House Thuranni

Nature: Dragonmarked House
Influence: Shadow network
Mark: Shadow
Race: Elf
Totem: Displacer Beast

Once part of House Phiarlan, the elves of House Thuranni formed their own house during the Last War as the conflict began to turn various house factions against each other. Now Thuranni competes directly with Phiarlan in the areas of espionage, surveillance, and information brokering, as well as in entertainment and artisan endeavors. The two houses share the Mark of Shadow, though the newer version of the house in many ways remains the weaker of the two.

Neither elf house advertises its shadow services. Instead, the houses share a public face as entertainers and artisans of renown. House Thuranni has a darker agenda and more aggressive business tactics, however. When someone has a need for its services, or when the house has something important to sell, a representative appears in the shadows to whisper an offer with a knowing smile.


For twenty-five years, since shortly after striking out on its own, House Thuranni has run its Shadow Network from enclaves in Regalport in the Lhazaar Principalities. The house operates outposts throughout Khorvaire, but its patriarch has a fondness for Sharn, the City of Towers.

Current Leader

Baron Elar d’Thuranni (LN male elf, rogue 5/dragonmark heir 3)
Oversees the activities of the house, selling its services to clients in Karrnath, Droaam, Q'barra, and the Lhazaar Principalities, among others. Rumors persist that the baron deals with the Order of the Emerald Claw, but not even House Phiarlan has been able to confirm this.
