So, I'm having one major problem right now. Every single character application (except two) currently is the direct child of a noble family. Of the two that are not, one is tangentially and specifically tied to a house (and I'm fine with that.)
But... isn't too much, too much? I'm really uneasy with having characters who can claim direct kinship (or in fact are the child of) an important noble. (Important being defined as anyone who's landed, frankly.) Am I being too trepidatious here? I'm not trying to stifle creativity here, but it's becoming more and more like noble families are having litters of kids and kicking them off and out into the wilds.
