    There are a few patrician families with significant numbers of Dragon-Blooded members, the result of centuries of carefully husbanding their fostered Dragon-Blooded scions rather than having those scions adopted by the Great Houses. Most patrician families are mostly mortal, though few of those families have any connection to the old Shogunate gentes.
    What makes these Patrician families with significant numbers of Dragon Blooded different from the lesser Houses? Or does the idea of Lesser Houses no longer really exist?

      "Lesser Houses" is not a setting term in 3e.

        Ahh, okay then. So families that might have been considered Lesser Houses in earlier editions (like House Ferem) now just fall under Patrician families?

          Minor Dragon-Blooded families on the Blessed Isle, such as the Bal family (re: Bal Keraz, the head of the Imperial Treasury) are simply one flavor of patrician family. Ruling Dragon-Blooded families in the Threshold who've married into the Dynasty as called "cadet houses"; they don't live on the Blessed Isle and have nothing to do with the patriciate.

            I did always wonder what was up with Bal Keraz. That makes sense.

            How many Cadet Houses are mentioned in either Dragonblood or the Realm? Do many of them have full descriptions?
            I always did like House Ferem.
