Banner of House Crassus

House Crassus is a one of the greater Noble Houses that survived the Great War.

Before the Great War, House Crassus was dedicated to natural sciences and arcane research, these two disciplines intersecting in an investigation into the planes of existence. Consequently, they were instrumental in both conducting the Great Ritual and assembling the wondrous machines that made it possible. Most of the Magi perished in the last days of the conflict, depriving House Crassus not only of generations of wisdom and research, but of their very purpose. Today House Crassus has fallen back on religion, calling for proper worship and the restoration of the gods as the natural rulers of men.

Background[ | ]

Withdrawing from war and politics, House Crassus dedicated itself to the sciences and arcane research, particularly in planes of existence. Consequently, they were instrumental in the Summoning, having constructed the portal and the many machines that powered it.


"Way back when House Crassus and the Magi were pretty much the same thing," says the man, pleased that he knows something you don't.

"They say that House Crassus was founded by Gaius Valerius Crassus – a military tribune with consular powers and unparalleled vision. It was him who turned the Magi into a powerful Order and it was that Order that turned an upstart kingdom into a mighty empire."

"It is said that their House played a key role in the Summoning that brought the High Lords to our aid. They built temples for these Lords and spent day and night there, learning from them."
