- This article is about the demiplane. For the module of the same name, see The Land Beyond the Magic Mirror.
There are several portals to the Land Beyond the Magic Mirror beneath Castle Greyhawk. One of them is a silvery-black mirror in room Z632 in Greyhawk Ruins, on the level known as Zagig's Crypt. The portal leads directly to Murlynd's Magic Mirror House, in a room where he keeps the objects he has collected in his travels.
The Land Beyond the Magic Mirror is part of the same plane as Dungeonland, separated from Dungeonland by a dense forest to the west of the Dungeonland map. A sea at the edge of the world touches both regions.
The Dungeonland/Land Beyond the Magic Mirror demiplane is not quite a mile in diameter. Those who insist on hacking through the thick forest at the edge of the world will eventually end up at the point where they left.
This demiplane consists of a maze of temperate forests, with mazelike paths leading to various clearings within. Something about the flora and fauna seems subtly off to those who pay attention; the insects may have a few too many legs, or the plants and animals may be more talkative than is normal for their species, for example.
A number of spells fail to function within the Land Beyond the Magic Mirror, including those that summon creatures, control weather, or make travel more convenient. X-ray vision also fails to function here. Natives of the plane are not affected by these restrictions, at least not those governing travel. Objects taken from the demiplane transform into miniature tokens when taken to other planes.
Prominent locations include the Tulgey Wood, the Magic Mirror House of Murlynd, the Chessboard Fields, the Mad Feast Hall, and the Palace of the King and Queen of Courland.
