Description[edit]

would benefit from vivec's ingame description of the house 24.97.239.147 12:10, 1 August 2008 (EDT)

House Dres represents the past of pre-Tribunal Great House culture, a persistent tradition of Daedra- and ancestor-worshipping civilized Dunmer clans. -Vivec
It might be an idea to add Vivec's dialogue to all articles about a Great House.
What might also be added is the rumor that part of House Dres is led by vampires, as "A Game At Dinner" seems to indicate. Apophis2412 12:21, 1 August 2008 (EDT)

Remodelled Economy[edit]

I'm rewriting this article and I came across a reference issue. Does anyone know the source for the line "House Dres has finally accepted Imperial Rule, and remodelled its economy from an Agricultural one to a Mercantile based one"? I searched CSList-Oblivion INFO records for Dres and only found "They say that slavery has been abolished in Morrowind. House Dres and Hlaalu have renounced the slave trade, and freed the beastfolk from servitude." and "They say that King Helseth has made an alliance with House Dres. Together they pick apart the carcass of ruined Indoril." I also searched on Google, and the only reference to that which I found is a thread on some forum also disputing this information. --Enodoc (talk) 23:40, 4 March 2013 (GMT)

King Helseth and House Hlaalu[edit]

This article seems to suggest that King Hlaalu Helseth is a member of House Hlaalu. Confusing as it may sound, that is not the case. Hlaalu is simply his first name. He has no affiliation with house Hlaalu. As players in Tribunal may experience, house Hlaalu is actually quite upset with him, as he might have poisoned his predecessor, King Athyn Llethan, who actually was of house Hlaalu — Unsigned comment by 78.21.3.240 (talk) at 21:16 on 14 February 2014

He is blood related to Llethan, and members can be ostracized. The sources for the sentence on the page are rumors from Oblivion. They don't explicitly link the two but one details Helseth making an alliance with House Dres and another details that House Dres and Hlaalu renounced slavery. There would be no value in Dres making an alliance with a single person, albeit that that person is the King, so one must conclude that Helseth is leader of Hlaalu, despite any misgivings the other members have or had.
