    The short answer is no. It does not reach into other worlds. It's something that affects the material and the Primordial Dream and going into those places counts as "leave the area", even if after a month within the Maelstrom there are probably some minor reflections of its effects in the Shadow.

    Mages, provided they travel deep enough in the Temenos to reach the Primordial Dream, can fight it but it's not of great use. The best they can do is to delay its growth (let's say, if you slain the fake Horror that day does not count for the total of the twenty-six days and the Maelstrom has to go through that specific combination of Horror and Hunger one more time) but its astral form it's too strong and reforms the following day. It usually is not worth the effort.

    We finally got pictures of Pluto. No Mi-Go in sight. Those bastards are clever.

      Damn. I am really liking the Maelstroms, and all the possible story hooks one can cause.

        Thanks! They're the sort of thing that steals a lot space from other elements in a chronicle and takes a central place, which that makes them not much versatile. Glad to hear you see some potential in them.

        I'm probably returning to low-key, easily exploitable creatures for my next entry.

          I can re-enact one of the best stories from the Sandman comics? Awesome!

            That was the plan. Nice to see you got the reference. I was not subtle at all about it, but when you need to find ideas about creatures and things to populate the Dream you might as well steal from the best.

              Hey, nothing wrong with ripping ideas. Saves me the trouble of trying to figure out mechanics for it.

              Will there be any mechanics on how to replicate the way the situation was solved eventually in the comic? Is it even possible?

                I'd personally say that belongs to the realm of Storyteller's hands. In short, for the comics it was Rose's grandmother that took her place, but someone still had to die. Even Dream could not find another solution.

                You can plan it out in order to give the players the option, if they really want to and find a person (probably a related one) willing to take the Maelstrom's place, sure.

                Or perhaps you can exploit the Beast part of the arc and go for a solution that lies in the depths of the Primordial Dream and/or involves the Dark Mother. This might be more feasible once we learn more about it with the Player's Guide, but still.

                  Hmm. Here's an idea. Seeing as the Primordial Dream is the collective personification of fears, is it possible that there are some native entities/goetia who embody the fear of (natural) disasters and calamities? If so, I imagine their Numina could take the form of Lair Traits.

                    I think that's what Ravages are
