It is not the most clever of names being called so by the Doppelgangers who inhabit it. For centuries, most of Magitotum had no idea of its existence. It was only shortly after the emergence of the Betrachs did it truly become discovered. This dimension is found on the other side of mirrors and can only be accessed with assistance by either a Betrach or Doppelganger. The world itself is exactly like Magitotum except everything is crystalized and it contains no life other than the Doppelgangers. Thousands upon thousands of twinkling mirrors connect this dimension to the other, allowing someone to move about undetected. The rules of movement are opposite of the world parallel to it. Every action is opposite of a person movement. For example, if one tries to jump they will find themselves ducking and visa versa. Those in experienced in this plane will often find themselves dead before finding an exit. Furthermore, any being able to bend light are able to move at blinding speeds. It is bad enough that the Doppelgangers can move at such high speed, now imagine a dragon of light like the Dracux could do? There would be no escape from their wrath.
Exploring New Lands: Spiegel
The twinkling land of Spiegel was once a land inhabited by scientifically advanced humans. An unknown cataclysm caused their city to be in ruins and their land turned to sand. It was left untouched for many years, until the Betrachs needed a new home. With the help of the Matahari, they turned most of the land into smooth slopes of glass. Of course, this attracted the doppelgangers as they found a parallel home within the reverse world. Still the Betrachs rebuilt the city left by the humans, adding mirrors to the outside of the skyscrapers despite the risk of attack. Sand roads lead travelers through this reflective land where eyes are constantly watching their every move.
Species Spotlight: Betrach
Dragons that hold their appearance in high regard, these creatures are a sight to see. Their skin is made of colored metal that they design themselves. Panels of mirrors spread across the length of their body. Most members of this species contain either a frill, sail, or fan made of glass to decorate their elegance. They are masters of the strange force that resonates in mirrors. The Betrachs are a type of dragon that came into existence during experiments conducted by the Jiqeeran while working with the fear wielding dragons known as the Hofoka. They were attempting to make the images that the Hofoka display stronger and give them the ability to portray more than one illusion at a time. While in the middle of experimenting, the Dracux, dragons who can bend light to their whim, attacked saying that science was a cruelty to any living creature. The prototype armors the fear dragons wore helped indeed boost their powers but with the drawback of slowing their movements. As consequence, they became bigger targets for the enemy to strike. With a might blow, the light dragons burst forth a blast of energy defeating their foes, or so they thought. As the Hofokas lay defeated, they began to glow; absorbing the very light that had struck them down. Their bodies changed, giving them metallic skin and mirrors that coated various parts of their body. The Dracuxes started to blast light at their enemies once again. The now Betrachs brought forth mirror shields from their skin, reflecting the attack back at their oppressors. The rebounded energy struck the Dracuxes, knocking them down. Filled with rage they countered, drawing their swords, and slashing their steel against the metallic bodies of the Betrachs. They grimaced when they found that their weapons did no harm to the mutated creatures. Realizing that this purge was unsuccessful, the light dragons retreated. The new creatures decided that it would not be safe to move back to their homeland of Hofu which was close to the land occupied by the Dracuxes, Lux. They settled for a land that was once a major human city but had long been abandoned. The buildings were crumbling, and sand littered the streets. The Betrachs sought to turn the barren land into a paradise for them. With friendship, the mirror dragons requested aid from the Matahari, who used their abilities to create the hottest fire known to Magitotum, to convert the sand into glass. The Betrachs then used the glass to make the reflecting land of Spiegel.
