Fan Created Spheres - Overall List

Post by night_druid » Fri Feb 05, 2010 7:46 pm

With all the cool new fan-created spheres popping up lately, I think we need a single thread with links to these spheres' threads. Please point out any I missed; I'm sure there are several! :D

I do want to say this as a general comment: I am very pleased with the efforts thus far, even if I don't post on these threads as often as I should. I find it hearting the effort and quality going into these spheres, which are far and away beyond the outlines and sketches of spheres I've seen (sometimes whole spheres reduced to a barebones outline with little more than a fancy name). :ugeek:
More to come; BigMac/Cab, feel free to edit this post with fancier formatting and more links
EDIT by BigMac: List format, with bullet points added

This might be a good place to gather up all the Mirrorspace threads as well. Here's one:

A fanon sphere list is a great idea. It could be enriched by small blurbs (3 to 5 (max. 10?) sentences that describe the sphere. Add a small "sphere stat-block" and we have the beginning of a fanon version of the geonomicon...

Here's a Mirrorspace list. Not sure it's complete, but we can always add missing threads.

I've tried to do sphere lists a couple of times now.

One time in the Virtual Eclipse Yahoo Links for Spelljammer Settings and the last time in the Spelljammer Crystal Spheres thread.

I think that this thread is a great idea, because it focuses on projects that are being worked upon here. Tauster's idea of a summary is interesting, but I think that anything like that would probably need to be done in a short sentence.

I think I will try to bring my own spheres thread back from the dead and try to use that to provide links to all the spheres outside The Piazza that I can find. The death of Geocities means that we may need to hunt down replacements for dead links.

Kinda what I was thinking as well. :) But I wanted to get the list started while I was thinking about it & before I forgot.
Here's a Mirrorspace list. Not sure it's complete, but we can always add missing threads.
Thanks; I'll work on getting all of those to the main post, eventually ;)

Does Mystaraspace count as a Fan created Sphere?

Sure, why not? The purpose of the list is to have a single point to all of this wonderful fan material so sphere threads don't get buried :) Just point out the link for me.

Yep. Basically anything not created by TSR counts as a fan created sphere.

There is a grey area, of "fan expansion of existing canon", and this is where Mystaraspace falls. But Spiralspace/Bralspace falls there too, because it wasn't given a name in the books and there was never a list of all the planets (unless you count that map on the Dragon magazine that someone pointed out recently).

There are a few threads for Gatespace, my central crystal sphere. I intend to post a few more soon too.

Having said this, there is another form of canon, that exists. Mystaraspace could be turned into that sort of canon. Beyond the Moons, as the official Spelljammer website, is able to create new canon. (This would be Beyond the Moons canon.) I believe that all of the pages on BtM that have the "seekers eye" logo, are ones that the Council have chosen to elevate to canon status.

The list of planets is not from Dragon, its from the Immortal Rules. But the name Mystaraspace never appeared anywhere in canon I guess. There were articles in Dragon that did mention using Mystara with Spelljammer though, if that counts.

In any case, please edit the OP with the new M-space threads?

Have you considered using Erynsphere (surely Erynspace :P ) as something to incorporate in your art? You often have asteroids, celestial bodies and other background objects in your art. Perhaps some of these objects could be the worlds of Erinsphere. Perhaps you could create a big black canvas and design onto it the stars of your sphere (creating appropriate constellations that fit in with your local mythology). Perhaps you could even create some (groundling) terrain for one or two of your worlds and make scenes like Cloud Hammer fit in with your planets.
