The Elemental Plane of Air is one of many Planes of Existence in the Critical Role universe.  It connects to at least two points on the world of Exandria in the Material Plane.

Connections to the Material Plane[]

The Portal to Zephrah[]

There is a portal that connects the Material Plane to the Elemental Plane of Air. The Air Ashari established a settlement called Zephrah at the other end of the portal to guard the world from the energies of the Elemental Plane of Air.[1]

Portal in Cavern of Axiom[]

In Kamaljiori's chamber deep in the Cavern of Axiom, there are gateways to four Elemental Planes.[2] Grog, Scanlan, and Vax'ildan leapt into a cyclone marking the gateway to the Elemental Plane of Air.[3]


In the adventure hook A Welcome Overstayed, set in 836 PD, a djinni named Shaktia was forced out the Plane of Air recently entering Zephrah through the elemental rift. Shaktia wasn't kin on going back to his home realm, instead avidly engaging with the local villagers: pranking, debating, or invitating people to become his well-paid servants. Keyleth sought adventurers to capture Shaktia and return him to the Elemental Plane of Air, although the genie has a good reason to avoid his home plane.[4]
