    Submissions

    Hi there. Great to see some Scarred Lands work appearing, particularly in pathfinder format. I've been working hard at pathfinder conversions for this great setting for some time; do you accept submissions and to whom would I send any work?

    I hope they can use some of your stuff, Cliff.

    Well, that's a possibility (after that however, you have the dwarf that tells you that Scarn is an anvil, so you may think it's flat too). I would say the strongest argument for the spherical shape is in the map from the Blood Sea sourcebook (p16) which explicitly show a "polar ice cap", which, I believe, can only be seen in a spherical world
    They did say, in that book, that the different theories were intentionally contradictory.

    I have to say that, I would prefer to see Scarn being a spherical planet, that is in a "solar system" with several other planets. But, to play Devil's Advocate against my own preferred option, I don't think that a flatworld can be ruled out.

    I spent a bit of time studying Flat Earth theory recently (just to see if it could be used in a tabletop game). In that theory, they turn the North Pole into a single point in the middle of a flat circular disk, and they turn the South Pole into an ice wall that goes around the outside of the circular disc. (People argue against the mathematics that supports this theory, but that part of it works, if you accept it.)

    So Onyx Path could do a flatworld...or any other type of world, if they really wanted to.

    (One reason why I would prefer them to do a spherical world is that S&SS never really made a big deal about the world being funky before, so it would seem like something bolted on at the last minute. And I say this as a Spelljammer fan who actually wants to see more funky worlds being published.)

    Nice gallery CliffRice

    Check out the Order of the Ancients picture which is a few pages into the Edge of Infinity supplement haaz, that might help to picture Scarn's shape

    I'm curious as to what exactly was your reason why one couldn't sail west from Ghelspad to Asherak. Just that Scarn's surface is primarily covered by water?

    I ran into similar problems with my game, but I considered it an awesome challenges to explain it all. Like, can you travel west from Ghelspad to get to Asherak? I decided no, and came up with a reason why.

    Is the Disclosure Form meant to be printed, signed and scanned, or filled out digitally and e-signed? I'm unable to access the Artist Disc. Form from the device I'm using, but I remember it having a bit more to it than the Writers form, including editability.
    The disclosure form is meant to be electronically signed, but we'll accept it as physically signed and scanned.

    That's what teleportation magic is for no? With how rich and detailed the setting is, continents had to be on a grand scale to squeeze it all in I guess, plus a titan or 12 would need a huge playground. Most recently, the size has leant itself perfectly to a Kingmaker conversion I'm running on Ghelspad.
