Of course I plan to have a marriage ceremony with Triana Torbrin; she IS the love of my life after all. Oh...but I hope she's not married already...THAT would make a DREADFUL mess of things for me. I hate such unfair fights for a beautiful woman's attention."
At a GlanceTorbrin Estate serves as the home of a wealthy and established noble family. A fact made abundantly clear by the carefully manicured grounds that surround the estate's central mansion. This building of polished stone and stained glass is a testament to the Torbrin Noble Family's shipping acumen, featuring materials acquired from some of the most exotic places in the world. It is known to the wealthy and affluent as the House of Shimmering Glass, thus named for its many stained glass murals and intricate works of painted glass.
Visitors & RoutinesThe Torbrin Estate has many frequent visitors, most noble in blood and bearing. All are either friends of the family or partners in its shipping business. The estate serves as the family's preferred ground for hashing out new deals and securing vital trade networks.
- Elder Torbrin hosts regular drinking parties with his friends, discussing business and politics well into the night.
- Christopher Torbrin is a rambunctious soul who takes daily riding lessons on the grounds. The young boy spends hours in the saddle and hours more climbing the trees on the far edge of the property.
- Triana Torbrin is somewhat of a recluse. She leaves the property sparingly and prefers to spend her free time indoors or in the service of her father's schemes.
Guards & SecurityThe property can host up to seven house guards, including one Captain Garris. Sadly, the usual clockwork of Captain Garris' patrols has been thrown off by the sudden departure of two members of his security team. Right now the security teams are down one man each shift and have been forced to augment their patrols with a few guards dogs kept in a kennel adjacent to the guards' barracks. The guards appear to have some dedication to their job but are far from the best the city can offer and certainly far from the best Torbrin can afford.
Estate GroundsThe Torbrin Estate's grounds are surrounded by a 15-foot tall wall of greenery. Providing security and privacy for those within the property. The main iron gates sit at the end of a short avenue, perfectly suited for the accommodation of carriages and foot traffic to the manor. The road overlooks a small stable that houses the Torbrins' prized riding horses, a collection of storage sheds, and a cluster of guest cottages that sit at the edge of the property. Manicured shrubs and trees dot the land alongside gravel footpaths that snake through the grounds.
The Torbrin Stable is a squat wooden building with a painted shingle roof. It is large enough to house six horses comfortably with a muddy paddock attached to the stable's southern-facing barn door for exercise. Stablehands are common in this area, as they busy themselves with their equestrian charges' care and well-being.
Three guest cottages sit nestled at the edge of the property in a copse of thin grey trees. Each building is identical and designed to give the quaint appearance of an isolated woodland cabin. The lush furniture and beautiful art that decorate these homes show particular care among the Torbrin Noble Family for guest comfort.
