That depends.  Is the Sorceror King himself on the ship?  Just how far does
his influence extend?

And, any ship sent up by the groundlings might have experienced mages and
fighters on it, but just how much experience with spelljammers will they
have?  Can you say next to none?

How much experience would those in space have?  A lifetimes worth.  I'd
picture Athasspace as being much like Athas itself, small groups, jealously
guarding what they have.  Seeing any groundlings daring even to approach
space would likely be reason to be upset.


What do you expect would be the results of a groundling ship, even one built
by one of the sourceror kings, and crewed with some of his best; if that
ship upon reaching space was jumped by several true-spelljamming vessels,
well armed, with lifetimes of experience in fighting in space, who have a
"Blast first, take survivors as slaves later" policy?
