Behind the Scenes[]

The cities originally had different names, but Matt changed them during the development of Kingdoms & Warfare to represent more cultures' ideas of hell. Sheol and Gehennom are both from Jewish tradtion. Styx and Acheron are Greek. Naraka is from religions such as Sikhism, Hinduism and Jainism. Kasyrgan is from Mongolian shamanism. Dis is from Dante's Inferno.

After originally talking about some of the cities on Twitch and Twitter, Matt later changed his mind and made Acheron the City of Fear rather than the city of whispers, to better reflect Anna's ideas about Asmodeus.
