Rather than continue to derail my own topic, with questions about "Aebrynispace" I thought I would start a new one.The Dark wrote:I'd follow Knightfall's example and go with with Aebrynispace. Cerilia is a continent on Aebrynis. We really know very little about the planet. Cerilia itself is smaller than Europe, and we know almost nothing about the rest of the planet and (I believe) literally nothing about what lies beyond the planet. There's a tiny bit about part of Aduria (the continent south of Cerilia), but it covers very little. On the one hand, it's useful as a tabula rasa. On the other hand, there's a lot of work to be done because there's nothing there. One potentially interesting thing for a Spelljammer tie-in is that there are no orcs in Cerilia or the known portion of Aduria. The "tougher than goblins but not as tough as ogres" humanoids for Birthright are orogs.Big Mac wrote:If I ran a SJ game that went to Ceriliaspace (or whatever the name for the sphere is)
Can anyone help me with an references to mentions of things in space in any of the Birthright products (including Aebrynis itself)? I'd be interested in the following (and anything else you think is relevant):
- How big is Aebrynis?
- Are there world maps of Aebrynis (or at least a list of the number of continents or the percentage of the surface that is covered in water)?
- Do we know if Aebrynis has a 24 hour day...or a longer or shorter day?
- Do we know if Aebrynis has a 365 day year...or a longer or shorter year?
- I presume that Aebrynis has a sun. Does it have a name? Do we know anything about it?
- Do we know if Aebrynis has one or more moons?
- Do we know of any other objects visible in Aebrynis's sky (like rings)?
- Are there any mentions of constellations or stars (that could be used for navigation and/or astrology)?
- Are there any mentions of comets?
- Are there any mentions of any sort of creatures that have come from "somewhere else"? (I know that 3rd Edition D&D lists a lot of aberrations as "monsters from space" but I don't think that was a common thing in 2nd Edition. But are there any unusual "origin stories" in Birthright canon?
