History

Description

Principles

The principles of the Recollection are littered with nuances and specifics, but it's aspects and domains summarize the fundamentals quite well.


First and most simple is the perpetual stubbornness of life, otherwise known as Heart. The demand for the persistence of all that is, be it old or new. The Recollection holds firm the belief that while all things must end, the permanence of endings is optional. The idea that so long as there is life, what has come before will be be recreated and renewed by the decedents of those who spawned it.

For individuals this generally translates to prevention of death; including things from simple medicine and antibiotics, to resuscitation and immortality. However, most fail to realize this also translates to ones legacy; the image that inspires imitators or successors, be they decedents or simply random inspired souls.

Similarly, this also applies to empires. Subverted royal families; overthrown crowns; heirs with nothing to turn to; benevolent and tyrannical rulers alike call upon the Recollection to see their reigns restored. Those facing the threat of fall also call upon the Recollection to mend the weakness within, for better or for worse. Controversially, a few believe that some notable revolutionaries were given the Once-More's blessing in times of desperation, although this remains unconfirmed.

It also goes without saying that restorers and archaeologists will often call on the Recollection for aid in their particular fields.


Second is the cost of survival, or the changes that come with defying and unmaking death. The principles of the Millions-Upon-Millions is perhaps the foremost obstacle a moral faces when seeking to deny the inevitable, as it's by its decree that the old must give way to the new. The birth of the Recollection, however, identified a loophole in this principle; what qualifies as 'New' was never specified. If the old alters itself to a certain point, the Law will considers it a new entity, sparing it from both the inevitable end and the Omnipede's judgment. This lost aspect of the old form can then, with extensive effort, be restored with little consequence. Naturally, this is much easier to do with empires and objects than it is people.


The third and final regards the essential framework that memories provide. (WIP)

Appearance

In its full glory, the Recollection appears as a mountainous amalgamation of materials. It's composition includes everything from stone, to wood, to glass, to flesh. All of its body, regardless of material, appears to flow with a gel like consistency. Few can claim to have witnessed this sight.

For the appearance of the Recollections interior, see the FNORD.

Locations

The Fansus

  • The Apothecarium: The hospital fortress by which one enters the Recollection. (WIP)


  • The Neoplasm: Surrounding the Apothecarium is the vast organic landscape called the Neoplasm. (WIP)


  • The Wall of Ages: The outermost layer of the Recollections domain is perhaps the most organically inorganic constructs in the House; a membrane like barrier formed from countless stacked structures and formations both natural and unnatural, known as the Wall of Ages.

Believed to have been created by the Once-More as a peremptory measure against it's many potential threats, The Wall of Ages, as the name implies- appears as a massive makeshift wall constructed from a pile of countless recreated structures and formations throughout the histories. Both natural (ex. mountains, forests, cave systems) and unnatural structures (ex. buildings, monuments, sculptures) appear embedded the wall, with formations growing older the further up one travels. The layout and composition of the integrated structures all appear to randomly shift in culture and/or region at varying intervals-possibly at will. The external and internal dimensions are also wildly inconsistent, with attempts at direct passage through the wall being either immensely shorter or infinitely longer on a case to case basis. It's been noted that followers and long of certain Hours tend to be denied with grater or absolute frequency, with some consistently failing to return after entering. The few that return injured claim that, in addition to Scavenger and Sentinel swarms; the Wall itself attacked them. The validity of these claims remains unconfirmed.

All structures found seem angled to fit almost seamlessly into one another, bending space to appear level and well fit while retaining the dimensions of the originals. Rooms only seem to manifest within the building the room originated from, however this remains somewhat unconfirmed. Walls hammered down occasionally contain All rooms are furnished to resemble what their composition would have looked like at some random point in its existence. All windows found within that would not lead to the outside of the wall, when closed, have a secondary view that is believed to display a random scene the window in question would have originally looked over. This secondary view overlays the first, and while allegedly difficult and disorienting, does not prevent one from viewing the adjacent room or ones reflection. Additionally, several almost identical copies of some structures and buildings have been found; more than could have resulted from the main fractures of history. This has lead occult scholars to believe that the wall is also compiling demi-real branches into its formation, though this remains unconfirmed among scholars.

Walls that are broken have occasionally been said to reveal non-building structures like statues, graves and monuments. it is possible to hammer or mine down walls and achieve similar results, though this takes a great deal of difficulty.

Like the Neoplasm, the Wall has been confirmed as a living organism capable of regeneration and growth, with new formations often seen reportedly rising from the bottom. Once generated, the structures seems remains at the base of the Wall until its existing counterpart is demolished, where upon it begins rising upwards. If only a portion of the existing building is demolished, that relevant portion on the Wall will sink upwards while the remainder remained unchanged. If part of the existing building is remolded, the structure on the Wall will reportedly undergo a sort of mitosis. Once finished, one of the two will alter itself to fit the renovations while the latter sinks up the wall.
