The physical location of the Dark Kingdom (formerly ruled by Queen Beryl and allied to the Obsidian Pact) is an area of caverns, half-ruined Golden Kingdom buildings, and interconnected (when travelers are lucky) shards of subspace pockets linked to Earth at a place called D-Point near the North Pole. Before the events of March 2016, it was populated primarily by youma, along with Dark Kingdom adherents like Beryl's apprentice Melanite and the Shitennou who served as Beryl's generals. Metallia's defeat, and the efforts of Prism Keeper Yellow and a Nameless Hero, did significant damage to the cavern complex directly and freed the captive calcified souls which comprised much of the weirder-looking caverns' actual physical mass. Since that time, the fortress and 'natural' caverns are believed to have been largely abandoned.
