Parallels & Perpendicularities are two separate adventures which intersect in various and interesting ways. They are made by Dfaran.
There are obvious storyline parallels between the adventures, and sometimes there is more direct interaction. For example a chalkboard in Perpendicularities igloo would show up whatever was written on it in a cave system in Parallels. Later a switch when thrown in Parallels restored power to a crashed spaceship(?) in Perpendicularities.
Code Magic Edit
The main characters have magical abilities which can be harnessed through a unique scripting language. Spells are cast by incantation -- with the syntax of a C-style function call.
