The House of Orthwood makes its seat at Orthwood Hall.
Best known for Nelnar Orthwood, called the "Champion of Cormyr" for his victories against the Steppes Raiders. He was eventually killed by his son Nars, after Nars was discovered by Nelnar aiding the Steppes Raiders for gold, to pay off a gambling debt. The family was heavily in debt so the Crown seized their holdings in 1227 DR after Nelnar's death to pay their creditors and stripped their noble status, but provided Nelnar's widow and daughters a house of their own on royal estates east of the Starwater and a modest annual amount to live on. Re-ennoblement most likely due to loyalty to Rhigaerd II during the Salember regency.
