Abridged History of the 10th Age
|Noble House||Seat: Vignsu||Patriarch: Amadial Altrus|
The Altrus family is the oldest of the three noble houses in Vignsu. They made an ancient compact with the elves of the Haugrund to grow their ancient cold-weather vines as well as the secret to making them into wine. This secret has, of course, spread since the days that the Altrus family first took hold of it. This was some time in the late fourth century; the family has a long history going back to the foundation of the kingdom of Westreth.
Currently in a state of decline, it is whispered that the Altrus sabotage their competitors and damage their wagons; darker rumors hint that they may actually kill drivers and merchants that buy up the wines of the other two families.
