I'm surprised the Harpells haven't gotten more love. Who wouldn't love a bunch of wizards who come up with weird crossbreeds like a horse/frog?

I like them myself. But my love for the Tanthuls is beyond compare.

They aren't interesting, weird in a way Elminster is weird.

They are as interesting as Elminster.

I have to admit, for me it is the Uskevrens...

Halls of Stormweather was a great introduction and although most novels without Erevis Cale were rather bland, I still like the family as such.

Revisiting my years-old answer...

I recently needed another Waterdhavian noble family, for the background of one of the characters for my now off-again Inn that I am populating. Looking over the nobles, I am now digging the Tesper family, as well.

And the Scatterhawks of Cormyr, just because Scatterhawk is such a cool name, and one I really wish I'd thought of.

I voted for the Obarskyrs, but after reading Evermeet a couple weeks ago, I actually wish I could vote for the Moonflowers as well (not to mention the Battlehammers, the Harpells, the Wyvernspurs...)

On the list? Obarskyr.

But honestly, I like the Wyvernspurs, Uskevrens, and Vyshaans more. :)

Noble family? has to be Family Cormyr for me as they have managed to hang onto the throne for 1400+ years despite all the backstabbing, politics, mad kings, invasion from pirate kings, Arabel rebelling every 20 years or so etc etc etc

Roaringhorns ...... they got that whole partying like there's no tomorrow and living the life of a mercenary..... and they chase unicorns and the next rainbow around the corner.

But more seriously, the Agneh family of Thay has been the most used by me, though the homebrew Tarsorek noble family of Thay has been the more..... guess the best word is fervent.

For me, its the Shoon family. In my realms, there are several surviving Shoons: The Demilich Shoon, Amahl of the Nine Whirlwinds, and a family of their descendents who might one day rise again. :)

I voted Orbaskyr because their family members (as of the 1370s) were quite interesting in the novels. I also agree that the poll is limited though.

I have a dream that one day, all game worlds will exist as one.
