Let me begin with this quote from the recent lore q&a, which pretty much sums up the structure of the universe.

Original message details are unavailable.
The terms ‘planes’ and ‘realms’ are mostly interchangeable, and are pockets of creation that may contain multiple planets, moons and other celestial bodies, plus what we might call ‘space’, and entirely encompassed by the Abyss. There are other, small planes (often referred to as pocket universes) that contain other matter than celestial bodies (and typically no ‘space’), e.g. the Enchanted Valley, the rune altars, the Starflower Plane.


(If you want an in-game source there's the Abyssal book and a shitton of others)

So most of the worlds we know of are not linked by space. From what we know, we can't just fly to Freneskae because it's not physically linked to Gielinor in any way. It's on a seperate plane of creation seperated from us by the Abyss, which is a sort of glue-dimension between the planes.

Why is it then that we can see stars in the sky? Most worlds we know of are on seperate planes of existence so it makes little sense that we'd be able to see their stars, and I doubt the Elders would create any if they didn't serve a purpose like giving their Anima Generators light and warmth. Could each plane actually house hundreds, or even thousands, of worlds? I find that unlikely.

So how can we see stars in the sky? Are they even all stars? Maybe they're all Star Sprites in rocks and the Teletubby was lying when he said most of them were burning balls of gas.

That is all.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
- We call it being a hero.

Mod Jack has said that they don't want to choose between the planetary model or the planar model. The planar model is older and more established in-game. Only the Tuska event explicitly suggests the planetary model, as far as I know.


For a time, I believed they might have abandoned the planar model, especially with things like Tuska, but recent updates like the Guthixian echoes makes it seem like they've come to accept it. Zanaris is referred to as the nexus of planes once again, and Tuska is an interdimensional predator.
