PlacesEdit

UnderworldEdit

Some sources say that the Greek variation of the Underworld is located across Oceanus, while others say it is deep underground. Hades and the Underworld can be interchangeable when referring to the land of the dead.

There are three main parts of the underworld:

  • The Asphodel Fields
  • Tartarus
  • Elysium

The Elysian Fields were for the good and heroic souls where they would be forever happy. Tartarus was where the evil and treacherous souls were sent to live out eternity in horrible punishment. The Asphodel Meadows are for people who simply lived and did nothing amazing, but nothing bad enough to make them go to Tartarus.

Five Rivers flow through the underworld:

  • Acheron: Woe
  • Cocytus: Wailing
  • Lethe: Forgetfulness
  • Pyriphlegethon: Fire
  • Styx: Hate

The palace of Hades is described as being "very full" and "many-gated". Not much else is known.
