The Science of the Pendulum Sun

We have a sun on the end of a very, very long string above a flat plane of a world: what then?

Pivot is the city at the centre of Arcadia, and is directly below the Pendulum at rest. Gethsemane is the castle in which most of the action of Under the Pendulum Sun takes place. Further Out is simply a location beyond the furthest point of the Pendulum’s arc, after it was decided that we were to place Arcadia on a functionally infinite plane rather than confine it within a dome or any other construct.
