counter question, because why not...

What happens to a demon if it's riding someone traveling through a wide
blighted area, and there is _really_ no life anywhere  for miles around?



Beatrice Otter:
You mean, no lice or rats or whatnot to kill and thereby shed chaos? Well, first of all, shedding chaos mostly depends on how much uphill/order-producing magic the demon is committing, so I'd say the first and most obvious thing is that the amount of uphill magic they were capable of would be *severely* reduced/rationed, if they did any at all. Second, there are other ways of committing entropy than killing vermin. Rusting things, burning them, stone crumbling to dust, etc., would all be options. But the demon wouldn't want to stay in that place if they had any choice.
