The Gost Citadel

The extended properties, holdings, and estates of Lord Galvan Gost from Nevara.

Mission Statement: “Position our prestigious house as an independent neutral entity and build embassies in each of Lorica's major territories; so as to sell services establishing communication/treaties/insurance/trade-arrangements between foreign countries with an end goal of bringing peoples together before Ancient Cathorn's prophesized cataclysm destroys the entire continent.”

Gost Citadel prides itself on its expansive and influential network of connections.
They own regal estates, lounges, guild halls, fortresses, and trading posts throughout the realms of Lorica. An elite battalion known as the Knights of the Black Veil are trained to serve and protect the citadel and its lords.

The Gost Citadel's oldest building is located in the heart and center of Brightshore's tower district. The 1-acre lot of property was awarded to Lord Galvan Gost in Year 23 by the first council for his contributions to the economy and charitable efforts toward the city. The land now boasts a four-story noble estate with a foyer lounge, a stable, servant's house, garden, and topiary. It is home now to not just the Gosts, but an entire court of esteemed peers, courtiers, staff and associates. In Year 23, it was the largest employer of displaced River District workers after the Giant Construct attack.

You'll find members of the citadel seek the most dangerous and lucrative work, and donations from the estate are distributed widely. They have invested in shelters for the destitute, the temples of the four, and in a school called the Gost Academy at the Cleo Catra House. Individual families have also been selected for aid during Galvan's time volunteering as a manual laborer in the River District.
