Unique Ships: Buccaneers and Adventurers amid the Stellar Main

Paul Westermeyer (aka GMWestermeyer) has given us permission to bring you a Spelljammer netbook he has been working on called Unique Ships: Buccaneers and Adventurers amid the Stellar Main.

Paul told us this about his netbook:

Here is my latest work, Unique Ships: Buccaneers and Adventurers amid the Stellar Main. It’s roughly 82 pages long and includes descriptions of 18 ships, some drawn from my Beyond the Moons entries and inspired by my old Unique Ship challenges on the SJML mailing list. All with 2e stats but should be easy to convert for anyone using newer rules.

The ships in the netbook are:

  • Albaithorquduump (‘Devouring Doom of the Elves’): a Scro Navy Mantis ship,
  • Ar’theren (‘Golden Autumn Sky’): an Imperial Elven Navy Man-o-War,
  • Black Deliverance: a former Zhentarim river galley,
  • Dragazhar: a House Cartan Shrikeship,
  • Elentári (‘Star-Queen’): an Imperial Elven Navy Man-o-War,
  • Fisher King: a Company of the Chalice Squidship,
  • Flowfish: a House Moune Tradesman,
  • Flow Ghost: a small Galleon,
  • Hanali’s Sword: a modified small Galleon,
  • Ilidthrokata (‘Elfeater’): a Scro Navy Vipership,
  • Lacanha (‘Spirit Flyer’): a unique ship,
  • Night Prowler: a pirate Great Galley,
  • Nucharnut (‘Sky Bug’): a Scro Navy Scorpion ship,
  • Rebuttal: a Wasp ship,
  • Resplendent: a Dragonfly ship,
  • Oathtaker: a Carrack
  • Silent Star I: an Eelship and
  • Windsong: a Waterdahvian Galleon.

This is a must-have PDF for any Spelljammer campaign.

There is a discussion topic over at the Spelljammer forum at The Piazza, where you can discuss Unique Ships: Buccaneers and Adventurers amid the Stellar Main with other fans and the author himself.

Oriental Adventures and Spelljammer: A Guide

Paul Westermeyer (aka GMWestermeyer) has given us permission to bring you a Spelljammer netbook he has been working on called Oriental Adventures and Spelljammer: A Guide.

Here is what he told us about his guide:

This summarizes oriental cultures in each of the major D&D settings, as well as in Hackjammer, it also includes an OA only SJ timeline, and my Kara-tur timeline. It includes original material on many of the worlds, especially Forgotten Realms, and a reasonably complete bibliography.

I’ve only quickly skimmed through the 67 page netbook, but there are all sorts of useful information including:

  • 8 sections giving you information on Asian content that can be used in Realmspace,
  • 4 sections giving you information on Asian content that can be used in Greyspace,
  • A section giving you information on Asian content that can be used in Mystaraspace,
  • A section giving you information on Asian content that can be used in the Hackjammer crystal sphere,
  • 3 sections giving you information on Asian content within the Spelljammer product line,
  • A section about the Asian D&D content located on the Mythic Earth,
  • A Spelljammer Oriental Adventures Timeline,
  • A detailed bibliography, with details of 12 different types of sources that can improve your Oriental Adventures/Spelljammer crossover gaming experience and
  • A timeline of Kara-Tur

Being a Paul Westermeyer document, the citations and bibliography are a major part of this, allowing you to follow his research back to all the original sources and formulate opinions based on his research, as well as his conclusions.

This is a must-have PDF for any Spelljammer campaign.
