Players may join existing organizations which provide roleplaying opportunities and mechanical benefits. Great houses have additional responsibilities, while smaller organizations allow more freedom.
The world of Avendar is home to several great and ancient houses. Representing the important political, economic, and moral forces that shape the world of Avendar, each has come to fill its own niche in Avendarian society.
Characters may petition to join houses, offering their services to factions whose interests and beliefs match their own.
Houses each have a center of power located somewhere in Avendar. In each of these locations a mystical vault has been erected, where the houses store their treasures, and focus the energy of the mystical stones of power.
