The Isekai Effect
ForeignersBeings who appear within Muncaelo have been titled Foreigners by the local inhabitants, though this title is also applied to powerful wizards from other parts of the Brievary, including the famed Raureif Viatorem. these beings often share strange and different customs and cultures related to their worlds, that sometimes even go against the norms of the native humanoids of Mucnaelo.
OriginsAs has recently been discovered by the ancient sapphire dragon Squall, The Thundercall, a strange arcane gate that isn't completely manifested, and has a damaged world corridor has engulfed the entirety of Muncaelo, acting as a vacuum, and connecting to random worlds and taking inhabitants, treasures, and structures from them and leaving them within the realm. While Squall has yet to discover the origin of this gate, or how to properly shut it down, he has grown weary that it may lead to more problems with the world, including the possibility of fusing with another world, or having stuff taken, and possibly having the planet itself torn asunder, with parts of the planet being lost throughout the multiverse.
The effects of worldshifting, and its outright cause are not visually seen, except for during the process of the phenomenon, and temporarily afterward, for a time period comparable to a regional effect dissipating. During the process of a being or structure worldhifting, the creature/ structure will start to appear within the realm of Muncaelo, slowly fading into reality, appearing as a shadow, followed by a translucent form of themselves, and eventually, solidifying as if they/ it was always within Muncaelo. Creatures that are world slipping often are not aware of their presence within Muncaelo until they have fully manifested into their new realm, with the event appearing to them as if their surroundings changed within a millisecond, while their actions in their homeworld were mirrored by their phantasmal self within Muncaelo.
The visual effects of a creature's worldshifting can take place anywhere between a couple of minutes to several hours. During such time, the creature and surrounding area radiate extreme levels of Conjuration magic, apparent to any creature who can see magic or has cast detect magic upon themselves. This Conjuration radiation lasts for a period of several weeks upon the place where the creature worldshifted, though its effects wear off eventually. It is theorized that while the Conjuration radiation is present, a creature may be able to find a way home, or more creatures may follow them to Muncaelo.
The effects of worldshiftng only occurs within the realm of Muncaelo, and the other two realms of the Brievary are not subject to its effects, though due to the realms proximities, foreigners can easily move about, spreading out to the farthest reaches of the Brievary. Beyond this, Most cases of people worldshifting tend to be marked within the North-Eastern part of the Vaupane Continent, though it is believed that such effects are not limited to this region and that the effects of the worldshifting phenomenon are global.
