Dimensions are distinct, separate, and vastly different planes of existence. Aetheria is home to exactly 255 dimensions (most after 99 are null), from the relatively peaceful Overworld, (Dimension 1), to the terrifying Land of the Dead (Dimension 99). Before the ages of the Great Wars, Terrarians inhabited both the Nether and Overworld dimensions. Their ruins are still visible today, manifesting in Nether Fortresses and ruined tunnels deep below the Earth.
When the time of the Great War struck, the armies of Herobrine tore through the land, ending countless generations of cultural heritage for many Terrarians. They took refuge in a plethora of other dimensions, slowly evolving into mutated parodies of their former human forms, such as the Endermen who were once humans that took refuge in the End.
The animals, brought into the different dimensions by the ancient humans, gradually evolved, becoming the different races that now inhabit Aetheria.
List of Dimensions

|4||The Void||The Void is not a dimension per se, but rather the space below bedrock. It is home to dangerous monsters, pools of magic, and crystal plants. It is also home to the race of evolved villagers: the Mycons.||Mycons|
|5||The Aether||The Aether is a collection of islands floating in a starry void, much like the outlying islands of the End.||Sahagan|

|14||Icerahn/Icehollow||Icerahn is a dimension of eternal night. The sun never rises, leaving the dimension a cold and barren wasteland. Arches of ice and crystalline rock grace the land. This dimension is home to the citadel of Herobrine and was once a bastion of the Knights of Aetheria.||Herobrine|
|99||Land of the Dead||Not much is known about The Land of the Dead, but it is the dimension where beings go after they die. There are seemingly no other ways to get to this dimension.||All dead souls, including dead Aetherians and Terrarians|
|Arcadia||A divine sub-realm of eternal light. Upon a vast floating isle is the Silver Palace, Entity's home. Some benevolent Immortals can be found here, who are able to observe and even communicate with mortals in any other dimension through the use of floating crystalline panes. (Although both good and evil Immortals are prohibited by Divine Law from directly interacting with lesser beings, they are able to influence them - in a very limited capacity - through dreams, visions and emissaries.) Powerful beings that directly serve the good Immortals can be found here as well.
The dictionary definition of the name is A region or scene of simple pleasure and quiet.
|Entity possibly used to live here.|
|Pandemonium||Like Arcadia, although a divine sub-realm of eternal darkness. It consists of a massive cavern with a black palace in the center, home to beings that can be thought of as malevolent Immortals. Powerful beings live here as servants, including efreeti, pit fiends, succubi and greater demons. The cavern is filled with howling wind that proves fatal to mortal beings within seconds unless protected.
The dictionary definition of the name is: A wild uproar (because of anger or excitement in a crowd of people)
Succubi and powerful demons.
