Space
"Humanity has the stars in its future"
- Isaac Aasimov

Space is, essentially, both unreachable and deadly without exeptional measures. A very few spells can allow a creature to reach there, along with some inventions. Space contains many hazards and is almost impossible to survive without specialist equipment.

Many planes have space-like locations, but the planes which do are all material planes of some description, such as the prime material, Sigil, Mechanus, and the like. Elemental or energy-based planes tend not to have space, with the exception of the plane of negative energy (space tends to be in the weakly negative areas of the plane).

On the prime material, it is entirely possible to find the Dark Sun, Dragonlance, Ebberon, the Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Ravenloft, and of course Spelljammer, while the remains of the Planescape are scattered across the planes. However, travelling between these diverse locations is difficult for multiple reasons.

Whenever a creature is born, it is assigned a single non-space area - usually a planet - on each plane. If it was born in a non-space area, then it is assigned that one for that plane. For example, a creature born in Neverwinter will be assigned the Forgotten Realms. Once this is determined, creatures cannot teleport through or into space, or plane shift into a different non-space area until they travel there manually, at which point that non-space area is assigned to the creature and the old one unassigned; creatures cannot plane shift into space at all. That is, it's not only impossible to teleport through or into space (short of a spell which specifically mentions this, such as nailed to the sky), but you also can't bypass this with a pair of plane shifts. A creature who is assigned to the Forgotten Realms, for example, can travel to the plane of air by plane shift, but cannot then plane shift back onto the material plane to reach Greyhawk; only the Forgotten Realms.

Apart from blocking teleportation, the vacuum of space is also deadly. It deals 1d4 points of damage every round, while the cold of space or the heat of nearby stars deals 2d6 points of cold or fire damage as appropriate. These can only be mitigated with some kind of effect that protects against the vacuum specifically, and effects which give resistance to fire or cold as appropriate.

The following spells are useful in space:

Space Protection
Abjuration
Level: Cleric 5, Druid 5, Sorcerer/Wizard 4
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 round
Range: Touch
Target: Creature Touched
Duration: 1 minute/level
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No
You protect a creature from the void of space

The creature touched takes 4 points less damage from vacuum effects, and has resistance to fire 12 and cold 12. They do not suffer the effects of suffocation (but suffer from drowning normally).

Interstellar Teleport
Conjuration (Teleportation)
Level: Sorcerer/wizard 9
You teleport between planets

This spell works like greater teleport except that it can transfer you across space as though space didn't block teleportation.

Astronomer Variant: Soul Refractor
In a campaign allowing incarnum, as an astronomer (http://www.minmaxboards.com/index.php?topic=9313.0), you might naturally focus your studies on learning to shape and bind soulmelds. If so, your research into star charts and the many uses of an astrolabe would fall by the wayside.

Abilities: As a Soul Refractor, you will rely on Constitution far more than Charisma.

Base Save Bonus: The Soul Refractor has good Fortitude and Will saves, and poor Reflex saves.

Class Features
The Soul Refractor has all the standard astronomer class features, except as noted below.

Observe Phenomena: You learn fewer phenomena than a normal astronomer, as shown on the table below.

Meldshaping: You shape incarnum soulmelds, drawn from the list of Soul Refractor soulmelds below, to aid your focus when observing phenomena. You know and can shape any soulmeld from this list. Unlike the aligned forces of an incarnateís melds, or the bestial spirits of totemist, your soulmelds represent the indurate essence of scientists long past. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against one of your soulmelds is 10 + the amount of invested essentia + your Constitution modifier. Your meldshaper level is equal to your Observer level.

You can shape only a certain number of soulmelds per day; the daily allotment is shown on the table below. The maximum number of soulmelds that you can have shaped simultaneously is equal to your Constitution score minus 10 or the number of soulmelds on the table, whichever is lower. At 1st level, you can shape one soulmeld at a time (assuming you have a Constitution score of at least 11). As you advance in level, the number of soulmelds you can shape increases.

At 1st level, you also gain access to your personal pool of essentia, which can be invested into your soulmelds to increase their power. Your essentia poolís size is shown on the table below; while you do not gain any actual essentia from this class feature until 2nd level, at 1st level you count as having an essentia pool of size 0. Your character level determines the maximum essentia capacity of one of your soulmelds (or other essentia receptacles, such as feats, items, or class features) as described in The Magic of Incarnum, table 2.1. Each round as a swift action, you can reallocate your essentia investments in your soulmelds and other receptacles. You do not study or prepare soulmelds in advance, but must have a good nightís rest and must meditate for 1 hour to shape your soulmelds for the day.

Star Charts: You do not gain the Star Charts class feature at 2nd level, and cannot attune yourself to Constellations.

Chakra Binds: Beginning at 2nd level, you can bind your soulmelds to your chakras, granting you new powers based on the soulmeld and the chakra chosen. Binding a soulmeld to a chakra closes the body slot associated with that chakra, so that you cannot also benefit from a magic item worn on the body slot associated with that chakra. The number of chakra binds that you can have active at any one time depends on your level, as shown in the table below.

At 2nd level, you can bind a soulmeld to your crown chakra. Beginning at 4th level, you can bind soulmelds to your feet or hands chakras. At 9th level, you can bind soulmelds to your arms, brow, or shoulders chakras. At 14th level, you can bind soulmelds to your throat or waist chakras. At 17th level, you can bind a soulmeld to your heart chakra, and at 20th level you can bind a soulmeld to your soul chakra.

