Hall of Leng

The Hall of Leng is a region within the Sanctum Imperialis.[1]

Leng is known to have been residence of the Emperor while He still walked. It is said to have been a place of chronological distortion where it is said he measured the angles of space and time.[1] Existing within the Himalazia Mountains of Terra, the Hall exists on a pulled thread in the fabric of space-time, described as a scan on the skin of space. Ancient men built a labyrinthine structure here which the Emperor came to expand upon.[2]

By the time of the Horus Heresy, the Hall of Leng was home of the Emperor's personal library, which contained 19.6 million different books.[3a] During the Siege of Terra, Garviel Loken, Kyril Sindermann, and Hellick Mauer all were drawn to the Hall of Leng. While Sindermann was seeking knowledge to combat Chaos, Loken arrived there seemingly by accident and coincidence. Within the Library, Sindermann is frustrated to find little to do with ancient sorcery and the collection appears to be poetry and stories the Emperor personally enjoyed.[3b] However upon discovering tests related to the Dark King, a door that had not previously been there then appeared to Loken. The door led Loken to the Vengeful Spirit as it was being assaulted by the Emperor and His warriors.[3c]

Trivia

  • The Hall of Leng may be a reference to the infamous Leng Plateau from the H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, described as a place where realities merge.
