The plot of land that now holds StoneClad was awarded to A Captain Foren for his excellent service in the initial Andol Invasion of the mountains of the moon. Unfortunately the Hill was inhabited by first men tribes, Captain Foren took a few of his best men and set out to claim the land and drive away the Barbarians. It was a bloody battle and said to escalate this Captains glory even further. Although the Captain’s last name was Foren at this time, he changed it to reflect his new found Lordship. He formed House Embryn, The sigil of a goat is to reflect the harsh mountainous terrain and endurance of the strong people who live here. Seeing as its in a relatively secluded area, the Words “We don’t need roads” is also a reflection of the people, who climb mountains and pass Bogs to get from one keep to another.
