That is an asteroid
|Dungeon In Space|
|This Battle Dolphin with a detachable |
In no way resembles a ship in which you might trek
across the stars. See, the front is on the wrong side!
|Self important Giff is self-important|
|Late Era 2nd edition consistency at its best!|
Somehow I do not think this is a 60 ton ship!
I am not really a fan of "The Spelljammer", especially the way they handled the legendary ship. However, the image of a ship large enough to blot out a sun, a mobile force of nature, there's something to build a campaign around there I think. . .
You have to be fair, if you watched Battlestar Galactica, was there anything that could have been inside a Cylon Battlestar that would have met your expectations? Oh, speaking of Battlestars, the elves have their own, don't you know.
|That skull is filled with Illithids performing experiments on Beholders to increase their cranial capacity.|
For dinner. Not science.
They reused and under-produced an awful lot of spelljammer art, which I think is a key reason for the lack of its success. Jennell Jaquays could have been the key artist and I think it would have gone much better. . .
I was always fond of techniques you can use against the players. Launching zombies as catapult fodder onto their ships, having "drop pods" as modified life boats carry enemy marines to the players ships, and catapults filled with not just rocks but acid or fire. . .
|Brom did do Spelljammer art. Can you imagine what it would have been like if he had painted|
the whole line of products?
