Planescape set reads less like a textbook and more like a story. Characters take precedence over game systems, high adventure supplants the physics lessons. It is popular as a meeting place for treaties between the powers. The Outlands are also home to the gate-towns. The Outlands are part of a series of rings that form the multiverse.
Travel between the planes of the Outlands is accomplished via The Great Road. Planescape, this plane is also at the center of the Outer Planes and known by its original name Concordant Opposition. Neutral Deity asserted their individual influence causing it to become unbalanced, then were cast out by the powers of creation. It also states that three lights of balance exist at the center of this plane, one for each Mediator in Nirvana.
Before Planescape, there is also no mention whatsoever of Sigil being at the Center of this Plane. The character of Xaos mirrors what the plane of Limbo is like. There is no sky, simply an all-pervasive light that waxes and wanes to create day and night. Sigil cannot be entered or exited save via portals. Although this makes it quite safe from any would-be invader, it also makes it a prison of sorts for those not possessing a portal key. Thus, many call Sigil “The Bird Cage” or “The Cage.

A complete list of Sects is probably not possible due the infinite multitudes of the Planes. Planescape: the Rule-of-Three, the Unity of Rings, and the Center of the Multiverse. The first principle, the Rule-of-Three, says simply that things tend to happen in threes.
The principles which govern the planes are themselves subject to this rule. The second principle is the Unity of Rings, and notes that many things on the planes are circular, coming back around to where they started. This is true geographically as well as philosophically. As most planes are functionally infinite, disproving anyone’s centricity would be impossible. The fact that anywhere could be the center of the multiverse in this view also implies that nowhere can be said to be the de facto true and only center. This sparks a lot of arguments and violence since some people believe the City of Doors to be the center due to its uncommon number of portals to other planes and position in the Outlands and some factions also claim different centers, each with their own significance.
