ALTERNATE REALITIES | DIMENSIONS
THE COLD WORLD
Also: Vampire Dimension
THE SPACE BETWEEN THE STARS
Also: GREAT OLD ONES' REALM, Lovecraft's Lair
The Space Between The Stars is home to creatures so alien and deviant to everything humans know or want to know that it is a dimension of true and pure horror for any sane and conscious being. Since a split second after the last creation cycle origin event of our consensus reality universe it's inhabited by a seemingly plethora of indescribably abject beings, called The Great Old Ones by Lovecraft.

THE DEAD DIMENSION
Also: Desert Of Death, The Forbidden Zone, The Contaminated Reality
LAND OF TWILIGHT
Also: Fairy Land, Tír Na NÓg, Land Of No Return
The Land Of Twilight has always been a magnet for poets and artists. Countless works of art depict this otherworldly realm.
Also: Barzakh, The Delicate Veil

The first literarily documented contacts took place in the early Middle Ages, as described by Bishop Agobard of Lyon around 815. According to early records of PANTHERION, the Dutch painter Jheronimus van Aken (better known as Hieronymus Bosch, 1450-1516) was also a Magonian contact person, which is reflected in his paintings, which even today elude classification as the art of his time.
The Magonians enter our earthly reality with a "technology" indistinguishable from natural earthly meteorological phenomena, which in earlier times earned them the reputation of being evil weather magicians ("Tempestarii"), as their appearance is almost always accompanied by storms and bad harvests. In a few exceptional cases they were considered to be angels or other "heavenly beings" of positive interpretation.
In any case, contacts with Magonians were responsible to a not inconsiderable extent for an increase in demon and witch hysteria in the late Middle Ages. The reason for the almost invasion-like visits of magonian beings at certain times was a mystery for a long time, until the French scholar Jean Bodin, shortly before his death at the end of the 16th century, decided to take a closer look at the history of magonism. During the research for his book De Magorum Daemonomania, the French scholar Jean Bodin found out that Magonians had an addictive predilection for earthly berries (especially bromine, raspberries and strawberries) as well as for certain types of grain and field crops, since these were the only objects in MAGONIA that never changed their appearance/colour for reasons that are (as yet) unknown. One theory is that these plants might have a natural multidimensional homogeneity - which would provide interesting medical-pharmaceutical aspects for future reality and dimensional expeditions.
With a probability bordering on certainty, the more or less geometrical figures known as "Crop Circles", which can be observed again and again in many places on earth, represent a highly complex technology of the Magonians to use certain geographical points / regions as multidimensional anchor points.
Various earthly intoxicants, such as Datura Stramonium, Mescaline or Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) can facilitate the mutual communication with these beings, but they also carry the danger of being carried off to MAGONIA by them, which might be an extremely unpleasant, mostly lethal experience, since humans are normally not suited to exist in a world with oscillating frequencies.
"But we have seen and heard many who are possessed by such madness, confused by such folly, that they believe and claim that there is a land called Magonia, from which ships are sailed in the clouds, in which the crops, which are knocked down by the hailstorms and destroyed by storms, are transported to that land, these airships giving their wages to the weather-makers and receiving the grain or other crops. To think that such a thing is possible, blinded by such abysmal folly, we have seen a whole group of people in a crowd of people dragging four people - three men and one woman - tied up, who are said to have fallen from these very ships. They then kept them tied up and locked up for a few days and then presented them to a large gathering, as I said, in our presence, so that they might be stoned to death."
"I know it from my grandmother, the farmhand continued. She often heard her grandmother tell the story in Alsace when the weather was blowing over the Odilienberg. From the land of Magonia it sailed here, the fog ship, white above the black clouds, Fasolt and Mermuth sitting inside, hailing the grain from the stalks when the weather wizard gave them power over it, and lifting our grain up in the airship and going home to Magonia again, and paying a good wage. The fog ship calls in more than masses, but the husks remain for us."
INTERSPACE & TRANSITION
Also: Threshold, The Membranes
The TRANSITION is a hub for lucid dreamers and out-of-body travellers. From here one can theoretically travel to the dream/astral world of all other dimensions. To do this, it is necessary to conjure up the strongest possible emotion, which you associate with the desired dimension and let yourself be drawn there, so to speak. Of course, this presupposes that on the one hand you can control your dreams or that you have had sufficient ACE training and on the other hand that you have corresponding experience with the parallel world whose subtle spheres you wish to visit.
According to Mark Vectoric, the INTERSPACE is "... like the area between tick and tock, between one thought and the next, between the moment you fall and the moment you start to fall. So it's a non-space, so to speak, it's the transition from one world to another. And: it is extremely difficult to reach, because with the Reality Radio you can only access the frequencies of different dimensions, but not the space between them."
Since the events of its discovery by PANTHERION (see the radio play No. 1: "Space in between") the team suspects that the Necronauts are behind it – they try to charge it with so much consciousness that it collapses and thus the partitions between the dimensions are quasi blown up; thus their way would be free to physically cross the border to the beyond.
The consideration here is the following: The INTERSPACE behaves like a heightened energy level between the dimensions. One could imagine it as elevations, while the individual dimensions lie in depressions like lakes. The Necronauts probably recognized the energy potential of the INTERSPACE and started to "suck" energy from it through their experiments with its charging of consciousness: All sorts of devices can be powered by it. If enough energy is "sucked off" at one point, the energy level there drops over a wide area and the dimensions (the lakes) come closer together – until they finally touch. Imagine an inflated barrier that separates two water basins until someone pushes down this barrier. If more and more and more power-hungry devices / machines are used at one place, this could become problematic: If a lot of energy is extracted from one place, the level there drops and two dimensions could overlap and even mix up on a broad front!
THE PARADISE DIMENSION
Also: Eden Prime, Unus Mundus, Garden Of Delights
It is a legend ... and entices with unimaginable visions: It definitely holds the promise of eternal life for the Vampires, offers a horrible playground for the creatures from THE SPACE BETWEEN THE STARS, gives the Clowns whatever they want, and holds an unlimited field of experiments for the Curators ... and also all problems of the humans could be solved there. How to get there is a contention among philosophers, frontier scientists, metaphysicians, and magicians of all worlds.
