Well of Worlds
The Well of Worlds is a site of powerful planar magic, built by Chanhiir in the lost age of their race and open only to those of githyanki blood. It is a planar mote existing in no world — fueled by the energy of the Astral Sea but not set within it. The Well of Worlds is the center of the portal network that is the lifeblood of the githyanki empire. It is the site through which elite githyanki strike teams travel the planes, including the force charged with seizing the Fane of Chanhiir. It is a place that touches all other places — all planes of existence, all sites in those planes. From the Well of Worlds, the githyanki have access to anywhere in all of creation.
The Well of Worlds is a planar nexus at the center of the githyanki’s extensive network of portals across the Astral Sea, the world, and the planes. The Well is the site of the Sovereign Gate — an ancient and powerful teleportation circle that serves as a transit point for elite githyanki strike teams and scouts at the vanguard of the ongoing invasion. More importantly, the Well of Worlds is the center of a bold arcane experiment being undertaken on the orders of the githyanki Emperor Zetch’r’r — an experiment whose success will spell doom for the free peoples of the world.
The Well of Worlds and the Sovereign Gate are located in a planar nonspace, and they are protected by magical wards that prevent any but full-blooded githyanki and their most trusted servants from accessing them. These wards make the Well of Worlds unassailable — or so the githyanki think.
