	I introduced spelljammers using an NPC. The PCs knew him as a
trader and able to get many interesting and _most_ unusual items. At
one point, one of the PCs was bragging that she could fly, and the
NPC, Gadfly, couldn't. To flirt with her (she had a 23 comliness), the
NPC mentioned that his ship (which was in the harbor) could fly
too. No one believed him, and he wasn't willing to take off while near
land.
	Eventually, they encountered him again while an assassination
attempt was being made on him. The PCs saved him, and Gadfly told them
what had happened: he had been double crossed by some traders, his
ship and cargo destroyed, and as long as they lived they would try to
kill him. He asked the PCs for help hunting them down, and they said
yes. He then acquired a spelljammer and taught them the ways of space
(and eventually destroyed those who had double-crossed him).

	As to the campaign world itself, spelljammers have been around
a long time; much longer than on most worlds, but due to their high
cost and some superstitions surrounding them, they haven't been put
into wide use.
