The Eleven Day Empire was the first Faction Paradox audio and — along with The Shadow Play — half of the first story of The Faction Paradox Protocols.

Publisher's summary[]

PRIMER FOR THE SPIRAL POLITIC (POST-WAR EDITION)
1: FACTION PARADOX

Era: Non-specific.
Technology: Post-linear (subtle), time-active.

Even before the outbreak of the "War in Heaven", Faction Paradox was regarded as the most unpredictable (and opportunistic) of the time-active powers. Aware of the precarious nature of history -- but under no obligation to protect it -- while the other Great Houses were still attempting to uphold a "universal order", the Faction was following its own, far more ambiguous, protocols. Ruthless, secretive and at times difficult to understand, it's hardly surprising that the Faction should have eventually found itself under siege from its rival powers...

Plot[]

Cousin Justine meets with the Unkindness on behalf of House Paradox. The Unkindness tear apart her gift of Dodo meat and use it to show her a prophecy of the future where the Eleven-Day Empire is under attack. As the attack begins Cousin Eliza warns Godfather Morlock who then leads a briefing. Meanwhile Godfather Sabbath Dei has already started to mobilise his forces.
