We know that the Sundering stripped the Essence from Earth and shattered Time like a mirror, but did it effect the other planets of the solar system? Could the asteroid belt have been a world held together by dwarven magic so thy could mine it safely. But when the Sundering came the planet shattered from being over mined and the spell holding it together getting stripped...

Just a random thought I had today.

The current standard model of the early solar system, the Nice model (named after the French city, not that the model is nice) has significant changes in the gas giant's orbits about 4 billion years ago, causing the Late Heavy Bombardment. Neptune and Uranus may have swapped places, although that seems less likely than not.

Court, are you really concerned about scientific rigour in a fictional universe with magic elves, mutant superheroes and impossible pseudoscientific devisors?

But that's the best bit, when authors can convince their readers that, yes, the elves actually do make sense. I mean, that's pretty much the whole Lovecraft schtick. "Horror, but now with scientific plausibility*!"

(* For early 20th century not too closely examined values of scientific plausibility.)

No, I am thinking that since the planets actually did move, you can say that elves caused the planets to move, and look, they really did move.

I'm thinking that I'll throw it into one of my elseworlds and let the reader speculate if it also applies to the Prime-verse.

I like it. Sounds like a good mid-level plotline for Gen 3... mutant 'powered' space armor (and intraplanatary ships) with asteroid field development and alien invasion... and they get out there and start finding pre-Sundering Age ruins still somewhat intact from being in vacuum in space.

Well, that and humans are unable to fathom the cthonian depths of what a Great Old one even thinks.
