Ravaged by the War of Humanity, the legendary war for dominance fought
between the Elder Gods in the infancy of Creation, the very structure of the
plane of Nishnatoba was forever changed. The intensity of the magics that
wracked it, in the clash of the greatest forces ever amassed together in a
single place, infused the realm with a potent power that has remained mostly
forgotten and untapped for countless millennia.

Until recent times. With the advent of the great Houses in Sapience, the
Gods have seen fit to gift each willing House with a mighty Icon forged
from the magic within Nishnatoba, some newly crafted, some ancient, all
equally powerful. The Icons themselves must remain on the plane from 
which they draw their power, but cast Shadow Icons into Sapience through 
which the true Icons may be accessed and strengthened by each House -- or 
weakened by their enemies. Strengthened, the Icons imbue their respective 
Houses with a choice of potent powers, ranging from increased strength, to 
greater protection, to faster regeneration of willpower, and more.
