This is a test drive of the alien-geometry. I hope it will be a fun tag.
Okay, for the purposes of this question, the world is flat (like, you still have plants and hills and stuff, just no long term curvature.) We don't care how far it goes, or why it like that.
So we have a world much like ours. We have sunlight during the day and moonlight at night. Plants and animals and such. The only difference is if you move 5 feet to East or West, you end up in the same place.
To visualize this, every object is visually repeated infinitely to the East and West every 5 feet. Of course, these are all the same object (they won't diverge or anything). You only viewing it from different angles. You can imagine sort of that the entire world is like a cylinder with a circumference of 5 feet (except that it isn't curved and the ground is still really deep.)
If we want to be precise, an infinity by infinity by 5 feet space, and topologically glue the two faces of this space together.
I hope to ask a lot of questions about this world, but to start off, let's look at combat.
- If I have something in my right hand, and I can put it into my left hand.
- I can arrange myself so the enemy is both directly to my right and left.
- I can fire projectiles far to the left or right (wrapping around the East-West dimension a couple times) to hit my opponent in the side.
How will combat be different? Both 1 on 1, and smallish battles (not thinking about big battles or wars yet.)
