Here is the DMs Guild blurb:
Falx is one of the planets from SJR4 Practical Planetology, so it's definitely not in Realmspace (which I know was already released under the wing of Forgotten Realms on DMs Guild).DMs Guild wrote:Invasion from the Planet of Tarrasques
From James Introcaso
Invasion from the Planet of Tarrasques is a single-session, over-the-top, gonzo action adventure meant for four to six level 20 characters. The adventure serves as a capstone for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist and Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage, but can be modified for any setting.
What’s more fun than one tarrasque? How about multiple tarrasques stomping across Waterdeep? How about a whole planet full of tarrasques ready to rumble? If that sounds exciting, then Invasion from the Planet of Tarrasques is for you.
Halaster Blackcloak died... but then he came back... with reinforcements...
Halaster Blackcloak, the Mad Mage of Undermountain, always has a contingency in place. As long as Undermountain remains beneath the city of Waterdeep, Halaster can never truly die within its walls, for the dungeon rebuilds the mage’s body on the rare occasions when adventurers “kill” Halaster.
Halaster realized that if adventurers destroyed all of Undermountain (a nigh impossible feat more difficult than even slaying the mage), he would lose his immortality. To further protect his life, Halaster took some of the rooms and halls of Undermountain and flung them across the multiverse, including other worlds of the Material Plane. With Undermountain spread across existence, the task of permanently killing Halaster is even more difficult.
Unfortunately for the mage, a party adventurers recently killed him in his dungeon beneath the City of Splendors. When Halaster’s body reformed, he found himself in Falx, another world of the Material Plane inhabited entirely by enormous, carnivorous monsters with endless appetites. These scaly bipeds are closely related to the tarrasque, an infamous monstrosity feared across the worlds of the Material Plane. Halaster, now obsessed with punishing the adventurers who killed him, began to hatch a plot. If one tarrasque could level an entire city, what could a planet’s worth of the beings do to Faerûn?
This adventure is divided into three chapters.
This product includes...
- Chapter 1. In “Giff You a Hand” a platoon of giff arrive in a spacefaring vessel and warn the adventurers about a coming invasion of tarrasques. With the clock ticking, the characters have a chance to prepare for the battle by mustering their allies.
- Chapter 2. In “Battle for Waterdeep” the characters face-off with the invading titans, defend Waterdeep, and fight for their lives.
- Chapter 3. In “Falx, Ho!” the characters travel through a portal to the planet of Falx to face Halaster and his army of tarrasques atop a stone tower made from pieces of Undermountain.

I've not seen a formal annoucement by WotC that Spelljammer (or maybe the parts of Spelljammer outside of Krynnspace and Greyspace) are open to DMs Guild. Maybe only DMs Guild adepts are allowed to write products set in the Spelljammer universe.
What with Nathan Stewart pulling the Spelljammer confirmed stunt and then specifically saying: "...I've told you we are not doing Spelljammer anytime soon. So don't go there" after the Spoiler Number 5 announcement for the 2019 D&D setting plans, it kind of doesn't make sense for the DMs Guild Adepts program to sneak out a Spelljammer adventure shortly afterwards.
Is this another stunt by Nathan Stewart or do WotC have no idea what they are doing with DMs Guild! I still can not find an easy to understand list of what campaign settings can be published in DMs Guild. I saw a Magic: The Gathering product a while back, asked WotC and DriveThru if they had rolled out M:tG and they yanked the product, so I know that they are confusing the people who write for DMs Guild.
I'd like to see some sort of clarification of the status of Spelljammer. Have the DMs Guild Adepts program broken the DMs Guild agreement? Is this a special case? or is Spelljammer now a setting available for publication on DMs Guild?
