The various planes of Eberron all travel within the Astral Plane. All the major planes of Eberron orbit Eberron, which sits at an intersection of the Astral Plane, the Ethereal Plane, and the Shadow Plane. The Astral Plane touches all the planes, and serves as a means to travel between those planes.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Astral Plane is a great silvery sea, sometimes describes as a starry sky behind the starry sky of the world. Travel throughout the plane is at the speed of thought. The planes float throughout the Astral Plane, and the Astral Plane serves as the conduit for summoners when they wish to summon extraplanar creatures. Unknown to most, the Astral Plane does indeed have a border, a boundary of utter darkness called the Outer Darkness. Some believe the Dark Six are trapped beyond the Outer Darkness. No mortal has traveled beyond the Astral Plane, though.
Inhabitants[edit | edit source]
- A race of beings called the Boumman live on the Astral Plane.
- Once they rebelled against the daelkyr, the githyanki and githzerai fled to the Astral Plane.
- House Orien has shown the ability to travel across the Astral Plane using astral beacons, 8-inch crystal spheres that augment their Mark of Passage to hone in on their locations with teleporting.
- The Ascendant Councilors of the Undying Court will frequently leave their bodies and travel the Astral Plane using astral projection.
