House Dent of Blade’s Edge
Liege Lord: The Starks of Winterfell

ca. -4500 AL (Villain) – House Dent is founded in the mountains of Blades Edge, during the era of the
Andal Invasion, along the origins of the Last River. Three brothers emerge from the Frost Fangs in
the north to settle the Dent’s Pass.
ca. -3000 AL (Treachery) – Lord Heinrich Dent is beheaded by the Stark King for his role in aiding
the Wilding Invasion.
ca. -700 AL (Glory) – House Dent plays a pivotal role in the Starks finally subduing the Boltons to
establish control over the North. Mountain’s Thunder is named by Stark’s forces and the name
remains to this day. A statue of the hero of the battle, Lord Gunther Dent, is the focal point of the
hamlet of Crossguard.
195-196 AL (Treachery) – Lord Frederick Dent sides with the Blackfyre Rebellion, and loses lands to the south of their current holdings as recompense.
206-242 AL (Infrastructure) – The Reign of Lord Gustav Dent: Gustav establishes the doctrine of ‘Bread & Copper’. Helped the lands survive a harsh winter, and endear the smallfolk to their lord. Black Timber clan uprising in 220 was put down, largely as a result of the smallfolks loyalty from this doctrine.
258 AL (Catastrophe)- An avalanche devastates the communities of the Blade Mountains. Young Michael Dent (8 years of age) becomes the new lord of Blade’s Edge. The ‘Bread & Copper’ doctrine assures a peaceful and surprisingly smooth transition.
