Question on High Lords and Dimthreads

Postby Stewbacca » Mon Oct 09, 2017 1:20 pm

Apologies if asked already:

Can a High Lord drop a dimthread with troops or gospog or reinforcements of any type outside of his realm? Could Kaah drop one in Core Earth?

Follow up: Could a High Lord drop one into another invading cosm? Again, could Kaah drop one into Nile Empire?

I believe so; dimthreads are what the High Lords used to plant stelae pre-invasion, so it would make sense they can still use them outside of their realm. They are costly to use, so it's not a casual thing to do...

This is in fact how Baruk Kaah crashed the announcement of the formation of the Delphi Council, as reported on Near Now News. Storify link below, the series of tweets begins 2/3 of the way down, on June 24.

Book says "from anywhere within its High Lord's reality or its stelae network, to anywhere else." So you can dimthread into the realm from anywhere, or go from the realm to anywhere. Rec Pakken could not, however, create a dimthread from the Nile to the Cyberpapacy.
