Domination is without question the most dangerous art within Achaea. It
involves the summoning of entities from the Chaos Plane as well as Chaos Lords.
You risk your life and your very soul in dealing with them, for they are
powerful and not to be trifled with.

To gain the services of a Chaos Entity, you must first discover a way into the
Chaos Plane. Once there, search them out and DOMINATE <entity>. If the entity
feels you are wasting its time, it may choose to attack you or it may simply
ignore you. However, if it feels it can gain something, it will begin a
bargaining dialogue with you, asking how you intend to pay it for its services.
Answer the questions as you like, but be warned that cheapness can have its own
punishment. At any time during the bargaining, you may ABORT to end the
dialogue. The entity may grow enraged at this, however, or may simply refuse to
bargain further with you.

After you have finished your bargaining, you will see, if you type PACTS, what
pacts you have made with entities. If you have a pact made, you may call upon
the aid of that entity by doing SUMMON <entity>. In some cases, the entity
itself will come, and in some cases it will send its minions to assist you.

When an entity is summoned, it will, in most cases, remain in the land for a
full day. There are, however, ways to send it back to its infernal realm
prematurely. BANISH <entity> will accomplish this if it is your wish, while
others may have abilities that allow them to drive the entity off. An entity
cannot be killed (though an entity's minions can be). It will only be driven
back to the Chaos Plane if it falls into a state that would kill a mortal.

Summary of general Domination-related commands:

DOMINATE <entity>          : Begin to dominate a chaos entity.
ABORT                      : Abort negotiations with the entity.
PACTS                      : See what pacts you have with entities.
PACT CANCEL <entity>       : Cancel a pact with an entity.
SUMMON <entity>            : Summon an entity or one of its servants. (*)
SUMMON <list of entities>  : Summon multiple entities at once. (*)
BANISH <entity>            : Banish an entity back to the plane of Chaos.
CALL ENTITIES              : Call your loyal entities to you.
CALL ENTITIES PASSIVE      : Call your loyal entities to you in passive

* You may prepend/append SWIFT to a single or list of entities to summon. This summons them with a karma cost instead of an equilibrium cost (for each entity).

Certain entities cannot be summoned in this way: GOLGOTHA, XENOPHAGE, PIRIDON, and ISTRIA. Entities summoned in this way will not attack passively for ten seconds, though may still be commanded to attack actively.
