From Bestiary of the Hypogriph


Ziana, also known as Heaven, is an outer plane where the souls of dead good mortals reside in a state of eternal bliss. It is metaphysically mirrored by the plane of Irkalla.

Description[edit | edit source]

Ziana is a great collection of realms intertwilled by holy, godly energies which all connect to one another, allowing easy transportation for its inhabitants. The powerful demigods known as the archangels hold sway over entire regions of the realm and use their divinity to change it into something that fits their role, leading individual regions to widely differ in characteristics.

Inhabitants[edit | edit source]

Mortal souls with an good stance in life inhabit Ziana in death, where they exist in idealized versions of themselves and enjoy eternal bliss in the realm. Most congregate to the realm of a deity in order to live among like-minded individuals, while others enjoy the freedom to explore the nigh infinite plane and its many mysteries on their own volition.

The primary race of outsiders in Ziana are the angels, who are born from good mortals who have ascended into beings of pure good by the deities of the realm. They are dedicated to the defense of the Firmament and the establishment of peace and order across the cosmos.

The Blessed Wyrms are the True Wyrms native to Ziana.
