Dolurrh - the Realm of the Dead

Nature: Outer Plane

Mutability: Timeless
Gravity: Heavy gravity
Impeded magic: All spells are impeded

Entrapping: A visitor to Dolurrh experiences increasing apathy and despair while there. Colors become grayer and less vivid, sounds duller, and all experiences tainted with ennui. At the conclusion of every day (of subjective time) spent in Dolurrh, any non-native must make a Will saving throw (DC 15 + nr of consecutive days in Dolurrh).

Failure: The individual has fallen entirely under the control of the plane, becoming an incorporeal shade, an outsider native of the plane. Trapped travelers can't leave the plane of their own volition & have no desire to do so. Memories of any previous life fade into nothingness, and it takes a wish or a miracle spell to return them.



A place of hopelessness, eternal despair, and consuming apathy, Dolurrh is the realm where mortal souls go after death. It is not a reward. It is not a punishment. It just is.



Coterminous: Slippage can sometimes occur between the Material Plane and the Realm of the Dead. Ghosts become common on Eberron because it is as easy for spirits to remain in the world of the living as it is for them to pass to Dolurrh. Spells to bring back the dead work normally, but run the risk of calling back more spirits than the one desired.

Dolurrh is coterminous for a period of 1 year every century, precisely 50 years after each period of being remote.

Remote: Spells that bring back the dead do not function, and it is impossible to reach Dolurrh by means of plane shift. Only by journeying to Dolurrh (using astral projection, gate, or a permanent portal to the plane), finding the soul of the deceased, and bringing it back to the Material Plane can a deceased character be returned to life during this period. Once the soul is back on the Material Plane, no further magic is required to restore the dead to life. Both nalfeshnees and maruts frown on having souls retrieved in this manner, however.

It's remote for a period of 1 year every century, precisely 50 years after each coterminous phase.
