I hope I'm doing this right - never really posted to this list before despite having been running Gloranthan games since the early 80's...

This just came up in my game. I described the night as being bathed in red moonlight and one of my players disagreed. They pointed out that the region directly under the moon is SILVER shadow and that there are a whole sequence of silver related concepts relating to the moon.

Obviously white/silver light is better than red when it comes to seeing at night so is it true that while the moon appears red it casts a white light? And if not, why all the silver references?
