I'm bad at stopping.  Admittedly, everything in DIVA /is/ part of one really big
story; each instance thereof just may not be a multi-part story /unto itself/.

That wouldn't be very charitable of me, seeing as there's no sequel.  :)

Yes, and yes.  Devworld is an alternate realm of existence where the 'players' -
known as Divers - access it by projecting their /soul/ into it; it's essentially
the astral plane in game form (though there's already an aetheric plane which is
separate from Devworld, yet Devworld exerts influence on it; it gets confusing).
And yes, you can get trapped in Devworld if your body gets messed up while 
you're Diving; that's a plot point in one of the as-yet-unpublished (and also 
unfinished) stories.

It was created as a joint project by Rosewood and Eris, the DiVerse's Goddesses 
of Design and Chaos respectively, and that's a /completely/ different tale.  
Because of /course/ they have reasons for making it.  :)
