Page 13 of the Spacefarer's Handbook states that Athas is off the normal routes. As far
as TSR is concerned, Athas is a closed sphere. As Athas has dynamic and volatile
internal political affairs, can you imagine the headache that introducing spelljamming
to Athasians would be? Not to mention the immense game imbalance that would be created
as a result. A sorcerer evolving into a dragon leaving the sphere, and travelling say...
to Realmspace? Cripes. Not to mention how messy a priest/psionicist evolving into a fire
elemental would be. Once every twenty-four hours, BOOM. Phlogiston surprise.
