The Hundred Families are the elite of the noble class in Hayll. They are the richest of the rich and the noblest of nobles. They've had a hand in almost every power struggle that has occurred in their Territory and are a mess of tangled family trees and pure bloodlines that can be traced, in some cases, directly to the very first years of Hayll's foundation. Not all of them are possessed of absolute power, but more than a few are fully capable of pulling strings and lining purses to set events into motion that could effect a large majority of the populace. Their power struggles are, unsurprisingly, known even outside their closed, upperclass circles and anyone in Hayll, before Salem Dyre arrived so dramatically anyway, would point to them as the true power behind the Ruling Queen. As is usually the case, there is a reason they are called the Hundred Families. There are only 100 families that have made the cut so this is a place where we can keep track of all of the families, their positions in the hierarchy amongst the Hundred, as well as important information concerning these families. Some of these families are NPC, some are played. All are available to have characters created for them. It is also possible for families to fall out of favor because of something that was done or said. When this happens, it would not be unusual for a family to fall down in the order of things, or even completely off the list altogether to be replaced by a family waiting in the wings. For this to happen though, it needs to be approved.
