The Astral Plane, (The Celestial Sphere)

This plane contains millions of stars. It is filled with the melodious sounds of many bells and gongs of golden, bronze, and silver metal. The place is airless and heatless, but Gord, Gellor and Leda survive easily enough. Three Solars (one golden, one amber, and one pearlescent azure - representing the three good alignments), 12 Planetars, and eighty-four devas, all arrayed for battle come and demand the theorparts. When they refuse, this huge arch-deva, bigger than the solars, comes and says: you have passed the test, now let me show you on your way to the Empyreal Sphere.

The Upper Planes

The Seven Heavens (The Empyreal Sphere - The Exalted Place of Pure Color and Fire; Mt. Celestia for Planescape players)

The arch-deva is a native to this plane. This sphere gradually grows colorless. A wall of pale stuff is in the distance. A road winds through great onyxlike mountains. They glow grey and milky and grow paler until they become almost colorless at the top at a place which looks like a mountain pass. This is the entry point to the Prison of Tharizdun.

Lower planes:

General residents
a bugbear and goblin deity often sworn by, for example "Floggin Foogish".


is horrific and is the primary home of the cacodaemons.
residents of Pandemonium, Gehenna, and other lower planes. Many from Pandemonium act as Vuron's personal guard and are commanded by Talonclast. They are actually double agents for Nerull. They are slowly killed for treason. (ref. Greek for 'evil daemon, evil spirit' as opposed to agathodaemon, 'good spirit')


