Isn't the Great Dark Beyond part of the material plane? It is just outer space, where worlds are situated.  Rolandius Wc3Knight.gif (talk - contr) 04:13, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Each planet of the Material Plane is its own plane, and even the Emerald Dream overlaps and is considered part of the Material Plane as well as I recall... material plane is one of the most imprecise DnD derived terms ever...Baggins (talk) 04:16, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
That is why I like the word "Mortal plane".  Rolandius Wc3Knight.gif (talk - contr) 04:25, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Which is just as vague, it means the exact same thing as Material Plane.Baggins (talk) 04:29, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

That is true, although I have seen that word used more often in the novels than material plane.  Rolandius Wc3Knight.gif (talk - contr) 04:31, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
The RPG has all the terms I listed as alternate descriptions (usually lower case) of the capitalized proper noun "Material Plane".Baggins (talk) 04:34, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Okay. Although I am not sure how planets can also be called planes.  Rolandius Wc3Knight.gif (talk - contr) 04:41, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Forget your earth knowledge of the word. Plane means something entirely different in Azeroth and the world of Warcraft. The definition is given in the article.Baggins (talk) 04:45, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
LOL Okay.  Rolandius Wc3Knight.gif (talk - contr) 04:52, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

demiplane

So there could be multiple demiplanes out there besides that one? Rolandius Paladin.gif (talk - contr) 07:30, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

the book said "a demiplane". In anycase demiplane is one of the D&D terms, sorta like the "multiverse"(not sure that term made it into warcraft) .
Well it does say you go through a portal in the Nether to get there. LOL Rolandius Paladin.gif (talk - contr) 07:40, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Non-Existent Planes

This section seems, to me, to be utterly pointless. The only purpose it serves is to point out that the planes that exist in D&D do not exist in Warcraft. While possibly noteworthy for anyone playing the RPG, it seems less than useless for the purposes of the page as a whole... Much like the halfling article from awhile back. -- DarkTZeratul (talk) 05:26, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Planes (World of Warcraft The Roleplaying Game)

How about moving the RPG section to it's own page Plane (World of Warcraft The Roleplaying Game) similar to Timeline (World of Warcraft The Roleplaying Game) and having a cleaner page for planes. And also maybe merging the pocket dimensions back into the Plane page as a section when there will be more room on the page. The "In RPG" section would be reduced to only mentioning that the RPG has a somewhat different cosmology and a link to that page. Mrforesttroll (talk) 16:36, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

That may be a good idea. Xporc (talk) 10:48, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
Why the full name? Why not just (RPG)? — Surafbrov T / P / C 23:39, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
Just as that exists on the Timeline RPG page no other reason. Mrforesttroll (talk) 01:32, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
Same thing with the shorter version (e.g. Stonehoof (RPG)) — Surafbrov T / P / C 02:03, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
Oh there are other Timeline pages for different RPG books so that's why that is long my mistake it should be Plane (RPG). Do you agree with such a move to a separate page? Mrforesttroll (talk) 02:10, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
Not against it, would definitely help with cleaning up the page. — Surafbrov T / P / C 12:08, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
Moved it. Now that this page is cleaner should I merge the pocket dimension page back to this page as a section or should it be it's own page? I'm for merging it. Mrforesttroll (talk) 20:27, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
I've got no strong opinion about it so whatever the rest prefer. --Ryon21 (talk) 21:13, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
