There are three moons.
The first moon is Estero, a greenish-blue orb which has shadows which seem to shift and move and sometimes a cloud cover in bits can be seen on it’s face. The Mer-Schools Refer to this moon as Nestos, which due to their complex language, can mean “The Guidance”, “The Mover”, “The Creator”, The Destoyer”, or simply, “Home”, depending on the context in which it is used. It appears to be about the size of our moon.
Triterus is the second moon, which appears with a purplish tinge and is the smallest of the moons. In Elven, the name means, “The Controller”. Arcanists (herein used to denote any arcane magic user) tend to be particularly active when Triterus is full, as their spells tend to be more effective when Triterus is active and Some have noted they can actively memorize an extra spell or two if they do it while Triterus is at it’s peak. When it is a new moon, however, arcanists tend to be a bit weaker, and from time to time forget how to cast a spell in the middle of it. This quirk seems to apply to Arcanists, Spells derived from deities do not seem to be effected by this. Arcanists have been studying this for centuries trying to unravel this link, but none have yet succeeded. It appears to be about two thirds the size of our moon.
Letharta is the third moon, a Red Planet, also referred to as the blood moon. It is named after Letharta, the Goddess of War. Her moon is the brightest and largest of the moons, and on a full moon, it gives off enough light that armies can fight under it – and have. Due to the reddish tinge, blood is harder to see and appears black, and people often can’t see the true amount of blood spilt by two armies clashing by night until the next morning. It appears to be about three times the size of our moon.
There are Seven important Stars in the sky.
The first four are the Point Stars. They have the same name as the Cardinal directions, as they are so closely linked: They can always be used to find the cardinal directions and one of the four is always visable. In the season of Groundfrost (Autumn), Starfall can be seen in it’s light blue glory; in the season of Hoarfrost (Winter), Nightcall can be seen, almost pure white against the night sky; and in the season of Seedplant (Spring), Moonlocke can be viewed, a twinkling yellow. in the season of Scorchground (Summer), Sunsail can be seen, as a bright orange star.
The remaining stars are:
Gravewatch, which is always in the sky., is a dark blue star Many believe this is death itself, always peering down, deciding who is to be taken to the Eternal Nightlands.
Fatebourne – This star comes and goes, and only seems to appear during times of great Strife or Upheaval in the world. It twinkles with a slight reddish hue. It was last recorded appearing three hundred years ago.
Magestar – This Purplish star always glows brighter or weaker depending on the amount of magic in the world. Five years ago, this star was barely discernable in the sky, now, although still faint, it is slightly more visible.
