A part of the Six Circles of Slaanesh.

The Dominion of Slaanesh is Slaanesh's domain in the Realm of Chaos. It can be identified by the elaborate architecture and disturbing, fleshy wastelands.[1b]

At the heart of his domain there are six circular sub-realms arranged in concentric rings surrounding his godly palace.[1b]

Unlike the other Chaos Gods, Slaanesh loves to bring visitors into his domains and watch them fall to his minions or the dangers of the land, taking great pleasure in such failing. The very domain gnaws at the body, mind and soul with subtle and devious snares of the pleasures of the realms and, once they have sampled them, they desire ever more, recklessly indulging in them without thinking of the consequences. Those that enter his domain are likely to be trapped there for an eternity and will never leave unchanged.[71]

The herds of Steeds of Slaanesh inhabit the glorious pastures, known to have rivers of exotic spirits and scented oils.[1e]

Slaanesh has made many claims to the edges of the Mortal Realms and as such many of these surreal landscapes lead straight into his domain and his domain bleeds into the Mortal Realms.[1a]

Agriculture

The hellish gardens of Slaanesh's domain had souls of those who had wronged the Dark Prince buried in fleshy sediment with only their forearm and lower legs sticking out above the ground. In the past Hellflayers were used to mow down these limbs, provoking an extreme reaction from their victims as these limbs are rich in nerves, usually resulting in a chorus of sudden outraged screams. These limbs are cursed to regrow overnight whenever they are cut and are not permitted to die without the god's permission.[1d]

Economy

When a mortal dies the Daemonettes often take truths from their dying lips, unique morsels of suffering born of terrifying screams, which takes the form of a currency valued by those in the Circles of Slaanesh, more so than gold or jewels.[1c]
