8.2.4 The Esoteric Consortium
The end of the war for the Infernal Throne found Ashtan lying in ruins from the long siege of Golgotha that pitted the city against endless hordes of entities and the Spawn of the Unnamable Horror itself. With the alliance to Imperator Glaaki and his Court officially declared in the Ruinous Accords, the citizens finally banded together under a common banner of Chaos. That is when the Esoteric Consortium was born. Understanding that dominance is not solely won at the edge of a blade, and leaving that in the hands of the Nemesian Vanguard, members of the Consortium lay the strong foundations to ultimate power. They constantly plan and prepare with a cold-eyed practicality, ready to respond to any contingency. To the Esoteric Consortium, everything and everyone has a price, and anything not currently held by the Seat of Chaos is open to negotiation. The Esoteric Consortium represents a tightly-knit syndicate dedicated to increasing the influence of Ashtan via the acquisition of anything deemed necessary for its Ascension. Be it through the merchant aggressively marketing abroad, the artisan supplying the Ashtani war machine, or the politician enacting a beneficial trade deal, members of the Consortium represent an elaborate network of analysis, planning, and knowledge dedicated to furthering the designs of the Chaos Court. But understand that the House is not concerned with acquisition for acquisition's sake - it is merely another path on the road to dominance for Ashtan, Seat of Chaos.
