Guy 1: In the Dungeons
& Dragons fantasy role-playing game, Arcadia
or more fully, the Peaceable Kingdoms of Arcadia
, is a lawful neutral/lawful good-aligned plane of existence. It is one of a number of alignment-based Outer Planes that form part of the standard Dungeons
& Dragons (D&D) cosmology, used in the Planescape, Greyhawk and some editions of the Forgotten Realms campaign settings.
is a peaceful harmony between law and good and is noted for its tranquility and strict discipline. Everything on Arcadia
has its specified
place and everything functions as intended. Trees naturally
form tight rows
snake across the perfectly
flat plains in complex mathematical routes. Large geometric cities are perfectly
laid out with efficient roads
and beautiful architecture.
The Orb of Day and Night is a huge sphere
that sits atop the tallest mountain
, one side is illuminated and the other
dark. The orb rotates at a constant speed so that exactly
half of the plane is in darkness while
half is illuminated. There is no dawn or dusk on Arcadia
, but a sudden sharp change
. The weather on Arcadia
is always pleasant and seasons are of exactly
equal length, which like the days, change
abruptly when it is time.

As with other outer planes, Arcadia is spatially infinite, consisting
of two infinite layers or sub-planes. It has normal gravity and normal time. Arcadia’s first
layer, Abellio, shares borders with the neighbouring planes of the Seven Mounting
Heavens of Celestia and the Clockwork Nirvana of Mechanus
; travel is possible between Arcadia and these
planes at certain locations. Travel between Arcadia's two layers is possible via numerous portals present on both layers, as well
other magical means such as spells.
layer, called Menausus was once part of Arcadia, but has since merged with Mechanus
when populations of lawful-aligned Formians
increased in numbers there, shifting
its alignment away
from good and toward law.
is a mostly flat layer, but does contain mountains and hills at various points. There are numerous large forests, lakes, streams and fields.
Clangeddin, the realm
of dwarf deity Clangeddin Silverbeard is located on Abellio
. It is a perfectly shaped conical mountain rising
over 30,000 ft. above the surrounding lands. The mountain itself
is full of expertly constructed dwarven halls
and galleries. Huge
forges are used in the construction of dwarven weapons here.
The Formian hive-city of Mandible is also
A number of godly realms
exist on Abellio
, including The Bastion of Law, realm
of Saint Cuthbert; the Anvil
of Creation, realm
of Reorx; Cherry Blossom, the realm
and Izanami; Marduk, the realm
of Marduk; and The Ministry of Rewards, realm
of Lu Hsing.citation needed
there are very few differences between Buxenus
and the first layer Abellio; similar pristine landscapes stretching on endlessly. This layer hosts a more militaristic feel, with large
numbers of Arcadian forces congregating in anticipation
for future battles with
the neighbouring plane of Mechanus.
The Harmonium, a particularly militant sect have
their headquarters in the city
. The Harmonium run training camps to indoctrinate 'borrowed' chaotic mortals in the ways of law and order.
