Domain SMTIV

Concept art

Domain is a term for a type of location found in Shin Megami Tensei IV.



Domains are areas created by powerful demons to capture prey. The entrance to a Domain is a swirling green portal that disappears once prey has entered. An exit exists in another part of the Domain which can be used to escape. A Domain appears organic in nature with long yellowish brown tendrils spread across the walls, ceiling, and ground with red lights moving through them. The only way to remove a domain is by killing the demon who made it, which results in the Domain disappearing. Domains that are not encountered during the main story generally have the Mapper App disabled.
