The Deep Demon Worlds Pt. I

After the Sorcerer has disembarked from ERUHKHT further into the depths of the Abyss the Sorcerer has left the Rim Demon Worlds and has entered the Abyssal layer known as the Deep Demon Worlds. Here both the matter and the physical laws of the universe have been irrevocably warped and curdled by the emanations of the Great Old Ones.

The most well known of the Deep Demon Worlds are the Thirteen that comprise the shortest route from ERUHKHT to the Outermost Demon Worlds.

I. ZAEDAOBAOTH
ABODE OF THE MEASURELESS CURATOR
The Demon World ZAEDAOBAOTH consists of churning, cold, dense, oily gray mud and clay continents that are constantly grinding against each other, with occasional mountains of filthy, rotting, fossil infested jade floating in the morass. The skies are sunless and look like a slightly luminous endless sheet of slate, providing dim gray illumination. It is whispered that there are vaults of pure force located in the bowels of this world where artifacts and entities are imprisoned.

II. XYLZHZKH
ABODE OF THE RAZORED WINDS
XYLZHZKH is a Demon World of utter darkness, where even illumination brought from outside is dimmed and suffocated. The lands consist of blobby, melted black glass, with occasional talon like formations of monomolecular obsidian blades. The air is harshly cold and dry.

III. UTUMEGLON
ABODE OF THE CRUSHING DEVASTATION
Under low, throbbing skies of lead vapour lies UTUMEGLON, a Demon World of flattened, cold, black ashes and cinders. UTUMEGLON has crushing gravity levels and the world is suffused with lethal radiation levels. Occasional charred and slagged  ruins of fortifications  spot the wastes and lifeless, saucer like flying cities soar below the gray clouds.

IV. KAGZALAG
ABODE OF THE UTTERMOST ECSTASIS
The skies of KAGZALAG consist of churning purple frothy clouds with floating luminous clusters of oily green egg like spheres providing shifting green illumination. The lands are a gently rolling steppe of 10 foot tall razored brass grass  punctuated by seas of quicksilver and ridges of basalt spires. Tales tell of pleasure palaces and nyphmariums located on the sides of the basalt spires that provide the utmost in otherworldly sensual delights.

V. ADADAIYAG
ABODE OF THE VAPOURS OF PERDITION
A Demon World consisting of a lightless, 4-foot gap between two endless, parallel planes of dull, black, impermeable force.
