The only planet ever to be terraformed and colonized in the Archaipelago. Various races were created by the demiurge godling formerly known as The Looking Glass, a being of unknown origin (believed by some to be an ascended form of the lost entity Quizical, or of Haliki Movarion, or both)

The destruction of this colony during the so-called Abaddon Catastrophe raised new fears and concerns regarding viruses, blights, perversities and other ailments that could affect the higher toposophics. It was seen as a direct precursor to the Archaipelago Attacks of one thousand years later.

The planet Focal Point remains an unpopulated wasteland, and the Archosaurian Entity has declared it to be a restricted planet.
