The Mandate of Hell is a term among the Kuei-jin to describe the legitimacy of a Court and its ruling Ancestor.


The Mandate of Hell is the counterpart of the Mandate of Heaven that governs mortal institutions. According to the Mandate of Hell, the rulership of a Court is preordained by the Wheel of Ages and the August Personage. Kuei-jin use multiple methods, including divination, astrological charts and horoscopes to divine the chosen figure.

Under the young Kuei-jin, the term has taken a different meaning. It is the justification to rebel against a corrupt, wicked or derelict official of a Court. Elder Kuei-jin refute the legitimacy of this interpretation, but it gains traction among the younger generations, particulary the Bamboo Princes.
