Domination (variously written in upper or lower case) is a brand of powerful runicDeathmagic that allows the wielder to control and reshape souls. It is woven into the very fabric of the Maw and the tower of Torghast and is closely associated with the realm's prisoner/ruler, the Jailer. Domination was originally the power used to seal the Jailer away in the Maw, but over his eons of imprisonment, he has found a way to weaponize the magic and turn it against his enemies. The hallmark of Domination magic is its distinctive runes.Runeblades infused with Domination are known as mourneblades.
Similarly, it has been stated Domination was used to seal away the Jailer, but it has also been stated that the Eternal Ones drew upon the magic of the Heart of the Forest to keep the Maw inescapable. This would imply that the Heart of the Forest is also tied to Domination.
The [Medallion of Dominion] is able to alter the very fabric of the Shadowlands with sufficient power, as well as forcibly subjugate venthyr to the control of the bearer; it thus may be related to Domination.
