Welcome to the House of the Argent Aspis

The House of the Argent Aspis
House Aspis is located on East Ring Road, on the bluffs above the Locksmehr River. You may recall delivering many a message to our doorkeeper, George. You may also recall Aspis being the last house you wanted to trek out to for a few silvers. Well, it's this trek that makes our House so inviting. You will find a quiet haven within her sturdy walls. A warm fire, good friends, and easy laughs.

Aspis is non-political in that we are not affiliated with any organization, race, or profession. We welcome the wide variety of inhabitants in the lands as long as they show themselves worthy. We sponsor periodic functions such as the Festival of Learning, our infamous Bard Fest, Murder Mysteries, House Hunts, and in the past - the celebrated Gladiatorial Games, along with House activities for members only.

Many members are willing to give tours and answer questions. This is a good way to make yourself known to us and get a gander at the House - recommended for all prospective members.

Did you know that your House Pin (available for purchase downstairs in the house) can be tapped for instant, magical transportation from anywhere in the world back to the Aspis gates once per month?  Come by for a visit!

  • Name that Dwarf!
    Wait, wait...We mean name that dwarf. He may be a 'goon', he may be a 'toon' but no matter what, he is our dwarf. There is an as yet un-named dwarven guard standing at the door of the new embassy in Ta'Illistim. What IS his name? Does he have a story? Why is he at that door? Does anyone know? 

    You see a burly dwarven war veteran, resplendent in his green and silver Aspis tabard and gleaming silver chain mail. A highly polished helmet shades his broken nose and beady, skeptical gaze. He maintains a sound grip on his ornamental halberd and attempts a pleasant expression.

    Do you have the perfect name for this dwarf? Send his name (and any story you have about his background) by carrier bird to the official House Mailing List*. Let our esteemed leader Aurien and the ever perfect Queen Maeve be the judges. Queen Maeve tells us..."amusing may tip our vote." Our ever quirky yet always handsome leader has given no hints as to where his vote lies but one can assume from past actions a pretty face may sway him! 

    Enter once, enter twice... enter as many times as you want. We have two rules: enter and win!

    The contest winner, only from within our prestigious house membership, will be announced and awarded a prize at the embassy warming event on Sunday May 5th. (More information on that will be announced later)
