This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Okay so lock down, despite still being working, has left me with a lot of downtime - as I am sure many of you are also in the same boat.

And to be honest, I came across a couple of rather interesting books.

This is kind of tied into Pundit's Abyss thread, in that Champions Mystic World would be a great for this, in that it uses the same ideas from Gurps Cabal, just in more detail. Such that it has on the tree universes that run exclusively on magic (Exalted crossover anyone?), or to those dimensions that have rulers. You could then have Briar and Atziluth as the province of the Primordials i guess.

Although a better source book is from the Age system - this is the absolutely superlative Threefold. It has three types of world lines - Netherworlds (Demon dimensions), Otherworlds (magic can be freely used), and Primes (where technology is used, but magic can be used by some / few). The cosmology is interesting, in that it can easily incorporate the Lords of Olympus stuff, and allow for Amberites etc.

It has some multiverse travelling factions such as the Divine Empire, Sodality and Peridexion (kind of UFP across planes), and the Nighthost. I absolutely plan on using this myself at some point, veeeery soon.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thing is, using Age: Threefold would require a mix of lords of Olympus and Amber in order to work. So the best way would be to have the Amberites / Olympians related in some way.

Heck, you could even strip out Amber and add in Lords of Chaos / Order from Moorcock / Dc comics in order to get the relationship ironed out - whether you re-insert Amber or leave totally out at this point does not really matter.

As long as you have the principles you're all good.
