The Ring of the Heavens

After their victory over the primordials in ancient times, the gods decided to end the threat for good. In concert, they forged a great ring, a containment for the remaining and free-willed primordials, a containment for the Elemental Chaos.

On this ring, 16 "outer" planes were arranged  in perfect symmetry, corresponding to the alignment of its inhabitants (lawful, chaotic, good, evil, and differentiations between). The Outands, a 17th, neutral plane capped the trapped Elemental Chaos and hid it from the sight of the gods.

A while ago I was emailed a copy of a conversion for Planescape to Mage: the Ascension. At the time I had no idea who the author was, so it took quite awhile for me to track down Mr. James O'Rance. I recently got in touch with Mr. O'Rance and he graciously gave us permission to host his work.

Which is to say, a lot of the folks around here have been looking at the Planes in 4th edition, and the Planes in Paizo's Pathfinder setting and wondering just where their own Planar adventures would fit best.
