It was one of my spheres.  It only had 3 planets in it (though none had less
than 4 moons).  The PC (an elf named Carathian) was born on one of the moons
and left when he was young, though he would never tell anybody why.  Years
later, he and his party were searching for an artifact of good (my SJ
equivelant of the Rod of 7 parts) and had to search through the spheres to
find the pieces.  Naturally, the forces of evil were out to destroy the
artifact, so, in an alliance with unknown (to the PCs) group, the forces of
evil scoured the sphere (which held the last piece of the 9 part artifact,
the LG one, each side had 4 already, and the last would tip the scales) by
using the ClockWork Horrors, controlled by said Unknown Forces.  Well, the
CHs found the artifact piece, but only after reducing most of the planets
and moons to ash. The piece was in the heart of the sun, which a group of
evil fire creatures (used the stats from an old Dragon Magazine, just
changed the alignment) destroyed with help from "the Powers of Evil", this
had quite a disastrous effect on the rest of the sphere (can you say
"cinders"?  I knew you could).  Well, suffice it to say, the heroes won out
in the end, and banished the forces of evil to a different plane, where they
were forced to suffer for all eternity (I think they had to watch Barney
tapes, but it was never made clear. <JK>)
