Obscuria is the “real” world shown through Imagine8ing, revealing Monsters, Weird Weather, and Secret places. It exists alongside the “normal” world, but also features “Otherwhere” spaces – strange landmarks, secret cities and other places that Nodds could never ever go.

This “Veil” of “unseeing” overlays everything, and is the true world that the Nodds simply cannot see or fathom.

Obscuria is everywhere on Earth, it is not just an American phenomenon. Interesting Otherwhere spaces have been reported all across Europe, in Africa, Asia, in the sky, and in the depths of the sea. It is agreed that the exploration has only just begun!


Obscuria Discovered

In the middle of downtown Phoenox, Arizona, there is an immense fissure that splits the city apart, North-South. For Nodds, they can walk or drive over it without noticing a thing, because for them, it simply does not exist. But for those who can Imagine8 (Monsters, Monster Rangers, Monsterologists, the unsane) it is a treacherous cleft that must be avoided at any cost. (Because, well, death!)

The Story Town, Iowa has been plagued by a constant rainstorm for the past 67 years that pelts one with a sticky, sweet rain that tastes of flowers. (Rather delicious stuff, if you ask me.)

Bardstown, Kentucky, features a strange and constant howling that seems to come from the sky itself; it often slides into pleasant melodic phrases that can last days or even weeks, and sometimes it drones a doom-sound that drives away all who are not mentally strong. Oddly, it is completely silent on October 31st.

The entire region of Spokaine, Washington has always been blanketed in a green fog which rises from Spokaine Falls. The fog hides the Golgenfot; small bat-like beasts who enjoy fluttering around children and the elderly.

The list will continue…


The wonders of Obscuria are vast, my friends, and must be documented and explored!

Cussin and Such