It is capable of resisting some magical items and wresting them from their owners. There are 6660 regions in the Abyss.
Pazuzeus: Level 1
There is a maelstrom above this level which is controlled by no one. The plane itself is a desolate dun with leprous ochre growths and livid gashes of terra cotta. In the distance (from Gord and Gellor's entry point) stand several tall, flat-topped hills. Nearby is a portal to Layer 303. Also in the bluffs are portals to levels 2 through 21. A few hundred lesser demons live there. These portals are disguised as Bottomless pits, toothed maws, caldrons of lava, a grinding millstone, etc.. A metallic sphincter is a gate to level 8.
Level 8
This layer is a frozen wasteland. There is an entrance on the Soulless Sounding here. It is reached by digging a hole in the frozen ground the size of a bier. Four feet below the surface is a coffin with a crystal lid and a rotting spinning corpse. This is the entrance.
Level 303
Is the site of Infestix's invasion in Dance of Demons.
a minor layer adjacent to the battlefield Vuron defends in Dance of the Demons. It is where the reinforcements come through.
The battlefield: (303?)
smogs rise over this plane to give the equivalent of night. It attaches to the Soulless Sounding.
The 333 layer of Abyss - Graz'zt's home plane; according to Dance of Demons it is layer 366. It used to be held by the Abat-dolor under Graz'zt, while he was Elazalag's consort. However, Iggwilv came to Mezzafgraduun and separated Graz'zt and four clans of Abat-dolor loyal to him from the rest of the Abat-dolor. Vuron is also held accountable by the Abat-dolor, and they don't care for Eclavdra.
The Jungles
house dinosaurs as well as shovel-toothed, wolverine- headed centipedes. They cover the thousands of miles from the Layer of the Hunt to the Central Plateau.
The Central Plateau
houses many demons and has little vegetation. Two-hundred miles inward lies The Royal Demesne.
The Royal Demesne
has a large amphitheater, it seems natural, it is made of a nacreous material. The ground here is opalescent, pearly. A park surrounds the amphitheater. It has ferns, flowers, and shrubs. The trees are dove-gray, translucent trunked with shiny black leaves. There is thick soot colored grasses. All vegetation is in shades of gray and black. The insects and birds are rainbow-hued. Lemon yellow and electric blue monkeys, bright colored deer and other animals. Demons feel free to molest the animals and vegetation. He has to restock the parks often. The sky is fire-opalescent. Graz'zt has captured twelve demonic beasts from the layer of the hunt for this menagerie. He had a brute, but it dies in Graz'zt's games.
The Grand Palace of Graz'zt
has many porticos and is gold bedecked. It is constructed of black marble and obsidian. It is reflective. It has a huge arch that leads to a central isle to the throne at the rear of the chamber. The throne is opaline, carved from a single stone by Graz'zt. There is a secluded chamber which is proofed against spying. It has a divan for Graz'zt and guests. The antechamber in the royal wing is guarded by guristhoi demons. The sanctum in his suite has huge doors made of hematite. The chamber floor is made of mirror polished jet. There is a table with seats and maps and papers. Graz'zt has a couch, this is where he plans his battles with his consuls. It is known as the Soul of Mezzafgraduun. From the garden one enters the audience hall which has a mirror bright obsidian dais and throne for Graz'zt. Vuron stands behind it. There are tall chairs for his demon lord allies.
Vuron's chambers
The entrance is guarded by two scurda. It has wizard locked doors. A secret word of passage will open the door to the inner cyst, which holds vital information and a holographic map of the Abyss over a concave floor. Graz'zt's 333 owned and allied territories glow opaline. Greater Mezafgraduun flows paler. Kostchtchie, Yeenoghu and Baphomet also glow. The 94 backwater layers controlled by Graz'zt are also revealed. The hologram can reveal troop positions all over the outer planes. It reveals secret movements with the use of the theorpart.
Greater Mezzafgraduun
the territory controlled by Graz'zt. There are 43 layers in it at the beginning of Come Endless Darkness. From 304 - 332 and 334 - 346.
The Cyanic Fens
These abysmal wetlands lie to the "south" of Mezzafgraduun on the outskirts of Graz'zt's realm. It is filled with vapors. Orcus, Iuz, and Iggwilv and the other demons advance through here. The other demons come in from the "north".
Ojukalazogadit - plane 366.
The plane is one sentient creature. It is rotten dun colored with veins of coagulated blood and cratered open sores here and there filled with with festering pus. Every once and a while huge pseudopods reach up or spurt stuff out which is then greedily eaten by itself. Forests of protuberances of bloody red and dripping green can shoot up. It makes one nauseous and insane. It emits all manner of wretched noises. It twitches. Pieces of it jump up and form semi-independent creatures, which wander around gibbering, until they are destroyed by Ojukalazogadit's other spontaneous appendages. (Think the AD&D version of the Cthulhu cycle's Shub-Niggurath from the first printing of Deities & Demigods only filling the entire plane.) It has sentient acidic volcanos. It allows armies to do battle upon it, and destroys those who harm it. It touches 12 other abyssal layers firmly, and often reaches several others. Plane 11 and Plane 502 are adjacent. It has a rotten orange atmosphere. It will also lash out near the ground if his from above by spells, for example Lightning Bolt. It can be bribed by a large blood sacrifice.
Iyondagur - layer 399.
It is attached to layers 398, 400, and 366 (Mezzafgraduun?). It is held by the Abat-dolor demons. It is not a great strata, but is considered to be a large wild layer. The entrance from the Soulless Sounding is in the middle of the great plaza of Elazalag's fortress's outer courtyard. The palace itself is in the center of the plane (if such a thing can be said). There are many frowning facades of hewn stone blocks hedging in this irregularly shaped area. Squads of Abat-dolor line the parapets on the walls of the square. Princess Elazalag is announced by iron rods pounding on wood and by deep horns that shake the stones. The fortress has a massive portcullis and drawbridge leading to the courtyard. It has just begun to be invaded in the middle of Dance of Demons.
Layer of the Hunt
This unnamed layer is full of demonic brutes and is adjacent to Mezzafgraduun. It is a cold windswept waste plane, filled with icy rock and scrub. The Brutes here will travel leagues to taste blood.
This layer is Zuggtmoy's home plane. It is a nightmare realm like a great underground cavern where fantastic and weird fungi sprout from noisome soil. It looks as if nothing clean had ever existed here. There is a grotto below the arrival point that serves as a sanctum for Zuggtmoy.
Baphomet's home plane.
Kostchtchie's home plane.
The Black Vortex
This is filled with motes of nauseous green, yellow, gray, violet, and other colors, this is one route to the Abyss.
The Soulless Sounding
This is essentially an express route through the Abyss. There is an entrance on the eighth plane. It is reached by digging a hole in the frozen ground the size of a bier. Four feet below the surface is a coffin with a crystal lid and a rotting spinning corpse. This is the entrance. Inside are all things and nothing. It is very gloomy and sad. It is full of lost loves and melancholy dreams. Distance is variably distorted. It connects with 600 layers of the Abyss including most of the middle ones. It does not reach Pazuzeus but does touch the battle plane. It is a mind twisting passage and only the very strong can tolerate it for very long. The portal leading to Iyondagur consists of iridescent striations like black opal and silver, hammered into six horseshoe-shaped arches. The gate closest to the Iyondagur gate leads to a cold windswept waste plane filled with icy rock and scrub. This unnamed layer is full of demonic brutes and is adjacent to Mezzafgraduun.
Demons (Tanar'ri for Planescape players) and residents of the Abyss
When demons fight demons, especially en masse, there is little use for magic and they just have mass physical combat.
The Six Monarchs of Demondom
Orcus, Demogorgon, Graz'zt, Marduk, Lolth, and Zuggtmoy.
This two headed, demon prince is a monarch of Demondum, who accepts no one as an equal. His gaze attacks appear as green beams from the eyes of one head, and as maroon beams from the eyes of the other head. He opposes and fights against Graz'zt. He sends vrocks and wasp demons (chasme?) to fight Graz'zt's nabassu, and other gross and bloated flying things. His personal guard consists of snake-fish, toad-crabs, and lizard-slugs. His army is one million strong, including Mandrillagon, Var-Az-Hloo and Abraxas. He sacrifices a large group of demons to Ojukalazogadit.

