Charnelhome is the name of the Abyssal realm of the demon lord Shax.[1][2]


The realm is a vast, city-sized house raised above a huge bog filled with vicious, carnivorous plants. Within the house, every room is either guarded by a monster or filled with a trap. Many of Shax's prisoners are tormented by being placed in the house while Shax watches their attempts at escape; this helps him to improve his methods of killing. Sometimes Shax himself will disguise himself as a fellow victim to sadistically feel the fear of his prisoner's at close hand.[1][2]


In addition to Shax's many prisoners, thoxel demons are commonly found within Charnelhome. Many fights break out amongst the thoxels and other servants of Shax, including babaus[3] and chokers, with all his servants desperately trying to prove that they are Shax's best servants.[4]
