Lots and lots of layers.

I built out the base in Illustrator so it had crisp, clear lines. Then I imported that into GIMP, where I built several layers, including the base colours and textures. I built each of the colours of the planes on a separate layer, because I used a different blending for most of them. Built the base of the Earth by using Google Maps as a reference. And once the orrery was complete, I built the paper layer by blending together several paper texture packs and drawing in wrinkles with the paint tool, and then using another paintbrush pack (from ObsidianDawn.com ) to make the magic circles. Then I imported that image back into Illustrator to add the text.

Thanks!

Looks like you covered everything humans ever thought of, except maybe space aliens.

That's because this only covers the Earth's multiverse. Other planets with sapient life out there would have created their own astral plane, and developed their own pillars and planar makeup derived from their earliest cultures. All these little astral orbs, floating in the endless, hostile infinity of the Outside. 

I also like the concept of the five pillars, especially the Keystone and the World Soul. 

That's one of the parts I'm most proud of. The pillars really did become the foundation of my system, even though originally they were more of an afterthought.

I guess I need to check out the webcomic now...

Thanks, hope you enjoy it :D

Apologies! I don't check dA as much as I once did here. 

I did at one point have a primer for this world, but that nigh on a decade ago, and it was lost somewhere in the shuffle. 

I did, however, incorporate some of the world into my current D&D setting, and I do have a setting guide for it here: www.dropbox.com/s/0x6ssaaecie9…
