The University of Doors is the parallel incarnation of the University of Doors in regards to the Whispering World.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Whispering World's divergent University of Doors still remains hidden in its own series of nested dimensions, though all the doors to the outside world are shut, ever since the Earth diverged from the base dimension. It's very possible that the doors were shut because the students and faculty decided to save themselves by avoiding risk of exposure. Alternatively, perhaps exposure occurred before anyone even realized the threat, and the doors no longer open because all that's left within the alternate dimension of the school are wandering whispers.

However, a magister from the Scorpion Sanctum called the Judge believes that when the base dimension split to form the Whispering World, the University of Doors was never replicated, given that it's simply a dimension unto itself. The doors are shut here because they still open on an Earth untouched by the whisper plague.[1]
