The Elemental Planes are composed of the universal building blocks of existence - earth, air, water, and fire. There is so much more to these planes of existence than just their dominant trait, and each holds a wealth of treasure, danger, and excitement just waiting to be discovered. And, for the unwary, death, which the Plane of Fire carries in abundance.
But it’s not all dangers. For travellers who can find their way to this place great treasures and mysteries abound. The fabled City of Brass, home to the greedy efreet, offers shelter within its bazaars and marketplaces from the constant dangers of the land. However, foolish travellers are just as likely to end up with a knife in their back from some scheming merchant in the city’s streets as they are to burn to death in the scorching heat of the wilderness.
Elemental monsters live and die in the scorched wilderness of the Plane of Fire, the most common of which are the elementals themselves. These living columns of flame are simple animals of the plane with low intelligence, though some of the larger ones do exhibit greater semblances of thought that propels them further towards sentient beings.
At the top of the elemental chain are the Elemental Lords of Fire. Massive, powerful, and ancient, there are only a handful of known lords but they each command legions and move with deliberate purpose and thought. Imix is the most well-known, largely for the cults that have spread across the multiverse worshipping the primal power of destruction, but the others are just as formidable.
Portals to the Plane
Portals to the Elemental Plane of Fire can exist spontaneously in the hottest areas of the Material Plane, with volcanic eruptions, massive wildfire, and even some of the greatest forges being the most common sources. Making the Elemental Plane of Fire a particularly difficult Plane to travel to.
There are more stable portals that lead to the few civilised areas in the Plane of Fire. These are usually policed and guarded by the efreet as the portals are how powerful efreeti merchants and lords come to the Material Plane for treasures, trade, or slaves. The efreeti are far from welcoming to those who stumble upon the planar portals they control. These portals are found within only the hottest places upon the Prime Material Plane, like massive volcanoes.
Powers of the Plane
The Firebringer, Lord of Flame - Primordial of the Elemental Plane of Fire
are entities of raw power that are believed to embody the very planes that exist upon, their powers are said to rival even that of deities. The Primordials
are said to be the first entities born of their planes, ageless in nature and bottomless in power. The Firebringer is said to dwell at the bottom of the Sea of Fire causing the phenomenon. There is no doubt that the Firebringer is the most powerful entity upon the Plane.
Elemental Lords of Fire
The Elemental Lords of Fire are the princes and princesses of the elementals, owing allegiance to none but themselves and working towards their own ends. These immense beings are comprised of the elemental fire that makes up their plane.
Grand Sultan of the Efreet
In his Charcoal Palace within the bustling City of Brass, the lord and master of all efreet sits. His titles are long, and include Grand Sultan of All the Efreet, Lord of Flame, the Potentate Incandescent, the Tempering and Eternal Flame of Truth, the Most Puissant of Hunters, Marshall of the Order of the Fiery Heart, the Smouldering Dictator, and the Crimson Firebrand. Currently the efreeti Marrake al-Sidan al-Hariq ben Lazan stands as the Grand Sultan, though there are challengers among his court that would see him deposed.
King of the Azer
Though he holds no true castle or home, the King of the Azer is regarded as the highest authority among the azers of the Plane of Fire and beyond. He is immeasurably old, and for an azer quite immense, standing just shy of fire giant size. He holds a handful of castles in the Fountains of Creation as his own personal lands, but rarely can he be found there. Instead, he travels the length and breadth of the volcanic mountain chain, staying with azer lords for weeks at a time.
Denizens of Fire
The Elemental Plane of Fire is home to all manner of creatures, including many from the Material Plane. Among the most populous of the denizens of the Elemental Plane of Fire are the fire elementals, the efreeti, salamanders, and azer all of which are natives to the Plane. Creatures originally from the Prime Material Plane are also common, Genasi
, and giants being the most populous.
