The Forces That Define The Cosmos
The study of magic is an arduous one, and in a world and setting where magic defines the laws of physics instead of violating them, it can be a rewarding and character building experience. The planeswalker Cindrus, mere months before the events of the The City of Fog campaign, ascertained a rough idea of the probable superstructure of Thraknor’s cosmology. Paramount in his discovery of this structure was the idea of “building blocks” or “modularity”, as his mentor called it; simply put, that the structure of each planes was such that a word in the pure language of magic that resonated with the idea of “good” or “evil” or “bird”, would resonate and mean the same thing on each plane. Every plane was built of the same “stuff”, just different kinds of it.
Further, each aligned plane was either the home of a pair of gods, or a “corridor” or sorts that led thereto. In particular, the positive energy plane is connected to the astral plane (as are most planes), but is also the exclusive connection to the lawful good, neutral good, and chaotic good Upper Planes – and vice versa for the negative energy plane and the aligned Lower Planes.
More depth will be gone into as The Genesis Codex is more fully explored.
