If you made a demiplane in real life, what would it be like?


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion


Let's say you cast Create Demiplane at 10th level, and critically succeed. Mine would be like a HUGE mansion (about 4000 feet long and half as wide, according to the rules), but would also have a garden-like "outside" area. It would also have the good alignment trait and low gravity.

It would be nice to sleep in, and have low lighting.

Mine would be exactly like my bedroom but for every 10 minutes on the prime material plane, 8 hours pass in my bed plane so I could get some sleep for once.

Sadly it does not seem that altered time is a thing that you can do with 2E's Create Demiplane. It's probably for the best, since the timeless trait on a demiplane shattered the concepts of encounter balance and resource management into teeny tiny pieces.

My plane would be some combination of house and warren, like a hobbit hole on a ridiculous scale, along with indoor gardens that could grow any manner of required food conveniently next to kitchens. (I'd considered an outside plan but the twenty foot tall ceiling would make that uncanny valley.)

I wonder if there is an ISP with interplanar service packages.

I suppose mine would be an automated "Minecraft farm." A massive garden growing a never ending supply of fresh fruits, vegetables, and spices, which is then automatically harvested and replanted by self-repairing factory machines.

There would also be a small fresh water spring and a field of self-cleaning solar panels collecting power from a "sun" that always shines bright light directly upon them. The power generated would be directed both to my real life home, and to a small cozy cabin and storage shed in the middle of it all. The realm would be guarded by a golem.

The machines, solar panels, and golem wouldn't look like traditional machines, but would fit the aesthetic of the realm.

Endless food, water, power, and a place of comfort with which to safely rest and store your most prized possessions.

Think about it. You're off the grid. No more reliance on the government. No more need to buy expensive groceries or pay endless bills. You're fully self-sustaining; effectively retired and able to do whatever you want with the money you earn, which is all now disposable income.

Not only would this benefit me and my family, but also all of our our descendents.


I really hope it gets a Mage's Mansion style door, because I don't know Plane Shift. XD

I'd probably want to take advantage of some of the impossible things. Unbounded would let you have an infinite hall of mirrors in all directions. (Makes me really curious about heat dissipation in demiplanes...) Subjective gravity is something that you could never experience normally. The combination of the two would be nauseating and probably dangerous, but wow. I'd be pretty tempted to set that up for science or tourism or something like that? Escher-esque resort, maybe. Can I get bountious trait with non-Earth life? Whenever I get these hypotheticals, I never want to pass up the "chance" to have something impossible.

I do not want to grapple with the nightmare of bringing alignment rules into the real world, though.


If it were possible to make sections of a demiplane have subjective gravity I'd be all over that. I wouldn't want it for the whole plane though; I know me and how clumsy I am. There would almost definitely be an accident.
