Posted the link here a while ago, but I wrote up a thing on the Cosmonomicon on my blog I thought I'd share.

Another post on some cool Spelljammer stuff I found the web a while ago. Jordan Short over at The Mox Boarding House has written up a cool mashup of Spelljammer with Dragonstar, and given advice on how to run it in 5th edition. It strips down a lot of the…

Wrote up a little coverage of a cool one-page demake of Spelljammer.

To help promote the Grit & Vigor roleplaying game, I am going to be posting some articles converting the classic Space: 1889 rpg for use with the G&V rules. I realize that it is not Spelljammer, but there are a number of fun overlaps that I felt it was okay to post this here.

Giff approved.
Called the Triple Crown, its maker Chiappa launched new models of the $2,000 series at the show, attended by around 64,000 gun enthusiasts.

Though not Spelljammer per-se, this simple system of space battles could easily work with many of the more rules light d20 games. This is meant for the Grit & Vigor rpg, but can also work as-written for Blood & Treasure.

Space combat in the Pulp Age and Wellsian Space Opera settings are dangerous affairs. Rather than the dogfights depicted in Star Wars, spaceship against spaceship combat is more like submarine warfare. Its more about long dis...

I would love to see a "Spelljammer" mod for Medieval Engineers. I doubt it'll happen, considering space engineers is a thing. But still, it's a thought I thought I'd share.

Some conversions of the Aerial Vehicles found in the original Space 1889 gamebook. I will be getting into Aether Ships soon.

The setting of Space 1889 wouldn't be the same without flying ships. In setting, these ships completely changed the outcome of numerous wars and skirmishes across the globe, and are supplying a greater rate of trade across nu...

You're stuck on the Rock of Bral, unable to pay for the repairs to your helm, but that's OK, the Arcane says he'll gladly let you work off your debt. The first job was an easy-peasy debt collection. but the next one? Whatever could it be?

Hi all,

has anybody out there played Spelljammer with Pathfinder rules? Are there any good resources available on the inernet for space fights and stat blocks of Spelljamming vessels?

We recently "converted" our Spelljammer campaign from the original AD&D rules to Pathfinder and are now a little bit lost regarding these two topics. We already asked Mr. Google and had a look at the Paizo forums, but without any luck. Now we're thinking about either converting the AD&D rules or enhancing the vehicle rules from the Ultima Combat, but both sounds like a lot of work. So any hints if somebody did this work already would be helpful.

Thanks and regards (and happy spelljamming)

Thanks, done (hopefully you got the invite, it's the "Spelljammer - A New Hope"-Campaign, please ignore the other invite).

The first session went well. (I wrote a novella about it at http://doctorstrangeroll.wordpresss.com). They didn't bite at a few little hooks I threw out, so I get to think of another favor an Arcane needs from then while he repairs their helm. Something they can accomplish while on the Rock of Bral.

The new campaign kicks off tonight. The dead bard and monk are being replaced by a Warlock and Wizard (or Sorcerer). The party still has the Cleric, Barbarian, and Rogue (Arcane Trickster) that survived Hoard of the Dragon Queen (but essentially failed to stop the dragon cult's plan).

Oh yes, the Sword Coast will be DEVASTATED by the return of Tiamat, but they won't find that out at first because the action will start on the Rock of Bral a few years after those events. The existing characters have been stuck in the phlogiston during that time and the new characters are sailors aboard Boccob's Barge and are more concerned with making gold trading than what's going on down on a planet they rarely step foot on.

There's also an NPC with them I introduced during HotDQ as some hired help when they needed a bit more fighting power. I played him as being smitten with the barbarian and the group insisted he survive with them. :p

I plan to use this information...

I also need to figure out exactly what cargo Boccob's Barge is hauling. I don't want it to be something so awesome & valuable the PCs steal from themselves, but it should be something that isn't so mundane they're like "Who cares about this crap?"

I re-read bit of Unapproachable East for D&D 3.5, and fell asleep promptly. I then dreamed up a whole adventure/story seed...
A band of nomads/barbarians (10-12 individuals) takes a tourist/traveler hostage, and my viewpoint character is the leader of a small team (3-4) of adventurers, advising her parents on how to handle the situation. We're travelling through bogs or maybe temperate forest towards the coast, where a ship will drop off trade goods and supplies to exchange for the hostage. Meanwhile, I'm directing my team to intercept/drive off other nomad bands and random encounters, and generally prevent the situation from deteriorating. I leave a letter with instructions for the parents just as we are about to arrive, having to deal with another threat, warning them that the nomad leader may claim that's he's gotten so used to having the hostage around that he wants to marry her in the hopes of getting further concessions from them. My letter strongly urges them to feign offense, and loudly proclaim their intent to sai lto the nearest port and hire mercenaries instead, in front of nomads X and Y, who we've identified as understanding the language the parents speak. Hopefully he will backpedal toot sweet.
 

And that's where something completely different comes in - when I woke up, I was drawn into thoughts about 'bride price' and dowry, and the phrase "if you agree to my proposal, m'lady, my fleet yards will build three battleships for your family..." got stuck in my head, shades of the Courtship of Princess Leia.
So now I'm imagining an Eberron/Planescape/Spelljammer hybrid where massive fleets of flying dreadnaughts, flanked by wings of dragons and squadrons of planetouched dire bats prepare to cross a planar threshold, with my ideas for using the X-Wing and Lambda-shuttle monsters posted before by others with Arrowhawk stats, the Tie-fighter can be a Cloaker variant, the AT-AT and AT-ST ones could use Fiendish or Pseudonatural Dinosaur stats....

I'm working on coming up with a meta plot for my campaign. I'm probably not going to get too heavy into ship-to-ship combat, but I do want to do something with the beholders fixing up their "Death Star" (that big asteroid/ship from SA1: Wildspace) and what components they might need to get it operational.

I've also got ideas about Mind Flayers subcontracting acquisition of food from slavers and a group of lizardfolk looking for a new world to colonize.
