Another World is the name given to the Keystone Dimension after the dimensions split in 1010 A.D. It can be thought of as the true history of the world; before the dimensions split, it progressed to 1020 A.D. normally. In that year, Kid traveled back in time to save Serge, which caused Home World to split off.

=>1010 A.D. -Serge is killed by Wazuki. *Mel is born. *Kiki's father becomes an occultist, and places Mojo on a shrine in his room. *Marge passes away. =>1011 A.D. -U-Fargo and Zelbess attempt to flee from General Viper. -U-Luccia tries to help, but ends up helping the children only. -U-Marcy is born. -U-Zelbess dies. -U-Fargo entrusts Nikki to a traveler. -U-Fargo changes his ship to the S.S. Invincible and hides it as a ghost ship. -U-Fargo begins attacking boats under General Viper's command. =>1014 A.D. -Leah is born.*** ***There is common speculation that Leah came to Gaia's Navel by some warp in time. This is not altogether out of the question, considering Gaia's Navel was always present in the sea of El Nido, and not one of the terraformed islands created by Chronopolis; also, two gates existed in 65000000 B.C. in Chrono Trigger, and Kino was found atop Mystic Mountain as a baby. Perhaps Leah went back to that era and then mothered Ayla; however, remember that this would have had to happen before the actions of Crono as well, as they depend on Ayla's existence, meaning if the theory is true, Leah had to return to 65000000 B.C. in the Lavos timeline or not visit Gaia's Navel at all. =>1015 A.D. -NeoFio is planted. *It is believed that during 1015 A.D., Lynx attacks Lucca's orphanage and abducts Lucca in a vain attempt to release the lock on the Frozen Flame. -Kid becomes trapped in her memory of this experience in 1020 A.D. -Lara apparently perishes in the attack. -Serge's party comes here thanks to the power of Masa, Mune, Doreen, and Kid's Astral Amulet. -Serge's party saves children and assists Kid's escape.*** -Kid escapes, vowing to seek vengeance for Lucca. ***Note that Kid escaped originally, even before Serge intervened to bring Kid out of this memory. Otherwise, this would be a causal loop - that is, Kid's meeting Serge depends on his saving her, which depends on his meeting her, and so on. =>1016 A.D. -Dario inherits the Einlanzer. -Radius presumably retires from the Dragoons. -Radius comes to live in Hermit's Hideaway. -U-Lynx first approaches General Viper about the Frozen Flame. =>1017 A.D. -Dario and Riddel pledge to marry. -The Acacia Dragoons set out to explore the Isle of the Damned. -Dario dies at the Isle of the Damned due to his corruption by the Masamune. *Luccia loses her brother in a freak accident in a Porre lab, prompting her to come to El Nido. Note that this accident could be an explosion set by Norris to destroy Grobyc's level seven tech, the StrongArm. However, this may have taken place in either dimension as well, which would explain how an intact arm resides at Chronopolis. =>Pre-1020 A.D. -Luccia begins using Dragonian robots from Fort Dragonia to guard Viper Manor. *Starky's UFO crashes in El Nido Triangle. *Lynx approaches Porre about the Frozen Flame. -Norris becomes a spy inside Viper Manor. *Orcha goes to work for Viper Manor. -The Dragon Tear is stolen from Guldove by Hell's Cook, Orcha. *An envoy from Porre arrives at Viper Manor about the Frozen Flame. -Lynx begins corrupting General Viper, and sends out Karsh, Solt, and Peppor to intercept Serge (FATE calculated/predicted Serge would cross the dimensions). =>1020 A.D. -Kid calls Serge into Another World dimension. -Serge arrives from the Home dimension. -Learning of Another Serge's death in 1010 A.D., Serge visits his gravesite. -Karsh, Solt, and Pepper attempt to apprehend Serge, but he is saved by Kid.

Invincible subdued. -The three Devas go into hiding. -Monsters somehow abound on the mainland. -Arni residents begin hiding from 'Dark Serge' (it is arguable whether Lynx actually terrorized the maindland as they claim). -Serge's party comes in from Home World. -Grobyc arrives from Porre. -Serge's party, accompanied by a Deva, enters Viper Manor to save Riddel. -Serge's party frees Riddel, and battles Guillot and Grobyc. -Serge's party escapes from Viper Manor, and the Porre military decides to withdraw from El Nido. -Serge's party ventures to Burned Out-Hermit's Hideaway, where the Devas are tending to General Viper. -Lynx, using Kid, stages an attack on Hermit's Hideaway. -Fargo rescues the Devas and Serge's party with S.S. Invincible. -Lynx leaves for the Sea of Eden. -Solt and Peppor confront Karsh at the Isle of the Damned. -Serge's party leaves for Home World. -Lynx and Kid enter Chronopolis. -Serge's party arrives in the Sea of Eden. -Serge's party enters Chronopolis. -Lynx puts Kid to sleep. -Serge's party accidentally discovers the Radical Dreamers - Le Tresor Interdit dimension while fooling with an archival machine. -Serge's party enters the Frozen Flame room. -Having Serge where it wants him, FATE attempts to kill Serge. -Serge destroys FATE. -Now that nothing is guarding the Frozen Flame, the Dragon Gods unite and take it from Chronopolis. -Kid becomes overwhelmed by a past event, the burning of the orphanage, and goes into a coma. -Serge's party escapes from Chronopolis and meets at the S.S.
