After some thinking and groaning, I have come to an conclusion. I have to do a revision of my statements in this post.
The fantastic fantasy in that world adds a vector of weirdness that may be fun, but actually warps the tranistion of Forgotten Realm a bit to much at the same time as it don’t reach the goal of turning FR into Science Fiction. It taste to much Weird and not enough Science, if you catch my drift.
Instead I think I’ll go for a Travelleresque universe and in order to wrestle my greatest beef with that system (2D space) I present this explanation:
Forgotten Space is a corridor of worlds “sandwiched” between two empty rifts. Perhaps furthest out on the tips of a Galaxy far, far away.
The scale still has to be measured, is each area in FR a subsector or a system? At first I was going for each country was a system, but perhaps a subsector is better…
I’ll have to work on an example at get the feel of the size.
More Disel Space feel than Magic Steam Space…. Time to dive into T5 again I guess.
