Hortus is a huge fire body comprised of fires so hot that they are essentially liquid. Spelljammers cannot approach too closely to Hortus lest their air envelope ignite. It’s said that there are secret routes through the waves of blazing heat to the strange dim patches on her surface, but that may be pure fantasy.
Hortus is located along the innermost of the invisible crystal shells that make up the Orrery. Passage through the shell is possible near Hortus, but one must be careful not to hew too closely to the sun (or to stray too far and slam into the shell, destroying the ship and killing all aboard).
