The Sky-Skull

Some believe that the 'fixed stars' (those that do not change their positions in the sky) are jewels set in the skull of a dead god, and the Celestial Realm the dust that whirls within. Some speculate that there are other such skulls, the universe being a great plain upon which the gods contend and die.

It is also rumoured that one who held to this theory planned an expedition to mine the jewels. Whether this was to be achieved by precisely-calibrated catapult, finding where the skull intersects the surface of the world and climbing it, by dealing with flying creatures, or some other method, the rumours do not say.
