Okay, this campaign idea is one I've had for some time now but I've
never really delved too much into it. The basic premise is that in the
Year 2005 portals from Otherworlds begin to appear across Earth. These
magical portals lead to various planes of reality whether they be D&D
Worlds, the outer planes, or other places beyond the cosmos.
The initial contact with the denizens of these Otherworlds is peaceful
but it doesn't last. Soon, conflict breaks out between our world and
several magical realms, which breaks the seals of magic preventing
magicks from working on Earth. Earth technology also bleeds into these
other realms, but not all of them.
Some of the Otherworlds include my various D&D campaign concepts such
as Time of Ages (major) and World of Kulan (minor). There will also be
connections to the various official D&D Worlds and the Dragonstar
universe as per my Arcanum of the Stars campaign. Regardless of the
other settings, this campaign concept will use the d20 Modern rules.

character on an Otherworld.
