Rak'shir Slayn SC2-LotV Cncpt

The Pits of Ascension

The Pits of Ascension or the Pits of Sacrifice are dueling grounds located on Slayn, used by the Tal'darim in Rak'Shir duels.

The grounds are large enough to host a fleet of carriers or, as at times been the case, up to thousands of Tal'darim warriors who participate in Rak'Shir. At either end of the grounds (east-west) lies a huge, gaping pit where the defeated fall, all the way down into the planet's molten core. The grounds are surrounded by a border, where thousands of Tal'darim may watch the carnage as a source of entertainment.[1]
