The Realm of Torment, also called the Nightmare Realm, lies in the Mists and is connected to the Underworld via the Bone Pits. It has become a place where individuals of twisted evil or corruption are banished to spend eternity in torment (hence the name). The various areas that make up the Realm of Torment are filled with aspects of the darker side of reality. The realm has been cut off from mortal access until Nightfall.

The Realm of Torment is where the fallen god Abaddon was imprisoned by the Five Gods of Tyria to avoid spreading his influence across the world. Imprisoned with him are his worshipers including the Margonites, former humans turned into demons by Abaddon, and demons of torment. As punishment for their evil deeds and corruption by Abaddon, the Lich Lord and Shiro Tagachi were also sent here.

Though originally meant as a prison for Abaddon and other corrupted souls, the Realm has become overrun by the god's influence. Though he remains trapped at its heart, his minions have overwhelmed the Forgotten wardens. As his madness and touch became more potent, souls of the innocent were also sent to this realm to prevent his power from spreading throughout the Mists. As Abaddon works towards Nightfall, the Realm of Torment and the world of the living draw ever closer until parts of the two begin to intermingle as the fabric of reality weakens.