In Dance of Demons he allies with Iuz and alternates attacks Graz'zt on the opposite side with the aid of troops from Infestix. He leads Mandrilagon, a devil legion, a dreggal division, and various daemons and cacodaemons. Twenty Ahazu-demons serve as his officers and guard. He also has sixty battle-gongs. He is loaned a Theorpart by Infestix (the Initiator). He goes home when Gord slays Infestix. When most demons ally, he leads the water demons and takes Graz'zt's right. He owns the Venom Fountain. (ref. medieval demon mistakenly thought to belong to an ancient mythology. His name was a corruption of Demiourgos from Plato's Timaeus, which found its way into the works of Boccacchio, Spenser & Milton. see here). See also Monster Manual I

Demogorgon's lieutenant
This demon is a six legged lizard thing with human arms, a bat head and huge dull red eyes. It has keen sight.
Graz'zt is a mostly human appearing demon prince and a Monarch of Demondum. A renegade Abat-Dolor demon, his hair is blue-black and he has ebony skin. He has a charming, but fang-filled smile. His blade, Doomscreamer, weighs ten times a much as a long sword and it is twice as long. He also owns the artifact known as the Eye of Deception. He has several succubus, type V demon, and lamia consorts.

Judging from S4, The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth, Monster Manual II, and the 1983 World of Greyhawk boxed set, Graz'zt was captured by Iggwilv through her demonological practices around 460-470 CY, wresting him from the middle of a crucial battle. Either during his imprisonment or immediately following his accidental release he sired Iuz upon her. To what degree this union was consentual is unknown, but the battle that followed his release resulted in his being confined to his home plane for several decades, perhaps a century.

As of the beginning of Artifact of Evil he has made use of his new freedom and controls three layers of the Abyss. He has granted Iggwilv amnesty from any vendeta he might carry, so that she might aid Iuz; Yeenoghu allies with him. His agents, along with Iuz, seek the two remaining theorparts. By the end of Artifact of Evil his coalition controls 66 layers of the Abyss. They open a gate to Oerth. Hill, Mountain, and Frost Giants roam from the Howling Hills South and drive out the Hierarch's hobgoblins and orcs to the Felreev and the Steppes. He conquered Prince Ariax.

