The Starless Night
The Ionian Dominion
The empire that dominated Ashalar and other lands prior to the plague. Also, the principle of sovereignty upon which the empire was founded, as documented in the Articles of Dominion. It was founded when the Kayn clanhold led a successful rebellion against the superior forces of the Windspire Trade Consortium, and fell 312 years later after the Seige of Nakkiel.
The Ionian Dominion is more commonly referred to as “Ionia” or “The Empire.” The name comes from the elvish name, “the Children of Prophecy,” for the humans who settled there after leaving Ebenthaia. Ioun is a deity of prophecy, revered by the elves.
