Home & Wealth
Current Location: The manor is in Fellise but like many nobles, the Zerrungs also own a small town house in the Silver Quarter area of Luthadel for family to stay over or when they need to stay for business. Wilor often stays there, liking the city better than Fellise.
Ancestral Home: Tremredare, Western Dominance
Financial Avenue: House Zerrung originally tried to invest in many different financial options but that was not successful, only a few actually succeeded. A century ago, Larius' grandfather cut down the investments to the three most successful, specialized weapons, metal/stone mining, and architecture. As House Zerrung, was never a major house, it hardly got major contracts and as it is one of the most spread out houses, it doesn't procure much business, but is one of the most successful minor houses.

It's main focus and source of income is mining. Stone was begun mining in 875 near Fadrex City. Granite, marble, and cobblestone are mined there. Metals are mined near Tremredare. Specifically, it is Allomantic metals, steel, iron, copper, tin, and pewter are provided by House Zerrung. It is around a five day shipping time from Fadrex and around eight days from Tremredare to Luthadel. In about the year 875, Larius' father decided to make this mainly a raw materials house, now also including the timber business, cutting trees making timber and selling it to construction houses.

Architecture is the lesser income source of the three. Zerrung only gets a few architectural contracts and is mostly a contractor for larger houses. The specialized weapons are sold to Hazekillers and guards.

Previous to Philip Zerrung, the house was almost run into the ground by his grandfather. His father began to fix their situation but Philip is the one who raised the house to major status by eliminating unprofitable businesses.
