World-357.4.GM-13: A Land of Guns and Sorcery

By default, swords come standard on fantasy worlds. On this one, personal firearms (both handguns and long-arms) are more common.

World-418.4.DA-22: A Neozoic World of Airships and Dinosaurs

Local Group-757.4.SC-10: A Universe Home to Alien Superheroes and Cosmic Beings

This was a modern world of superheroes and supervillains.  For those people their superpowers came from alien physiology or "cosmic" forces (incomprehensibly advanced science and technology) from outer space.  The multiverse scholars who studied this world note that it was occupied by large numbers of alien civilizations and filled with starships, and system-scale post-singularity A.I.  …
