Captain Sable’s Logbook: Ninth-Month, 2014 SD

sablepiratequeenAhoy there!  This logbook will post at the beginning of each standard month, in order to briefly inform the populace on the major news in the Known Spheres.

This Month’s Theme: Villains and Stardogs

In any story, it’s the villain that makes it interesting!  We’ll be focusing on Spelljammer’s bad guys this month.  If you want to submit a villain, or a story about a villain, or a bad guy race or anything related, see our Submission Guidelines.

World of Calidar

Bruce Heard, with the aid of Thorfinn Tait Cartography, is hard at work in creating his Spelljammer-inspired World of Calidar, which uses the Dungeon World system.  We will be posting updates throughout the month.


Aaron Siddall, master illustrator, continues his work on the Blood and Treasure system adaptation of Spelljammer, which he calls Voidjammer.  We’ll be posting updates from him throughout the month as well.

Ships of Mystara

AuldDragon continues his series on the ships of Mystara, adapted for the Spelljammer setting.

Toy Soldier Saga

The Toy Soldier Saga readings and likely writing updates will be taking a three-month hiatus as I begin my book tour for my non-fiction book, The Witch’s Eight Paths of Power.  When I return from that in October I will be heading right into National Novel Writing Month, which I may use to begin the fourth book in the series, Sweet Water & Light Laughter.  I’ll be posting more updates closer to the time!

Silverblade the Enchanter

Most of us know him as a brilliantly talented artist and we use his work extensively throughout the fanzine, but did you know that he’s also a fiction-writer?  He’ll be posting updates about his Spelljammer novella, “The Dark Heart of Shar,” and we’ll be keeping you informed!

Report from TotalCon

David Shepheard will be reporting on his Spelljammer adventures at TotalCon this year!


Sometime while I wasn’t looking this summer, DriveThruRPGs listed a couple old-new Spelljammer products on pdf!  We’ll be providing links to those so that you can get your own copies.

The Voyages of Deryn Naythas

Deryn continues to create his vast and involved spheres for our French-speaking Spelljammer fans!  We will occasionally post links to his vastly creative blog and he’ll be posting stuff for us as well!

Lots going on in the Wilds of Space this month!  Hope you’ll join us for the voyage!
