Hi Scott, just a quick question (not), during TDTCB there are multiple references to various noble houses such as house Ikurei and Biaxi, but how many houses are there? Are all caste nobles members of the houses? How many caste nobles are there? On another tangent, how many castes are there and what are their names and roles? Sorry to take time away from your writing, great series by the way. view post

No problem, Dark Wraith! As far as noble houses go, I haven't set any numbers, but there must be at least several thousand of them across the Three Seas. All told, the caste nobility would likely run into the hundreds of thousands. But these are just guesses based on the roughly Hellenistic model I'm using for the Three Seas. There are five main castes: the nahat or hereditary priests, the momurai or merchants, the suthenti or caste menials, the kjineta or caste nobles/warriors, and lastly, slaves. view post
