There may come a point when you have explored the entire world, or someone has done it for you. You crave to see new horizons, to travel to places other can only dream about and to experience wonders and dangers that are delightful and dangerous, sometimes both at the same time.

You may be a powerful spell caster seeing how far you can stretch your powers or a new god-like being bored with this universe and wanting to see what you can. You may even be a scientist, exploring the multiverse and the realms beyond.

Whatever your reasons, the Plane Maker is here to help you come up with the details about various planes, from both a magical and technological point of view and somewhere in between.

Inside Plane Maker, you find sections and tables that cover…


  • Base Plane – What is the plane based on; The prime plane, an elemental, astral or something else?
  • Created by – Who, or what, created this plane
  • Age/Age Apparent – Is this realm as old as it seems to be?
  • Ending – What is the ultimate fate of this place?
  • Purpose – Why was it created or what is it currently being used for?

Size and Shape

  • Size – Just how big is this plane?
  • Shape – If this place had a shape, this table would help you describe it
  • Edge – If you can get to the edge, what will you find?

Getting There

  • Entry method – What do you need to get to this plane
  • “Location” – In relation to other planes, where is this one?

Rules of reality

  • Visitors – Do the rules of this reality work the same for outsiders?
  • Differences – What are the differences between home and here?


  • Some weird and wonderful features that by rights should not work

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
