Non-Cosmere Multiverse

4 posts in this topic

So, we know that Brandon's next Non-Cosmere series is going to be Apocalypse Guard, a series exploring the "Quantum Multiverse" (that's what Brandon calls it) first introduced in the Reckoners series. Do you guys think this series might not only tie in to the Reckoners but also other of his Non-Cosmere stories.

At first I was skeptical myself, fearing that those worlds might all feature some kind of Calamity and have Epics in one form or another, but after reading the synopsis of the series, especially this sentence I have changed my mind: " These real, alternate versions of Earth are sometimes very, very different from the one we know. "

So could this be Brandon's master-plan to include some of his non-cosmere worlds into the Apocalypse Guard Multiverse? As far as I know every one of his other stories (Legion, Rithmatist, Alcatraz, Perfect State, Firstborn, Defending Elysium, Dreamer, HARRE) features Earth to some degree, so it's certainly possible. I hope we get maybe a cameo of one of his earlier worlds.

What do you think, could this be a perfect chance to connect some of his Non-Cosmere stories?

I think it's a lovely idea!  It would be interesting and probably possible with Megan around!  I don't know if he would do it though, it might confuse things.  Maybe hints in small details of different dimensions that suggest that things aren't quite "right"?  Sort of like what Rick Riodan did when he crossed Percy Jackson with Kane Chronicles (small Pegasus in the distant Manhattan skyline).  I could see that happening.  ^_^   Cool idea!

It would be cool, but I get the idea from the few things I've read that the magic stays the same (Same type of superpowers (good Epics)), so it wouldn't make sense to suddenly introduce a world that already had magic before calamity, and something that doesn't correspond to the rules at the same time.

Maybe the Cosmere is one of the universes in the Quantum Multiverse but it's VERY far off from the Reckoners universe, allowing such drastic differences, like the different magic rules, the absence of Earth, etc.
