Necklace with large pale white moonstone.
The stone can be activited either by any reasonably obvious phrase, or by simply throwing it into the air.
Once activated, it will emit powerful light equivilent in all ways to a full moon. Outdoors it will rise into the sky to a point where it illuminates an area 1 mile in diameter. It will continue to do so for up to eight hours, until its owner calls it down, or it is somehow snatched by another. This will operate regardless of the presence of sunlight.
It will not operate indoors, and if thrown is likely to fall and break - see twist.
If the moonstone is broken, powerful forces of chaos will be unleashed. A cloud of misfortune will issue forth, affecting anyone with 1 mile (outdoors) or within line of site (indoors). This misfortune will appear as a -5% penalty on all actions for 1-4 hours. Beings associated with the moon will be more strongly impacted - moral shaken, concentration disrupted. Lycanthrops could be shocked into switching states.
Magic within the area will be affected as if a full day passed in a moment, exausting the durations of many spells.
Finally, this event will be visible on adjacent planes, perhaps attracting the attention of undesirable entities.

Worlds near a black hole? Radiation threat, sling-shot objects.
Kharus 3 - metal rich, nearly molten world. Earth gravity, but hit way too often by high-speed collisions to be permenently settled. Almost exclusively manned by robots due to high probability of massive impacts. Has powerful magnetic field stronger then earth's which keeps much of the raditation storms from the nearby black hole from making the world completely untenable. A thick, soupy atmosphere keeps other radiations at bay, but the world itself being rich in transuranics has a lot of its own radiation.
I heard about this in the Shoutbox one day... And I really want to use it. Next time I get a table-top group together for a long-term campaign, you can be sure they will be visiting Corpsefall. I only noticed one minor error, which I have come to my own conclusions about: You mention
"A desert without end, with a sunless, yet dreadfully intense sky above, adorned by swirling white clouds."
Then under The Griz is:
"Their naked skin is tanned dark from the hostile sun that bakes the lands of Corpsefall."
Son, or no Sun? I like the idea of no Sun. So this sentence should be something about their "grey and pock-marked skin, raw and dark from the lashes of the sandy winds." Or something to that effect. Good work!
