Rigid and militaristic are the two strongest characteristics of the Olstenbridge nobility. The sons are all schooled in the knightly way and many members have won favour through acts of courage or chivalry. However many sons have fallen on the field of battle and Olstenbridge as a house is beginning to wane. Currying favour is not easy for one who expects just reward for just effort and it is now that the family come to the game of politics they have the realisation they are late studies. Duke Olstenbridge of Port Lenongard leads the catch up in the courtly game of wiles.
Trivia: in the novel, “A Tale of Rum Town” the Grissom Delvers completed a mission to recover an Olstenbridge family heirloom before wintering in the city.
