so it takes half a year to max in size? and do you have to keep casting 8 hrs a day during that? cast time is listed as 1 week.. does it continue to grow on its own to the max?

I believe that you have answered your own question. Casting time goes in the casting time slot. Spell descriptions, such as the behavior of the spell, goes in spell description.--Dmilewski 16:08, 27 October 2009 (MDT)

Can i ask a question? I know the rules say I have to bring in life myself, but does anyone have any idea how I could bring in life in large ammounts for a cheap cost? Im planning on (if possible) trying to create a large demiplane then some how close it off from the rest of the world, and live in my own personel world, but I would need someway to make it self preserving in terms of food water,and life. BTW, if I can decide the general features, then can I create an island surrounded by water or make ponds? Or does water need to be brought in 2?-- 14:06, 28 February 2011 (MST)

It says it can create water so that should be fine. I would also allow my players to create food with this spell. In my opinion the only reason you can't create life is because you would need to create an animating force (A.K.A. a soul).--Milo High-Hill 06:09, 16 June 2011 (MDT)

You could, however, design an epic-level spell with the rules given in the Epic Level Handbook that allows you to create your own lifeforms. I have thought of this setup many times before, and it would be extremely interesting to see how both you and your character would handle it. Basically, what you are trying to achieve here is creating your own plane and then creating your own reality within it. You, like many others who learn this spell, are trying to become God. First, you cast this spell (or convince your DM to allow you to change certain aspects of it, such as not requiring an entire week and XP to enlarge the size of it) and wait for the demiplane to maximize. Then you (after inventing these spells with the rules in Epic Level Handbook) cast an epic-level spell (ELS) to create sentient life in this dimension. Plant and animal life would be simple, because you could just cast Polymorph Any Object on whatever species you want in your realm and transform them into minute versions of themselves. Then cast a second ELS to create Fine-sized humans. The reason that you should create them rather than shrink them is because it would be difficult to convince people to be shrunken down and praise you as a god. You can either discover a way to make yourself immortal/unable to be aged, or use yet another ELS that is designed to increase your life expectancy considerably. You could also alter the plane to function as a timeless plane, as noted in the DMG, but only for ACTUAL humanoids (such as yourself), not for any creations. As a high-level spellcaster, you will, for all intents and purposes, be a god. So by creating a world in which everything is roughly 1/16 your size, strength, etc., you are a deity by comparison. Finally, the nice thing about Plane Shift is that it requires a specific focus; a forked metal rod. As you are the only possessor of such a kind, no one will intrude upon your realm.

Not to burst your bubble, but Epic spells are already given for creating life forms. -- 02:33, 27 June 2012 (MDT)


The Epic Level Handbook says that this is also a sorcerer/wizard spell. Is this correct? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

It does, and is correct by the WotC's standards. Unfortunately it's not Open Game Content, so we can't publish it on this article. --SgtLion (talk) 14:26, 2 December 2013 (MST)

Also, the XP cost given here is different than the psionic version's. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

As a rule of thumb, if a supplement handbook gives a new description of a spell or power, it overrules the default SRD entry for it. Official WotC publications shouldn't have conflicting entries, but other supplements might do. --SgtLion (talk) 12:39, 3 December 2013 (MST)
