House Meles Guide in Game of Tomes | World Anvil

House Meles Guide

Sponsored by the Meles Board of Tourism


Welcome! Are you new to House Meles or touring our beautiful protectorate?   Let us show you around so you can learn about the chill Melesian badger and badger kith culture and catch up on our lore.



by SRF + MJ

Glad to have you here! I'm one of the Meles Librarians.   Meles is currently a Minor House, which means our house supports a major house (and we add to their word count) during Game of Tomes events. These events include Tourney of Tales in April and July, and the Word Wars (aka Game of Tomes) in November.   (Full event rules are at the Game of Tomes homepage.)   Below is a quick rundown of our Protectorate and some of Melesians you may see around our capital. There are links for continued reading, should you wish to dive deeper.   Be sure to snag one of the goodies at the front desk.
House Meles Quick Facts
The Kingdom

Our House

House Meles, is a constitutional monarchy ruled by the Meles Trifecta. Our king or queen is called The Great Badger.   Melesians welcome beings of all species as citizens and we tend to be a mellow lot. We value hard work and everyone having a voice, via the Allthing Protectorate-wide meetings. When you join, creature companions—much like a pet—may seek you out and ask you to care for them.  

Meles Minor House Crest by Shyredfox

Our crest colors show off our forest origins. We aren't afraid to dig in and "badger through" our writing goals.  

The Region

The territory of the Meles Protectorate includes the pre Word War US states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the up of Michigan.   In March 2024 we moved from being a major house to a minor one. There were big changes to our borders with the Meles Ailurus Treaty of 2024.  

The Capitol

Windy Willows "The Den" is the seat of government. It's located in an underground city set by a stunning mountain lake.
