The Dominion of Silence

The Dominion were once a faction within the Order of the White Sun until Albena the Silent broke away from the nation. She believed that Guiscard the Holy wasn't doing enough to fight the Old Gods and the creatures they unleased upon the continents. While they still maintain an alliance with The Order, they are a separate entity.

Heads of Government

Albena the Silent

She is revered not only as a New Gods but also as the Queen of The Dominion. Her word is law, No man may question her.

The Six Marshal of Drav

Below Albena there are six marshals that are granted governance of the six districts of Drav. These marshals manage the day to day aspects of the districts and must adhere to any law or decree set by Albena.

The Burg

Marshal: Geno Dragov

Sonik

Marshal: Ilija Lazarov
Home to the remaining quarter of The Dominions agriculture, The district of Sonik also shares the eastern border with the Forsaken Knights. Sharing the border with the Forsaken Knights has created countless issues with refugees that travel upriver from Rotter to Devo.

Zadiv

Marshal: Malina Petrov
The District of Zadiv runs the full length of the southern border of The Dominion and The Order. The district is the largest of the six and is home to 75% of the agriculture of The Dominion. The district is also home to some of the highest tax rates within The Dominion with all the trade that moves through the southern border.

Targovo

Marshal: Yoana Cvetkov

Culture

The Dominion are a religious order that has a culture rooted deep in their faith and hatred of old gods. As an act of faith, Knights of the order take a vow of silence.  

Celebrations of Defiance

Throughout the year throughout Pangeria, there are day when different races and cultures celebrate the Old Gods. On these days The Dominion hold celebrations of defiance. Large banquets are held where they berate and disrespect the Old Gods and their traditions. In some towns they will set fires to sections of forest to show their hatred of earth gods. Some port cities will hold whaling contests, fisherman are rewarded for hunting whales that are either the largest or smallest. This is a way of disrespecting the Gods of the Sea by hunting some of its gentlest creatures. Each city has its own way of celebrating these holidays.

Assets

The Knights of Silence are masters of the horse. This has helped them excel in battle and are able to fund the holy order as horse breeders and trainers.

Granted Divine Powers

Elementals

Unlike The Order, the Knights of Silence view elementals as powerful weapons. Many elementals flee the Order and join the knights as a way to be of service to the New Gods. Within The Order and Knights of Silence there are Fire, Air and Earth Elementals.
