Yes! One of the islands I stop at on my usual route is entirely a temperate deciduous forest, and the island of Omaven has a lot along one of its coasts, plus there're plenty of other forested islands. People also usually don't notice actually getting lost, so we think there's a bias towards people landing in the same type of terrain they left from. What's the Unknown like?

In my world, there are some people who have psionic powers. It's pretty cool sometimes, even with all the bad parts.

If you develop photograms of the northwestern lights to show concentrations of Rusakov particles, you can see them outlining the shapes of what appear to be otherworldly cities! The particular cities change from night to night, but each usually shows up again eventually, as far as I can tell with the level of detail available. It's definitely one of the most beautiful and theologically exciting parts of winter!

Oh, neat, that sounds very beautiful. And strange, do you know if your world is moving in comparison to its neighbors or something similar?

I do not! The existence of even one other material world is still a hypothesis, albeit one that seems increasingly likely. Last I heard, the cultural scholars investigating them tentatively believe that the cities' visible architecture would make more sense if they were in different geographic locations, but it will be a while before they have firmer conclusions, and longer still before they can publish. Do you happen to know of a way to test that?

Not off the top of my head, though the university has some way of measuring that I think? It might be intrinsically magical, though, I don't know if it transfers at all.
