    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.

                  Just like some wallets...

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