The Dragon's Tail
The Dragon’s Tail does not work on the common assumptions for a fantasy environment. There is no sun only a few handful of stars. They merge and their light intensifies providing the time period identified as day. After twelve hours together, the stars separate and float across the rest of the sky. Apart, the stars are not bright enough to provide full illumination. For an eight hour period, the stars provide enough light for shadowy illumination over full spot distances. During the four hours while the stars are farthest apart and begin moving back together, there is only darkness, the stars a twinkle on the horizon. There are no seasons. Temperature and weather patterns are “average” for the environment of individual areas, and weather follows the core rules.
