Strange Life Forms of the Astral Sea: Champions of Interstellar Warfare


A ship appears at the edge of the system, and then another, and another, decelerating from spelljamming speed...

"Hard to port! Man the turrets!" shouts your naval captain, "Scramble rider squads!" The sound of hooves thunders, reverberating throughout the ship as the space cavalry battalion charges out of the cargo hold, shimmering hooves carrying the flying warhorses across the void and out toward the enemy fleet, banners flying from the mounted knights' polearms. In the distance, astral outposts of the orbital defense line turn to train their long range cannons on the enemy ships. The first mate has a furrowed brow, concentrating as he holds two fingers to his forehead. He looks up at the captain. "It's no use, they're scrambling our messages. They've got brain bugs aboard." The captain's eyes darken. "Get the signaling lights up," she says. "Are the mercenaries at station?" "Right here, captain," the gurgling voice of a fish-headed being says, walking onto the bridge. It's a pelagikaarp bounty hunter, flanked by a heavily armed Kyvilian plasmathrower and the glowing flame visage of a half-azer spellfire engineer. "Ready to engage the enemy, captain." The captain turns toward the fore windows of the bridge, where colorful blasts are beginning to erupt among the approaching fleet. "It's time to defend our world. Helm, all ahead full".

This supplement adds thirteen new stat blocks with a blend of sci-fi and fantasy themes, a collection of monsters and characters with abilities focused on space and ground battles in Wildspace and the Astral Sea. It's an ideal companion for encounters in a Spelljammer campaign or an extrordinary encounter in any 5th Edition campaign!

The black font used for the monster descriptions is really hard to read on some pages.

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.
