Spelljammer: Adventures in Space (2e) is a 278-page sourcebook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition released in October 1989.

Official synopsis[]

Multitudes of worlds wheel through Wildspace. The crystal shells that encase them bob and drift in a turbulent, rainbow ocean which fills all the cosmos. Sturdy merchants, bold pirates, and daring explorers venture into the great, unknown vastness of the universe, seeking wealth and adventure.

The SPELLJAMMER Game puts you in command of a fantastic ship capable of spanning the tremendous distances between planets. Graceful elven flitters, stately illithid galleys, deadly beholder tyrants, and the awesome Spelljammer itself carry trade, emissaries, and heroic action throughout all the worlds of the AD&D game.

Note on the print version: The books, maps and other elements of the box set have been combined into a single volume pint book. If you plan to use the maps at your game table it is recommended that you purchase the PDF+Print combo deal and print the maps from the PDF.
