Lady Price was left barren due to their constant use of magic, and the Price legacy was not able to grow. Lord Price, blaming himself for his wifes ailment, took his own life, leaving Lady Price sad and alone. The estate grows neglected and only a few loyal staff remain to care for Lady Price.
Lead by: N/A
Members: Clarice Lastfang
History: House Lastfang was once renowned amongst Mysthaven's nobility as a house of magecraft and sorcery. It is rumoured that the ancestors of the clan mated with dragons, imbuing their bloodline with wonderous powers and an innate gift for magic. Lastfang sorcerors played key roles in the establishment of the Mysthaven wizards' tower and often safeguarded the town in times of crisis. In the present day, however, most Lastfangs are born with little or no magical talent. As a result the family has lost most of its land, titles and assets; most of these have since passed into the hands of other noble houses. The surviving Lastfangs are a disparate group with no established family head, and most have adapted to more mundane positions as farmers, merchants or labourers.
