About the Near Planes[edit]

The near planes are those that are easier to get to. These are the core area where adventures take place. This is the land of history, where great events can change the world. Most of the near planes are on the gate system. Those planes that are not on the gate system are called "hidden", and you must follow the correct path to reach them.
