Subject:  Re: Spelljammer Crews

    In my last SJ campaign the character's managed to get their own ship
fairly early on.    When they started to hire a full crew, I realized
that the various SJ sources didn't do a very good job at detailing pay
rates and required skills.  So, I made up a chart.
    Note that the pay rates reflect ... a) my own economic standard for
my campaigns. b) the fact that being part of a spelljammer's crew is
hazardous duty.
    Also, parts of this document scroll off the screen.  This is due to
the fact that I pasted it in from a word proccessor.  If you plan on
using it yourself, just slap it into the WP of your choice.  If there is
enough call, I can work on it so it fits an 80 format.
