"It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume."
- – Boromir
The Dark Lands is a large and inhospitable region in the Warhammer world, tainted by the influence of Chaos. It is composed of far reaching plains and wastelands, separated from the realms of man in the west by the World's Edge Mountains and spanning to the Mountains of Mourn in the east, which are populated by the many Greenskin tribes that roam the plains, along with a few Ogre tribes. The land in the south of the Dark Lands gives way to the Sea of Dread, whereas to the north the flat wastes become a sheer cliff and plateau. Just south of this plateau, on the north-eastern border of the lands, is where the Chaos Dwarfs have made their domain, in the Plain of Zharr.
