|Mortal Realms:||Aqshy • Azyr • Chamon • Chaos • Ghur • Ghyran • Hysh • Shyish • Ulgu|
Age of Myth
- Flooding drives the Great Worms out of the cavernous depths beneath the Amber Steppes of Ghur and they begin to crawl across the Steppes, devouring everything in their path.
- Sigmar found Gorkamorka trapped within the amber mass of Drakatoa, the living avalanche that ruled Ghyrria in the Realm of Beasts. With the help of Dracothion, Sigmar managed to free the greenskin god and drive back Drakatoa. Pleased to be freed and infuriated for requiring aid he attacked Dracothion, knocking him senseless in a single blow. Sigmar was moved to ire and attacked the two-headed god. The sheer destructive power of this twelve-day battle shook the Mortal Realms and created the Mountains of Maraz and the Gouge Canyons. This battle drew many beasts, as sunwyrm and shaggoth stood side-by-side agog at his fury and destructive power. Eventually the two gods grew tired, observed their ruined surroundings and the audience of monsters, and laughed. Seeing a god that could match his own battle-lust, he clasped Sigmar's hand and agreed to fight alongside him.[8b] To keep Gorkamorka and his greenskins belligerent nature in check, the God-Council sent him into the wilds of the Mortal Realms to battle monstrous beasts and other innumerable threats.[8c] During his role of monster-hunter he cleared the Ghurland plains.[8a]
Age of Sigmar
As the Age of Sigmar began, many of Ghur's bone-strewn continents were covered in ash by glowing rain.[8d]
- Amber Steppes: Occasional grass strewn hills and craggy expanses of battered stone mark the many fallen empires and kingdoms that the great Waaagh!s of Gorkamorka had broken and the servants of Chaos had finished off. By the time of the Age of Sigmar, only a few nomadic tribesmen called the grasslands home
- Beastfens: A area that contains The Growling Gates
- Beastplains: A place that was almost conquered by the Bloodwrought warband.
- Black Marsh Barony: South of the Amber Steppes, known for good beer and giant turtles the size of a castle, from whose excrement torope gold is extracted.
- Blasted Plain: A storm-lashed wasteland found in the forgotten reaches of Ghur, populated by savage nomads and wind-worshippers.[10a]
- Bloodbloom Fields: Also known as the Singing Steppes, is a field surrounded by ribcages of animals of impossible size covered in red grass and crimson flowers.[10b]
- Bone Desert: A vast sea of sand dunes sprinkled with the gigantic skeletons that may have given it its name, although others claim that the sand itself is bone dust.
- Coast of Tusks
- Darkdeep Ocean
- Druichan Forest: It spreads across a vast icy wilderness, within it the Heart of Winter was guarded by bitter Sylvaneth, the Aerchhoi. 
- Forest of Gorch: Stretching for untold leagues and thick with unfeasible massive trees, it is a vast forest near the Coast of Tusks.
- Gargantua Ridge: a place where the Bloodwrought warband fought with the Arcanites over dominion of the Beastplains.
- Ghurland plains: A place that was cleared by Gorkamorka during his role of monster-hunter for the Great Alliance.[8a]
- The Gargant's Graveyard: A vast array of sun-bleached bones - many of these are the remains of thousands of gargants but there are also a substantial number of other skeletons from other races as well. Some of these ribcages and skulls are the size of duardin citadels. In the centre is the Big Skull from which the bones spread outwards like a grisly maze. 
- The Howling Labyrinth of Tzeentch: Legend is that the Daemoniac Conundrum enslaved thousands to build the Labyrinth atop the skull of Agorath known to the Orruks as the Big Skull.
- Ghyrria: a place once ruled by Drakatoa.[8b]
- Gnawing Sea: The plains of monstrous bone that surround the Gnawing Sea are saturated with savage magic that attracts mighty predators – and those who would bind them.
- Gouge Canyons: a place created by the battle between Gorkamorka and Sigmar.[8b]
- Hornteeth Mountains: A long chain of sharp-peaked volcanoes, covered in black ash and dividing the praries from the Darkdeep Ocean, very little grows in the area due to the volcanic activity.
- Izalend, the White City, is a port city surrounded and guarded by a magical wall of fire. 
- Jercho: A collection of city-states on the edge of the Sea of Bones, it survived the Age of Chaos intact and then in the next Age it was claimed for Sigmar by Hamilcar Bear-Eater

- The Growling Gates: A network of realmgates in the Beastfens, whose central gate once linked the Realm of Ghur to the Realm of Hysh.
- The Jaws: This ancient realmgate is simply the jawbone of some long-dead monstrosity, thrust into the earth and split open by the axe of Gorkamorka to give his Orruks a road to conquer new lands in the Realm of Shyish, yet this had given little sport and so the god had sealed it again in disgust. Following the Realmgate Wars it was reopened by Ahazian Kel
