The '''Upper Planes''' is a term from [[Dungeons & Dragons]] introduced in the [[Planescape]] setting. It is a way of collectively referring to the [[plane]]s that are characterized by their prominent Good alignment, as on the standard planar "map" these make up the upper half of the [[Great Wheel]]. The Upper Planes are, of course, contrasted by the [[Lower Planes]] and the [[Middle Planes]], which collectively make up the [[Outer Planes]]. Its inhabitants are collectively called Celestials.

It's a matter of some contention where to place The Peaceable Kingdoms of [[Arcadia]] and The Heroic Domains of [[Ysgard]], as these occupy an intermediate point between Good and Neutral, and so some maps will place them as part of the Upper Planes and others as part of the [[Middle Planes]].
