PARALLEL WORLDS AND OTHER DIMENSIONS

These worlds occupy the same time and space as our earth, but have different characteristics.

Arret - A parallel version of earth, where protons are negative and electrons are positive. Matter from our world can only exist in Arret for about 12 hours, before it is converted to Arretian atomic structure. Nearly everything in this world from the soil to the sky is a shade of red. However, a blue flame, possibly electrical rises from the earth in some places. The native vegetation, which is red, grows globuals and glossy spheres rather than leaves. Arret is inhabited by thousands of "rat-men" with a primitive civilization and by "Devil Crystals." Devil Crystals are translucent carniverous crystals, that can slowly crawl, and make a tinkling sound while devouring organic matter. They can also project a tentacle of filaments that wrap around their prey like a web. [Devil Crystals of Arret by Hal K. Wells]

Dimension X [Rod Brown of the Rocket Rangers: Invasion from Dimension X]

Flatland - A two-dimensional realm. There is a kind of gravity which pulls things southward, and rain falls from the north. The inhabitants are simple geometric shapes and they can only precieve lengths of lines. [Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin A. Abbot]

Fourth Dimension - Almost always depicted as a strange universe of unfathomable monsters and bizzare landscapes. Human visitors are often precieved as "ghosts" in our own world. [various]

Paw World - A parallel universe in which the earth is inhabited by intelligent talking animals, most of whom walk on two legs. In this universe, dogs are the most common citizens of civilized nations, though talking cats, pigs, rabbits, mice, ducks and horses are also very common. Humans are rarely seen on this world, but are sometimes kept as pets.

"Tyrant World" - A parallel universe in which every character's personality is the opposite of what it is in most universes.  Although these characters had similar histories to their counterparts, they choose to make the opposite decisions in response to these events.  Therefore, all heroes are villains, and all villains are heroes.  The democracies of the world are now dictatorships, and dictatorships are the last bastions of hope for freedom, controlled by rebellious freedom fighters.

Thomahlia - A parallel version of earth in which the night sky is gray, with black points where the stars would be. It is ruled by a monarchy. [The Blind Spot by Austin Hall and Homer Eon Flint]

Vonya - A parallel version of earth, inhabited by cave-men, primitive human barbarians who speak perfect English, green skinned humanoids and humanoid "water-beasts" among other strange plants and creatures. [Prisoners Of The Lost Universe]

 

MAGICAL REALMS

These worlds might be considered "pocket dimensions" within any given universe.  Their geography, though vast, is usually finite.  They may have a variety of access points, at real locations on earth or beyond the earth, but their geography, and their natural laws are generally incongruous to the geography and physical laws of any other plane.  Many of these worlds are tied to dreams and imagination, making their physical reality questionable.  Still, their physical manifestation may be made possible by the magic charms of their strange inhabitants (such as fairies, spirits and demons).

This Neverland island is inhabited by fairies, mermaids, pirates, the Pini tribe and a wide array of wild beasts. [James M. Barie]

Noom - A magical kingdom on the far side of the moon (possibly a Neverland). It has giant mushrooms that taste like cake, and lemonade springs and it is inhabited by a variety of magical characters. [The Magical Land of Noom by Johnny Gruelle]

People live spread out in the vast wilderness and grow to any age they wish. Mates are appointed and couples are permitted to have only one child. To violate the law of nature is "unhappiness." The flowers produce music. (this world is later revealed to be the subject of a primitive "virtual reality" show)

Polistarchia - A country created from a model made of toys and brought to life with the imagination (possibly a Neverland). [Edith Nesbit]
-Polistopolis - Capital of Polistarchia
-Somnolentia (formerly Briskford) - a region in the north.

ALTERNATE REALITIES

While it is impossible to document the infinite number of potential alternate realities, there are a number of common alternate realities (CARs) which run parallel to any given universe. Sometimes, characteristics of these alternate realities overlap in a variety of permutations. To facilitate the documentation of these permutations, you will find handy abbreviations for each CAR, which can be combined to describe the properties of a universe. For example: MAG-TYR-WAR-VIC would depict a parallel universe with anime physics, in which the usual heroes are villains who have led the world into a terrible appocalypse in a victorian age setting.

Alternative Science Universes

SIL: Sillyverse (cartoon) - Characters are especially colorful and round looking. People are rarely killed or seriously injured, regardless of how perilous their situation. The standard Laws of Physics and basic scientific principals have little relevance in this world.

