12.8.1 Bloodloch, the City of the Undead
True Strength may only be found through the indomitable might of Undeath, and those who seek that Strength find their home within the cavernous walls of Bloodloch. 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 Undeath. Only the children of the Earthen Lord, or those who have embraced the epitomized form of the Azudim, may stand as citizens within its walls. Brutally efficient and utterly free of the pathetic weaknesses of life and light, Bloodloch is home to the Indorani, Teradrim, and Carnifex guilds, as well as to many great Houses of the Consanguine. 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.
