Giahn - The home planet of House Tiamät
The Largest city of Giahn surrounds the Imperial Palace and is known simply as the Imperial City.
At the heart of The God-Emperor's main residence, The Imperial Palace, is the Throne Room; a circular chamber with a dirt floor, built around the site of The Throne Of El.The Throne itself is a simple, block-shaped boulder, but all heirs to the Great Houses, and even The God-Emperor’s heir, must sit upon it at their time of sucession to be accepted or rejected by EL.
Other palaces on Giahn include The Palace of Winds, The Palace of Doors, The Summer Palace, and The Palace of Skies, each built on a site significant to the history of the Tiamäti people (see MAPS).
House Tiamät is divided into three clans; Ashik, a clan of fearsome warriors, Enna, a clan respected for its intellectual nature, and Gok, respected for their talents as bureaucrats and public servants. The majority of God-Emperors have been of Clan Ashik.
