Save For Half episode # 21: "Manual of the Planes by TSR"

What do you do with that 20th level character in AD&D? Start adventuring in the various planes of existence, naturally! Your four halflings take a dive into 1987’s Manual of the Planes by Jeff Grubb and the TSR Bullpen. Soaring vistas, deep Abysses (Abyssi?), and Quasi-Elementals abound in this episode of Save for Half!

No Modrons were harmed in the making of this show, because Nirvana has a perfect count.

Crud, just realized I never replied to this one, sorry.

GREAT episode !

I had the book back in the day. I never liked playing to a level where my character could hop around the planes, but over the years I have used it as an idea mine like you all mentioned it is good for.

Yeah, I'm currently in a situation where some of my Victorious players are moving through dimensions and the random tables to generate realities are turning out to be great springboards for ideas!

Which makes it far more useful than at the time of its original publication. :lol:
