Wondering if you folks could give me input on a couple ideas I've had
knocking around:

How feasible is it to use "Reverse Gravity" to launch non-helmed craft? I
would guess you could do a pretty good job of it off bodies that have a 14
minutes or less escape time limit.... but what would be the velocity then?
See, I'm thinking of having some Grells (who don't have spelljamming) use
this method to launch a real slow invasion fleet on a cute little halfling
world. I figured that once they got spaceborne, and if they had their
trajectories right, they could just fall to the other planet, and use
"Softwood" or "Featherfall" (prolly both in conjunction) to land. Kinda
like "War of the Worlds." *evil grin*

Second, what would be the speed differences for the various airborne mounts
(griffins, hippogriffs, pegasi, giant swans) in space? I mean, they should
be loads faster without having to work to support their own weight. Of
course, they'd need to be specially trained. I'm thinking of having my
Elven Armadas stocked with pegasi-riding elves rather than flitters,
considering the expensiveness of helms. Flitters seem to me to work better
as reconasaince (however you spell it) craft rather than dog-fighters.

Thanks loads!
