EDIT: THIS POST DUE TO BE REPLACED BY INFORMATION ABOUT HOMEBREW CRYSTAL SPHERES BASED ON OFFICIAL D&D CAMPAIGN SETTINGS.

It is getting late in the UK, so I'm going to give this thread a rest for the night. If you surf over to my Spelljammer links in my sig, you will see that I already have a lot of links to add to this thread. I even intend to add some stuff to the first post. There are things like "Undermountain Stardock" that some people don't know about.

BTW: I intend to mix in links of any D&D edition. If you are part of the SJ community that doesn't like 3rd edition, just ignore the new links and use the old ones. (I'll even come back and update this with 4th edition D&D links when some become available, despite the fact that I want to play with 3.5 edition.)

I'm quoting my own post, as I need to hijack that post to make room for additional information. I've just decided to change the subsections of this list. I'm now thinking of expanding this from three sections into five sections:
  • The Crystal Spheres of the Radiant Triangle (post number 1),
  • Crystal Spheres from other Original Spelljammer Products (post number 2),
  • Crystal Spheres from Dungeon and Dragon Magazines (post number 3),
  • Homebrew Crystal Spheres based on Official D&D Campaign Settings (post number 4) and
  • Homebrew Crystal Spheres that are not based on Official D&D Material (post number 5)
I'll post more information (and links) tommorow.

Thanks, sciborg2.

I'm going to be very busy for the next few days, but I'll try to get some more stuff added over the weekend. Meanwhiile, you can surf over to the SJ links in my signature and click on the Spelljammer Settings link, to see some of the many homebrew crystal spheres I've indexed over the years.

When I get this done, I might try to do another index. I haven't decided what sort of index yet. (I need these indexes myself, so might as well put them somewhere other people can see them.)

Update: Guide to the Spheres [pdf] published on Beyond the Moons.

This should make this a bit easier.

Thanks ripvanwormer. 8-)

I've also stuck in the Realmspace article on Forgotten Realms Wiki. Sadly Dragonlance Lexicon doesn't have Krynnspace done yet, so I can't complete the big three sources yet.

I know there are a bunch of downloads/pages relevant to Greyspace (including that Gates in the World of Greyhawk one) and I'll have to check through them all to search for any references relevant to space. (I already know that GitWoG has various links to SJ locations.)
