The Half World of Delugbarur
This half plane of existence is folded between the dimensional spaces. A world of weird geometry and weirder creatures. Those who travel here by dimensional adjustment are subject to its unholy physics and laws. This is a place where prolonged exposure results in a -3 to Charisma. It is populated by the lost and damned. 
Those who survive this hellish desert world are forever touched in some way. Some develop mutations and others aberrations of the body. There is a 40% chance of those who dwell here long develop some type of detrimental mutation. 
This mini plane prime is sometimes used by advanced alien races as a dumping ground for the criminal or insane of inter dimensional races.