Astrolabe Technique: You do not gain the Astrolabe Technique class feature at 3rd, 7th, 11th, 15th, or 19th level.

Antikythera (Su): At 7th level, you are inspired by the spirit of an ancient astronomer to construct a computation device to help you predict eclipses and phases of the moon. Increase the essentia capacity of any one soulmeld you have shaped by 1. Whenever you make a Spot check to alter the current Inferior Conjunctions, you may choose a different soulmeld to have increased capacity.

At 12th level, and again at 19th level, the number of soulmelds with expanded capacity increases by 1 (to 2 at 12th level, and 3 at 19th level). You may only change one selected soulmeld each time you alter the current Inferior Conjunctions.

Planisphere: You do not gain the Planisphere class feature at 12th level.

Soul Refractor Soulmelds
Unlike soulmelds for other classes, a Soul Refractor soulmeld can be shaped on and bound to any chakra, though each has an affinity for a particular chakra. When a Soul Refractor soulmeld is bound to a chakra to which it has an affinity, it grants you a chakra bind ability as normal. However, when you bind it to any other chakra, it instead grants you an Inferior Conjunction at the beginning of each encounter. Thus, a Soul Refractor must decide between gaining more chakra bind abilities by binding soulmelds to their chakra affinities, or making Observing easier by way of access to more automatic Inferior Conjunctions at the start of an encounter.

Bodies of Tombaugh
Descriptors: Earth.
Classes: Soul Refractor.
Chakra Affinity: Shoulders.
Saving Throw: See text.
Small, misshapen lumps of solid incarnum begin to orbit you, deflecting incoming attacks.

When you shape Bodies of Tombaugh, you gain a +2 deflection bonus to AC. Essentia: Every point of essentia invested in Bodies of Tombaugh increases the bonus by +1.

Chakra Bind (Shoulders)
By binding Bodies of Tombaugh to your shoulders chakra, you impel your cloud of satellites to orbit faster, damaging creatures who come in range. Any creature within 5 feet of you takes 2d8 bludgeoning damage per round from impacts. Each point of essentia invested in Bodies of Tombaugh increases the damage each round by 1d8, and the range of the effect increases by 5 feet for every 2 points of invested essentia. A successful Reflex save each round halves the damage.

Chakra Bind (Other)
If you bind Bodies of Tombaugh to any other chakra, you gain the Orbit Inferior Conjunction automatically at the start of each encounter.

Catalogue of Messier
Descriptors: None.
Classes: Soul Refractor.
Chakra Affinity: Crown.
Saving Throw: None.
A crystalline cap of transparent, blue-tinged incarnum forms on your head; ghostly images of your allies can just barely be seen moving in the facets.

With Catalogue of Messier shaped, you can monitor the health and position of your allies. Choose one ally with a touch when you shape the soulmeld; you gain the benefit of the status spell with that ally as the target. You can choose a different ally at any time with a touch by spending a full-round action. Essentia: You can monitor an additional ally for every point of essentia invested in Catalogue of Messier. You can only choose 1 different ally at a time with each full-round action.

Chakra Bind (Crown)
If you bind Catalogue of Messier to your crown chakra, you can communicate telepathically with any ally you are currently monitoring, as per the mindlink psionic power.

Chakra Bind (Other)
If you bind Catalogue of Messier to any other chakra, you gain the Declination Inferior Conjunction automatically at the start of each encounter.

Circumference of Eratosthenes
Descriptors: None.
Classes: Soul Refractor.
Chakra Affinity: Waist.
Saving Throw: None.
Around your waist twines a slender cord of braided incarnum, glowing softly in alternating blue, green, brown, and gold.

If you have Circumference of Eratosthenes shaped, you have greater control of your size than other creatures. Your size bonus to AC, attack rolls, and Hide checks, as well as your space when using the Escape artist skill, is determined as if you were one size category smaller. Your size bonus for checks to bull rush, grapple, or overrun (and your checks to avoid any of those) as well as the size of creatures that you can bull rush, grapple, or overrun, is determined as if you were one size category larger. Essentia: Each point of essentia invested in Circumference of Eratosthenes increases your carrying capacity by 50% of your normal carrying capacity.

Chakra Bind (Waist)
If you bind Circumference of Eratosthenes to your waist chakra, your size bonuses are determined as if you were three sizes smaller or larger than your actual size category instead of one. You can also move through any occupied square, as the occupying creature always counts as either three size categories larger or smaller than you.

Chakra Bind (Other)
If you bind Circumference of Eratosthenes to any other chakra, you gain the Spin Inferior Conjunction automatically at the start of each encounter.

Classes of Cannon
Descriptors: None.
Classes: Soul Refractor.
Chakra Affinity: Shoulders.
Saving Throw: None.
A sumptuous cape of striated colors extends from your shoulders, twinkling with inner light as it ripples in a nonexistent breeze.

By shaping Classes of Cannon, you gain a measure of protection against a variety of effects. When you shape the soulmeld, you gain a +2 insight bonus to the first type of save indicated on the table below, and the cape shimmers with the associated colored glow. Each time you make use of a bonus, you receive the next bonus until it is used, and so forth. You may also move to the next bonus whenever you wish by spending a full-round action in concentration. When you reach the end of the list, it starts again at the beginning. Essentia: Every point of essentia you invest in Classes of Cannon increases the insight bonus by +1.
