The Southern Kingdoms
Khorne is the Chaos God of blood, hatred, violence and war. He acts outwardly by seeking the deaths of others, preferring close combat over ranged weaponry, and the only things he respects are strength and martial prowess. As such, he is completely opposed to the decadent Slaanesh.
Khorne is described as an extremely well-muscled, horned, beast-headed monster that stands hundreds of feet tall. Seated on a brass throne atop a mountain of skulls in a field of splintered bones and lakes of blood and wielding a terrible sword. The weapon is said to be so powerful that a single slash from it can tear open rifts in time and space, and destroy worlds with a single stroke. The skulls are described as belonging to both his victims and his worshipers alike, as Khorne cares not from whom the blood flows, only that it does.
Khorne’s personal rune takes the shape of a stylized skull. Khorne’s sacred number is 8.
The Great Blood-Fortress of Khorne is always geared for war. Massive forges and factories ring with the hammering of steel, and demons pick up sword and axes, and don sheets of chainmail, which soon sink under their flesh, leaving bloody and tattered skin behind. Extending from the cliff high Iron walls, great sheets of fresh skin, both human and alien, flutter in a never ending gale, and a sea of splintered bones and half gnawed gobbets of meat extend for miles around the gates. Within is a massive pile of skulls that stretch into the raging sky, and upon the bone mountain is the Throne of the Blood God,
