April A-Z D is for Dimensions in the Spectrum


D is for Dimensions in the Arched Spectrum of Realms

The first two books of the Chronicles of Shilo Manor series might take place in Cornerstone Deep, hence their titles, Cornerstone Deep and Cornerstone Deep Echoes, but there are actually five dimensions that will come into play throughout the series.

The Arched Spectrum of Realms is exactly that.  An arch.  It has two cornerstones, two midways, and one meridian cap; and the Shilos refer to each by their position, though each does have a familiar name that the inhabitants know them as.

Below is a list with a little intro to each.  But the pic displays it all. J Thank you, Anastasia Pergakis for the beautiful fan art

Cornerstone Deep:  Familiar – Terra.  Location—lower left cornerstone.  Mirrors Earth in progression and abilities.  Inhabitants are assertive, ambitious, strong, and many seek riches and power no matter the social class they are in.  Yellow sun

Cornerstone Summit:  Familiar – Earth.  Location—lower right cornerstone.  Mirrors Terra in progression and abilities. Inhabitants are assertive, ambitious, strong, and well, you know.  Lol.  Yellow sun.

Midway Deep:  Familiar—Arete.  Location—middle left shaft.  Known for its steep mountainous terrain. Mirrors Moraine in progression and abilities.  Natives are meek, loyal, and strong but struggle to keep up with the quick advance of technology that seems to be thrust upon them.  Confusion, and often times, mayhem reigns there.  White sun.

Midway Summit:  Familiar—Moraine.  Location—middle right shaft.  Known for its deep vast caverns.  Mirrors Arete in progression and abilities.  Pure natives are meek, loyal, and strong, but this dimension fosters “colonists” that have caused their nature to change.  White sun.

Meridian:  Familiar—Champaign.  Location—meridian cap.  The oldest and original realm.  These inhabitants are far more advanced and have reached the point they are able to manipulate the elements, speak telepathically, and influence the senses.  They also live thousands of years longer than the younger dimensions.  Blue sun.
