From the first edition Dungeon Master's Guide, page 58: "For instance, suppose that you decide that there is a breatheable atmosphere which extends from the earth to the moon, and that any winged steed capable of flying fast and far can carry its rider to that orb. Furthermore, once beyond the normal limits of earth's atmosphere, gravity and resistance are such that speed increases dramatically, and the whoel journey will take but a few days. You must then decide what will be encountered during the course of the trip - perhaps a few new creatures in addition to the standard ones which you deem likely to be between earth and moon. "Then comes what conditions will be like upon Luna, and what will be found there, why, and so on. Perhaps here is where you place the gateways to yet other worlds." So there it is. Gary Gygax, whom most people consider the father of AD&D, gave guidlines for space travel in his game system. How about them apples? -- Sean K Reynolds a.k.a.
