The Wilderlands of High Weirdness
Weirdness and the Outside
Only the religious and the scholarly really concern themselves with the structure of the universe: the various celestial spheres and voids, afterlives and godshomes, heavens and abysses, elemental planes, alternate timelines, pocket dimensions and shadow worlds, and where they’re located and why you’d want to go there or avoid them at all costs. To everyone else, it’s just Outside. Much like Hell and Faerie, there are places where Outside comes in: floating islands, seas of fire, deserts of black glass, timelost valleys, dreamtimes, Brigadoons, and the like. There are things that live Outside, some benevolent, mostly inimical. There are things Outside that can frighten the Fair Folk. There are ways to travel Outside to different worlds and different times.
