" 'The dreary plain, forlorn and wild, the seat of desolation, void of light! ' Ha!"
Toland, the Shattered

Additional Notes & Thoughts

This is a reference to the work, Paradise Lost, by John Milton (located in the first book at about line 180, spoken by the figure of Satan). It is followed shortly by the figure of Satan breaking free and urging his soldiers to follow him to the island of Desolation to gather their strength – and to continue their war against Paradise.

It is also here in the works that they construct the capital of Hell, the great tower of Pandemonium, upon the completion of which, they gather once more for the next battle.
