Mertion, also known as the Platinum Heaven, was the fifth layer of Mount Celestia.[2] According to the Great Wheel cosmology, it was the location of the city of Empyrea and the plains of Arvenna.[1]

GeographyEdit

With a sky not too different from Solania's, Mertion was home to vast plains and savannas that served as the mustering grounds for paladins and other lawful good servants. Instead of mountains, Mertion had majestic citadels and huge black spherical domes dotting the plains. Access to the next layer up was found at the tops of the domes.[3]

GovernmentEdit

The ruler of Mertion was Raziel, one of the celestial paragons of the archons. He was called the Crusader and was the patron of paladins.[4]
