Purgatory

Purgatory is also known as the Spirit World. It makes up the bulk of the incorporeal realm.


Customs and Physics

Purgatory is the natural realm of spirits, and directly overlays all of the corporeal realm. Spirits who are tied to a specific location tend to reside in the corresponding location in the Spirit World, and drift between the two worlds. The Spirit World always resembles the area it overlays, but emotions, beliefs, and memories affect it - areas where murders have occurred in the material world, for instance, are dark and stained in the spirit world. While time does pass normally in the spirit world, it has little effect on anything.


Getting To And From

Any incorporeal being can wander Purgatory. Corporeal beings must astral project to travel there.

Earth

The Spirit World completely overlays Earth, as if it is a second layer. Astral projection is the only method of crossing from Earth to Purgatory.

Heaven

The Pearly Gates connect Heaven to Purgatory. These gates are heavily guarded by angels, however, and only those permitted may cross through.

Hell

The River Styx is the border between Hell and Purgatory. These gates are guarded by hellhounds (and worse), however, and only those permitted may cross through easily.

Otherworld

The Spirit World completely overlays the Otherworld, as if it is a second layer. Astral projection is the only method of crossing from the Otherworld to Purgatory.
