Planes of Existence
There are five major planes of existence:
- Peregrine (the material plane)
- The Ethereal Plane
- The Plane of Shadow
- The Astral Plane
- The Divine Plane
The Ethereal Plane and the Plane of Shadow both occupy alternate versions of the same space that Peregrine occupies.
The Astral Plane does not overlap with the first three, but surrounds them and stretches off to the infinite.
The Divine Plane is intrinsically entwined through all of the first four and has no bounds. The Divine Plane also contains sub-planes controlled by specific deities.
Sometimes non-material planes will “leak” into the material plane and cause areas to become tainted. This can have dramatically different effects depending on which plane is “leaking” but the results are always bad.
