The Palace of Radiance is Mottom's spring palace, while Alim on Throne is her summer palace. It is floating because Mottom is holding it up by her own force of will (or so she claims) and constantly delivered to by hundreds of flying airships that use devil-engines or similar devices.
Means of Propaganda Edit
Nadia Om visits her kingdoms in the Palace, granting her citizens the beautiful sight of her royalty: It is her showcase of the splendor and luxuries of her empire, and is meant to give hope to the poor and lowly.
She receives a lot of supplicants in her Palace and it is always full of courtesans. Its immense wealth is maintained by the Guilds of Throne and even the Great Dragon Bank of Mammon. However, this is only part of the truth, as Mottom's troops are suppressing the populace of her worlds, enforcing enormous tributes that lead to famine among her suffering subjects. Newly opened worlds are conquered with flying mercenaries, as was lamented by Pryan Sor.
Mottom also takes a hundred of local maidens on each world to use them as servants. The general populace is left unclear of the purpose for the so-called Calling:
- "The girls? Nobody knows what she does with 'em. Has 'em scrub the floors most likely. The rotten, thrice-cursed vampire must have miles of 'em in her estate. Whatever she chooses to do, s' gotta be better than lying around in this blasted mud pit. Eh?
- Yes, they took me daughter. Now sod off." -Unknown
Mottom has a personal order of all-female clerk knights to maintain her palace. Ten of the girls from the one hundred offered each Calling have the opportunity to join the order. The rest are fed to the Tree of Woe.
- The action of the Chapter 4-6 of Wielder of Names takes part in the Palace, and previously in the Chapters 1 and 3, we could see the Palace floating in the sky as well in the Void.
