Set sail across the Astral Plane in Spelljammer: Adventures in Space
Wizards of the Coast today released Spelljammer: Adventures in Space, the latest campaign for the world’s most popular tabletop role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons (D&D). A glorious reimagining of the classic setting first introduced for 2nd edition, Adventures in Space builds on the thrill of nautical exploration by sailing through the Astral Plane, home of the stars, gateways to heavens and miniature giant space hamsters! It will feature three hardcover books plus game accessories and is available on Amazon AU or at local gaming retailers.
Voyage across the Astral Sea aboard a spelljammer, a magnificent flying vessel built to traverse interplanetary space. In a realm of endless possibility, Adventures in Space offers a thrilling new setting for both seasoned and new spacefarers. Adventurers can soar across the silver oceans of Wildspace, explore a giant citadel built on an asteroid, and discover mysteries behind the decaying remnants of gods floating in the ether.
Spelljammer: Adventures in Space contains a double-sided poster map of the campaign’s hub city, the Rock of Bral, and a sturdy four-panel Dungeon Master’s screen designed for use with the following set books (with additional alternate-style covers available only through local game stores):
