Asgard (3.5e Environment)
From D&D Wiki
The home of Ymirhart's gods, Asgard is an 19th Outer Plane. Like a lid, it fits over the rest of the Great Wheel, causing it to be coterminous with all outer planes except the Outlands, which are directly opposite of it. However, mortals are very rarely seen. Asgard generally appears as a lush green meadow with a few forests. Its skys are always clear and never stormy, and its waters always clear and bright. Farmlands, plowed by the gods of agriculture, provide the gods with their divine food and drink. Its roads are paved in flagstone, and from the meadows raise the great cities of the Gods. Asgard is inhabited by gods and their servants. The first layer of Asgard holds the city where lower-ranking gods make their home. Higher ranking gods may have their own personal layers.

 Plane Links
The ledges at Asgard's boundaries reach down and touch each outer plane. If someone on one of the outer planes wished to reach Asgard, they could ascend into the air until it is in reach. However, Asgard is so high up that it is almost impossible to reach, even with magically enhanced jumping or flight. Asgard does emit rainbow briges that connect with each outer plane and the Prime Material Plane. These provide much easier access, although these entrances are secluded. Bifrost is the bridge that touches the Prime Material Plane and is the most well-known. Portals cannot access Asgard, unless created by the gods.
 Plane Inhabitants
Asgard is inhabited invariably by gods and other immortals. Any mortals encountered on the plane are most definately not native to Asgard.
 Features of the Plane
Asgard has many layers, most pertaining to a specific god. No mortals know every layer of Asgard, and not even all gods are aware of the exact count. The most prominant layers are:
- The Great Citadel of Odin is located at the very centre of Asgard's top layer. It is here that the gods come to attend their divine council and discuss matters of the mortal realms. Odin's throne is located in the Citadel, where he can watch over all of Asgard.
- Yggdrasil is the Great Tree of Asgard, and extends down to its very bottom. Yggdrasil's trunk can be found on every layer as it winds downwards.
- Divinia, the city of the gods, encircles the Great Citadel on the top layer. Here, the gods that do not have a layer of their own reside.
- The castle Valhalla can be found on Asgard's fith layer. Here, souls of warriors that died in great service to the gods train for if Asgard must be defended.
- Khane's Mead Hall is on the eleventh layer. It is the home of the war god Khane, where he toasts mead with his servants and followers.
- The Interim is a divine office staffed by the gods. The Interim marks where mortals become gods. All ascensions are recorded in the Interim's logbook.
