Well met Listers, This was mentioned in both mailing lists, So I am posting it to both, I think we need input from both groups to properly design the sphere. mystara-l@??.com spelljammer@?????????.??.uk Scooby gemjmd@?????.com I will gladly keep info that is posted about it since I am on both mailing lists. Mystara Space ------------- Mystara space is a standard sphere for the most part. It has a large fire body at center with most of the other bodies orbiting around the fire body. Known Planets SUN: The sun is a fire based world. at the center of Mystara: Mystara is a earth based hollow world. It has two moons. One of which is cloaked by an invisible shield and is home to the race of rakasha(sp). The planet has two large holes at both its current north and south poles. These holes allow access into the hollow sphere. But the jammer beware as there is a anti magic shield that extends from the surface (I don't think it covers the entire whole) that will send a spelljammer ship towards its doom in the planets gravity. The planet is not as advanced (Port Ratings of C - [see next rhyme]) as they mostly use crude flying ships built and propeled by flying magics or a powerful Magic gem(Heldnan FreeHolds). The gnomes have several flying ships. Their largest is the flying Balistta. Which is a large platform built from ancient technology(two jet engines). The gnomes have been able to get the jets working and have always kept adding more and more structure to the platform. From the ballista they have many small fighter planes (usually powered by magic - not helms) that protect the platform. The other main type of flying ship is the gnomes air ballons. These are mainly used by the gnomes in the hollow world. Mystara-Moon 1:(Name - ) Mystara-Moon 2:(Name - ) Invisible shield surrounds the planet due to the makeup of the planets core. It is home to the Rakasha(sp). With flying manticore used as mounts for patrols. (Proposed) Alphaita Belt -or- Cluster: This belt is the remains from the home world of the Alphaitians. Which was destroyed by their magics long ago. (In gazzetter time (2000+ years previous) AC 1001). Their world was destroyed leaving only origianlly a cluster of large rocks and debris. But after several thousand years the orbital track of the world created what is today known as the Alphaita Belt. The larger rock bodies contain slim air atmospheres, but little if no vegitation. If one looks hard enough through the belt they will come across the lairs of powerful wizards. These are wizards that survived the catalysm and have since rebuilt strong holds amoung the debris. These are always one of two type of wizards. Either a Fire wizard or a Air Wizard.
