Household Legend

The Reign of Sir Pebwyn

Upon the death of his brother, Sir Jaernen, Pebwyn, squire to the Earl, was knighted Sir Pebwyn in the moments following the night attack on the camp of King Arthur. Since that night, he has ridden into battle many times to fight for the king and earl.

Plagued by a history of dishonesty, Sir Pebwyn is known as a deceitful man, but in the Forest Sauvage, he has had a rebirth. Swearing to uphold Arthur’s ideals as a trustworthy knight, he has made an oath to reforge himself anew so that no man may doubt his word.

Seeking to be worthy of his father and brother, Pebwyn has gained the permission of the earl to construct a river castle at Newton. In the first year since, the trenches were dug and the foundation laid. In the coming years, Pebwyn hopes to make it a truly magnificent structure worthy of his benefactors.

The same year as the castle began construction, Pebwyn married the young, beautiful Lady Glesig, heiress to the lands of Horton, to the north, wealthy silver mines coveted by their neighbors. The earl believed that Pebwyn could help bring strength and protection to her lands and ward off the jealousy of those around. Likely, some are angered at this joining of houses.

To commemorate the joining of the houses of Newton and Horton and Pebwyn’s conversion to the Roman faith, a new, grand Roman church is planned to be built within the village.
