The Heraan House is the only house that a player can really join. During the Auroran String, one joins the Heraan House as a warrior, then works one's way up to Thurokiir.

The Heraan House is the most technologically advanced house, as seen in their development of the Argosy and the Thunderforge. Heraan is the sworn enemy of the first house, the Moash, or 'Moashi Dogs,' as the Heraan people generally put it.

Heraan's insignia is the stylized green silhouette of a heron.

The Heraan System Edit

This House is headquartered on the planet Heraan in the system of the same name. Said system also contains a Heraani military station called Resolution, along with a hypergate that leads to the Gateway, Aurora, and Moash Systems.

The planet Heraan has the highest population of any planet in Known Space (over 220 billion). As such, Heraan is extremely polluted, and the major commodities are quite expensive, industrial goods in particular.


If you have any gameplay tips, hints, or background information relevant to this topic, please post them here.

The Heraan house is involved in five storylines, with the exception being the Pirate string.

In the Federation and Vell-os strings, Heraan is bombed to the Stone Age by a joint Federal-Moashi attack, along with the Tekel, Vella, and Dani capitals. This makes it one of four planets in the game that can be dominated and does not have a defense fleet. However if you try to dominate it before it is bombed it will have a defence fleet.

As was stated previously, in the Auroran string, the player becomes a warrior of the Heraan house.

In the Rebellion and Polaris strings, the player works alongside the Heraani on a number of occasions.
