Actually, a crystal sphere is sort of like a Dyson's Sphere which is probably
why the idea hasn't come along before.  The Star Trek: TNG episode "Relics"
featured a Dyson's Sphere.  From what I saw, it is a large, man-made steel (?)
sphere containing a star and habitated around the inside.  This makes such a
thing more plausible in a Science Fiction world than a Fantasy one.  Also,
Mystara is not a Dyson's Sphere because it is a planetoid and not a man made
perfect sphere.  The hollow part on the inside was expanded and populated by
the immortals and the 'sun' is merely a pinhole sized gate to the plane of
energy; it is not a true star.  I've heard of Ringworld.. what exactly is one?
