The Plane of Quasi-Elemental Lightning
|Cosmology / Powers and Deities / Dramatis Personae /
Rules and Mechanics / Character Creation / Equipment
A sky filled with black clouds that flash with internal fires, the air tingling with ozone, and the touch of electricity prickling your hairs. Bolts leaping from cloud to cloud and the sky ringing with the laughter of lightning elementals.
This plane is a scary place to fly through – a cutter can dodge a jagged bolt only to steer himself into the path of a tumbling ball of lightning. An eerie glow dances over everybody and everything that comes into the plane with an unnerving, electrical brilliance.
The Quasielemental Plane of Lightning has the following traits.
Subjective directional gravity
Electricity-dominant: Any metal object (or creature) of size Tiny or greater attracts one bolt of lightning per minute. The DM chooses the exact round on which the lightning strikes. Each bolt deals 10d8 points of electricity damage (Fort save DC 15 halves) to the object and its wielder, if any.
No elemental or energy traits: Some regions have the minor positive-dominant trait.
Enhanced magic: Spells and spell-like abilities that use, manipulate, or create air, electricity, or positive energy (including spells of the Air domain) are both empowered and enlarged.
Impeded magic: Spells and spell-like abilities that use or create earth or negative energy (including spells of the Earth domains and spells that summon creatures with the earth or negative subtype) are impeded.
Breathing: The air is crisp, pure, and plentiful. It has a strong smell of ozone.
Movement: In addition to the movement modes enabled by the subjective directional gravity trait, natural flight is also possible in Lightning.
Vision: The constant bolts of electricity crisscrossing the sky-scope provide a strong source of natural illumination, although the effective range of vision is occasionally hampered by storm clouds. Also, an electrical halo quickly forms around any material object or creature. This effect renders invisibility useless.
Creatures: blue dragon, lightning mephit, lightning quasielemental, mrebb, shocker, tempest, uun.
