Lords over the County of Fairpeak

House Reignsford was a common house, now raised into noble status. Through the grace of Duke Maxen Montclair and Baroness Cassandra Lyon, Thomas Reignsford was given the task of restoring life to a tainted land known as The Withering Wood, partitioning it from the remainder of Sarcelfen, thus creating the Barony of Heartsgrove.

Through the combined efforts of Thomas and Sir Roy Sebale, a Captain in the Regiment and Master Mage of Sarceline, along with support from the soldiers of the First Regiment, a way to end the magical affliction that created the Withering Wood was discovered. Unfortunately, Baroness Cassandra did not live to see the day. In recognition of his own contributions, Sir Roy was to be granted stewardship of the Barony of Sarcelfen. With his vow to restore Heartsgrove fulfilled, Thomas felt it only right to reincorporate the land to its du jure state as part of Sarcelfen. After expressing his thoughts to His Grace, Duke Maxen, it was agreed. In exchange, Duke Maxen elevated Thomas to the status of Count, giving him stewardship over the long neglected County of Fairpeak as well as its unclaimed baronies, Graywatch and Silverhal.

History[]

Due to it's relatively young status, there is little significant history beyond that of its progenitor, Thomas Reignsford.

A commoner class family of hunters, leatherworkers, and herbalists, they lived by Stone Cairne Lake for generations prior to the First War. After fleeing to Stormwind City and eventually Lordaeron, the Reignsfords lived in Southshore for a brief time before returning to their homes once the lands had been reclaimed after the Second War. The following years were prosperous for the family and Thomas grew in his father's footsteps, taking up a life of hunting and providing leathers for vendors. Eventually when he came of age, Thomas married a woman named Shana Haggard, built a house of their own next to his parents, and in time had a child.

As world events unfolded, Thomas began to adventure out to new lands to supply various new leathers; Kalimdor, Northrend, even the alien world of the Outlands occasionally. Thomas was on one such trip when the Cataclysm struck. The following invasion of Blackrock Orcs resulted in the lost lives of his parents and his wife. After grieving for sometime, Thomas resolved to do all he could to prevent others from suffering the same loss and joined the King's Army.

Rising in rank and earning accolades for his efforts, Thomas was raised into knighthood and then nobility.

Current Status[]

House Reignsford holds little power and influence in the political arena outside of Thomas' natural rustic charm and the respect he's earned for his personal achievements. Their holdings, the County of Fairpeak, had suffered from many years of neglect prior to Thomas' appointment. Militarily, the Reignsfords can raise a force of roughly 100 knights, 285 men-at-arms, and 180 archers.
