Is there a method for the party could allow the setup to function across planes and very distant locations in some manner? It needs to be receivable by things other than creatures as well if possible.

  • \$\begingroup\$ To confirm, you're asking if there's a way to freely communicate between different planes? Presumably, the Sending spell is insufficient for this? \$\endgroup\$ – Pyrotechnical Feb 22 at 17:14
  • \$\begingroup\$ "It needs to be receivable by things other than creatures." What kind of "things" you mean here? Radio? Crystall ball? Scrying sensor? What? \$\endgroup\$ – Vylix Feb 22 at 17:17
  • \$\begingroup\$ Exactly, and it is related to the logic gates or wires question is that there might be a desire to stretch the link across the plane, meaning it has to be an actual audio, visual, or other signal so the Magic mouth can detect it \$\endgroup\$ – Ej Sizemore Feb 22 at 17:18
  • \$\begingroup\$ Though I feel that it being able to be received by scrying sensor or crystal ball would work as well \$\endgroup\$ – Ej Sizemore Feb 22 at 17:19

Let your players play

You've got a very interesting and different world. Rather than trying to come up with solutions for your players, let them come up with ways they want to do things and then adjudicate whether or not they'll work.

You can ask the specific methods here if you want another opinion, but your world is up to you and you can reward your players for creative thinking if you like their plans.

Worldbuilding

If you want these systems in place, you are very free to create them. Given your world is not standard, you are more than free (you are encouraged!) to develop systems that work for you. Trying to force the square peg standard rules into your homebrew situation may not be the best fit and you are definitely free to utilize existing content in new and interesting ways that fit your narrative.

You want Teleportation Circles to be cross-planar? Go for it! You want sending or Sending Stones to work that way - make 'em! Don't be afraid to homebrew mechanics for your homebrew world!

  • \$\begingroup\$ @EjSizemore Do you want these systems in place upon immediate start of campaign for their use? \$\endgroup\$ – NautArch Feb 22 at 17:46

    \$\begingroup\$ Thanks, and when I think about it, my setting is so chaotic that many of the existing rules probably wouldn’t work, for example, Earth(planet, not plane) is meting mushed up with a ton of planes. Modrons falling from the moon, the international space station covered in the most chaotically topped pizza, Mount Everest acting like a miniature mount Celestia, and the Mariana Trench being a watery opening to the abyss \$\endgroup\$ – Ej Sizemore Feb 22 at 17:57
