Kurnugia, the largest Abyssal realm, is ruled by the goddess and demon lordLamashtu, the Demon Queen.1


Stories claim that Kurnugia was once ruled by the demon lord Areshkagal, a daughter of Lamashtu, but was purloined by Lamashtu before she ascended to divinity. This story is denied by followers of Lamashtu and Areshkagal herself.1


Kurnugia is a region vast enough to contain entire planets, and contains every known environment from freezing mountains and arid deserts to those incomprehensible in any normal understanding due to the nature of the Outer Rifts. The realm is dominated by demons and fiendish gnolls.1


Kurnugia's regions include:

  • The Birthing Hills, pregnant hills that issue forth monsters, including demons and fiendish gnolls.1
  • The Bloodgash Nations, a group of thirteen kingdoms of fiendish gnolls.2
  • The Goblin Tunnels, located within a valley in the Xorian Mountains, which act as a portal from Kurnugia to the Goblin hero-gods' Abyssal realm of Basalfeyst.1
  • The forsaken Nightmare Fields, in which Lamashtu abandons captured victims tortured by seemingly real nightmares. These recreations of nightmares fertilize the native flowers.1
  • Tharsekti, a forested island in a stormy sea which is home to the largest nation of gnolls with the Abyssal realm. The ruler is Vandaku, a gigantic monster. Within the sea, a nascent demon lord Kalvakus resides.1
  • The huge peaks of the Xorian Mountains, which mark one of the borders of Kurnugia and are full of monsters ruled by the nascent demon lord Daclau-Sar.1
  • Lamashtu's diamond-shaped palace-city of Yanaron at the heart of Kurnugia, where many of Lamashtu's followers vie for power, including the nascent demon lords Nightripper, Izyagna and Murnath.1
