    To maybe clarify a bit -

    Every other supernatural being (so far! Although I can't see Deviants much caring about it) see Twilight as a state of existence and the Underworld as a seperate Realm that's walled off from the material world but reached through Avernian gates.

    Mummies see Twilight as a Realm and the blue-book Underworld (tunnels, rivers, etc) as part of that realm, with Duat "Westward" from it.

      The Lower Depths from Mage don't really have enough substance or reality to be anything at all. They're vague half-existent realities, mostly full of void and nothing. About all they have to offer is a hollow and empty hunger.

        This reminds me of the way Werewolves consider the Anima Mundi to be simply a deep and strange part of the Shadow, whereas Mages view the Astral and the Shadow as being entirely distinct.

          Are Avernian Gates always considered "open" to Mummies (in Twilight, at least), then? It would explain why they see Twilight and the Underworld as one in the same, if they never encountered any kind of hard stop or border.

            No, but it's like not considering the contents of a bank vault as being in another universe.

              Some are emptier than others.

                The really creepy thing is that I'm not sure whether being emptier makes it more or less scary.

                    Will there be 2 or 3 Dark Eras books due to all the Kickstarter expansions, and will they all be released simultaneously?

                      Two books; Dark Eras and Dark Eras Companion.

                        Necromancy's appropriate for Mummy, right?

                        Anyhow, it just occurred: Doesn't the way Memory works in Mummy kinda make it friendlier to crossover, if you choose to go that route? It should be fairly easy to drop in aspects from other game lines without ever having mentioned them before simply because the Mummies forgot they existed for a while.

                        Also, while I'm sure most of us who will be reading this thread know already, but just in case anyone doesn't we are getting crossovers with Vampire, Hunter, Geist, and Demon in Dark Eras 2.

                          This old comment of mine seems funny now that I want to play a Beast High Priestess.

                          Granted, she also wants to unite all factions in the city under her, but still.

                            It certainly helps, but again the insular nature of the game stems from the Judges demands and the ancient societal focus. Still, as deviation goes, it's not hard to suddenly emerge with motivations in the other shadowy corners.

                              Vampires, sin-eaters, Beasts with reincarnated Horrors, Liches, immortals, demons cycling through Covers... The possibilities make me giddy.

                                One thing that cannot be discounted is the Final Purpose(the enactment of judgement upon the sin your Judge is over) and how the supernatural are often obstacles on the way to dealing with that or are even the targets of that. A wide variety of stories exist in chasing that.
