Blackmoor is generally located in the northwestern portion of the Flanaess. It is a small and inhospitable realm lying almost completely within the boundaries of the northern reaches of the Cold Marshes. The Burneal Forest forms a western boundary of sorts, while the Land of Black Ice does the same to the north.

- The Kingdom is Blackmoor, named for its ruler King Blackmoor.
- The kingdom is split into eight different regons, each ruler by a Lord.
- Of the eight kingdoms, one is exclusely Elven. It is called Alfheim.
