I love your description of your campaign. When can I join?
When are you moving yourself and all your players to 
the Twin Cities?

Wow! 600,000 km? The only fantasy campaign that I've seen
that's bigger was my friend's Wraith World. It was a
slightly scaled-back Ring World: only 100,000 miles wide,
rather than the 1 million miles of the Ring World. And 
therefore only about 200 times bigger than yours. It was
a Chivalry and Sorcery campaign. I had one of my favorite
wizards there, Gerhard Malquad. He was travelling with 
another wizard, whose goal was to circumnavigate the ring.
In the course of a year of play time, we made it about
200,000 miles.

This brings up an interesting topic.

How many campaign worlds out there are not planets? Please 
give us a description of your non-planetary worlds.

My campaign world (Lorimyr) is a flat plane about 20000 miles
on a side. Its form is based on ancient ideas about the
Earth: flat, surrounded by the spheres of the heavens where
the planets are affixed to individual spheres, and Aristolean
laws of physics operate.
