     One of two reasons for Spelljammer's downfall, it seems to me, is that
     there's nothing to prevent someone who obtains a jammer from becoming
     very powerful on "earth".  What ground-based military can withstand a
     flying ship that can drop bombs (rocks) at will, with impunity?  Water
     navies wouldn't have a chance.  Cities would pay ransom.  Who'd bother
     with Wildspace?

     I recently devised a rule addition limiting maneuverability of jammers
     that goes a long way to preventing this.  But I wonder what other
     people have done.


     (The other reason for SJ's downfall is very inconsistent editing of
     modules and rules by TSR.  When the modules break the rules, what's a
     player/referee to do?)
