House Lychester

Orange and white gyronny, a black talon

General Information

The Lychesters have a small square keep, though it has been allowed to fall half into ruins. The only member of the house to appear is old, great Lord Lymond Lychester. His wits are wandering and all he talks of was a deed he did in the past, when he, “held Ser Maynard at the bridge.” As no one recorded and popularized the event, Lord Lymond is not famed. All of his sons died in Robert’s War, fighting on one side or another, and he was never right in the head after that.
