Hi Glynn Tyrant. It would be nice to do some collaborative work with you. I've been thinking of a story where the Council and Zachensa's nations organize an expedition to the barriers to investigate. Perhaps they can meet some of your mystics/essence wielders on the other side, if you want.
Sounds fun. In Tyris Major, there is a character who specializes in studying the planes of existence and one of her titles is literally "Master Mystic". Perhaps she would be useful in helping the Council research the phenomenon.
I like that idea. I plan to make the investigations into the barriers and their weakening and why they were there at all part of a longer story arc, but everything needs to start somewhere and I like the idea of a couple of the mystics meeting and working with this character you have. It'd make for an interesting first contact with the wider universe.
Great idea. Yeah the fiction universe gets pretty expansive. I tend to do co-writing in the Mirus Galaxy and I'm the head writer in the Tyris Major Galaxy. In both galaxies, many characters have passing knowledge about other planes such as The Void, The Abyss, and Callambea to name a few.
The Void and the Abyss are such planes that "leak" into and screw with the fabric of reality. This is a phenomenon that my character, Dr. Nu'Iva Shal talks about in her essay On the Abyss.
TLDR for the links: Nu'Iva Shal is a famous magic doctor and says Void and Abyss are dangerous and wrote a paper on it.
Well the Zachensa Sector is in the Milky Way as of now, but I can see a situation where Dr. Nu'lva Shal is in the Milky Way on separate business and sensed what's going on, since the barriers are charged with Essence. Both sides can sense what's going on because of that. It's up to you. I plan on writing out this story over the next week or two. If you want, we can iron out the details over that period of time.
