People of the Eternal: Races of the Astral Plane

Suggested Price $1.00


In the space beyond this world, beyond the forests of elves and the delves of dwarves and the shires of the halflings, lies a dimension of dream and thought, where one can move simply by thinking, and where a desire is all it takes to pass through to heaven or hell. There are people that call this vast, silvery void home, and this document starts the telling of their story.

Within these pages, you will find the vast armadas of the githyanki, bristling with armaments and arrogance, and you will meet their rebels and their refugees who may become your fast friends.

You will also find the eternal devattas, celestial beings that reincarnate after each death, who retain faint memories of each of their thousands of past lives. Today, they continue their quests at your side.

Among the astral ships and port towns in the gray void you will meet and share a drink with the boisterous hadozee, who will join you on a journey beyond the edge of infinity, singing shanties the whole way.

If you are lucky, you will stumble on the quiet monasteries of the isolated buomman, the "singing monks of the Astral Sea," who fear the imperfect world outside their structures...and who seek to perfect it by raising dead gods.

You may also find the crystalline redoubts of the shardminds, entities of distilled knowledge, who only exist because of a tear in reality that they hope to repair by melding with others of their kind. Perhaps you can help them complete their seal...or perhaps you can stop them from negating all that makes them individuals in pursuit of this divine quest.

Whatever allies you choose for this journey, whether you delve into dungeons deep within the earth, travel the Sword Coast and beyond, or plumb the infinite gray eternity just beyond the reach of most mortal minds, travel safe, and try not to go mad...

-- Jacob

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
