    So, what are the "Test" features of the realm going to be this time around?

    The Dark Beyond will be something like a cross between a dream and a spirit world that Creatures can access during the time they spend (sleeping) in their lair. I've mentioned before in the Central Discussion that I wanted to bring roleplaying with no levels or like that to the test, this will be the place. Afterall, what's the use of muscles when your body is still in Crystalbarrow, and your spirit in the Dark Beyond? When being 'killed' or falling unconscious in battle during the time spend in the Dark Beyond, the Creature will merely wake up in his lair in the actual world, like you would wake up from a nightmare.

    Also, all creatures from all open realms will be able to access it regardless if a particular (needed) room is constructed or not. Creatures that are not in any realm at the time can also access it. Dead Creatures may not enter it.

    So any live creature from any realm can enter it when they're sleeping in their 'physical' realm?

    Sounds nifty.

    Now that is a neat idea... gives you something to do while sleeping a regenerating. There is however one small problem.

    Vermillion is ****ed.

    Creatures can hunt him down regardless of what realm he is in, lol.

    Would memories of time here remain?

    That's right.

    That's entirely dependent on the roleplayer his/her Creature in question. In reality most people forget after a while they dreamt about. Although I have read/heard you can actually 'train' yourself to be conscious in a dream.

    I'll repeat my questions here...

    Will heroes have access?

    Will the realm map/realm be otherworldly... volcanic rock, geysers, acid lakes?

    Actually when I think about it. I'm still considering to allow dead Creatures so they atleast have a place to go. Although that would require some extra rules and tweaking stuff.

    Will heroes have access?
    Yes, they can be conscious of it, or not. Although there might be some far worse threats in this strange place than Heroes...

    Will the realm map/realm be otherworldly... volcanic rock, geysers, acid lakes?
    That will depend on the creativity that can be achieved using the tools at disposal. I personally would imagine the realm to be dark, cold and depressing.

    Termites?

    Though I imagine it would involve some Boss-like Creatures. Or stuff that were supposed to be found in "The Deep".
