Dimensional travel can be a very useful tool in
SSKiller, it can also be very confusing to the players, the thing
is not everything works from dimension to dimension, some
dimensions have totally different physical and magic rules to the
SSKiller world, in some dimensions gravity will work in a
different way, say rain falls upwards off the ground or something
Actual dimensional travel is done through
dimension gates, sometimes by dimension door spells, sometimes
you will know you've traveled to a different dimension sometimes
you won't. If a spell user opens a dimensional portal, most of
the time they are opening a portal to a known location, but it is
possible to open dimensional gateways to a dimension the portal
opener has never been to, just herd about.
Eg. the spell caster wants to go to a dimension where this
strange device he has found will work, he casts his spell and
succeeds, the swirling whirlpool opens leading to a different
dimension, however all the spell caster knows is the object there
are holding will work there. the rests up to the GM.
see Time Travel.
take a cartoon, any cartoon, the laws of toon work here,
however, players still loose lives as normal as they aren't toons
Not technically a dimension but the effects may be found in a
number of different dimensions, demon like creatures walking
around torturing lesser creatures, burning lava pits, you get the
Well not realy heaven, but a good likeness for any but the
players, no weapons work here of any sort, nobody dies or can be
killed, nothing to do except play the harp, Yawn!
these dimensions are sought after for there specific effects, say
you can die but are resurrected every morning, wounds heal at an accelerated speed, time flows backwards compared to your normal
these are dimensions that are so close to your home dimension
they even have versions of you walking about in them, these
versions may be more or less successful than you, just watch
"Sliders" for some ideas.
these are very small dimensions, some you can throw a
rock in one direction and it will go all the way around and hit
you in the back, these are commonly used in the production of
bags of holding, etc. some Heroes may even have there own pocket
dimensions with rooms, castles, asteroids, etc., in them. These
are commonly warded from accidental visitors.
there are many more dimensions, anything you
can think of may happen in a different dimension, if you know how
and where to look, but there is one rule, nothing may be brought
back that would unbalance the SSKiller world for more than a
number of years.
Eg. if the players manage to find an Item, say a Challenger II
Tank, that works in the SSKiller world, if the players bring it
back to the SSKiller world, it will break down and cease to work
within a year, and nothing the players can do will stop this,
also if the players bring another one through, that one will also
not work, the SSKiller dimension has changed to preserve its
Dimensional travel can be fun for powerful characters, and a nightmare
for less powerful ones.
