The Celestial Stairway, also known as the Celestial Staircase or the Infinite Staircase,[1] was a network of pathways linking the Realms with the planes.[1][2]

From various locations, a stairway led to a nexus, which led to the homes of all the gods. The network was used by gods to traverse from the Realms to their home planes.[2]

The individual stairways, invisible to ordinary people, could only be seen properly by gods or by very powerful mortals. When made visible to others, they appeared to constantly change shape, such as a long wooden spiral staircase, a marble ladder, a pathway of amber and pearl, or stranger forms.[2][3]

The root or base of the Celestial Stairway was located in Selûne's palace of Argentil in the Gates of the Moon.[1]

HistoryEdit

During the Time of Troubles, the god Torm guarded the Stairway and prevented Waukeen and Lliira from using it to return to the Outlands from Shadowdale. Torm, obviously, was not tempted by Waukeen's bribes.[6]
