    Haha, Frank Herbert's Dune is guilty of many of these tropes, yet it's still one of the best sci-fi novels ever written. I guess good writing can rescue even the hackiest world building.

    Love Triangle doesn't translate into Amor Triangulo, not even into Triangulo de Amor. In portuguese and castellan it would be Triangulo Amoroso.

    I kinda feel like alot of this could be related to the first Dune novel. Then again, the Harkonnen cruelty actually did lead to rebellion on Arrakis. In fact, that was the point. Baron Harkonnen encouraged Rabban to be cruel so that the people would rebel, and then he could send Feyd to go and overthrow Rabban and be, comparably, a far more heroic leader. The problem was that not all of the Atreides were dead. Also, the naive policies of the goody-two-shoes Atreides actually did lead to numerous security threats because Duke Leto relied far too much on his personal opinion of each of his advisors and never seemed to do much to find out who was leaking information to the Harkonnens.

    What about House Secretive!
    You know the house no one knows about, but yet they have a strong economy a massive underground army and only show up once House Goodguys is betrayed or the King dies or something. Also for reasons never specified they also serve as a refuge for the protagonist after House Badguys attacks, even when it was clearly stated they have no ties to the other Houses.

    See the funny things about these noble systems is that line of ascension that any lineage can potentially (though its unlikely at most) use.
    A slave might end up being freed, or their children aren't automatically slaves. Those freed peoples can become farmers. A farmer's children can be sent to work for fisher folk, or someone who owns a small business. Those people might come to mary into the families in charge of those businesses or vessels. With a bit of saved up cash they can then get their child an apprenticeship with a respectable blacksmith. That person can then send their children off to mary into equivalent businesses like bakeries and the like. Anyone on that level might make a suitable match for the one of the younger children from a small merchant family. From there those resulting children might mary into the lower end of another merchant family, except a bit bigger this time. A few generations later and this lineage can include the oldest child of wealthy merchants, who can many into the lower end of a weak noble family. After a few generations of that same game as before, this lineage can include the heir to one of the most powerful noble families in the kingdom, and that child could mary onto the throne.
    People want to make nobility and value a virtue that only the chosen can exemplify, but in reality the so many greats grand father of the king could have been a slave.
    This aspect of the court and society as a whole is something I've only really seen in the Song of Ice and Fire.

    Season 6 of Game Of Thrones is this video’s climax. Seriously? Why do the noble houses, whom all look down on bastards, suddenly pass up Sansa, Eddard’s truenorn daughter, while letting Jon, a bastard and technically a deserter of the Nights Watch, sit the throne? And there wasn’t any other house to make a bid for King in the North by ancient marriages?

    Nice! I know this is more comedy, but I am myself writing a book and creating a world, very inspired by medieval times. And yes I have started working on some noble houses and indeed there are the honourble house and the
    more dishonourble and almost evil you can say, but then there you can have really different opinions but in my book there is a more dishonourble house, though in the
    more honourble house, there may be one that has grown up to be not so honourble. But anyway I won't say r promise anything cause the book is far from finished, but even if this was comedy you can kind of say there is the evil and the good house(does of course not necessarily have to go so far as being evil though :)

    Noble houses; made to secure my lineage in history, for the future, at the expense of my genetic inferiors. The manifestation of nobility is to use one's capacity to seize the day. And to succeed IS noble. For only the nobles can achieve this victory. Their might is evidence, and until another's nobility takes their throne from them, it is only right. As there is no other alternative to disprove me.
    To be noble is to spill others blood and make peasants drunkenly dance to the tune of your litanies of evil. They celebrate for centuries in lyrics like "we love it, when the devil has us dancing, in his grip". That is the evil spectre of nobility rearing its decapitated head. For the slaves knew better how to rule their lives.

    I mean SOME were good actual advice to a degree. I mean how do you even include history, trade, logistics, etc etc into a story? If it can be alluded to in the story then yeah it’s important but if it has nothing to do with the story itself then it’s not important. Better to keep t simple if the characters can still be complex
