House Nurgal is known for its work with magic, particular in the form of runes. It is allied to Hendrake, the royal house. Davros the Chaos Stylite hailed from here, before becoming a monk.
Nurgalways is noted for its large stock of a very strong and versatile type of glass; many structures are built out of it there. The Ways are also full of many fields for crops and ornamental plants.
Lord Nurgal's humanoid form appears to be that of a troll, and this is true of his wife and children as well. Moriya recently returned the Logrusfoil that originally belonged to House Nurgal, Thought. This, it would appear, has rather improved relations between Amber and Nurgals, at the very least.
