For Tec's Tavern of Doom.
Backstory:Tecslicer wrote:He is the head of his house, his parents just died, and he is trying to stableize his house. His younger brother is assisting him in this endeavor, and has met gone to meet a contact that might be able to help. So no tragic dead brother there.
The house is not destitute, it is working well internally, but running into problems of trust as the ministry and the other nobles, don't know where or if you stand.
And he is a seeker misting...
The Drive is tied in to a general belief that the Empire is under-developing its far-flung regions, focusing too much political and economic energy on the Central dominance to the detriment of the rest of the world. The highest ranking nobility see their estates as a means to an end, and funnel the wealth of the outer dominances into the Central dominance for no purpose beyond comparing the size of their... manors.
Lurk rather emphatically proselytizes against this approach.
Long-form backstory: Lurk was finally on to something. He had plans, contacts, the ears of all the right people. Finally he was going to change things in the outer dominances. And then his parents were killed by "bandits" and the duty of his House called him back.
