On July 22, 1943 the Eldridge vanished with Nikola Tesla onboard. This disappearance coincided with equilateral triangles a mile on a side opening up in eight locations around the world which remain open.
Six of these triangles open to what appears to a “parallel Earth” although with widely variant physical laws. Somehow travelers from these other worlds carry their reality's physical laws with them – werewolves remain vulnerable to silver, for instance.
The Nine WorldsEdit
- Engstrom itself is locally known as Midgard.
- Reich-A ("Asgard"): local year 1954, originally an echo of Reich-2
- Vanaheim : gods and heroes walk the earth
- Jotunheim: local year 1949, where the Fourth Reich plans a comeback. Named "Jotumheim" in Lost Worlds.
- Alfheim: local year 1194, where the Daoine Sidhe rule Europe
- Nidavellir: a hollow world controlled by the Agarthans.
- Muspellheim: local year 1945. Japanese giant monsters and giant mecha serve as shock troops.
- Niflheim: the restless undead roam the world.
- The divergence date was originally given as July 22, 1943 in Weird War II but was changed to July 12, 1943 in GURPS Infinite Worlds - Lost Worlds
- While Engstrom calls itself "Midgard" it is a totally different reality from the one Infinity calls Midgard.
- Travel into or between any of the Nine Worlds is relatively easy; traveling out of the Nine Worlds to other Earths is at -8 to skill! Because Infinity has nearly lost four conveyors in this skerry they have classified all of the Nine Worlds as Z4.