At the beginning of Sea of Death, he has extended his personal realm to eight planes. By the time of his meeting with Iuz's faction and Iggwilv, he controls twelve layers. He receives the Unbinder when it is recovered.

Towards the beginning of Come Endless Darkness, 66 greater and lesser demon lords bow to him and through them he controls 333 planes. His personal territory is called Greater Mezafgraduun. Baphomet has joined him and they have retaken the cataboligne demon home plane. He goes "north" with Pavlag, Nergal, Ogrijek, and Kostctchie to meet the attackers on Zuggtmoy's side. He uses thousands of nabassu scouts. He and Nergal know of Leda's alignment, but keep her because of Vuron. He can use the Eye of Deception or the Theorpart to grow to 300 feet tall, and to alter reality (making no flight possible from the battle on Ojukalzogadit). He uses the two artifacts to turn the tide of battle for him. He learns that whom he thought was Eclavdra is Leda after she helps Gord fight Infestix. He has 30,000 elite troops who surround Gord, Gellor and Leda from the front and two flanks. He strides to the front. He leads the united force of demons verses Gord. They total 50 noble demons, 300 petty lords, and millions of minor demons. They gather in Iyondagur where Entropy meets them. When Tharizdun takes over, he makes his stand with Elazalag and the rest of the Abat-dolor on Ojukatazogadit.

This demon lord is a Monarch of Demondum and the King of the Fire Demons. He owns the Fire Fan. He opposes Graz'zt. He continues to fight Graz'zt in Come Endless Darkness and comes into the battlefield to the left of Iuz. In Dance of Demons he joins the Iuz-Demogorgon anti-Graz'zt coalition. He walks out of "the Meeting". He takes Graz'zt's right when all the demons ally. When Tharizdun takes over, he retreats to Ojukatazogadit with Graz'zt. See also Deities & Demigods/Legends & Lore (1st ed., Babylonian Mythos), and Marduk's entry in the Assyro-Babylonian Mythology FAQ.
Orcus is a great demon prince and a Monarch of Deomndum. He continues to fight Graz'zt in Come Endless Darkness and comes in to the right of Iuz on the battlefield. In Dance of Demons he joins the Iuz-Demogorgon anti-Graz'zt coalition, but then decides to strike out on his own. When most ally he takes the air demons and marches on Graz'zt's right. When Tharizdun takes over, he retreats to Ojukatazogadit with Graz'zt. (ref. Roman god of the underworld/death, another name for Pluto; the Roman name for Tartaros) See also Monster Manual and H4, Throne of Bloodstone.
Queen Zuggtmoy
One of the six Monarchs of Demondum, she is the Queen of Thallphytia and the Mistress of Mycorj. She can appear as a darkly beautiful woman. She travels over the prime plane in a toadstool shaped cloud. T1-4, The Temple of Elemental Evil reveals her as a prime orchestrater behind events there. During her work and confinement there, she became involved with Iuz - both as coconspirator and paramour. She was separated from him during her confinement. Iuz plans to take over Oerth and rule with her on her plane in the Abyss. She was freed through the work of Iggwilv, who manipulated Mordenkainen. (Although in EGG's campaign, it was Robilar alone who freed her.) She joins Iuz's faction in the quest for the final theorpart. She is gated in to Oerth at the Hool battle by Leda. She sends in a tide of poisonous fungi. She attacks Graz'zt on the battlefield from the side opposite Iuz. With Szhublox, her forces total just under 250,000. She is allied with Iuz and Demogorgon in Dance of Demons. See also T1-4, Temple of Elemental Evil.
He is a male demon who is subservient to Zuggtmoy. He has a shadowed form with flames. He can be summoned by means of a bronze idol given to Obmi by Zuggtmoy. He can summon Type VI's who in turn summon type II's. He is twelve feet tall and has horns.

