The Bastard Tier is a region in Tyranny.

Background[]

Named for its position between two realms (the Northern Empire and the Southern Tiers), the Bastard Tier is a melting pot of cultures, and a place of commerce and intrigue. Even following its conquest by Kyros, it remains a strategically vital area, connecting the Empire to the Tiers below, with Tunon holding court within the city.

As punishment for their intransigence against Kyros, the family lands of many Bastard Tier nobles were rendered lifeless by the Ritual of Fallowing - a merging of Cairn’s power in concert with his disciples that would blight the landscape for generations to come.[1]

Lore: "As punishment for their intransigence against Kyros, the family lands of many Bastard Tier nobles were rendered lifeless by the Ritual of Fallowing - a merging of Cairn’s power in concert with his disciples that would blight the landscape for generations to come. Though a waking and active Archon of Stone was present in past iterations of this ritual, the ritual could, at least in theory, draw its power from a less cogent Cairn to oversee the mystic forces."
