Woodhaven is a celestial body that orbits the light purple sun in the crystal sphere known as Herospace. It is the only spherical earth body in orbit around the light purple sun.[1][2]


Woodhaven is the most beautiful planet in Herospace. Rolling, grassy hills give way to large and abundant forests, where wildlife is both plentiful and dazzling. Woodhaven’s climate is generally fair throughout the planet and varies little from one hemisphere to the other. Most strange of all, and obviously the effect of powerful magic, the purple sun of Woodhaven seems to rise at the same time everywhere on the planet. It is because of this inexplicable phenomenon that the inhabitants of the planet are bound together as one people.[2]


The purpose and intent of Herospace is to provide those remarkable individuals revered as heroes by the common man the opportunity to live relatively undisturbed lives among peers with similar world views. As such, Woodhaven is reserved for heroes of Chaotic Good alignment.

Of the nine planets of Herospace, Woodhaven’s population is the most familial in nature. Perhaps this can also be attributed to the tremendous life span of the elves who are Woodhaven’s primary inhabitants. Famously, Alustriel, High Lady of Silverymoon from Toril in Realmspace comes to Woodhaven on occasion when she feels the need to take a vacation from her duties of state.

Like all planets in Herospace, Woodhaven does not have a large or dominant governing body. Instead the Rational Order of Magistrates responds to all disturbances on Woodhaven and helps to resolve any difficulties. The Order maintains a naval outpost on all planets in Herospace, and during times of difficulty will deploy emissaries from these outposts. As might be expected, the Order has had to interfere very little in the affairs of this world.[2]

Crystal Shards[]

When a person (and his or her spouse and their offspring) is granted access to Woodhaven, they are given a shard of purple crystal, similar in hue to the light purple sun. This shard grants access to the atmosphere of Woodhaven, allowing the bearer and their party to pass through an impenetrable force field and land on the planet. If an inhabitant has a problem, they may communicate with the Order via their shard of crystal.[3]
