The Demesne blends various styles and features some impressive architecture.

The Stagnant Demesne is the fifth and final episode of Heretic, and part of the Shadow of the Serpent Riders expansion.


The episode takes place within the dark fortress where D'Sparil was born. It was the Serpent Rider's original lair and base of operations before the construction of the crystal domes on Parthoris. The fortress is most likely located on one of the Outer Worlds.

The episode's theme is very similar to the style of The Dome of D'Sparil, but it also incorporates some of the natural elements of Hell's Maw.

D'Sparil's personal Maulotaur bodyguards (3-8, depending on the skill level) await Corvus at the very heart of the fortress. After they are defeated, a cluster of portals open up that presumably take him to other Outer Worlds before the events of Heretic II.
