Take a look.


As much as I love the Great Wheel, this new campaign setting's cosmology looks pretty cool so far.

(Note: These are just my interpretations.)
I like how the Feywild and Shadowfell planes are, in a way, past and future copies of the Prime Material. The Feywild is almost a carbon copy of the Material plane before mankind got its hands on it and moved things around, cut away forest and built up cities. I can almost see this plane as a backup/restore plane if the Material ever needs a reboot. Wink The Shadowfell seems more like the inevitable future of all things manmade---settlements are dilapidated ghost towns as if humanity as well as natural life was exterminated... leaving nothing behind but foundations of ruined buildings that act almost as tombstones.

The Elemental Chaos looks like a Limbo redux... except they threw the Abyss into it. The Astral Sea is just a Astral Plane with most of the Outer Planes strewn about it.


Hopefully they're good about keeping core crunch and this fluff separate... or my musings on a Planescape campaign are going to have to stay 3.5.

Uh... maybe I'm not getting at all why you just did that... but... are you doing this because you need a login? Don't you have a login for the WotC boards? It's the same as that. I didn't have to pay anything.

Super-confused but impressed at the bear punching nonetheless,
Miche-ale

I think it's fuckin'BAM!!!!worthy to require a log-in just to read an article. This isn't the Times Select, which has, incidentally, reverted to free content after failing to make money.

So, yeah, anyway, planes. Does anyone care? Am I the only planar-lover?

Bah. I'm gonna run a 3.5/4.0 Planescape campaign and THEN you'll all see how awesome it is. Grr!

As a player and DM, I've always glossed over the cosmology except when absolutely necessary. It's hard enough learning about a nation/world. I'm not too keen on learning about a whole interdimensional universe. Unless it has Earth-43 Ambush Bug.

Worlds? Nations? Bah. It's as if you think the Prime Material Plane is the center of the multiverse! <mumble> <mumble>
