Risia the Plain of Ice is a plane that is layer upon layer of snow and ice with a constant blizzard raining down new layers of sleet snow and ice from a dark grey-clouded sky.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Risia is a plane comprised primarily of ice. The very atmosphere freezes the lungs and steals away the breath. The average temperature on Risia is 0°F. On any given day, there is a 50% chance of extreme weather in the form of snow, sleet, hail, or a blizzard.[1]

Dragons, giants, and treasures are thought to be forever preserved within the ice.[2]

Effects on the Material Plane[edit | edit source]

Coterminous[edit | edit source]

When Risia is coterminous to Eberron, regions of intense cold, like the Frostfell, Everice, and northern Khorvaire, are subject to intense cold. These areas also allow for transport between Eberron and Risia to occur, as well as bolster cold-related spells and powers. Risia is coterminous to the Material Plane during the midwinter month of Zarantyr, once every five years.[1]

Remote[edit | edit source]

When Risia is remote from the Material Plane, cold becomes somewhat less intense. Conditions of extreme cold are reduced in severity, and cold-based spells are harder to cast. Risia is remote from the Material Plane during the midsummer month of Lharvion, once every five years, two and a half years after each coterminous phase.[1]
