Bredgooden is a village to the south east of Lucerne. Despite its extremely small size, Bredgooden has been the site and birth of a number of important moments and people within the Kingdom of Lucerne. Bredgooden is in the province of central Lucerne and for this reason it is the overlording land of House Lovie.
Most known for being the center of House Jackson , and in some ways their own personal village for a time, the village's role changed dramatically when House Jackson was nearly wiped out during the Plague. Following the Plague the village was deprived of its most important members and this led the village into a steep decline which has only reveresed with the return of Joshua Jackson, and his House's wealth returning. With the return and rise of House Jackson once again they constructed a small keep at the eastern side of Bredgooden of which was manned by some twelve men and became the center of the defence of the small region north of Lole. Bredgooden would become the home of Walter Jackson following the Invasion of Westbridge as he begin to decline in health and was less and less able to travel he removed himself to Bredgooden.

House Jackson was painted very early on as the ringleader of the rebellion and for this reason their destruction was made to be paramount but also Bill wanted to know the true extent of the movement and for this reason the operation had to make sure that they captured Walter Jackson alive so that he could be tortured for information.
Joshua Jackson was being put to bed by his mother when he saw a man come into the room behind her. He pointed at the man in warning to his mother, and when she turned around the man killed her. She fell onto the basinet and shielded Josh from view. Not knowing the child was in the room, the assasin left and went throughout the House killing various other targets. When they captured Walter, one of the assasins went back into the house in the pretents of making sure everyone was dead. When the assasin Brandon Von Gruger entered the room where Josh's mother had been killed he found Joshua rubbing his mother's back trying to get her to wake up. The assasin in this moment moved to the child, and whispered for him to be very quiet if he wanted to live. The assasin then proceeded to put the child behind him attatched to a rope, and hidden behind his cloak. This was how Joshua travelled to Lucerne, and when they arrived the assasin brought him to the steps of the Lucerne orphanage and left him there.

If House Jackson was the centerpoint of the rebellion then their vassal house in House Nune had been the communicator of the rebellion. House Nune was entirely inside Bredgooden when the attack against House Jackson were launched, and like much of the town they didn't notice as the killings went on, but when the assassins entered their home the members of House Nune awoke to the sounds of screaming as the entire House Nune was put to the torch. Unlike House Jackson who they required Walter Jackson alive they did not need anyone from House Nune alive so the assassins simply barred the doors and then proceeded to burn the house down with the entire house inside.
Loss of House Jackson