She rides a spike encrusted adamantine chariot that is driven by three hippokeres, that are harnessed with iron chain. She is elegantly armored in dark chainmail with an adamantine helm and uses a morning star. When most of the demons unite against Gord, she marches to the left of Graz'zt bearing the Eye of Deception that Gord gave her. When Tharizdun takes over, she retreats to Ojukatazogadit with Graz'zt and the rest of the Abat-dolor.

Nergal, the Justicier - "Prince of Unlife"
Although Nergal is a demon lord, he is also a sycophant and serves as consul to Graz'zt. He is dark and dour, a small stony demon man. He is crooked, fearful, and hunched with a sharp curved chest and misshapen shoulders. He has slab-like cheeks, a fanged mouth and a hideous smile. He is given to outbursts and plottings.

He is evil and very intelligent, considered the most intellegent demon. He is strong in reading minds, being able to read the surface of Gord's despite Gord's amulet of protection from ESP. He is very loyal to Graz'zt, showing humility only to him. He is very sincere for a demon and this humility seems real. Graz'zt uses him to point out flaws in his plans. He comes up with the quick-clone idea for Eclavdra. He had altered Leda during her creation so that she had no alignment. Her time with Gord made her Neutral Good. He arrives at the Hool battle, banishing all of the outer planer participants of that battle. He pits Gord verses Obmi and Leda verses Eclavdra. He heals the escaped slaves after Gord and Leda are victorious. He lets Gord chose who the Theorpart goes to. His contingency is that Leda must accompany the Theorpart in the guise of Eclavdra. Gord gives in, seeing no alternative.

He is the Master of The Roving Hordes, controling two-thirds of Graz'zt's forces. He tollerates no sycophants. A master strategist, he leads forces through Tartarus against Hades's gates. He goes to the Cyanic Fens with Leda as Eclavdra, Yeenoghu, and twelve other minor demon lords to meet Iuz and other attackers.

In Dance of Demons, he waits for battle on a flat plane, controlling a force of all the "Type" demons save Type 5, also including dretch and rutterkin. He has previously sacked Mandrilagon's palace and kidnapped Demogorgon's harem. He enters personal combat with Demogorgon while carrying his crystal spear. He can use the Theorpart to heal and to promote demons. He sends Leda as a messenger to Graz'zt, hoping to destroy her influence. He is slain by Leda.

The Abat-dolor are an independent race of demons of which Graz'zt is a member. They are ebon-hued, six-fingered, seven to eight feet tall humanoids. They are more human and more civilized than most demons; yet they are reputed to be the most vicious of all demons. They are broken into the nine clans of pain, each of which has their own lord, with Elazalag serving as their overlord. They are independent of all other demon lords. The soldiers wear polished red bronze plate armor. They are armed with swords, spears, and light crossbows. Some have swivel-mounted antimatter guns which are used as a last resort and only by the order of Elazalag. Mezzafgraduun used to be held by the Abat-dolor under Graz'zt, while he was Elazalag's consort. However, Iggwilv came to Mezzafgraduun and separated Graz'zt and four clans of Abat-dolor loyal to him from the rest of the Abat-dolor. Vuron is also held accountable by the Abat-dolor, and they don't care for Eclavdra.

Is in an amphitheater made of six concentric circles. In the lowest circle sits Iuz, with Iggwilv to his right, and Zuggtmoy to his left. On the other side sits Orcus, Marduk, Baphomet, Cagrino, and Abraxas. In the next row are Var-Az-hloo, Azazael, Bulumuz, Socoth-Benothas, Szhublox, Lugush, and 12 others. The next two rows up contain lesser demon lords and the last two rows contain greater demons including the chief of the Yatish demons. Iggwilv addresses the crowd about Gord, Graz'zt, Infestix, and Demogorgon. Twenty-seven demons want to search for Gord, Leda, and Gellor. The rest, save a handful, want to assault Graz'zt. The twenty-seven go along.

