Ironclaw - Houses of Calabria

Houses of Calabria

On the island of Calabria, many noble houses, minor and major, have come and gone. The following is an attempt to catalog those that have been mentioned by name so far in the Ironclaw rulebook and the various sourcebooks. The "Book" column indicates in which supplement the house is first mentioned (and in some cases, on what page or pages). For the major houses, I've opted to just list the books devoted to them, rather than cataloging the mentions.
