Demiplane

From PathfinderWiki
The Reading Room of the Akashic Record, a finite demiplane with numerous special properties.

Demiplanes are generally small, finite planes, most of which are connected to either the Astral or Ethereal Planes. Most are created when reality is sufficiently warped that small pieces of its substrate fragment and fuse together, thereby creating a stable dimension.[1][2]

Types

Ethereal

Ethereal demiplanes spawn as a result of the tidal forces of the Positive and Negative Energy Planes, which also generate the ethereal mists. This mist sometimes forms localized concentrations or eddies which give birth to ethereal demiplanes.[1]

Astral

An astral demiplane is formed as a combined result of turbulence within the River of Souls, proximity to the Maelstrom, and the distant action of elemental fire. These three forces create powerful astral storms shaped like a hurricane that have a calm eye at their center. It is within these stable eyes that astral demiplanes are occasionally born.[1]

Created

Demiplanes can be formed by the workings of powerful magic, be it from an artifact, a powerful mortal spellcaster, or the will of a god. All that is required is for reality to be bent and twisted to the breaking point.[1]

Properties

Demiplanes are finite and measurable extradimensional spaces, differentiating them from planes, which are effectively standalone infinite universes. While planes are also often traversable via means of planar travel, demiplanes are sometimes subject to more restrictive access.[2]
