This article might have further canon details available on.
What was Duromak is now one of the Dead Worlds, and is orbited by moons that are slowly breaking apart. Its surface is slightly less inhospitable than the rest of the Negative Energy Plane. Scars from the magic that took place just before its death are visible on Duromak's surface, and sometimes erupt in zones of wild magic.
Duromak is home to ancient constructs, an entire ecosystem of void-ravaged creatures, and swarms of undead. Intelligent undead who predated its transposition into the Negative Energy Plane remember no memories of what caused the event. Except for a few who adapted to the Negative Energy Plane and carved out refuges on Duromak's moons, most of the invading devils and qlippoth have been transformed into darvakkas, who are prey to even more powerful creatures. Sceaduinar patrols, for the most part, ignore Duromak.
Prospective tomb robbers willing to brave the Negative Energy Plane might find an entire planet's wealth in Duromak, but most fail to survive the swarms of undead and escape with their loot. Its greatest mystery lies in a desecrated temple to Pharasma, the largest temple on the planet, which is littered with corpses not reanimated by the Negative Energy Plane (suggesting that their souls were stolen or consumed when Duromak was still on the Material Plane), and whose main altar is etched with the following sentence written in Aklo:
