The Plane of Air is an elemental plane of the Inner Sphere, which in metaphysical terms is the closest to the Material Plane. It is a realm of unending skies, towering clouds and fierce storms.[1]


The elemental plane of air is a nearly unimaginably large expanse of open skies, filled with churning air current, drifting clouds, and towering thunderheads. Near the borders of the Plane of Water, tremendous storms of rain and snow lash massive globules of water hanging suspended like floating oceans.[2] Solid matter is rare in this realm, much of it consisting of ice, magically solidified clouds or conjured rock.[3]

One of the strangest occurrences of solid matter on the Elemental Plane of Air are the metal spheres. Hundreds or thousands of feet in diameter, these obviously ancient bronze or iron spheres were left ages ago by their unknown creators. They have been there so long, in fact, that numerous peoples from the Material Plane have colonized them, building entire communities there. Covered in unknown symbols or runes, the spheres are obviously hollow, yet no one has found a way of opening one. They are strenuously avoided by the native djinni, a not-altogether illogical attitude, since a number of the communities living on the spheres have mysteriously disappeared without a trace in recent years.[2]


The Plane of Air is the least populated of the four elemental planes, with only a small fraction of the inhabitants of its neighbors. Some believe that this is due to the extreme scarcity of solid land, which takes the form of large chunks of ice or magically created earth or rock. It is nevertheless home to a race of genies known as the djinni who have built enormous floating cities, air mephits, air elementals, and an eternally feuding population of silver and white dragons.[2]
