X is for the X-th
dimension

The X-th dimension is a postulated
extradimensional realm where, according to some pseudo-scholars and doomsday
cults, a massive army of alien creatures is being raised to carry out an
invasion of the known planes. Proponents of this theory believe only a finite
numbers of alternate dimensions exist, the X-th one being as of yet unexplored
or unreachable by commonly practiced aetherial magick. This has however not
stopped various self-professed prophets and other supernaturally or narcotically
inspired soothsayers to make unverifiable claims and write esoteric treatises
concerning the nature and particulars of the hypothetical X-th dimension.

Of considerably greater value and
importance on said topic are the writings of the renowned sage Paronax, who
theoreticized on the subject in his

*Catalogica Planorum*, the definitive work on aetheromancy and portal summoning. In his magickal calculus Paronax assumed the existence of an X-th dimension to compensate for the unexpected and inexplicable discrepancies that his otherwise sound arithmetic produced. He deduced that if one were to use a sufficiently powerful source of energy, one could penetrate the border between this world and the X-th dimension. Such a feat would require extraordinary amounts of power however; something only a few known artifacts would prove capable of, and the risk of irreparable harm to it would be great. The costs of conducting a practical experiment thus were considered too high, and decades after Paronax wrote his*Catalogica*his theory remains untried.
Never heard of the X-th demension. But, I'll bet my roll playing son-in-law has heard of it.

ReplyDeleteGreat choice for 'X".
