A planet is a celestial body orbiting a star.[1] Golarion belongs to a solar system of eleven planets that rotate around the same star, called the Sun. There were once thirteen planets in the solar system, but a historic cataclysm destroyed two planets and left a massive cloud of debris now called the Diaspora.[2] While the planets are all located in relatively close proximity to one another in the scope of the Material Plane, these planets and their inhabitants are as varied as one could imagine.[3]

Interplanetary travel

Travel between planets is generally accomplished via magical gates which are thought to exist throughout the solar system. These gates are either heavily guarded by their owners or protectors, or else are forgotten in some distant corner.[4]
