Scion of Kundarak

Scion of Kundarak

Requirement: Member of House Kundarak, Mark of Warding Feat.

   The safest place in Khorvaire is inside a Kundarak vault.  The dwarves of this dragonmarked house pride themselves on their unbreakable warding charms and formidable bastions.  You grew up in such a fortress, surrounded by valuables locked up safe for their owners.

   Being both a dwarf and a member of a Dragonmarked house, family has proved to be a huge part of your life.  You were quizzed growing up on the long branches of the Kundarak family tree and you have seen the consequences when your less reverential relatives neglected their family obligations.  Do you embrace the powerful nature of your family or do you secretly long to make your own way apart from it all.

   As a bearer of the Mark of Warding, you have gained special privileges within House Kundarak.  However, you have found a taste for adventure better than the task of guarding valuables.  What led you down this unorthodox path?  Does your family approve of your mercurial nature or do they pressure you to settle down and use your talents to secure their vaults?  Your path is your own to choose.
