Welcome to the newest post on Universe Factory, the blog of the Worldbuilding community:
But what about explaining the tidal bores that rush up the river of the Shining City every evening? Is there a way to explain those that’s consistent with the two-moon system that you’ve concocted?
Oh no. Panic. There is no way to reconcile these tidal bores and having two moons! But the tidal bores are critical to the fishing industry, and the Priesthood of the Two Sisters is an integral part of the government of Lesser Numoria!! Aaargh! The entire world is in danger of becoming inconsistent!!!!

In the bridge everyone was busy checking meters and gauges. One person realized something seemed a bit off. “Captain, take a look at these readings, it looks like our heat shielding was damaged somehow.” Indeed the heat shielding was damaged, and badly, bad enough to cause catastrophic damage.
“What, thats oh no…” Instantly he slammed a button to sound the alarm. “You go and try to get it under control” he was barking out orders. “I cant let this happen” He had an idea. “Get everyone to the higher decks” he continued “Make sure everyone is secure”. Everyone began doing their tasks. Alarms were sounding and everyone was moving at lightning speed. Just then a bang shook the ship. They were breaking up mid air.
