Stygia surrounds a large bay formed by the river Styx. Known as the Heavenly Port, it is where sailors and the drowned go in death, and according to some traditions, pirates as well. As a port, it is the only realm within Baator where nonhuman deities and souls are tolerated.

Structure

Built around the bay formed by the river Styx, the realm is a large port city bordered along the coast by the mountains of Dis to the north and the hills of Malbolge to the south. Inland it borders the City of Gold, Minauros, and Cania, the source of the Styx.

Ships of all sizes and shapes dot the black waters of the bay, arriving and departing the realms of Baator. Taverns, fisheries, warehouses, and drydocks fill the city with very few permanent residences or industries unrelated to the waters of the bay. Prince Levistus rules the realm from a giant iceberg floating in the harbor.
