International Locations of Interest

This is a list of anomalous Locations of Interest documented by International branches of the Foundation. These locations are generally referred to as "Nexuses" or "Freeports" on the English Language site, although other branches may use different terminology. Locations of Interest from any branch can be listed on this page without using the English Language Site's format, although other branches are of course free to make use of the formats detailed at the bottom of the page. Translations should be linked if available, but otherwise untranslated pages can be linked for reference.

Note that this list is distinct from the Log of Unexplained Locations - Nexuses are generally much larger than Unexplained Locations, and have a permanent population aware of their anomalous properties.

This is an open collaboration - members of any branch have permission to add additional locations, update the list of appearances, or edit a description to better describe the location.

Nx-CN-08 | Danxia Wanling Dongtian

Area Class: Shangri-La Briar

Description: Persumed Non-euclidean or antimemetic space within China, accessible only through a series of rituals.

Nx-012 | Kingdom of Univers'Isle

Description: The Kingdom of Univers'Isle is a floating island in an extradimensional reality that otherwise consists of a completely empty sky. The kingdom was founded in the 17th Century by the inhabitants of Saint-Guérin in Savoy, France, who travelled through cracks in the sky to colonise the landmass. The intervention of the Catholic Church stranded them there, causing the isolated societyto develop their own identity as "Isleans". Their paratechnology eventually enabled them create interdimensional portals, resuming contact with the baseline universe, although there is tension between factions that wish for peace, and others that believe the "Worldians" should be conquered. The Foundation is collaborating with the peace-seeking Unislists to prevent conflict and keep the existence of The Kingdom of Univers'Isle concealed.

Life is slower here, sweltering in the heat of the swamp.

Buildings are connected by countless passageways, roads, cables, and guts, forming a network of people, logistics, and information. The center is mainly composed of office buildings of illegal companies, surrounded by slums and various districts, forming a diverse hell. O/O attracts goods and sentient beings from various eras, places, and worlds due to an abnormal phenomenon called "Call".
