A Walk Through the Planes Index

Lady of Pain

When I first began this series, I had no idea how long it would run until I ran out of interest. Turns out that it’s a nice distraction during my day job, and at this point it’s been more than six months of more-or-less steady essays, with no end in sight. That being said, given the sheer number of these pieces and that I occasionally find myself stumbling upon older works I inadvertently (or, on occasion, intentionally) skipped means that keeping track of what’s been published has become a little bit of a mess.

Well, no longer. I’m going to try my best to keep this index up-to-date, organized chronologically by release rather than when I wrote about them for the sake of my OCD.
