Overview:

Looking for alternative spelljammer combat rules that add additional depth add more engaging ship to ship tactical combat while maintaining the focus on the player characters themselves and providing everyone with meaningful actions during each turn?

Printer-friendly versions are also included.

On the mishaps table, there isn't an explanation for what "Unstable" does.

As of v1.5, there is still no explanation for what "Unstable" does.

Great stuff! But on page 3 under "Cast a Spell" in the last sentence of that paragraph you use the word "consecration" instead of "concentration" and I super duper can't stop laughing at the idea of a spelljammer declaring his spell to be sacred....

Hey I noticed that there is a (60 min) in the range of the Mangonel but it doesn't seem to be explained anywhere. I might be blind but what does it mean?

Hi Corey,

This is taken straight from Astral Adventure's Guide where the mangonel can't hit a target that is within 60 feet of it. So the (60 min) was just a short way to reference that the target of a mangonel needs to be at least 60 feet away.

"Mangonel Stone. Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, range 200/800 ft. (can't hit targets within 60 ft. of it), one target. Hit: 27 (5d10) bludgeoning damage."

Approved. That would be awesome!

Please send me a copy too. I used to be fluent in Spanish, but now it's been like 15 years without using it so I'm pretty rusty at this point.

Hey, my friend. This is some great stuff, I love it. A couple things:
- There isn't a recharge on the First Mate's motivate crew. Can it be used once per turn? Does it recharge on a short/long rest? My suggestion would be to follow current 5E design rules and give up to Proficiency Bonus uses per one or the other type of rest.
- There are a number of spelling/grammatical errors (such as "imporved ballista" rather than "improved ballista"). Maybe give it a run through a spelling/grammar checker to get those fixed up.

Other than those two things, a solid 4.5/5. Especially taking a quick look at the additions to v1.3 (I've only read 1.2).

Thanks, Brad!

For the First Mate's Motivate Crew action, the idea was that the scope of the ability is more limited than the easily comparable Bardic Inspiration. The ability can only be used during spelljammer combat encounters, is limited to rolls that the ship/crew make (in most cases would be limited to one attack roll of a ship's weapon), it only lasts one round. Bardic Inspiration can be used in any situation, given to player characters, held for 10 minutes, and applied to any ability check, attack roll, or saving throw. With that in mind, I didn't set a recharge or resource limitation on it. That said, limiting it to proficiency bonus times per day seems reasonable too (and could be applied to other officer abilities too if you wanted).

I am continuously fixing spelling/grammatical errors. The imporved ballista will be fixed in version 1.4.

Again, I appreciate the feedback as I consider these types of comments for future updates!

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
