Within the etheral darkness towers the Great Hall of Panes. Built in the uttermost depths of time, by the immortal hands of Amadan Mor, the Alfar deity and trickster, the Hall of Panes is a matrix of dimensions. The Hall's depth and height defy imagination as its gently sloping ramp plunges into the great infinite reaches and spirals into darkness. Along its entire reach are shimmering lights, close, yet distant. These are the Panes, gateways to worlds uncountable.
