This article is about a layer of the Abyss. For other uses, see Torrent (disambiguation).

The 148th layer of the Abyss is a rocky, wind-blasted plain named Torrent. Dark blue and green clouds roil endlessly through the sky, and bolts of lightning strike the ground incessantly. Only creatures made of lightning - or those with immunity to its effects - can live in this dismal place.

Any creature standing on the surface of Torrent will eventually be struck by lightning. The inhabitants consider such an event joyous - a sensual joining between the sky and the earth via the body of a fortunate intermediary. Most visitors, however, have no such romantic notions about several million volts of electricity coursing through their bodies.
