Bloodloch, the Sanguine Fist
Nestled deep within the Vashnar Mountains, it is a city rooted inexorably in blood. The ancestral city of the Consanguine, it was founded by Emperor Abhorash Nehekhara, and today stands as the stronghold of those who uphold the ways of Strength as well as unyielding will to promote that amongst all its citizens, living or undead.
Brutally efficient and utterly free of the pathetic weaknesses of nature and light, Bloodloch is home to the Teradrim, Carnifex, and Consanguinic Dominion. It is a city that prides Strength in all its forms, and gives no quarter to those who stand against it.
Warded by the vast Mhojave Desert to the west, and by the bleak Shamtota Hills to the east, Bloodloch stands center within Sapience, a still, unbeating heart that extends its power far across the realm. Its warriors are among the fiercest, its will is by far the strongest, and its wrath as unquenchable as the seething volcano the city is built around.
