This house is ruled by halflings with the Mark of Hospitality, who take a broad view of the mandate that comes with the mark. The house maintains and licenses inns, restaurants, and similar establishments throughout the continent, running both roadside inns on the frontier and self-sufficient enclaves in major cities. With secret agents, deserters, fugitives, renegades, war criminals, and mysterious strangers of all sorts crowding the streets, House Ghallanda provides a safe haven for clandestine meetings and a jumping-off point for thrilling escapes from the pursuers waiting just outside a Ghallanda enclave’s walls.
If the way to a person’s heart is indeed through his stomach, then House Ghallanda holds the hearts of all in Khorvaire. lt’s largest base of operations is the City of Gatherhold, the only permanent settlement amid the nomadic halflings of the Talenta Plains.
