welcome to goss!
Countless intangible veils separate all universes from each other - and from ours. The fabric of space and time is at its faintest, like gossamer, at these proximate points we share with all other realities. Interdimensional castaways are drawn to safety and arrive on a train in our core world, Hialao. The train system also serves as our lifeblood by connecting five other worlds to Hialao.

With the dimensional displacements not yet showing signs of slowing, and research forever futile on how to leave (besides those who simply vanish, falling back through the invisible curtain), it's impossible to say who might arrive and how they might shape this fragile series of lands, eras and cultures. Good luck out there.

  • even the train station of this dimension is is entirely underwater, primarily functioning as a submarine port. tethya’s port lies within one of the dimension’s large area-bubbles, where submarines come and go on a strict schedule. the only train that runs from the port is the subway that links it to hialao. save for the docks, someone smart has built a cafe that serves light snacks for travelers. like the rest of tethya’s food, the cafe serves freshly-caught dishes, its entire menu consisting of seafood.

  • tethya is a much smaller dimension compared to the others, and residential space is scarce. the auxis quarter houses both the stinking rich and the average citizens. those who can afford to live comfortably in tethya make their home with other people who are filthy rich. however, the majority of the tethya’s residents live in the apartment complexes. the architects of the dimension chose to build up as opposed to horizontally due to the lack of land, some of these apartments reaching up to twenty floors high.

  • the belontia quarter sells unique wares that are difficult to come by in other dimensions. nearly all of the goods that can be found in belontia find their origins in the ocean. from fish-scale earrings to kelp dresses (who wears kelp dresses people from tethya wear kelp dresses), belontia offers a boatload of special merchandise. even the cuisine that belontia has to offer revolves around sealife, down to both cooked and raw fish whose flesh is so tender that it melts in your mouth.

  • if you’re looking to make a splash both literally and figuratively, look no further than the lamna quarter. the entertainment district of tethya is generally teeming with visitors, their main attraction in the shape of a large amusement park. those who wish for some peace and quiet often seek refuge in the pyocs gardens. surprisingly enough, many of tethya’s residents are heavily invested in submarine racing, and at night, the sounds of illegal drag races that happen outside the official tracks.

  • unlike the rest of tethya, the xiphias quarter is primarily devoid of the leisurely activities. here, the governing body of the tethya dimension can be found, including the royal palace and the council building. most of the power rests in the monarch's hands, and though the architecture is relatively toned down and classical, the colorful palace, decorated with both polished glass and shells, is awe-inspiring.

  • the world outside of tethya’s bubbles are dark and dangerous. with ocean stretching on for endless miles all around and no surface to speak of, the only sources of light are from the deep-sea creatures and the light from divers and submarines. there are treacherous underwater currents and massive beasts that lurk outside the safety of the main city. tethya’s rulers encourage people to stay within the city as much as possible, but there are still many adventurous souls who wander out -- perhaps in search of treasure, or the surface, or even to participate in illegal submarine races.
