Gearbound Update || In Which I Kindly Explain What The Alternates Are.

                                                                              


It has come to my attention that anybody who's been reading Gearbound has no idea in hell or Hogwarts what the Alternates are. And so I decided that it was high time I explained it. Your welcome.

The Alternates are alternate 'worlds' or 'dimensions' of a specific spot or place. They are caused when high levels of magic concentrate together, and cause a 'magic malfunction'. They can also be caused when opposing magic forces combine in large quantities.

Imagine this: Two warlocks have a fight. When their magic collides, the magic has nowhere to go, and the force of the collision sends into anti-matter, creating an alternate. The alternate could be a mile long, or maybe it's only a foot wide.

Alternates are extremely dangerous for non magical people. Basically, if you are not aware of the alternate, you can accidentally enter it, and get stuck forever. If you are going to enter an alternate, and you are not a warlock, make sure you take a warlock with you, so you can actually get out.

Alternates are popular because you can often find strange, unheard of objects in there that fetch quite a bit of money in real life. Because of this, warlocks generally keep the locations secret, so they can monopolize the profits from the alternates.

And there you have it, people! Alternates 101. Now have fun wondering why Jacobi and Jack needed a map of The Alternates.......
