the Abyss

The Abyss is the name for the collective planes of Chaotic Evil. Six hundred and sixty six planes have been categorized by the Fraternity of Order and this count has lasted for several centuries. Some believe that there are only six hundred and sixty six planes of Chaotic Evil, since the number has some significance as a number of evil in many cultures across the planes. Of course, the fact that the count has stood for such a long time may have fed some of that significance. Some rumors and theories exist of planes that do not fit into the current count, but others say that these are misidentifications of other planes. Partisans of both sides exist in the Guvners and discussions on the issue continue to this day.
