“Today, you have entered as cadets, mere trainees with little knowledge of the cast worlds beyond and the infinite stars that surround them. Through extensive courses and simulations, you exit as readied soldiers. The vast empty void is your grounds to explore, to understand, to build upon. Be brave, mighty warriors, mages and more! Go forth, into wildspace!” – Graduation at the Rock of Bral Spell Flight Academy
To some, a trip into fantastical space is a simple feat. They’re quite far from the truth. In reality, it proves to be quite the challenge for those who aren’t initiated. And even once one travels into space, that’s not to say it’s just a lifeless and black nothingness. Countless hazards threaten the discerning traveler. Most poorly calculated move and you sail into a deadly trap! While not all life beyond a material world is inherently deadly, there is still much to be weary of.
Author’s Note: More Spelljammer! This time, I’m sampling a little bit of Star Wars influence too. Starweirds, Ysalamiri, maybe a few others. Also, there seems to be an unintentionally recurring theme of racial tension in this post. I guess the theme for this post is part Star Wars, part “racism is bad”? I dunno.
