The Vale of Shadows (it doesn't have to be called that), is a dark shade of the overworld.
All things that the player has built will sync to this dimension, so that it will literally be the overworld, but with certain new and more dangerous things to encounter there. Say that you build a nice small pig farm, you then make a portal to this dimension and make your way to your farm on the other side. Suddenly all of your pigs are savage beasts that are out to kill you. I feel like this dimension would be a good way for players to utilise common resources for rarer ones that could be found in the alternate dimension in place of them.
The general atmosphere of the dimension will be dark and uninviting. Flowers and bushes that you used to decorate with become thorny brambles that harm you. Your pet dog becomes a snarling vicious monster. Your water sources are now full of a poisonous and unrecognisable black fluid. The colour palette would probably be lots of blacks, greys and reds, almost like some kind of corrupted greyscale shade of the overworld.
Any block destroyed or entity killed in the Vale of Shadows will also be destroyed in the overworld, though the Vale of Shadows version would probably drop a rarer or more useful material or item instead.
