The House of Unmaking unleashes raw Strife into the world
Wild, erratic, mad and deadly, Mages of the House of Unmaking concern themselves with unravelling, dissonance, discord, and folly. The Mage of Unmaking knows just where to yank on that loose bit of yarn, to bring all your plans, all your creations, and the fabric of the Universe itself crashing down in whirling confusion. Mages of Unmaking leave a twisting path of destruction and strange new forms behind them: most self-destruct quickly, but they are not soon forgotten. The Misfits, strange creatures cobbled together from disparate pieces, spring up in the Mage's wake. Some Misfits were once members of other nations, before being overtaken by the strange rebellious instability of chaos.
"Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world. Things fall apart, the center cannot hold..."
- W. B. Yeats

Symbols: Every misfit's symbol is unique: one hand rampant, the bloody icicle, the ten red eyes, etc.
Culture: Misfits form the Fellowship of the Outcast and Unwanted. This fotoau follows the hobo's code. They are always be kind to one another, but look to the rest of the sad world with a sense of superiority gained from hard experience. None but misfits can truly understand the world and all its problems. They believe that only the weird will survive. One of us! One of us! Gabba gabba hey!
