Ever since the outbreak, the world - South Zagoria, specifically speaking - has been host to a wildfire of hostilities. It has seen the rise and fall of militias, factions, and governments. Whenever the current king of the hill inevitably succumbs to the wildfire, another one takes its place. 

A few rough men, mostly indifferent to the topic of morality, have noticed this trend of perpetual chaos. These men come from all walks of lowlife - mercenaries, smugglers, arms dealers - you name it, they’ve either sold it or shot at it; and for the right price, and the right connections, you can become their client. 

But this story isn’t about just simple profit. These men, while despicable, aren’t stupid. They know that in a world like this, the real profit is control. Imagine selling the weapons used in the endless war that infests South Zagoria, or selling the drugs that pump through the veins of the soldiers, or perhaps selling the soldiers themselves. The men who control the war economy control the war, and the men who control the war control the outcome. 

This is the ultimate goal of those who meet at The House - and the only two things you can expect a House member to be loyal to are the goal, and each other.

The House was born not out of some religious fascination or built on the basis of national identity, or any other myriad of reasons why a group of people who might otherwise despise each other come together to get something done. The House was born on one motive and one motive only; necessity.

Harrison Foulke was a man of necessity. It was almost a requirement in the line of work he was in.  Only carry what you need. Only call who's part of the job. Only make friends with those who wouldn't end up dead.

Harry was a career criminal, apathetic about most everything besides getting what he figured he was owed. He's been in the business since he was nineteen - specifically the business of carjacking, and illegalls shipping those jacked cars across the pond to places that couldn't easily get their hands on them. Harry lived near the coast, at a harbor town named Norfolk, in Virgina; readily available to ensure the safe and timely delivery of shipments to Eastern Europe. Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, Chernarus - he had quite an affinity for Chernarus, actually. It was his favorite port to frequent - he enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of South Zagoria, the serene beaches near "Berezino" or whatever the locals called it. Luckily for Harry, it'd become his new home when the infection broke out.

After years of living by his old rules, travelling alone, he stumbled across a man named David Mack. David quickly picked up on Harrison's ability to adapt, and he soon brought him into the fold of the newly formed "Abyss Corporation". The Abyss Corporation represented Harry's motives almost entirely - truly business oriented. That soon began to change, with many of Abyss' members beginning to find other motives. Abyss soon turned its attention to creating a town, and soon after that the corp splintered. Harry saw this coming early, and he had other ideas himself - continue Abyss' legacy while hopefully sticking to what brought them together in the first place - profit. With these goals in mind, Harry found himself meeting with a few other trusted members of the old corp at a schoolhouse up north. They met there frequently to discuss strategies and share intelligence on the goings-on in South Zagoria. Over time, their member count grew, and Harry realized that it was time to make it official. Out of that schoolhouse, the House was born.

The House is less a group and more a collective of individuals, each with their own specialties. Each member of the House has some level of autonomy in how the goals of the House are completed. Furthermore, the House uses more of an "ad-hoc" structure to chain-of-command. Some people, including himself at times, doesn't recognize Harry as a "leader", and more as an organizer - the guy who brought them all together. With this structure and their goals in mind, the House set out to sell weapons and armed services to the people of South Zagoria.

Despite this, hey soon fell into an impasse - a group of Chernarussian nationalists that wished for nothing more than foreigners like Harrison and the majority of his associates to leave the country - either on foot or via body bag. Harrison, who disliked both choices, quickly called a meeting with other groups of men that included foreigners - namely, a militia of men going under the moniker "New Moon", and a group of men, mostly American, that called themselves "The Saviors". This meeting wasn't particularly productive, due to the fact that, unbeknownst to Harrison, some members of the House did not have great relations with the Saviors, namely a man named John Moody, their leader. Even with this issue, the meeting went on mostly without a hitch, and the three groups signed a 48 hour non-aggression pact.

However, due to many House members being preoccupied with standing contracts in other parts of South Zagoria, matched with some very unfortunate timing, these nationalists, calling themselves the "Kamenici", ambushed the Saviors and New Moon without the help of the House. It was a very bloody engagement. Harrison would be taken to task for this in a major way, when New Moon and the Saviors initiated a surprise attack on Harrison and some of the members of the House, which quickly put the House in a tight spot, with enemies on all sides. After a few days, the New Moon and Saviors even allied with the nationalists, for reasons still not entirely clear to Harrison, even today. Harrison tried to meet multiple times with both organizations, but were met with either nonresponse or a firefight.

The House, however, had a plan. After a few tense firefights, the House bolstered their numbers significantly in order to take on all three groups at once. They were able to hold their own, stringing together a few victories against the Nationalist/New Moon/Savior threat. This went on for a while, until Izzak Sirko of the New Moon cobbled together a neutral settlement dubbed "New Grishino". Harrison thought this would be a good way to attempt one more peace talk with Izzak and his men. The Kamenici, not eager to see their new ally provide room and board to the enemy, threatened to withdraw their support for the town unless the House were kicked out of the town. So, they were.

Harrison noticed something a little.. off. Almost as if Izzak's hand was being forced. So, he called for a private meeting between the two organizations to figure out what exactly was the issue. Izzak agreed that Kamenici forced the New Moon's hand, and his strategy was to wait until they screwed themselves over. And, to his credit, they did - only hours after their meeting, the Kamenici, for whatever reason, decided to ally with a new nationalist organization and fight against the New Moon and their town of New Grishino. This only brought the House, New Moon, and, regrettably to some, the Saviors, back onto the side of the House, clearly drawing the lines in the sand.

Fighting continued for a while with no notable events, until the House found a Kamenici informant taking refuge in New Grishino. The House apprehended, interrogated, and publicly executed the man, to little fanfare. The Saviors took major issue with the move, as it broke one of the town's rules, unbeknownst to Harrison at the time. The Saviors then engaged in a quick firefight with the House, which went in the favor of the latter, and once again soured relations with the Saviors and New Moon, who still closely protected Moody and his men.

Not keen on continuing this protracted conflict, the House found itself readying for hopefully a final strike on the Kamenici, who were attending a summit in Chernogorsk spearheaded by the CPG (Chernarussian Provisional Government). Surprisingly, Kamenici and their ally, Cerna Liska, turned on the CPG and some other civilian groups attending the summit, just as House members were moving into position. Mid-firefight, the House moved in and cleaned up the remaining Cerna Liska and Kamenici soldiers, marking a strong victory and a huge morale boost.

Soon after, Harrison attended the funeral of the old CPG leader, executed by Kamenici, and secondary summit, held by the remainder of the CPG and other civilian organizations, where the House vowed to continue the fight against the Kamenici and Cerna Liska, now dubbed the "Nationalist Front", until they end their war against the foreigners of South Zagoria. The war rages on to this day. However, with advances made in after-apocalypse electricity, the House might have other plans in the works.

After the death of Harrison things died down and the members of the House went into hiding. A few months later Jebediah learned what happened to Harrison and also learned that Harrison had been running a organization called the House. After Jebediah had time to think about what he was going to do, he eventually decided he was going to try and find people to start up Harrison organization again and carry on the legacy that his cousin left behind. Jebediah has now found enough members to start the organization back up and he hopes to pick up where his cousin left off.
