Origin Edit

Ashoka the Great (304 BC - 232 BC) was an Indian emperor of the Maurya Dynasty. The pillars sat on both sides of his throne when he waged a destructive war against the state of Kalinga. It ended with Ashoka conquering his foes ending with 200,000 people dead. Sitting upon his throne, marveling at his victory he had a moment of realization. Upon the end of the war Ashoka started to see the real effect of his crimes of war. Falling to his knees in sorrow and regret he declared that he would change his ways. Converting to Buddhism he became a king of the people rebuilding and taking care of the families of the men who had fallen in battle.

EffectsEdit

The pillar left of his throne absorbed the outraged from those killed by Ashoka's order, causing those who stand around it to break out into a violent riot. The right pillar took in Ashoka's sorrow and regret, pushing out a lethargic aura into those around it. Those effected will lay down and just rest or sleep with no concern to do anything.
