Which outer plane would you like to spend your afterlife in?

    Assuming you were in the D&D cosmology (2nd or 3rd ed.), what Outer Plane describes the ideal afterlife for you?

    Lest you think this thread by its very nature leans towards the Upper Planes, my bet says that if Shura were still here, the Abyss would be his choice. :p

    My choice, Arborea. Mount Celestia seems a little too ... trumpety and holier-than-thou to me. Elysium is a little too ... animal-ish to me. I certainly don't fancy morphing into a Guardinal. The Neutral planes don't appeal to me either, and certainly not the Lower Planes.

    Arborea, strong nature aspect, and relatively care free. Could certainly take a much needed rest. ;)

    Elysium for me -- I don't want to deal with evil people and it seems to me there wouldn't be very many there.

    [​IMG] The Beastlands for me I think, I just like the idea of a truly wild place still in arms reach.

    Definitely Arborea/Arvandar. If I have to spend the rest of my life somewhere, I would prefer to be in the realm of passion with hot elf babes. Just saying...

    The Outlands. That way I can spend the rest of my (after)life studying gate-towns and perhaps visiting some of the other planes.

    Elysium, I suppose. In the realms of Lathander, Chauntea and Pelor. I could visit the Beastlands (traveling with magical beasts) and Bytopia (having fun with gnomes).
    I like Arborea, but I don't fancy elves that much, surely not for an entire afterlife. It shouldn't get more lawful than Bytopia, so goody-2-shoes Celestia is not an option. The lower planes are basically hell and horror. I don't like hell and horror.

    The layer of Solania on Mount Celestia for me. Perfect for an aspiring monk to internalize the ideals of justice and virtue while contemplating the folly of mortals :D
