Okay, I know I have spent a lot of time with the GM’s Dictionary focusing on things that are as likely, if not more likely, to come up in fantasy settings. This month, however, I am ready to introduce some stuff that will be most useful in a science fiction setting. Perhaps you may find it effective in your fantasy world, but either way I hope you find these space-related definitions of use at the table! And to help in this effort, I will include a Euler diagram below because it is an awesome visual reference.
These small bodies exist near the outer planets and have unstable orbits. These generally exhibit features like those found in both asteroids and comets. Technicality of centaurs depends on who you ask and different orbital definitions.
This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
