Using Nexus Doors

The Rules

As a player, Nexus doors offer you a wealth of flexibility in your gameplay. Here are the basic rules for using them:
  • Characters may only enter or exit the Nexus using some sort of door. However...

  • While the doors indicated on the hotel floor plan are permanent, other doors (including guest room doors) may appear or disappear at random. They may be any type of door, located on any fixed surface.

  • Permanent or otherwise, any door may lead to any destination you choose within time and space. A door that a moment ago lead one place may now lead somewhere else, whether that be two floors down into the Nexus kitchens, or across the universe. (Savvy guests will know to take care in opening doors, but anyone can be ambushed by one at any time.)
    • Note: All possible fictional universes are contained within our definition of time and space.

  • Doors may be locked, require a special key or special knock to open, etc. Use your imagination. Guests may get trapped on either side of a door for any period of time you choose.

  • When your character steps through a door into a different place, you may play them strictly as themselves, you may have their appearance adapt, you may play a straight AU wherein they have no memory of the Nexus and their other life, etc.

  • There are also a limited number of door options available within the Nexus that don't necessarily lead anywhere but rather change the character instead of the location. These are listed below, and may be used in tandem with destination doors.

Transformation Doors

The current doors available which change the character (as opposed to the destination) are:
