Chaldis > Domain
A region of fertile land within the Stone Wastes, enabling life and civilisation. Domains exist due to a pact made with one of the four Courts of the Gods. In return for rituals and faith, the domains exist, allowing the Greensward to take root and the light of the sun mirrors to appear in the sky, mimicking the skies of a long dead world.
Pacts that sustain domains can vary. For example, in the domain of Byrnocht, the domain is sustained by willing blood sacrifice, where contestants hold religious gladiatorial combats for this honour. In Ichero, the domain is sustained by the righteousness of the king’s rule – and the domain is slowly weakening due to the fact that there had been no true heir on the throne for over one hundred years.
