The Realm of Chaos.

The Realm of Chaos is the realm of the Dark Gods, a nightmarish landscape whose trespassers are devoured, grotesquely transformed or damned for all eternity. It is a dimension of magic and raw emotions that feeds on the Mortal Realms.[1][7b]

Crystal Labyrinth of Tzeentch

Main Article: Crystal Labyrinth of Tzeentch

The Crystal Labyrinth of Tzeetch is the heart of Tzeentch's domain in the Realm of Chaos. It is an endless, sprawling maze or labyrinth, though to call it that it is an understatement as the labyrinth itself rivals the Dominion of Khorne in size. Its shimmering brilliance is filled with corridors and bridges criss-cross through thought, time and space and it is illuminated by magical potential and energies of raw madness.[4][12a]

At the heart of the Cyrstal Labyrinth is the Impossible Fortress, where Tzeentch sits and schemes in his sanctum.[13a]

Skull Lands

Main Article: Skull Lands

The kingdom of Khorne is an unending battle field of brass and blood, and the largest in the Realm of Chaos. It is a hellish land of wastelands stained with blood, bone-strewn plains and rage-spewing volcanoes. The landscape is scarred by craters created by the fall of titanic combatants that serve as monuments to their fervour. In this endless fight pit of desolation the greatest warriors, mortal and daemon alike are constantly tested.[2a][5]

At its centre is Khorne's great fortress, the Brass Citadel.[10]

Dominion of Slaanesh

Main Article: Dominion of Slaanesh

Slaanesh's domain can be identified by the elaborate architecture and disturbing, fleshy wastelands. At the heart of his domain there are six circular sub-realms arranged in concentric rings surrounding his godly palace. Each of these sub-realms is seemingly a paradise dedicated to the most celebrated desires of the Dark prince. They contain a hypnotic allure that causes trespassers to be trapped forever in overindulging their desires, turned into both celebrants and defenders of these realities.[7b]

The only way for an intruder to reach the Palace of Slaanesh at the very centre of his territory is to traverse through all six rings.[7b]

Unaligned Locations

There are various locations beyond the domains of the Dark Gods that are unaligned with them:

Places In-Between

There are various locations that straddle in the spaces between the Realm of Chaos and the Cosmos Arcane:

  • Varanspire: The fortress of Archaon located in the Realm of Chaos and is linked to the nexus of gateways connecting the Mortal Realms known as the Eightpoints. It's so large it spans the Mortal Realms with spiked walls, jagged spires, towers and keeps reaching into horror-choked skies.[3]
  • Blight City: When the Great Horned Rat ascended to the pantheon of the Dark Gods the sprawling skaven capital a verminopolis called the Blight City was merged into the Realm of Chaos. The skaven used arcane machinery to try to expand their Under-Empire, but the machines went awry and the resulting implosion sank the city to the edges of the Realm of Chaos. From this position that straddled reality the skaven were able to gnaw tunnels into the Mortal Realms and beyond.[2b][6]
