 +"SO WHY DO THEY CALL IT THE SILVER VOID?
 +MUST MEAN THERE'​S NOTHIN'​ THERE...RIGHT?​
 +-SOME CLUELESS SOD
 +
 +Most berks think the Astral Plane'​s an empty place, serving as nothing but a cosmic highway connecting all the other places in the multiverse. Canny planewalkers know differently,​ though. Here are just a few of the "​secrets"​ of the Silver Void that this book explains:
 +  * It is the backdrop of the multiverse, where phenomena such as space and time are so vastly different from "​normal"​ that only a true blood knows his way around.
 +  * When he's on the Astral Plane, a basher moves, fights, and acts solely with his mind.
 +  * It is the closest thing the multiverse has to a "plane of magic,"​ where sorcery and spells are not only more powerful, but are palpable, tangible objects.
 +  * The primary inhabitants are the infamous githyanki, an ancient race of wizards and warriors who know the dark of many secrets forbidden to others.
 +  * The Astral Plane is literally the dead-book of the gods.
 +
 +NOW, THAT'S NOT NOTHIN',​ IS IT, BERK?
