The spellcasters of the Testament setting had no plane shift spell, but the
priests of all the religions (except that of the god of Israel) could travel
to one other plane: that of the afterlife. When doorway to the underworld
is cast on the side of a mountain, it opens a tunnel leading into the
mountain’s interior; after four hours of journeying through the tunnel,
the caster (and anyone who accompanied him) arrives in the underworld
of his religion: Esagila, the Land of No Return, for Babylonians; Tuat,
with its paradises, hells, and the menace-filled 12 Hours of Night, for
Egyptians; and Eresh, the dry, sunless, barren realm where nothing
grew, for Canaanites. The opening created is only an entrance into the
underworld, the tunnel cannot be used to head back to the priest’s
worldhe’ll have to find some other exit if he intends to return.
