The House of the Laughing Mask, or HOLM, was conceived out of a want to role play in all aspects of Amtgard. Its founders where a group of like minded people hailing from Dragonspine Proper. What came of many brainstorming sessions was 6 Pillars, each representing an aspect of Amtgard as we see it. While members are encouraged to participate in all pillars it is not required. Generally members pick one or two pillars to focus on their strengths. Members of the house are expected to promote role playing in their specialties.

The heraldry of the house is a black half mask inside a black circle on a grey field. The house colors are grey, Black, and Silver. Each member may add their respective Pillar to the house heraldry.
