(This is unfinished...)
This snow white plane sweeps upward toward a high peak. Stone buildings dot the base, and the natives live in fear of the monster above. It is always cold, and the snow never ends. At the top resides a woman in a beautiful white gown holding a bouquet of black roses. She is by turns sad, angry, and delirious. They say Hell hath no fury like her...

Physical Traits

Gravity
In the Domain of the Woman Scorned, all gravity is subjective to the queen herself. The Queen is always at the apex of her plane. Wherever she is, gravity acts as if she were atop a shallow concave cone (http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/18500/18596/conconecntrs_18596.htm), sweeping out 10 miles in every direction, before flattening out into eternity. The natives refer to this effect as the Bridal Gown, because the ground sweeps away from her as if it were her gown. There are several consequences to this effect. First, natives always know when the queen is near, because the world slopes toward her. Second, when the queen moves, everything in a one mile radius reacts as if an Earthquake spell had been cast. (structures in the Domain are built very sturdily, or do not last long) NOTE: although gravity is subjective to her, the plane appears flat, which will disorient newcomers...


Time
Time on the plane is erratic. It is not possible to predict how long time will pass in the travelerís plane of origin while in this plane.

Shape and size
This plane stretches out infinitely in all directions. It is always twilight on the plane, and snow falls constantly from above, although there is no obvious source for the snow, and it never accumulates more than a few feet.

Morphic Traits
This plane is mildly Divinely Morphic. The Woman Scorned is unable to bend the plane to her will completely, but she is able to restore the plane to its original state.

Alignment, Elemental, and Energy Alignments
As a level of the Abyss, the plane is strongly aligned towards chaos and evil. Water and Earth are slightly dominant on this plane, such that Fire and Air Spells subtract 2 from Caster level when determining effects, and Water and Earth spells have a caster level +3. Ice spells act as though they were Empowered.

Inhabitants:
The Scorn Maidens: Women who die seeking vengeance are offered a deal by the Woman Scorned. They may serve her for eternity in exchange for the vengeance they seek.
