About the adventure

On the edge of Wildspace 35786 there is an event that brings Spacejammers from across the cosmos. The "Nebulan Skim" is an event where two different Beholder Hive Mothers and their crews get together to watch "lesser beings" duke it out in a race to claim a gift from these powerful tyrants. While the Nebulan Skim is well known not many dare to try their hand at this race due to the large amount of casualties that are bound to occur, but this year you have no choice. Three days before the race your lamprey style cruiser "The Router" was attacked by a rogue beholder doing heavuy damage and turning your captain to stone. Now with limited options you need to repair your ship, find a way to pilot it without your captain, and win the race to free them from their stone prison! Come on down for this 5th level D&D 5e adventure! Welcome to WIldspace! Photo by: Johannes Plenio Edited by: ClaireAfterAll

Additional Details

How to prepare

I can work with players of all experience levels so feel free to let me be your first. That being said bringing a premade character is preferred so we can start the session on time. but if that's not possible I would love to help make characters. (I'm not just saying this in a nice way, I would love to help you.)

What I provide

I work in theater of the mind mostly. Since we are digital I miss the joy of handing out note cards with items and things so look forward to the occasional PM for items and things.

Gameplay details

The goal of this adventure is for everyone to get to experience the world of Spelljammer in a fun fast paced way that lets anyone who wants to take a turn at piloting a ship. Expect a chance to repair and customize a ship, time to bond as a crew, and compete in an intense Theatre of The Mind style space race!

How will character creation work

I would love if players brought with them to the game any level five character. I am pretty lenient on UA but would like to know beforehand if you plan on using any so I can decide if it needs to be tweaked a little for my setting. Also because I am a kind and generous GM I let all my players choose one uncommon and one rare item from the DMG that their character has gotten on their way to level 5.
