That's my point as well,  Static,  though as I mentioned,  the explanations
(elves & Trader gods) mentioned by you and T. Magann respectivly,  pretty
much help with the consistency thing for me.  I'm using both explanations,
as "theories" that scholars debate amongst themselves.

Only if I get to be the "The Spelljammer"
I've always wanted to be a sentient gigantic Manta Ray that flies through
space:)

"We look on the same stars,  the sky is common,  the same world surrounds
us.  What difference does it make by what pains each seeks the truth?  We
can not attain to so great a secret by one road..."

Victory from the Senate House" (392 AD)
