A Blizzard in Ravenloft
This realm is ruled by the Autocrat, whose rule is enforced by the Swords of Nier. Passage in and out is extremely regulated by the Nierites.
The Nierites routinely go on crusades to purge the neighbouring domains of “evil.” The Autocrat has also openly talked of raising an army to destroy Mezzenbone, and executing Dazzok. Some whisper that the reason for this is that the Autocrat was the one who had the original deal with Dazzok for purchasing weapons.
The Nierites claim that their land was stolen by evildoers, away from their world they were working to save. They talk of Dark Powers, domains, and escaping their prison. Most people consider them mad, especially when they ponder how exactly the Swords of Nier would save anyone.
