Default Lost in Time and Space?

Got a message one turn that my pretender had become "Lost in Space". Aside from a really bad 1960's TV show, I have no idea what the hell this means. It's been several turns now, and my pretender has not returned from her 3 hour tour, and I'm thinking things have progressed beyond the "danger Will Robinson!" stage.
Anyone have any tips? I'm playing EA Tir na n'Og, and my pretender had all 10's before she got black-holed, as I like to call it.

Haha! Well, probably you had Boots of Planes on. You can consider your pretender dead. He can appear anytime anywhere, in any province on the map. But it can be 30 turns, or 100. Or never.

well aint that a *****

oh well, if she pops up somewhere and gets herself whacked, at least then I can summon her back home. What's the chance per turn of her popping back into this dimension? Anyone know? Same as the chance of going poof in the first place?

****EDIT****

Just alt-tabbed out to post a reply and when I go back in she's there safe and not-very sound. She's back in this dimension, but she is now officially crazier than a ****-house rat, with an insanity level of 20. Yes, you read that right. TWENTY! Anyone know any good therapist units in EA Dominions?
Seriously though, any way to cure insanity?

No idea really. It can really be just few turns or over 30 [I lost my guys once that I put Boots on for the first time and he never got back in that game].

hmm, I'm not sure about it being boots of the planes - there's nothing in its description indicating getting lost in time and space. instead, it horror marks you.

The dimensional rod, otoh, does say you run the risk of being lost in time and space, though I haven't ever seen this. I'm not sure why you would equip a super pretender with it; unless it was when first trying to get to Wish.

No idea how long it takes to come back, on average.

edit: no way to cure insanity, or remove curses, or reduce horror marking

The dimensional rod does cause insanity, so it sounds to me that that's what's going on, and you just haven't noticed the insanity icon before. Load up an old turn, if you have one, and check.

archae:

I am 100% sure Boots of Planes have the chance for being lost in time in space. I think it's about 1-2%.

it would make sense, well enough, just that I haven't ever seen it (and have used the boots more than I have the rod), and it isn't explicitly in the description text, while it is for the rod.

If you're banished to Cocytos or Inferno or happen to end up there in some other way, or if you're getting lost in the Void, your unit becomes "lost in time and space". AFAIK you are being randomly attacked by enemies, and you have a chance to break free every turn, though I'm not sure right now what the roll looks like. If you manage to stay alive and break free, you re-appear in a random province, which counts like normal movement. (in enemy territory, you attack, you can drown in the sea etc.) The game does have special provinces and battle conditions for these three provinces, but somehow you can never see the fights appearing in them, which probably was a decision later on.

I'd say he had boots of the planes on, not the rod, since he was told 'you probably have boots of the planes on' and didn't respond 'nope'.

It would make sense for a unit returning from some sort of void to have insanity. They looked further and deeper and it looked right back.
