Hi! I had two (hopefully quick) questions for you:
Should the Jade Family page be in the "Characters" section of the top-navigation bar or in some separate, new, "Other" or "Miscellaneous" section?
What does Earth (Continuum 1) use to take the place of our Earth's moon and sun? Does it use a light-emitting sky like most (if not all) of my realms have; does it have some small bodies orbiting it in some space between the planet and the realm walls; or something else?
If you have any answers for these questions, please let me know.
1. Put it in a "Families" or "Bloodlines" subsection in Earth (Continuum 1)'s section. This is so it doesn't get confused with other pages.
2. Earth (Continuum 1) has Regna Caelorum and She'ol orbiting it, representing night and day. The moon is Regna Caelorum's presence affecting She'ol.
If you've seen my Earth (Continuum 1) page, it is heavily influenced by Christianity.
I can't actually do that, as Earth (Continuum 1) is at a header level where it can't have sub-headers. However, I could make a Groups section under articles for the Jade Family and for some other group articles that I've been meaning to make for a while. Would that work, or should we do something else?
Makes sense. My only question now on this is: How would the corridor from the Dual-Vortex Realm interact with the fact that there would be this space around Earth; namely, would it simply drop people into space, where they'd fall to Earth; would it have an extension leading to the planet's surface, with this extension being avoided by Regna Caelorum and She'ol; or something else?
1. Yes, thank you.
2. The extension would go into the planet's surface, making anyone entering Earth (Continuum 1) simply pop in. The corridor would be invisible and only souls and people from outside the realm could feel it and interact with it. The corridor would make people appear in the city of Raleigh, North Carolina.
Sounds cool! I do have another question about this now, which is: If only souls and outsuders can interact with the corridor, does that mean that no one from Earth can leave the Realm, or did you mean something else that I'm not seeing?
No one can leave the realm, as Unus Sanctus wanted to keep the inhabitants of Earth in his protection. Demons count as "living beings" by the corridor, and are rendered so weak, they might well be dead.
Interesting. So people from elsewhere can get in and out again, but natives can't...and, if the outsiders have kids in the realm, the kids can't...This must open up a whole set of political quandaries that I'll have to think more on.
I now have another set of questions:
What demons are you talking about that are rendered weak in whatever circumstances you're talking about?
Would Unus Sanctus let anyone out of the realm if there seemed to him that there was some really important reason for said people to be let out? (I don't have such a reason in mind; I'm just curious.)
How does Unus Sanctus keep natives from getting out of the realm? Does he have a barrier in front of the corridor that only lets through outsiders, does he kill any natives who try to leave, or something else? (I figure it's Unus Sanctus doing this, not a condition of the DVR-Continuum 1 corridor, corridors are inherently non-magical.)
That explains why Unus Sanctus has this attitude towards demons. I'm still left wondering, though, what exactly "demons" are in this context. Are these demons beings that are particularly evil? Have some particular powerset? Are some particular type, or types, of creatures? All of the above? Knowing what count as demons in this context woukd be very useful to know.
Makes sense. I am now very curious as to what this "grander evil" is, though. While I don't question its existence, it would be good to know if it's an evil god, some aggregation of beings, some power, some sub-realms, etc.
Makes sense. I do wonder now, though, how the corridor and its extension into the realm would handle gravity. I assume that Earth would have gravity pointing towards its center, while the Dual-Vortex Realm has gravity pointing towards its objective bottom (which is not pointed directly towards Earth), so I'm not sure how the in-between gravity would handle all this. Do you have any suggestions? If not, I can work something out, but I'd be happy to hear some ideas of yours if you have any on this subject.
So essentially, Unus Sanctus kills any evils that try to escape the realm?
Ah. So it's one of these eternal battles between good and evil. Makes sense.
I'm not exactly sure what you meant by that. Let me clear something up before we work this out: The corridor—i.e. the thing that connects the two realms—is strictly non-magical by definition; all of these realm-connecting corridors are and must be. The extension into the Continuum 1 realm can be as magical or non-magical as you like, so you could, say, have something where standing in a certain place instantly teleports you to the entrance to the corridor, have a tube that orients gravity correctly to push you into the corridor or guide your exit from the corridor, etc. What I'm trying to figure out is twofold: What gravity this purely non-magical corridor would have, and what rules its extension into the realm would go by. (I'm also trying to figure out how this connects to your earlier idea that Divinium—which I'm not exactly clear on the nature of—would be required to enter the corridor, so if you could clear that up too, that would be good.)
Just a bit of a bump to remind you that I) I asked you a few questions here (not to push you, just to let you know in case this got buried in your email or something) and II) just in case you haven't seen, you have a few messages from me higher up on your wall. If you know all this, no rush; just wanted you to know in case you didn't.
So both the corridor and its extension into the realm have unusual gravity depending on the intentions of the person entering the corridor? That doesn't really work what with the corridor being strictly non-magical, so it kind of has to have fixed gravity...Am I missing something?
