General information[edit | edit source]
Alternating Democratic and Republican Administrations prevents the US from aiding England against Hitler and England falls. Due to the corruption and cooperation of the Pelley Administration, America is reduced to a client state of Germany shortly before German troops smash Canada to officially end the war.
German and Japanese powers keep their spheres of influence separate, peaceful co-existence is maintained. German Aerospace tech may be the best military air and spacecraft Homeline has seen and Japan's bio research is equally advanced.
The Secret[edit | edit source]
- Known and Not Known. A small faction of Himmlerian mystics and pseudoscientists (formally called the Armanen Order) know about Homeline's existence and have the genes of a dead psionic Homeline Jumper to clone. They've done remarkably fast travel through a number of Dimensions via an interdimensional road they call the Chronobahn.
At best the Armanen Order knows:
- Quantum shifts happen to realities in Quantum 6; but they are in Quantum 3
- Quantum shifts are (supposedly) limited to worlds that echo Homeline's history. Parallels whose history diverged long ago don't seem to shift.
- Some organization called Interworld from a reality called Centrum has knowledge on how to intentionally shift a reality's quantum. Homeline at best has a vague understanding on how to shift them back.
- Centrum is so far away that Homeline can't reach them and Reich-5 is just on the edge of Homeline's range in the opposite direction so they aren't getting information from any possible Centrum agents. (Red Moon has been a game changer and makes the Order very nervous).
Key worlds they have encountered[edit | edit source]
- Nostradamus, a world where Nostradamus' quatrains can be used to cast magic spells. Conquered by the Nazis.
- Friedrich, the holiest of holy grails for the Nazi mystics. A world where Barbarossa succeeded and created a unified German Nation. They are working to better arm these people and recruiting soldiers to aid in their other activities. Homeline knows this and is quite worried.
- Merlin-1. Homeline knows nothing about this. They would be utterly terrified if they knew. Eva Peron, the Killer Penguins and Reich 5 Nazis are negotiating and planning to jointly use Technomancer Magic, Penguin Psionics and Nazi Technology to both bring the rest of this planet to heel and jointly explore and exploit the multiverse.
- Red Moon. Neither Homeline or Centrum know of the presence of Reich-5. Homeline would be more terrified then with regards to Merlin-1 as it would shows that Reich-5 can access other quanta besides its native 3 (Red Moon is in Quantum 5).
Gamma[edit | edit source]
Variant from 23 Skidoo setting. Unlike Reich-5 is had sideslipping before "Homeline" (Alpha).
