It is five hundred and sixty five years since the last of the First Fallen was slain, and Hell is in turmoil once again. The Tenth House, House Lictat, has arisen after three hundred and sixty seven years to claim the position held by the destroyed Ninth House, House Jelac. The Free Cities Heresy, a rebellion against the very laws of the Infernum, has arisen and claimed multiple cities across Hell, forcing the other eight Houses to accept House Lictat in order to focus their attention on this new threat. The Hellgouts are swallowing larger and larger groups of mortals. Fallen angels are plummetting into the Pit more frequently then ever before. This year marks ninety eight years since the Knights of the Harrowing plunged their mountain-fortress of Outremer into Hell to lead a crusade against demonkind. The possibilities for the brave, the cunning, and the lucky, are infinite.

In addition to demons, players can also play humans and Fallen Angels, younger, less potent versions of the First Fallen.

** TheKnightsTemplar: The Knights of the Harrowing. Invaded Hell ''on purpose'' with the intention of killing all demons.

* SevenDeadlySins: most of the Houses embody at least one of these, and sometimes more. Zethu and Astyanath are Pride, Riethii is blatantly Lust, Sturrach obviously has strong ties to Wrath, Lictat is implied to be Envy, Carthenay is Avarice, Haimon is Sloth, and Oblurott is predominantly Gluttony. (Glabretch is the odd one out, but then that happens a lot with them.)

Added DiffLines:

* WrittenByTheWinners: According to the official history, demons came into being when the First Fallen were corrupted. They absolutely were not the result of bestiality by the First Fallen, Lucifer never existed, and more importantly, demons certainly did ''not'' [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters rebel against the Fallen]] - such rumors are heresy. Note that every demon knows the Luciferine Heresy and nearly all believe it - but admitting that would undermine the Law of the Covenant and put Infernal society (and the positions of the nobility) in peril.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadlyDecadentCourt: The lower Circles of Hell are pleasurable to the point of sybaritic, but it's still Hell. Instead of the constant open warfare practiced in Upper Hell, you get backstabbing, seduction, possession and [[IGaveMyWord Covenant]] manipulation. It should be noted that these circles are the ''most'' dangerous part of Hell, not the least.

Added DiffLines:

* MassiveRaceSelection: Nine breeds of demons, plus humans, half-demons, [[FallenAngel Fallen Angels]], the damned, and possibly oddballs like the Abhorei.
