Yeah, I need a place to write most ideas about this campaign setting.

The premise is that the real life world is linked with other worlds, with gateways located in places where the fabric of space is thinner. A combination between D20 Modern+Urban arcana, D&D 3.5, and some doses of homebrew.

A diagram:

Basically, there are a couple of gateways in our world that leads to this Underworld. It is similar to the normal one, mimicing it (there is for example, a harbour and a sea in the same place. The difference is how it is managed. There are entire blocks of "slums" where the workers live. The workers are pseudo-slaves, meaning that they HAVE to work to get what they need to survive. No one is forcing them to work, but if they dont, they wont be able to provide for themselves.

The borderworlds are more like plains, each being different from the "real world". They might be fantasy-like (sword and bow), steam-punk (almost anything can be done with the aid of steam power), heavy magic dependant and so on.

All these worlds are linked randomly between themselves with gateways.

As for races, this is at the GM discretion. It depends on the type of game running.

this is a really blunt way to put it. Will have to refine the concept a bit, but critique is welcomed.
