Dominion Overlord[edit]

What is a god, A title given to self privileged deities.
—Infernal Aknamkanon introduces himself as the Dominion Overlord

I was not like this before I was a follower of the gods. But then they did nothing as everything that I have ever lived was taken from me. What good is worshipping the gods when they have no care in the world for us. I say we put their power to the test because even gods know how to bleed.

Hate Gauntlet[edit]

The Hate Gauntlet has a long history. In the past, a dragon with intense power ruled the land. Due to his unparalleled power, no one dared to challenge him in the Arena Tournaments. As time went on the dragon was not satisfied with his everyday life. He wanted, no, needed more, and so he called out to the gods demanding them to let him into their kingdom. He roared unceasingly for days and weeks. Eventually, an army of angels came to ask the dragon to stop. When he refused, the angels attacked, but being a mighty dragon, he caused the angels to fall. It wasn't until the god of war came down and struck the dragon that he was stopped. On the verge of death the dragon used the last of his magical power to transform himself into a gauntlet of pure hate. They say whoever wields this gauntlet shall have the power of the dragon and so much more.

Creating a Dominion Overlord[edit]
