Domination

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Often invisible to the untrained eye, the Chaos entities summoned by practitioners of Domination - members of the Occultist and (less frequently) Outcast classes - can be some of the deadliest companions in Achaea.

Though once connected with the Chaos Plane, Lord Taug, and Prince Pazuzu are no longer welcome there, and thus no bargains can be made with these two Chaos Lords through the abilities of Domination.

ORDER DOPPLEGANGER <action> <target>

Details:

When you summon Piridon, he will send to you a doppleganger. The doppleganger will look like you, though it must be referred to as 'doppleganger'. The doppleganger is much different from other entities in that it may be remotely commanded.

Actions:

  • CHANNEL <ab>: Allows you to channel certain Occult abilities through your doppleganger. These include: Ague, Devolution, Eldrichmists, Quicken, Shrivel, Timewarp, and Warp.
  • CLOAK: Masks your doppleganger's entry and exit.
  • EXITS: Shows the exits from the room your doppleganger is in.
  • LOOK: Your doppleganger looks at the room it is in.
  • MOVE <dir>: Your doppleganger moves in a specific direction.
  • RETURN: Your doppleganger returns to you.
  • SEEK <target>: Your doppleganger seeks a specific adventurer. If he is flying, it will go and wait underneath. Trees present no obstacle to this.

Special note about channeling: the channel to your doppleganger is a two-way link, however briefly it may be in operation. Any backlash from an attack channeled through your doppleganger has a very high likelihood of continuing through that link and harming you directly.

Glaaki Glaaki, the Eldritch Ascendant
Syntax: SUMMON GLAAKI
COMMAND ABOMINATION AT <target>
Details:

Ancient; formidable; greatest of the Chaos Lords. The Eldritch Ascendant is all of these and many things left best unspoken. Ruthlessly pragmatic, Glaaki tore his rule from the hands of those thought untouchable. Any who pact with him beware, for slights can fester a thousand years or more.

To those granted his grace, the Ascendant shall bestow the use of one of his abominable servants. This avatar, when commanded to violate a victim whose aura has been made sufficiently vulnerable to external assault, shall determine the fundamental nature of the target and grant the occultist the greatest weapon of all; knowledge of their subject's true name.

(*) an aura can be made sufficiently vulnerable through the cleanseaura ability in Occultism.
(**) truenames gained in this way have a much shorter lifespan than those gained through standard methods.
