Saunt Proc founds The Circle in -43 A.R., a group of like-minded Avout who claimed that symbols have no meaning at all, and that all discourse that pretends to mean anything is nothing more than a game played with syntax, or the rules for putting symbols together.

In 2857 A. R. the Post-Sack Convox reorganizes the concents. Number of Orders reduced, including perhaps The Circle. Remaining Orders redistributed to bring about greater “balance” between Procian and Halikaarnian tendencies.
