Planar natives, multiverse explorers, and those touched by mysterious forces leaking through from the planes: these characters are shaped by backgrounds and experiences unlike those found in more conventional environs. From the Way of the Amethyst Fist monk, who channels power through a psionically resonant prosthetic, to a traveller character with a mysterious cosmic map imprinted on their skin, to a character with the Limbo Touched feat, who can change objects at will—characters with ties to the planes are just a bit different.
This book is brimming with new material and new choices to create and advance 5E characters shaped by contact from beyond, including:
- Six new character species. Play a lava elf, born from dimensional warfare, or a machinelike surk—who wasn’t born at all!
- 16 new subclasses, such as the Unearthly Gleaner sorcerer, the Gun Jack rogue, and the Oath of the Angelic Perfection paladin.
- The cosmic rambler, crossplane refugee, and reformed fiend backgrounds.
- 14 new feats, nearly 50 new spells, and dozens of new magic items from, or related to, the planes
