Spiral is the location of the Raven Talon Prison Camp, and was the location of the Rock of Bral as of “A Few Good Elves” and the officially-published Spelljammer® novel “The Maelstrom’s Eye.”   I have extensively mined the geography of Paul Westermeyer’s “Bralspace” from the Beyond the Moons Spelljammer® website, but have ignored the politics because they are inconsistent with my story.

A navigational detail which becomes integral to “A Few Good Elves” is that there are distinctive constellations marked on the crystal shell which form a sort of zodiac.  They are:

1 o’clock – Scavver
2 o’clock – Kraken
3 o’clock – Starbeast
4 o’clock – Kindori
5 o’clock – Neogi
6 o’clock – Dragon
7 o’clock – Sarphardin
8 o’clock – Giff
9 o’clock – Beholder
10 o’clock – Eagle
11 o’clock – Griffon
12 o’clock – Lion

The crew of the Dragonfly attempted to use the Beholder constellation as a navigational landmark to locate Ironpiece.
