The Historian of Houses gives the player a look into Kurzick culture and the Great Houses around which it is formed.



"The structure of the Kurzick noble houses can be intimidating to an outsider. However it is the most important part of Kurzick society. What house you are born into effects everything. It is my duty to keep records of all the houses for public knowledge."
⇒ Tell me of House zu Heltzer.
"Members of House zu Heltzer are the leaders of the Kurzicks. Since the Jade Wind passed over the forest two hundred years ago, the zu Heltzers have lead a renaissance of thought, magic, and art. They are the greatest builders and inventors, enchanting the stone itself with magical wards and protections. Their house motto is 'The mind conquers all.' Their patron god is Dwayna."
⇒ Let's talk about something else.
⇒ Tell me of House Vasburg.
"Those of House Vasburg are the greatest warriors and fighters of the Kurzick Empire. To them battle is a perilous dance for which they train their entire lives. Their house motto is, 'Battle is the most magnificent of all the true gods' creations.' Their Patron god is Balthazar."
⇒ Let's talk about something else.
⇒ Tell me of House Brauer.
"House Brauer leads the Kurzicks in their pursuit of the aesthetic. They create great sculptures and paintings trying to bring color and life into the Empire. Their house motto is 'Beauty in everything. In everything beauty.' Their patron god is Lyssa."
⇒ Let's talk about something else.
⇒ Tell me of House Lutguardis[sic].
"House Lutgardis is responsible for creating and using musical instruments. Most notable about the house are its tree singers who attend the forever trees in the Eternal Grove. They are able to reinvigorate the forest through song. Their house motto is, 'Music is the voice of the five true Gods.' Their patron god is Melandru."
⇒ Let's talk about something else.
⇒ Tell me of House Durheim.
"House Durheim is known as the 'old house.' They are historian and scholars with an extreme reverence to the past. They claim to have a special bond with Grenth that enables them to chronicle the lives of every Kurzick. Many of House Durheim are also great poets and playwrights. Their house motto is, 'The five true gods teach us, the ancestors guide us.. Their patron god is Grenth."
