The commonly accepted symbols for each of the Mortal Realms; clockwise from the top is Azyr, Ghyran, Ghur, Chamon, Aqshy, Shyish, Ulgu, and Hysh.

The Mortal Realms, also called the Eight Realms, are a group of eight near-infinite planes of existence revealed to Sigmar by the Great Drake Dracothion after the destruction of the World Before Time during the End Times.[1][2][3]

Following the invasion of the Mortal Realms centuries ago by the forces of Chaos, Archaon's domain spread across seven of the eight Mortal Realms, sparing only Azyr, the Realm of Heavens.[5]

Following the destruction of the World Before Time, the aetheric energy released by the victory of Chaos gathered together into the eight realm spheres. Though isolated, these realms are still linked.

The Realms of Ulgu and Hysh orbit each other; when Ulgu eclipses Hysh, it is nighttime for the other realms.

Azyr can be seen from other realms as a glowing star in the sky.[6] The realms are connected by Realmgates, but are also linked by the stars above.[4]

The individual realms aren't infinite in size, but they are massive, each larger in itself than the World That Was.

In the metaphysical centre of each of the realms, reality is stable and civilizations can be created. Towards the edges, the stable physical laws of reality tend to break down and the magical energies that define each individual realm will rip travellers apart into their elemental components.[6]
