The Outpost Wiki

The Plane of Ashes is a secondary plane of existence that is accessible only by using the Asterkinj. The plane itself was once beautiful and inhabited by the ancient species of Kahvi. Their Masters depleted the planes resources and searched for another, and the desolate leftovers of the world earned in the name "plane of ashes" by those who followed.

Many years later, the Lu-Qiri and Blackbloods were imprisoned in the plane to cease a war between them and the humans. It became a place of great pain and anguish. There are currently no known inhabitants in the plane following the war between Blackbloods and Blackfist, coupled with the extraction efforts by Talon, Wren, and Zed.

Overview

Time moves differently in the plane of ashes. There’s no sun to measure days and no moon to measure seasons. This causes the prisoners to age at a significantly slower rate than those on the Earthly plane. The Lu-Qiri that were summoned to the Earthly plane wouldn't return unless it was commanded to do so forcibly by a Blackblood without fear, hesitation, or self-doubt.

History

The Kahvi

Many years ago, the Plane of Ashes was a beautiful world which was one of the many homes to the species called Kahvi. They lived beneath the oppressive rule of the Masters, and watched as the Masters depleted the world until it was nothing but ash and dirt. The world was uninhabitable to their race, so they abandoned the plane to join the Green World.

Blackblood Imprisonment

Many years after the Kahvi left the Plane, the history of it being beautiful slowly disappeared. Eventually, a new species of people called the Blackbloods were at war with another species, the humans. The Blackfist, a sub-clan of the Blackbloods, made a plan that their entire war party, Blackbloods, Blackfist, and Lu-Qiri, would go through the portal and wait in the Plane of Ashes. A member of Talon’s ancestral tribe was supposed to sneak behind enemy lines and reopen the portal. The waiting members would then make a mass surprise behind their walls. Talon’s ancestral tribe made a pact with the humans to leave the Blackbloods in the plane of ashes and keep them imprisoned to ensure peace between the rivals.

When the Blackbloods first arrived in the Plane of Ashes they were confronted with such harsh environments and new creatures that the rival tribes were forced to work together to survive. One of the creatures hunting them were "fireworms". Zed described them as giant red snakes a thousand hands long with teeth as large as human bodies. Their hides are so thick that swords and spears were useless. The Black Fist tribe found a way to kill them by shooting bolts down the creatures’ throats. Thus, turning their worst enemy into their greatest food supply. They were soon faced with another issue - shelter. Storms of fire rained down upon them and injured many. They eventually made homes in cooled lava tubes that protected them from the thick ash and other dangers.

Aftermath and Present Day

According to Smith, the Blackblood ancestors lived in fear that the power to open the portal would be used for destructions so they took great pains to hide any information regarding it. All Blackbloods have the power to control the Lu-Qiri, but only one at any time can open the passageway to the Lu-Qiri's world. That power is handed down from father to son, and mother to daughter. Talon realized that the power to open the portal, later know as Asterkinj, is what her mother passed onto her moments before her death.

The portal to the plane of ashes has been opened several times, each time by a Blackblood who possessed the Asterkinj. The first was by Talon's mother to allow her husband Sai-vek Redwan to travel through the plane with the Meld Box and Terakinj. She opened it again during the slaughter of their village. She was unable to finish summoning the portal and collapsed. However, she passed the Asterkinj onto her daughter, Talon. When Talon was shot at by The Wolf, the portal opened briefly enoughf or Baphnoro to manifest his arm and stop the arrow.

Years later, Talon accidentally set Baphnoro free into the Green World. She was able to send him back a few days later after he slaughtered several people. The only time she didn't open the portal herself was when an unknown person or demon opened the portal and warned her that the Dragman was coming.

When Talon summoned the Lu-Qiri Ekkundi, it came forth but brought a Blackblood named Rebb with it. Ekkundi was loyal to only Rebb, who's goal is to obtain the Asterkinj from Talon and free her people and all the Lu-Qiri from the plane of ashes. Rebb tried to free another Lu-Qiri but Talon managed to close the portal before it could escape.

Talon accidentally traveled to the Plane of Ashes upon almost being killed by a rouge Garret Spears. She was approached by three blackbloods and she attempted to fight them off when the Asterkinj began causing her physical pain. Another portal opened and she fled the plane.

A few months later, Talon returned to the Plane with Zed and Wren in the hopes of finding her father. They did find her father, and they brought him over to the Realm, only to be killed by passing on his Terakinj to Queen Rosmund. A few days after Queen Falista Relman reign of the Outpost, she makes a deal with the remaining blackblood leaders (Talon, Zed, and Wren) in exchange for loyalty the Blackbloods will be given their own lands, protection and their freedom from the Plane of Ashes. However, upon arriving to the campsite, the trio discover the corpses of most of their society. Only a handful of warriors, and children made it out of the Plane of Ashes.
