War's of the South
Dal Quor the Region of Dreams is a plane that humanoids visit when they dream. The plane is the home of the Quori, psychic symbionts with intentions to conquer Eberron. Dal Quor was irrevocably torn from its rotation in the Age of Giants in order to stop the Quori invasion. Since then the only way to reach Dal Quor from the Material Plane is through the psychic projection of dreaming.
The plane is ringed with dreamscapes — small pockets of psuedo-reality where people’s dreams play out. The plane has subjective directional gravity, is highly morphic and has flowing time (10 minutes on Dal Quor is equivalent to 1 minute on the Material Plane). Dal Quor is a highly morphic plane, and can be manipulated by either dreamers or the Quori, though the Quori find that manipulation quite easy compared to visitors.
Magnificent domed cities called up from the formless void of dreamstuff spread across the inside of the ring of dreamscapes, allowing the quori who live there easy access to their food supply: the psychic energy of dreaming mortals. Beyond the cities of the quori, a roiling boil of dream-born landscapes melt, burn, grow, and dissolve without any rhyme or reason.
The Quori claim the “center” of Dal Quor as theirs, where they rule supreme. However, most dreamers never reach the realm of the Dal Quor, and inhabit the fringes of the Realm of Dreams. While there, they may be left alone, or they may be the subject of manipulation from inhabitants of Dal Quor. Under normal circumstances, creatures in Dal Quor cannot harm dreamers; however, it is possible for a dreamers’ “dream self” to harm quori. Thus, the Quori prefer to attack using tricks and manipulation.2
*The major inhabitants of Dal Quor are the quori, the living embodiment of dreams and nightmares. There are numerous species of quori known, including the Dream Master Quori, Du’lora Quori, the Hashalaq Quori, the Kalaraq Quori, Tsoreva Quori, and the Tsucora Quori.
*Eidolons live along the fringes of Dal Quor, and prey on people’s nightmares. Two types of eidolons have been identified: idyllic eidolons and nightmare eidolons.
*Finally, there are creatures that are the manifestations of the collective unconscious of the inhabitants of Eberron. These drifters include hobs and spellshadows.
4th Edition Inhabitants
In the 4th edition Eberron Campaign Guide there is no mentioning of more than one species of Quori, however a small faction of Quori who disagreed with the idea of invading Eberron became the Kalashtar after escaping Dal Quor. There is also no references of Eidolons or Drifters.
Since its severing from Eberron 40,000 years ago, there are no manifest zones to Dal Quor on Eberron anymore.
Effects on the Material Plane
When last coterminous 40,000 years ago, Dal Quor allowed the invasion of the Quori to Eberron. Since then, Dal Quor has not been coterminous.
After the Quori invasion, Dal Quor is always remote in relation to the Material Plane. The only way to reach Dal Quor from the Material Plane is through the psychic projection of dreaming, and the quori have been forced to find new ways to work their will on the Material Plane.
40,000 years ago, the Quori invaded Eberron. Led by the Cul’sir giant tribe, the giants of Xen’drik, using the knowledge of the dragons and an eldritch machine called the Moon Breaker, severed the ties between Eberron and Dal Quor. Since then, Dal Quor has remained remote.
