  — Margaster motto[3]

House Margaster (pronounced: /ˈmɑːrgɑːstɛrMAR-gast-er[4]) was a prominent Waterdhavian noble family with ties to Asmodeus[2] in the late 15th century DR.

DescriptionEdit

The family had Illuskan heritage.[3] They had Uthgardt blood in their veins, and physically they looked like the barbarians.[5]

ActivitiesEdit

The Margasters engaged in overland trading of bulk goods, but also quietly practiced wizardry.[3]

HoldingsEdit

Their estate was located in the North Ward of Waterdeep, between Stabbed Sailor Alley and Shattercrock Alley.[3] Thornhold, a fortress located off the southern edge of the Mere of Dead Men, was owned by the warlord Brunyundar Margaster until it was captured and claimed by a paladin as part of the Second Troll War. House Margaster continued to claim a right to Thornhold into the late 15th century DR.[6]

By the time of the War of the Silver Marches, the Margasters owned property in Silverymoon, including a three-story tower and a detached carriage house. Two cambions guarded a stash of magical items in the carriage house, while Xamlyn Margaster resided in the tower.[7]

HistoryEdit

By the time of the War of the Silver Marches of 1485 DR, several members of the Margaster family were secret worshipers of Asmodeus.[2]

In 1488 DR, the Margaster family had allied with the drow of House Hunzrin and together managed a business of demoniac phylacteries.[8]
