with us, don't hesitate to reach out! You can expect recruitment to open again likely at the beginning of September.

Recruitment Status: OPEN

House Ravnore is once again open for recruitment of all character types--mortals and vampires alike. All races except for Khajiit and Argonians are accepted, though, as an Imperial house, we always have a preference towards Imperial characters.

We are open to a variety of roles as well--you can get some ideas here. In particular, we are currently a bit light on spies, house staff, and soldiers, but any concept that fits in with our theme is welcome!

There's a lot going on in the guild right now, such as...

  • server RP both in the open world and with the Embers of the Empire Alliance
  • daily unscripted guild RP open to everyone
  • regular guild events, some for the guild as a whole and some for our divisions
  • monthly sparring tournament which awards upwards of 100k in real gold every month
  • regular scholarly lectures
  • a large sweeping guild plot set to begin in full this month
  • weekly raffles with real gold that give away 400k+ of real gold to our members every month
  • and much more!

Whether you're looking primarily for immersive Imperial RP, or a lore-friendly environment for your monster character to live behind the scenes, House Ravnore has something to offer.

We are going stronger than ever and have maintained high activity all through the summer, and since activity always picks up even more in the fall, now is an awesome time to get involved!

On the twenty-ninth day of Sun's Height, several house members gathered in the Chapel on the grounds of Carcosa for a remembrance ceremony to honor those passed. The ceremony was led by Nephele Galvia and presided over by Priestess Pomona Avidelius.

On the first Fredas in Last Seed, the vampires and mortals who willingly give their blood to the kindred of the house were summoned in the caves beneath the keep. There, bloody refreshments and expensive wine awaited as refreshments until Lord Ravnore arrived to begin the meeting.

After welcoming those in attendance, he stated the house would begin immersing itself in the local political landscape to do as the Order's tenants bid and begin steering the Gold Coast to their benefit. Afterwards, a priest of Arkay was sacrificed on the altar of Molag Bal to receive the blessings of the Kinfather before the night's real entertainment began.

To end the evening, two mortal women were brought forth. The innocent mortals were ritualistically drained dry by all the vampires in attendance as a means of linking the coven together in blood and purpose.

The house gathered for the second in a series of grand arena events hosted by one of the house's Dark Templars of the Inquisition, Bahlok.

The fighting was vicious and prolonged, but at the end of the day, the Praetor Gaius Avitus proved victorious, though he was unable to defeat Morriel who maintains the title of Arena Champion.
