I was a guest on Dragon Talk, the official D&D podcast! You can hear host Shelly Mazzanoble and I discuss tips on running Spelljammer on episode #398.
As you can see from the many articles about Spelljammer on this site, I am a huge fan of the setting! On Dragon Talk I shared why this setting resonates for me, and how I find it provides a lot of flexibility for Dungeon Masters – we can finally use anything on our gaming shelf and toss it into a Spelljammer campaign.
I cover the areas I consider key for DMing a Spelljammer campaign, including how I approach ship combat. I can’t share much now, but I was recently involved in a project where I worked on ship combat rules. I am super excited for the project to be announced, and I think it will provide Spelljammer DMs with many fun options.
Here is a quick outline of what we covered:
