Centuries ago, the Elothean Houses of the Marching Lotus and the Black Fang were wiped out in the Elven-Human War. While the scant Marching Lotus survivors were subsequently assimilated into other Houses, Black Fang was written off as obliterated. Contrary to the published history, a handful of remaining Black Fang warriors were surreptitiously ‘recruited’ into the ranks of the Melyo Rensh’a, leader of the fabled House of the All-Seeing Eye and clandestine fourth counselor to the Ferdahl.
Unfortunately, this integration soured over time, and political tensions within the ranks of the Melyo Rensh’a hit a divisive tipping point when a steadfast adherence to secrecy contributed to the murder of Ferdahl Kukalakai and the occupation of Shard by the Outcast army. An embittered traitor finally emerged, and the Melyo Rensh’a was assassinated by one of his own five generals, Ilva the Shrike of Dergati, who then launched a coup to revive the vengeful and warmongering House of the Black Fang from which she descended.
Supplementing her numbers with vicious lowlifes culled from Undershard, Iilva has established a growing encampment east of Shard in Boleausun Bayou, while the outnumbered Melyo Rensh’a loyalists have fallen back to their last defensible point, a hidden flying garden known as Ashala’taman, and begun earnestly recruiting the help of brave adventurers.
Will the Melyo Rensh'a loyalists triumph?
If so, who will rise to become the new Melyo Rensh'a, and how will the publicity of these events affect the formerly clandestine nature of the office?
Will the murderess Ilva be brought to justice?
Or will the Black Fang defectors prevail, re-adding their fallen House to Ilithi and its political landscape?

Q: What is the House of the Revenant Fang?
It’s a SimuCoin event which takes place in Shard.
Q: Is the quest empath-friendly?
Yep! Participating in combat is not required to complete the quest or earn incidental loot.
Q: Is there a minimal skill/level requirement?
A: No, most enemies flex, but it's still recommended that you have at at least around 100 ranks in the relevant skills to participate in combat. You may also find that scholarship, outdoorsmanship, athletics, perception, and stealth skills can help you complete your tasks more quickly.
Q: How do I get incidental loot?
A: Incidental loot is available in the second quest area, Boleausun Bayou. There, any action that counts as progress towards your assigned task has a chance to spawn incidental loot.
Q: Can I leave the quest area (for banking, healing, or whatnot) and then come back?
A: No, you can abandon a quest run by asking a taskmaster NPC about quitting, but you forfeit any unearned prize credits for that run.
Q: What happens if I die while running the quest?
A: When you depart, you’ll be returned to the starting point for the quest task you were working on.
Q: What is the morgawr?
A: The morgawr is an enormous blind monster that swims around the eastern section of the bayou searching for prey. If encountered, it’s best to HIDE until it passes or flee towards land. If you stay out in the open too long or try to swim away into adjacent waters, you may just become morgawr food!
