In a bygone Age, Divine and Primordial forces clashed in what was called the Dawn War. At that time, the Lattice of Heaven was sundered. However through the tireless efforts of certain deities, their exarchs, and enlightened mortals, the Lattice of Heaven was rebuilt. Shortly thereafter, the Nomocratic Empire was born.
The Nomocratic Empire has its foundation in Divine Laws. Enforcement is generally in the hands of the Marut, while diplomatic concerns are primarily handled by the Shardmind.
While the rebuilt Lattice of Heaven made travel, trade, and diplomacy much easier between the Deific Dominions, Border Islands, and Astral Motes, it is still in the process of spreading throughout the Astral Sea; leaving plenty of room for adventure.
One major nexus point in the Lattice is an Astral Mote called Prizm. It’s a port of call – home away from home – for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers.
