Latest Wizard’s Releases: Manual of the Planes

Manual of the Planes

Wizard’s latest release is the Manual of the Planes with a new array of planes debuting in 4th Edition the homes of gods, devils, demons, genies, fey and titans. There is a good introduction to the planes extract on the WotC site:

A plane’s type describes its basic nature and place in the cosmos. The term “plane” applies to many different places. Sigil, City of Doors, is a plane, even though it’s no more than a few dozen miles in extent. It drifts in the multiverse unconnected to any other physical reality. The Abyss is also a plane. It is many thousands of miles in extent, large enough to swallow planets, but it’s only a finite region of the Elemental Chaos. A traveler can walk (or more likely fall) into the Abyss from the surrounding Elemental Chaos, but a different set of physical and metaphysical laws apply in the Abyss than in the Elemental Chaos. In that sense, the Abyss is a plane separate from the surrounding Elemental Chaos.
