Polluter was a satellite of the moon Mingabwe and also considered one of Glyth's three moons.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Polluter was a spherical size-A earth body,[1] which meant that it was less than 5 miles (8 kilometers) in radius.[2] The tiny, rocky worldlet was covered in craters from meteor strikes. Frozen water could be found on its surface, but it had no atmosphere at all. The surface or interior had never been mapped out or mined.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The paladin Justin Demonslayer, a former space pirate and resident of Mingabwe, abandoned two of his former magical items somewhere on Polluter so that they could no longer be used for evil.[1]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. The official artwork for the planet Glyth, its rings, and its moons is completely incompatible with the descriptions in the Realmspace source text. First, Glyth is a Size E celestial body, meaning that it is, at most, 10,000 miles (16,000 kilometers) in diameter. The rings begin 7,000 miles (11,000 kilometers) from the surface and end 27,000 miles (43,000 kilometers) from the surface, so they should have at minimum over six times the diameter of the planet. Yet the illustration shows rings much closer to the planet.
    Second, Glyth has four rings, which appear as five from far away, because of a large gap between the second and third rings. The second ring is a tenth the size of the other rings. The illustration shows an entirely different ring pattern.
    Third, the moons Mingabwe and Polluter are supposed to be 208,000 miles (335,000 kilometers) from the edge of the outermost ring, yet they are drawn orbiting between two of the rings. (Haven, which is not shown in the image, does in fact orbit within the rings, between the first and second.)
