On the heels of my "skelenomics" idea, a friend and I were talking about Magic: The Gathering's color system and I got inspired to draft a multiverse/multiplanar scifi/fantasy/science fantasy setting. Since we both decided that I would be blue/white on that scale, I also decided to aim for an anti-Warhammer, in that the main "bad guys" represent Order, in a Borg-meets-1984 way. Instead of being a mishmash of sorcery and technology like 40K's Chaos are, they're fully into rationalized magitek: they treat magic (to them, just a different set of physical laws) as a science problem, and then applying it on tremendous scales.
My main concern with this is, since the forces of Order are going to be running around the multiverse, I have to make sure that the fantasy planes (limited to one planet) scale well with the science fiction ones (several star systems at least). Why would Order bother with small fantasy planes if they can conquer entire galaxies? Why wouldn't they bring in heavy weapons from a scifi plane to blast apart their opposition in a fantasy plane?
My idea is that differing physics between the planes ensures that phlebotinum-powered weapons are localized: magic wands won't work in the scifi planes and hypderdrives won't work in the fantasy planes. In fact, this makes Order scarier, because part of their schtick is a thorough understanding a plane's physical laws and then applying it on a massive scale. Gunpowder doesn't work? They'll manufacture magic wands en masse that can be activated by a rudimentary casting "program," one that can recite a spell thousands of times faster than a human.
Any thoughts? So far, this is all I've worked out.
I loved Amazon's The Man in the High Castle pilot, and would recommend it to any fan of alternate history (and if you're following me, chances are you are one of them). However, I'm going to head this off at the pass now: I won't be doing any conventional Axis victories.
If you are reading Ad Astra Per Aspera and you notice any continuity, spelling, or grammatical errors, tell me in the comments for the piece you have noticed the error in! I'm not perfect, and I'm sure some goofs have slipped through the cracks.
