So this is probably very old news but I was wondering if anything has ever been said about this.

The Large Orrery in the POH study would seem to indicate that Gielinor's solar system has at least one other planet, this one having two moons and orbiting its star closer than Gielinor does. Is there any lore surrounding this mysterious world? Is it inhabited, or is it too close to the star for that, like Mercury is in real life? Anybody know?

No one knows. There is a speculation of it being Scaperune, a planet serving as a compensator for existence of Gilenor's system, where everything works contrary to Gilenor (ie fish get caught cooked and are uncooked raw). And Bob is evil cat there :p But it isn't confirmed anyway.

Yet it makes interesting point: existence of a sun, even larger than planet itself - Could Elder gods make it for providing planet's plants with heat and light, necessary to generate anima? Or did sun exist by itself and Elder gods just made a planet near it, being it ideal place for generating anima?

Do other known planes have a sun? Made by Elders, or just used by them for a planet?

And even more - Earth's sun is basically a ball of burning gas. But if Gilenor is in universe full of magic and anima, can a sun have it's own magic, like a moon? So if it's the case, why Elder gods don't use sun as a more efficient generator of Anima and why even bother with building a less anima-powerful planet anyway?

If Sun is a lore anyway :D Yet I'd guess so, there is a light...

The only other "lore" about Gielinor's solar system having more planets that I can think of would be the syzygy that occurs during the Mahjarrat ritual. Would be strange to claim "the planets are aligned" if there's only one planet, right? -
I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?

Is Scaperune even canon anymore?

Also, wasn't the sun related to Tumeken in some way?

There's also been player speculation of it being the Land of Snow.

I distinctly remember a couple years back, someone asked Mod Osborne in a Q and A if it was, and he was basically like "Sure, why not". (Those aren't even remotely the words he used, of course; It's my "summary" of his reply) So I guess it's the Land of Snow now.

Well from what I remember from quests, Gielinor's moon is Zaneris, which at one point was supposedly the gate way to Gielinor. Whatever is or was up there is what the fairy ring system is based on. Or at least where it go its start. Considering that it has life and an atmosphere, that's no moon, it's a space station! :O

So it is not beyond possibilities that Gielinor has sister planets in system.



P.S. one of these days I would like to visit a night time area and see Gielinor's moon in the sky.^_^

You already can!

1) The night skybox used in (and north of) Darkmeyer, as well as in POHs.

2) Ashdale during A Shadow Over Ashdale

3) And as of the Paterdomus update, the new skybox used at Paterdomus

Nice.

I do wonder about this sister planet though. It being Scaperune would be too much of a copout, as that place is better off as a DoD style dimension. Wait..The Astromancer can get us a lodestone placed there! A world started but not finished might be a nice place for one epic sized surface construction hotspot though!:P

It's the Land of Snow according to Osborne (after a player suggested it, he agreed to it).
