The Galleon Nebula was a large nebula in Realmspace. It appeared like a multicolored galleon ship. In the mid-14th century DR, it was visible from Toril during autumn and early winter.[1]

GeographyEdit

The Galleon was a huge multicolored cloud about 2 million miles (3.2 million km) long and tall and over 100,000 miles (160,000 km) wide.[1]

It orbited the Torilian solar system in a very slow orbit, taking over 4,000 months to complete a full revolution. The nebula shared its orbit with the Color Spray Nebula, but in the opposite position, so the two were never simultaneously visible from Toril.[1]

The entire nebula was a wild magic region that wreaked havoc on spelljammer ships. It caused ships' gravity planes to shift quickly and unpredictably and caused magic items on board to buzz in a deafening tone. Once the ships left the nebula, these effects immediately ceased.[1]

Rumors & LegendsEdit

Astrologers from Toril believed that the nebula had been placed in the sky by the deities of magic, both as a sign informing the inhabitants of Toril of the existence of spelljamming technology and as a sign of their blessing for its use. On the other hand, more isolationist astrologers believed that the nebula's wild magic properties served as a warning about the dangers of space travel.[1]
