Planes of Existence

What swirling mass do we live in? Where does it begin and end, and what lies beyond? Dimensions and layers and pockets and spheres… so much narrative possibility.

Let’s face it… we’re all just tiny specks in the infinite scope of the universe(s) around us. As a roleplayer, writer, or artist that means we have nothing inhibiting our imagination regarding the kinds of worlds we can create with their twisted physics, chemistry, biology, spirituality, or philosophy. Take a look at the ideas on this page for stretching the logic of the world as we know it. Open a gate or teleport to a brand new world with its own set of rules! Enjoy!
