Yes, a creature CAN cast Astral Projection from any plane AND their physical bodies CAN move from Plane to plane (just not of their own Volition) while "traveling." Note that this spell is different from spells like Blink & Ethereal Jaunt which interact with the Ethereal Plane because only certain planes touch the Ethereal Plane, Material Plane being ...

Yes, you can use astral projection from planes other than the Material Plane. The Manual of the Planes describes how spells that access transitive planes such as the Astral Plane function on other planes in the section "Moving Among Transitive Planes" (starting on page 45).

The Great Beyond says: Pharasma’s Court While the River of Souls arrives at Pharasma’s domain atop the Spire, not all souls undergo the same process. Some souls come ...

Hell is the alignment plane for LE souls. Abaddon is the alignment plane for NE souls. The Abyss is the alignment plane for CE souls. Pharasma's judging process is not specified in the source material.

The Ordial Plane is not canon While it's a cool idea, the concept originated, as far back as I have found, on mimir.net, and became a popular fan idea from there. But as I say, it was a reasonably well-designed idea and there was a niche the author wanted to fill, so let's talk about that. The Ordial Plane is the Plane of Proof The cosmological model of ...
