Saving Commodore Krux, a Spelljammer Adventure


Saving Commodore Crux


Concealed within the caverns that riddle the underbelly of the asteroid city on the Rock of Bral, a gang of plasmoid scoundrels known as the Amoebros have made an unlikely home. But when a deal goes south, and an honorable soldier throws a wrench in their plans, the gang’s lair becomes a cage for the captured veteran. The stage is set for a daring rescue and a chance to uproot a dastardly criminal plot.

A Spelljammer: Light of Xaryxis Expansion - What's this all about?

After arriving on the Rock of Bral in Light of Xaryxis, chapter 4, “A Friend Indeed,” Captain Sartell instructs the party to seek out Commodore Krux for the next phase of their adventure. In the book, Commodore Krux is simply waiting for them at the Happy Beholder. In this adventure, Commodore Krux has gone missing, and the party must embark on a daring adventure to rescue him. 

The purpose of this adventure is to give the party more opportunities to interact with the Rock of Bral and its inhabitants as well as to build significant relationships with Krux and his crew. In addition, the adventure introduces a plasmoid gang called the Amoebros to add more depth to the criminal underworld of the Rock of Bral.

As always, it is up to you how much of the content to use. It’s perfectly fine to use some parts of this supplement while discarding others, or simply let the ideas presented here inspire new ideas of your own. This supplement assumes a party of four to six characters of 6th level.

This Adventure Includes:

  • Combat. Take on the fearsome plasmoid gang, the Amoebros!
  • Exploration. Investigate the docks for the missing Commodore Krux!
  • Social. Build connections with the crew of the Second Wind in a daring adventure.
  • Color VTT-Ready Maps. Explore the Amoebros' Secret Grotto on the Rock of Bral.

Adventure Summary

The party seeks out Commodore Krux at the Happy Beholder. After speaking with the patrons, the party learns that Krux has disappeared and gets a lead to check out his ship, the Second Wind. At the ship, the party learns from Fel Ardra and Flinch that Krux is being held prisoner by the Amoebros in a cave on the underside of the Rock of Bral. The party infiltrates the Amoebros’ lair, gets past the guards, and learns of the animal experimentation performed by the gang. In a final climactic scene, the party rescues Krux from Ripples, the wicked boss of the plasmoid gang.

With the Crossbow of Portals, if one of each portal is placed directly above and below a creature, does it just loop for 1 minute going in and out until the portals disappear?

I would say yes, although I would probably require that the portals need to be at least 5 feet apart, giving the looping creature opportunities to somehow throw something to get enough momentum to catch on to an edge of one of the portals to stop falling.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
