Sub-Layers List

What Are Sub-Layers?

Sub-Layers are locations that usually add more detail to an existing level. There are two types of Sub-Layers — "Sub-Levels" and "Rooms". Sub-Levels are levels that are related to their parent level, but are still their own distinct level. Rooms are locations that are too small to be considered their own level. Usually, they are places in an existing level, but that is not always the case.

Sub-Levels Mainlist

Sub-Levels are intended to add lore, or "depth" to an already written level. Think of them as spin-offs of the level they can be found in, levels within the level, or a level between two other levels. A Sub-Level is usually smaller, albeit more detailed — but not always. A level can have as many Sub-Levels as you can imagine, as long as they maintain the loose theme of their parent Level.

Rooms Mainlist:

Rooms are special locations that appear on specific Levels. Rooms typically follow the theme of the Levels they appear on. Rooms are not infinite, nor are they very big which is the main reason why these are labeled as Rooms.


Normal Rooms:

These are Rooms that are found easily, typically only on one Level:


Other Rooms:

These rooms are not connected to any particular level or group of levels; rather, they have no special connection to the other levels within The Backrooms as a whole. As such, their properties are not dependent on the areas from which one can access them — bound to environmental factors or the unexplainable instead. Their attributes are separate, untamed creatures — alien even to the wilderness of the liminal.
