Godly stage
The Godly Stage is a large, hellish plateau on the northern end of Alstalsia where the majority of Heaven's Contention was fought, as well as where it was eventually ended. Stained with the blood of the Gods, it is a place of much historical significance, however the Alstalain government denies entry to all, only making exceptions on a basis of need. Some critics say this is to hide the truth, that no gods truly ever existed, but officials rebuke, saying it is not only a holy place, but extremely dangerous. With how harsh some other areas of Alstalsia are, it is easy to believe it is an issue of safety.
