"through many a dark and drearie Vaile
They pass'd, and many a Region dolorous,
O're many a Frozen, many a Fierie Alpe,
Rocks, Caves, Lakes, Fens, Bogs, Dens, and shades of death,
A Universe of death, which God by curse
Created evil, for evil only good,
Where all life dies, death lives, and nature breeds,
Perverse, all monstrous, all prodigious things,
Abominable, inutterable, and worse"

The only true city is Mingol Zharr-Naggrund (literally "The Great City of Fire and Desolation"), which lies to the north of the dark empire in the heavily-mined Plain of Zharr. Surrounded by a constant miasma of black smoke and poison fumes, this colossal obsidian ziggurat is a monument to industrialization gone mad. It sits astride the River Ruin, a waterway that the Chaos Dwarfs have extended as a great canal beyond the Falls of Doom, giving the city naval access to the Sea of Chaos. The frigid waters of this river are harnessed to power massive steam-driven engines and cool the cities forges, which work day and night; finally, they are discharged from Zharr Nagrund's south gate, carrying the toxic effluent of all this industry to the Sea of Dread. Millennia of mining, smelting and industrial experimentation have transformed the Darklands from a barren but innocuous wasteland into a poisonous desolation, habitable only by degenerate mutants and the grisly minions of the Undead.
