The spell Secret Chest says this:

You hide a chest, and all its contents, on the Ethereal Plane.

So, my question is: Where in the Ethereal Plane does the chest go?

Along the same lines, depending on the answer to that, is it possible for someone to travel through the ethereal plane to find a secret chest? I'm asking about this part as well because depending on where it's hidden, it may be either easier or harder for someone to track down a secret chest.

  • \$\begingroup\$ As to your second part, can you explain why you think that isn't possible? I think this question is bordering on too broad ... can your refocus it slightly or add a bit more detail in how this seeks to solve a problelm? \$\endgroup\$ Sep 30 '20 at 1:31

This is a matter of world building, not spell mechanics.

The spell description doesn’t tell us where the chest is, just that it’s on the ethereal plane.

In the event that the precise location of the secret chest becomes relevant, it’s entirely up to the DM to make that decision. This is a good opportunity for a DM to do some interesting world building around the location of the missing chest. Or maybe it just can’t be found. Up to the DM.
