The city was built on a flat featureless plain underneath a perpetually gray sky.
According to those same cosmologies, the wall surrounding the city, known as the Wall of the Faithless, consisted of the souls of those judged as the Faithless by Kelemvor. They formed the bricks of the wall and were held in place by a supernatural greenish mold. The mold held the souls while their essence was slowly dissolved away to nothingness. Occasionally, raiding demons would tear souls from the wall and return with them to the Abyss. These captured souls were used to spawn new low-level demons to swell the demonic ranks or to feed their masters.
In the Great Wheel cosmology, the city existed in the Fugue plane as the location where the souls of the dead waited to be claimed by their respective deities, but the Wall of the Faithless and Kelemvor's realm were located in the City of the Dead, a distinct location in the Oinos layer of Hades.
