parent_page_factionroleplaying A human colony world on the outer fringes of the galaxy. Interested in media and entertainment above all else they cut themselves off from the rest of the human empire. Faction Paradox infiltrated the society through their media, eventually creating the Remote. The House Military's violent Second Wave wiped Ordifica out of existence so completely that it left a hole in history, and in order to prevent the Yssgaroth from getting through the hole and back into the Spiral Politic, it was covered in a shell of Highest Entropy Matter (also known as Cold or validium), matter that requires vast amounts of energy input just for basic particle interaction to begin. HEM is harvested from the end of the Universe by nechronomancers, who are regarded as pariahs within House society for their belief that past and future do not exist in any significant sense.
