House of Dust and Ash
The House of Dust and Ash is the primary structure on the Burning Isle. It is a series of domed structures which dominate the volcanic peak of the Burning Isle some 3 kilometres across. The largest central dome is bracketed by three immensely tall obelisks, which channel the smoking volcanic fumes high into the sky above. All of the structures are covered in thick grey-white layers of soot.
The House of Dust and Ash is a huge funeral and crematoria complex whose origins are somewhat vague. It has existed for millenia and pre-dates the mass polution of the planet. It exists and runs largely autonomously by rights granted to it under Solomon’s ancient laws. It is considered to be a mark of renown and privilege to be interred there, and there are thousands of vaults and tombs in the complex.
The House is also traditionally considered to be “neutral ground” by many factions on Solomon, often hosting private meetings, negotiations, and auctions over the years. The island facility has up to now been run and maintained by a religious order known as the Sorrowful Guild. There was also a small Administratum and Chancellery presence maintained there as well, which had been forced upon the Sorrowful Guild who ran the place.
Recently the auction took place, which resulted in the destruction of the Sorrowful Guild, as well as the unleashing of the Children of the Kingdom and a summoning of daemonic forces.
