Geography

Like most Daemon Worlds, Drakaasi is mind-warpingly strange. Befitting of a world dedicated to Khorne, its greatest feature is a sea of blood which connects the cities of the planet. Each city has its own arena where games are held in honour of the Blood God. Some are no more than shanty towns sitting atop the ocean of blood while others are unique; one is a great crystal which resonates with music dedicated to the lord of battles, another is nothing but a battlefield where men are regularly sent to their deaths to add to the Skull Throne, and yet another is a graveyard, where the titanic remains of gigantic warriors and their weapons litter the ground and have been turned into dwellings by the new inhabitants. Each honours the Blood God in its own way.[1]

Underneath the great cities of Drakaasi are many caverns where Scaephylyds, the xenos who form the slave caste of the daemon world, dwell.[1]

Society

Everything on Drakaasi is made to honour the Blood God. The most prominent facet of this is the gladiatorial games where thousands meet their deaths every day.

There are many diverse members of the planet's ruling class, including Daemons, barbarian chieftains, Amazon-like huntresses, Chaos Space Marines, and regular men trying to act like nobility. They often get into petty squabbles which result in open warfare, but their main occupation is to raid other worlds for slaves to fight in the great arenas of Khorne. They all, however, submit to the supreme rule of Lord Ebondrake, a reptilian Daemon Prince who sponsors the games and commands the greatest army on Drakaasi.[1]

Military

There are many forces on Drakaasi, all dedicated to the Blood God. The most notable of these is the Ophidian Guard of Lord Ebondrake. They are armoured in resilient black scales and wield deadly swords. They are both disciplined and brutal in combat, fitting servants of the Blood god.[1]
