The World Axis
- Parent: History
In this view of the cosmos, the Material Plane and its echoes stand between two opposing realms. The Astral Plane (or Astral Sea) floats above them, holding any number of divine domains (the Outer Planes). Below the Material Plane is the Elemental Chaos, a single, undifferentiated elemental plane where all the elements clash together. At the bottom of the Elemental Chaos is the Abyss, like a hole torn in the fabric of the cosmos.
The World Axis, the original arrangement of the Arch, was built before the very gods and primordials. Only the most ancient of sages know of the existence of Ao, the overgod.
