Encounters of the Astral Sea

Wildspace is the overlap between the Astral Sea and the Material Plane of D&D. It is where many Spelljammer adventures happen, in asteroids, ship confrontations and Wildspace Systems.

Spelljammer explorers, githyanki pirates, giff mercenaries and intrepid merchants await along with many other dangers.
