What’s beyond the ring? Does anyone bother going out there? Why would you?
The answer to that question was one of the cooler things regarding the Outlands. It was only mentioned a few times, but beyond the ring of the Gatetowns it gets strange. No matter how far out you go, it’s always a relatively short period of time to get back to the Gatetowns, and the landscape is generally fluid and unmappable. Beyond the Gatetowns are lost and forgotten places, manifest ideas and philosophies that don’t fit anywhere else on the planes. That’s just awesome.
