Simple Question: Does anyone play and is there a SJ PbP?

Does anyone play Spelljammer anymore, and if so, is there a PbP out there? Thanks!

no play by posts that i know of. i presume paul is still running his play by email campaign though, and aulddragon is running a spelljammer campaign on discord that he streams weekly (on twitch, i think) and later posts to youtube. there are others as well... i've started a 5e campaign with my sister and nephew, but our schedules don't match up too well. and i know i've seen a few others on youtube.

Jammers, my PBEM game, is technically still going but it has been in an unplanned hiatus for years. :(

I’d be willing to try as long as it wasn’t an incredibly fast game - one post per day? That is if/when you come out of hiatus.

If you want a bit of a Spelljammer fix until you get in a game yourself, I stream my Spelljammer campaign Saturdays at Noon Eastern Time (US), on Twitch.

The session videos are posted on YouTube on the following Monday; I have a separate playlist for each adventure on my channel.

Haven't played Spelljammer in AGES but I'm currently preparing one right now. Won't start for quite some time I'm sure as I'm going to be joining a 5E game as a player that would occupy the weekend time slot I'd need, but I also need the lead time to prepare the props and such I want to have, not to mention the adventures and the setting itself.

I'd be up for a game. I've never done a pbp or email game, but I've played on Roll20.

Also, welcome to the Piazza, ThaWizKid! :D Always glad to get more Spelljammer fans here!

If you ever decide on a PbP, please let me know.

It's a PBEM game, and recently we've been lucky to get a post per player per two weeks. But its been a few months.

I do plan to restart though, and if life lets me it will be reasonably soon.

Awesome - if you have an opening I would join your PBEM. Let me know. Thanks!

Even though Spelljammer is way, way down there among D&D settings for me, I really badly want to do some PBEM here. What edition will you be using?

I run a 1e/2e hybrid game. Which is to say, I use the 2e rules, but some classes from 1e, like the Duelist or the Monk, are allowed. I don't use the 2e options rules, though spells and magic items from those books might appear.

FYI, before the game restarts i intend to start a blog for the game that will host the rules and background information as well as the turn summaries.

Okay, I'm unfamiliar with pre-3E rules, so I guess I can't join you. I wish you luck though.
