Thanks. I needed to make a distinction between elite and solo creatures, and "elite" and "solo" ships, especially since for the purposes of computing XP and hit points, ships are solo creatures in my book. Similarly, minion crews and "minion" ships were different, because if a PC climbs aboard a "minion" ship, it would not do well to have it blasted apart in one anti-ship shot. Hence the need for Featherweight.

I can see the need of the distinction in the feather weight as well as making a more powerful ship an Elit or Solo, not that I`m that well versed in 4e yet.

I'm lurking too.

I'm a 3e guy. The only thing I can do is look for typos and internal errors.

...and while I may generally be quiet here, I lurk across all threads in Spelljammer.

Maybe we need a project outline.

I've not got any of the 4e campaign guides. Do they have an identical format (that a Spelljammer Campaign Guide could follow as a template)?
