The Game of Perithog is a level 6 Domain-based, psychic realm within the Thon Iridescence.

Background[edit | edit source]

Despite the warning, visitors to this realm are placed along a vast 3-dimensional board, where they would make moves either individually or as a team, playing against the disembodies voice of being known as Perithog, the self-proclaimed Grandmaster. Any pieces upon the board that lose the game are discarded and completely destroyed, without any chance of replay. However, those that win the game can be given a reward or play again for best 2 out of 3 for an even better kind of reward. The rewards offered by Perithog include freedom from the realm or the ability to pick from a random selection of different cyphers, usually belonging to those who previously lost against Perithog.

Replay of this realm is considered to be inactive for visitors.[1]
