Official synopsis[]

Avast, me hearties, and listen to me tales o' monsters that lair in the vastness of wildspace and the fiery streams o' the phlogiston. Great and terrible beasties they be, just waitin' for a daring band o' adventurers to stumble upon 'em?or seek 'em out! Here's a toast to those brave enough to face the challenge!

Wildspace the phlogiston are vast. Even when ships travel at spelljamming speed, a journey can take months to complete. Now a Dungeon Master can inject the unexpected into those days when "nothing happens" with the exciting encounters found in Space Lairs.

Like the original Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Book of Lairs, this collection contains 14 intriguing and innovative mini-adventures that can be inserted into any Spelljammer campaign with little or no preparation by the DM. Featuring Spelljammer monsters from the Monstrous Compendium, these adventures provide challenges suitable for players of all levels.

From puzzle-solving to action and from humor to high adventure, it's all here in this 64-page accessory for the Spelljammer campaign setting. The Spelljammer Adventures in Space boxed set is needed to use this book. So, come aboard, take the helm, and prepare to meet Blackleg Bart and lots of other fantastic adversaries!