HADES, "The Black Void", (The Gray Waste for Planescape players)

Infestix's Palace
Infestix convenes his court on the third gloom of Hades and can summon, with some regularity, lords of Hades, Gehenna and Tartarus to appear there. His court includes a dais where he will stand, and places for those attending and visiting lords to stand in a semi-circle about it, placed by planar alignment. It is squalid and decaying. From the dais can be accessed an inner sanctum through some sort of teleport mechanism. It is a circular, exitless, room suspended in nothingness. When the dais teleports only a bubbling pool of filth remains. He has many attendants, including "The Diseased Ones", oinodaemon types. He has a minor audience chamber with a chair which is across from many locales. He spies on Gravestone's stair maze and other locales. This chamber is adjacent to his throne room and has chairs for at least himself and the eight oinodaemons.
Daemons (Yugoloths for Planescape players) and residents of Hades
The Diseased Ones - the eight Oinodaemons
Anthraxus, Bubonous, Cholerix, Typhus, Dipterius, Brucilousu, Pneumonis, and Rheumatus. They are lesser versions of Infestix, chief among them, Anthraxus, is second only to Infestix in all of Hades. They are sent to aid Demogorgon in his battle with Vuron. Two are slain. (see Monster Manual II p. 30)
the greatest Oinodaemon after the Demogorgon-Vuron battle.
Infestix is both the true name and title of Nerull, his avatar on Oerth. He is known as the King of Death, the King of Extinction. He favors a form with a hollow sounding, sepulchral, worm-ridden, voice which emanates from a lipless, yellow-slime dripping, mouth with a grey, worm-like tongue. His face is leering and he has bony hands.

He can, through his finger, cast a putrescent green ray, which, upon striking its victim causes their flesh to bubble and their body to melt. He is not shy about using this technique on those who have failed him. He likes to geas those who have insulted him with lethal disease effects. He can cause instant rot in the living, this kills by the touch. He can regenerate lost limbs. He is conceited, plotting, and smug. He is master of daemons and ruler of Hades. He has many attendants, including "the diseased ones", oinodaemon types. He uses dreggal scouts and has the messy habit of killing his messengers.

He sends part of his essence with Sckculintig to spy on her dealings. He is the primary advocate for the return of Tharizdun. He comes to the battle on Ojukalazogadit with concealed aid by theorpart. He observed the contest between Gord's party and Gravestone. When Entropy makes his move in the beginning of Dance of the Demons, even he is in trouble. He gives aid to Iuz and Demogorgon to topple Graz'zt. He loans Demogorgon the theorpart (the Initiator), but he has built in a harmonic retrieval device. Once Vuron is lured into personal combat with Demogorgon, he sends in the eight oinodaemons and a daemon horde. Gord and Gellor confuse him with the Banner of Basiliv. His material form is slain by Gord, banishing him to Hades, and loosing him the Initiator. He lost his hand to Gord, but he can regenerate it.

Infestix's avatar on Oerth can be summoned by the Hierarches to aid in battles. He is their master and rides a winged behemoth from Hades named Putriptoq. They radiate fear. He wants to retrieve the second Theorpart in order to bring about the return of Tharizdun. (See Dragon #71 pp. 54-55, or WoGGuide p. 72, WoGGlossography p. 44)

She is a night hag, the coven mistress, an emissary of Hades and minion of Nerull. He places part of his essence in her to spy.
night hag next in line for coven mistress.
Poxpanus (Incabulos?)
"The Lord of All Pox". He takes a human form and has a rotting and holow voice. His arms are putrid and he can spread highly virulent diseases by touch. He, through ritual, can magically send disease to distant victims. He can ward himself against ESP, scrying, and divinatory actions. He is a vassal to Infestix and he appears to be of a kin to the Oinodaemon. He is proud of his abilities and haughty towards those he considers beneath him, a group which includes all mortals. Here his avatar aids Greyhawk's priest of Nerull, Colvetis Pol as part of a greater plan to release Tharizdun. After Reachan died, he returned to Hades to recover in a state of madness.
This is Poxpanus's spawn and familiar. He aids his master in magical searchings and is motivated by a lust for killing, and being as close as possible to his master, to the point of wanting to rejoin Poxpanus. He is killed by wards around Gord.

a daemon lord, once one of the "Diseased Ones"
