Fortress Hive Of Xanon by NyxenAvenger Fortress Hive Of Xanon by NyxenAvenger
Behold Xanon's main base of operations, the Fortress Hive! Orginally built by Parachk himself, it was intended to be a place where he could carry out his work in isolation from the other Dark Ones. After his demise his son Xanon led his demon army towards the dark and unholy place and transformed it into a sprawling fortress where he could consolidate his power over Underrealm. Perched on the highest tip of the Fortress, he watched as his armies defeated his rivals down below.

The Fortress Hive also houses The Black Guard, physically enhanced and heavily armoured veteran daemen that serve as the honor guard for Xanon. Once they were many and served as shock troopers, but the civil wars on Underrealm had dwindled their numbers and in the end only the most experienced ones remained.

Nah, the insides of its mouth (that bit covered in loads of sharp teeth) got replaced with an powerful engine that helps the fortress move around.

I guess you could say it burns people if they're silly enough to get too close haha

Woah, excellent design. It looks better than my apartment!

So, does it move from place to place, or does it simply float above some kind of magical foundation that keeps it aloft.

Thanks man!

Yeah it moves from place to place, it's like a breathing living creature in some ways what with the moving tentacles and the mouth/engine.

So, does it like, have a consciousness or a will, or is it just a construct of flesh rather than metal?

The floating flesh islands of Underrealm usually will have some form of sentience and consciousness, as they are only driven by their need to slowly consume and grow. Parachk may have lived in isolation for centuries but he loved his work!

However this one doesn't have that need, or any consciousness for that matter, due to Xanon basically lobotomizing it and replacing whatever organs and flesh that was inside it with the foundations for his hive/city/fortress.
