Endgame: This Broken Jaw of Our Lost Kingdoms; Part Two

Those who awoke on their dead worlds have been wandering for hours by this point--if they've bothered to, anyway. There's nothing except death and silence to be found, but they do not thirst and they do not hunger and they do not die. It would always be like that; no one left on a dead world ever dies. However, five hours after they woke up, something changes. A light appears in the distance.

In the tower, five hours after having been locked up, the power fails. There's no voice announcing it, just a few loud warning alarms before everything goes black and the cells holding them in fail, letting them out into the room they've been locked into. Everyone left in the Tower is without their powers or any enhanced abilities above that of a normal human, and a quick exploration of the place they have been left will reveal the door has been welded shut and cannot be broken through. And then, behind them, a light. A rip in space. It's the only way out, though it's impossible to tell where it might lead. Still, there aren't any other options.

Those trapped on their homeworlds will meet up with those who were trapped in the Tower through these portals. They will be able to travel from dead world to dead world, linked by the connections to others they have made, for as soon as one portal closes another will open. And, every time those in the Tower find someone else, they'll feel a little more real, a little less like they've had their abilities stripped from them. Perhaps, if enough people are found, they'll be able to return ready for whatever comes next.

A mingle post for world hopping and dead world travel has been put up here. The next part of endgame will go up at 12:01AM EST on Saturday.

Will the characters from the tower still experience the same sensation of bodily instability as the ones who left the tower before did?

Will the characters - particularly the ones in the cell area, since it's such a large group - get split up at least when they travel through the portals? Or will they be generally going all together unless they try to split off?

Also is there any sort of pattern to the worlds they go through/will some be recognizable as their own/friends/etc.?

Just clarifying since I realize my question wasn't 100% clear and I want to make sure I'm right, any splitups aren't mandatory though? If any of the characters from the cells want to stay together while worldhopping they can?

Can the characters only get to the worlds of people who were sent to the dead worlds in part one, or can they get to the worlds of the ones who were trapped in the Tower, too?

What do characters from the cells look like? I assume they were wireframes-no-glamour in the Tower, but what about on the dead worlds?

Would characters trapped on dead worlds as spirits gain a body at any point or will they remain spirits for the duration of the event?

Will the images resemble the characters at the age their home worlds died or will tower age play a factor?

Can they pick up and take items from the dead worlds with them through the rips in space?

Also, are the characters from the Tower in wireframes/still show up as wireframes while they travel, and an indication they can take things from the Tower (like the items they got stuck in the cells with)? How do the people who are on the dead worlds appear?

So the people on the dead worlds have actual/real bodies?

Sorry if you've clarified this somewhere else, but for characters that are dead in their home world, do they return to their home world as spirits like usual?

Just checking, will the actual number of threads participated in count towards something or will everyone roughly arrive at the same point by the end?
