The Ethereal Plane
The Ethereal Plane is the Plane spirits land in if they escape one of the Afterlife, almost all spirits here are fugitive almost always from the Realm of Wanders, Pit of Emptiness or the Pit of Despairs. Mechanically it acts as the R
The Underworld is a unique plan were demons live. While rumors of it being literally underground are not true it is shaped very much like a cave in many regards. The Demon King is said to reside though they are no creditable reports of him being sighted.

The Afterlife Planes
The Afterlife Planes are unique is that the only way to visit them is to die (or to use truenaming, but if you ever attempt that the Devils and Angels guarding the afterlife planes are likely to attack you quickly calling their superiors, and unless you are extremely high in epic levels you do not want to mess with high ranking angels and devils), and anyone resurrected with magic immediately forgets there experience in the afterlife, as such no one knows for sure what exactly goes on in it, all they have to rely on are the gods words (which are generally consistent about what goes on in each one though not exactly in how to get into each one)
The Gate (Vermana's Plane)
The Gate is where those who die get judged for which afterlife they belong to, at point in time this was done all by Vermana herself but as the population of the world increased it simply became impossible for her to do it herself, so now when someone dies they are pleas there case case to an Angel (if they are likely to go a good or neutral afterlife) or a Devil (if they are likely to go to a bad afterlife). This acts like a one on one discussion, pleading your case, in truly ambiguous cases where the Angel or Devil is stuck between two afterlives or the exact sentencing, they may choose to call Vermana and have her make the final call.
Hero's Slumber is the best afterlife. The general consensus about it is that you have your own pocket dimension in which you can warp reality to your own desire basically living your wildest fantasy. Those in the Hero's Slumber are also allowed to visit the Righteous's Rest and the Realm of Wanderers for visiting deceased friends or family members.
Righteous's Rest is the second best afterlife. The general consensus about it is that is similar to the Real of Wanderers in that you are a spirit that gets to wanderer around and interact with the other spirits, but with the added benefit of being able to watch the mortal plane. You are also allowed visited the Realm of Wanderers for visiting deceased friends or family members.
Realm of Wanderers
Realm of Wanderers is the neutral afterlife. The general consensus about it is that it's just an empty plane filled with nothing but spirits wandering around conversing with each other. It often described as boring
Pit of Emptiness
Pit of Emptiness is the second worst afterlife. The general consensus about is that everyone in it has their own personal featureless room, where is literially nothing in it and no one to interact with.
Pit of Despair
Pit of Despair is the worst afterlife. The general consensus about it is that is that those in it receive nothing but constant varying torture.
The God's Domain
The God's Domain unlike most other Domains ARE meant for others to visit.
