Orphys is the largest and most prosperous of Eox’s few cities,
and is home to the Eternal Convocation, the council of bone
sages who assign Eoxian ambassadors to other Pact Worlds
and appoint representatives to the Pact Council on Absalom
Station. The Eternal Convocation also rules Orphys directly,
making it the only major necropolis not controlled by a single
bone sage.

All of Orphys is enclosed within a bubble of breathable
atmosphere, making it one of the most common destinations
for living visitors outside of the Lifeline. Given that Orphys
is as close to a planetary capital as Eox offers, most citizens
of the Pact Worlds believe the necrovites who rule the city
maintain the atmosphere to encourage living tourism and
make it easier for Pact World officials to interface with their
Eoxian counterparts. In truth, the Eternal Convocation doesn’t
much care how the atmosphere impacts the daily lives of living
visitors. The atmosphere domes were established centuries ago
as part of an experiment into how various conditions impact
the long-term stability and potential decay of undead bodies,
and that experiment has continued uninterrupted for hundreds
of years.

Unlike the cities within the Lifeline, Orphys does little to
accommodate living residents beyond providing a suitable
atmosphere for them to breathe. Food vendors are rare and
almost exclusively deal in preserved foods with shelf lives
measured in years. Even so, it is far easier to maintain livable
conditions here than in nearly any other necropolis, and Orphys
has built a number of businesses around the opportunities
living creatures present. Like the Necroforge, it is a major
hub in the necrograft trade and contains administrative
and business centers that allow Pact World companies and
organizations to interact with the Eternal Convocation.
