The Arad Plains is a region in the Realm of Aqshy. [1]

It lies to the south of the Great Parch covering about eight hundred square miles with a mixture of farmland and primitive strongholds. [1a]

History

During the Age of Chaos, Darkoath tribes that worshipped Tzeentch entered from the Great Parch and conquered the area, however they in turn were crushed by invading warriors of Khorne. [1b]

In the Age of Sigmar the Darkoath Queen Verda the Sworn united the tribes and crushed most of the invaders and their strongholds. [1b]

Locations

  • The Abattoir: A powerful stronghold of Khorne ruled by Khrall and garrisoned by Blood Warriors. A powerful fortress with a series of circular walls all linked by a single walkway to the inner keep. [1b] It resembled a claw with eight talons – each being a long curved tower cloaked in skulls and streaming crimson light from its arrow-slits. Its gates are vast made of huge slabs of brass and copper. [1c]
  • Cruicible Mound: Nine sacred mounds that can be found on the plains, steep side with a bowl shaped depression at the top. [1a]
  • Scornwood Holt. [1a]
  • Sickle Keep: Built at the heart of the plains, [1a] Verda’s personal stronghold had stone walls centred around a fortified tower. [1c]