MUS: Musicverse (musical) - Characters are generally a bit more flamboyant than usual. They fight with very big, dance-like movement and occassionally burst into song. Heroes rarely die. Laws of Physics and basic scientific principals are different than our universe, but not to an absurd degree.

SUP: Superverse (comic) - Characters generally wear very bright and flamboyant costumes. Characters frequently die by violent means, but their death is usually temporary (usually lasting only a year or two). The Laws of Physics and basic scientific principals are often very alien to our universe. Exposure to radiation, toxic waste and massive quantities of electricity are just as likely to result in beneficial mutations as they are to result in death. Gaining superhuman powers is not uncommon, and superheroes, monsters and alien races are fairly common to the experience of the general public.

MAG: Magnaverse (anime) - Characters are usually younger and more agile than usual. Characters in dangerous situations frequently die. The Laws of Physics and basic scientific principals are often very alien to our universe. Gravity is not as powerful, allowing individuals to make incredible leaps, carry enormous weapons, and allowing vehicles of enormous size to operate with great agility. Individuals who strain themselves in any way are very susceptible to nose bleeds.

CIN: Cineverse (movie) - Characters usually dress more practically, often wearing dark leather or armor. The population is generally more ethnically diverse, and some individuals have a different ethnicity than usual. Death is usually permanent. Laws of Physics and basic scientific principals are different than our universe, but not to an absurd degree.

DRA: Dramaverse (TV) - Characters usually dress more practically, usually wearing street clothes. Interpersonal relationships are much more dynamic, with individuals demonstrating more angst and moral deliberation than usual. Laws of Physics and basic scientific principals are often very similar to our universe. The general public does not believe that superheroes, monsters and alien races exist.

NOI: Noirverse (pulp) - Characters usually dress more practically, usually wearing street clothes. Characters in dangerous situations frequently die. Laws of Physics and basic scientific principals are often very similar to the our universe. Crime is rampant. There may only be one hero in this universe.

RW: "The Real World" - To avoid confusion, remember that this is not actually the universe we live in. It is a parallel universe that very much resembles our own in most ways. However, it is actually a nexus of realities, where characters that are otherwise considered "fictional" often break through the barrier to meet their creators. Usually, these characters are forced to live by laws of physics similar to those of our universe.

Alternate Character Universes

ANI: Animalverse - All characters are anthropomorphic animals of various kinds.

ETH: Ethnicverse - Characters do not belong to the same ethnic group as usual.

GEN: Genderverse - All characters are the opposite gender.

TYR: Tyrantverse - All characters have the opposite motivations of their usual motivations. Good guys are evil and bad guys are heroic.

YOU: Youthverse - All characters are 10-20 years younger than usual, with the primary characters being 4-16 years old, despite the fact that the setting is contemporary and key events of their origins never happened.

Alternate Event Universes

DIN: Dinoverse - A parallel universe in which dinosaurs never went extinct, and continued to be dominant on Earth.

DRG: Dragonverse - A parallel universe in which magic is prevalent and technology never progressed beyond the middle ages.  In this universe, heroes and villains are knights, mages and alchemists.  All the nations of the world are kingdoms.  Dragons, elves, goblins and trolls are more common creatures than real world animals, and many real world animals are believed to be myths.

CNQ: Conquerverse - A parallel universe or near future universe in which the villains have already won, and they now have tyranical power over the entire world or the entire universe. There is a villainverse for every single villain seeking world conquest, but the most common villain universes are those ruled by Nazis, tyrannical communists, anti-human robots, vampires, zombies or demons.

-MW: Machine World - A parallel universe in which technology has run amok, and machines have taken control of the earth, either to replace or protect the flawed, weak and violent human race.  To this end, the machines use powerful robot enforcers or exterminators.  The robots are usually controlled by a highly intelligent central computer that is located in an impenetrable fortress.

-ZW: Zombie World - A parallel universe in which most humans on earth have been turned into zombies.  Only a few humans survive and sometimes band together to defend themselves from the overwhelming numbers of the zombie hordes.

WAR: War World - A parallel universe in which the earth has experienced World War III or some similar catastrophe such as a plague or a meteor strike. The people are now struggling through the aftermath.  Resources are scarce.  There is no organized government, but there is organized crime.  People have formed gangs and tribes in order to survive.  Some live in fortified cities, hoping to defend themselves from ruthless marauders.  Everyone battles for their life on a daily basis.

Alternate Timeline Universes
