The Quasi-Elemental Plane of Minerals
The Quasi-Elemental Plane of Minerals is formed as a combination of the Positive Energy Plane and the Elemental Plane of Earth. The Quasiplane of Minerals is quite like the Elemental Plane of Earth, and that it is an infinite solid mass with occasional tunnels dug through it, and pockets of air. This quasiplane is filled with every precious and rare gem and metal, diamonds, silver, gold, platinum, mithral, it’s all there. Though the quasiplane won’t just let anyone or anything take its treasures.
As with the other planar junctures, the Quasiplane of Minerals has ‘border’ areas that touch neighboring planes, allowing certain conditions to ‘bleed through’ from one plane to another. Where Minerals meets Earth, both planes just meld right together. As the quasiplane moves towards the Positive Energy Plane, gemstones become even more prevalent, and glow like little stars. This area is called the Gemfield. There is the Misty Caves, where the plane borders Steam. The boundary between Minerals and Radiance is much like the Gemfield, but it’s called Brighthome instead. Then there is the Natural Forge. Most of the metals are here, and some are even in a molten state. This is where the quasiplane borders Magma. Sparklemire is the boundary between Minerals and Ooze. Sparklemire is a large underground sea of mud with crystals and sparkling gems.
