A Struggle For Power
The majority of cities in Elar are ruled by a wizard house. The wizard houses are divided into three classes: Ruling House, First Tier, Second Tier. Every class of house is represented in each city, in most cases the tiered houses of a city offer their allegiance to the Ruling house of their city. Houses are formed by the children of two wizards. Houses are run by the eldest female, eldest male if there are no females or until there is a female old enough.
Ruling houses are the most powerful of the houses, and are comprised of the most powerful wizards.
First tier houses are comprised of wizards of above average abilities.
