Meribah Corner took its roots in House Livna’s summer retreat. After the Great Freeze, Lord Markos Livna II gifted the summer retreat to his new son-in-law, Lord Andrei Gershom, a prize-winning knight of the joust. Darkness did not suit the lord of House Gershom, and Sir Andrei stayed away, always at tournament, leaving his wife, Lady Voila, to take charge of the manor without his aid. Over the years, the masters of House Gershom seemed to have inherited their ancestor’s wandering feet as Meribah Corner has almost always been ruled by its Mistresses. The House also has a history of mysterious death, beginning with the murder of Lord Andrei himself, who was said to have been stabbed by a knight he’d humiliated at a tournament in Nesos. Rumor inside House Gershom’s walls tells a different story. It is well-known among the servants of Meribah Corner that Lady Voila murdered her husband after hearing of his exploits with women at court.
The sigil of Meribah Corner is a golden dagger on a two-toned background of blue and green.
