Hells Boiler Room Part 1

Boiler Room - the basement of torment that went on forever
This is another part of my hell travelogue which is set at a higher danger level than many of my tables here in accordance to my earlier episodes on hell. All praise the lords of hell.

Plague lands 1 and 2
Infernal lands 1 and 2
Underworld lands 1 and 2
Hellbog Lands 1 and 2

Currently thinking will be a ice hell and possibly a cave hell or a city hell city one could be an addendum to make any city in hell. A jungle of forest hell
Some point when hells finished can work on items like damned in each hell, currencies, food, all sorts of stuff we have in the wings...

Some of my projects are so old Im having to change some names of stuff...
Just to not be confused with someone els or their products

This hell is inspired by 80s horror films, heave metal album covers, DOOM, serial killer movies, bad dreams, and Buddhist hells. Modern ruins and shipwrecks also inspired this.

It also could work well with my red brick dungeon stuff because the geomorphs i did would work pretty well for this hell.

Hell's Boilerplate Lands
A endless sprawling complex of industrial workshops, sweatshops, basements, slaughter houses and ruins. Where devils torment damned on industrial scales. Where lost souls wander eternally avoiding tormentors. Where horrors find hidden lairs to tormented souls their own way. Where rooms or torture house devils boiling souls in blood and hundreds of other torments human poets only dream of. Bloodstained rust metal corridors connect chambers and marauding monsters murder and abuse any they find. Souls of chosen madmen killers are permitted to roam free to prey on escaped damned souls. Even devils bound by duty are wary of exploring or chasing a escaped damned soul. Demon bounty hunters and mercenaries are called to hunt escapees to deep in the abandoned complexes. 

The damned are brought here for mass slaughter to evolve them into larvae. Some are released with false hope of escape only to be stalked by demons and madmen and monsters forever. Most damned wear hospital like smocks. Some damned are missing limbs, organs and have unclean dressings from surgery. Some damned become ogres, orcs or kobolds and get to be workers or return to earth.

The impression is that it was a once organised industrial complex, the workshop of hell. But over aeons business has been pool, heaven and hell more work together than war and even demons can get working visas to do things devils dont want to. Older devils are too embarrassed to work here or mention it. While still many souls are processed and refined here, much is wasted and chaos seems to be rampant. Ogres and demons and madmen are main examples of chaos. Except ogres never tire or killing and tormenting while orc and kobolds start finding trouble like politics and organizing societies. Demon mercenaries and bounty hunters are used to track down trouble makers or escaped souls when devils too busy and duty bound to wander about taking risks.

Devils sent here are lowest sort or being punished for treason or corruption.
