Canon:Spelljammer crystal spheres
|This article is based on material by:|
This article provides a list of Spelljammer crystal spheres, or planetary systems, created for the Spelljammer (1989) campaign setting. Notably, Spelljammer ties in with three other campaign settings—Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, and Greyhawk—by placing these settings on celestial bodies in these systems.
Each system is listed from innermost body to outermost. Unless otherwise noted, all planets are spherical, with breathable air.
- Oerth: Terrestrial planet and home to the Greyhawk campaign setting. (This planetary system is geocentric, not heliocentric.)
- Kule: Tidally-locked terrestrial body. Covered with the ruins of a humanoid civilization, but lacking any air whatsoever. A magical cataclysm is suspected to have caused the depopulation. Also known as Celene.
- Raenei: Terrestrial planet, covered with Earth-like features, including animals and monsters, but no sentient life. Also known as Luna.
- Liga, the Sun: Star. Has many small lakes of elemental water to keep it from burning too hot. Larger than Oerth, but orbits it anyway.
- The Grinder: Asteroid belt.
- Edill: Gas giant, populated primarily by dragons.
- Gnibile: Dark-red gas giant, with blobs of lava and shards of ice in the interior. Contains a gate to the Negative Material Plane. Populated primarily by undead.
- Conatha: Elliptical water world with two solid cores that orbit around each other. Populated by many piscine creatures, including merfolk and sahuagin.
- Ginsel: Crescent-shaped world that resembles an apple with a giant bite taken out of it. Has an atmosphere on the inside of the crescent. Basic civilized fantasy world.
- Borka: Spherical asteroid cluster with a common atmosphere. Formerly a planet inhabited by orcs, goblins and other humanoids, it was devastated by the magic of the elves.
- Greela: Another spherical asteroid cluster with a common atmosphere, although many of the asteroids bear huge forests. Home to the elves.
- The Spectre: A flat, circular disc of rock that appears to vanish and re-appear as it is seen edgewise, then rotates to show its full face. Also called the Wink. Has an atmosphere and water, but no life.
- Pharagos: This planet, original home of the Forerunners of the Githyanki and Githzerai, is sometimes stated to be part of the same Material Plane as Oerth.
