For true fanaticism, one must leave the Council Lands and head south into the Stone Throne. There the people worship the Queen Ascendant as their goddess supreme. The Congregation is only mentioned in passing as if servants—the Queen pre-dates them, after all. While they recognize the Congregation’s power (and worship of them is not forbidden), the Queen Ascendant is the more present icon and symbol of power. Ritual sacrifices (either token blood sacrifices or animal sacrifices, with the ever-present watch of the Handmaidens to ensure they don’t slip back into the old forms of human sacrifice) take place every week on Fourth-day and on feast days, with people offering up their wealth or other items on occasions of need.

Clothing in the Stone Throne varies much more by caste than by region. There are significant sumptuary laws that regulate what can (and cannot) be worn by people of each specific caste, rank, and profession.

Due to the climate of the region (hot and wet), the normal clothing is light and layered.

Ar Salem Dolem is the capital city of the Stone Throne. Hidden in a pocket valley at the eastern edge of the Jungle of Fangs, it is surprisingly small for its cultural and political importance. Occupied mostly by priests and bureaucrats, Fang Sal'zar also holds court from the Great Temple there.
