Greetings from Wildspace ... I, too, only recently joined this listserv. so please bear with me if I ask a question that everybody knows the answer to. Recently my SJ group started spelljamming themselves around instead of relying on vessels that is captained by someone they hired to. An interresting question that they asked me, and one I couldn't truthfully answer at that time, was: "How much cargo space should we allocate to food and water as we only have, say, 6 tons of it anyway." They will be using the flogiston in this particular adventure, so stocking up on food and water along the way might constitute a problem. The crew consists of approxamitely 25 members, and as stocking up on 12 months' food is unrealistic, as the food would spoil before that time elapses, the question remains. How much food would they need ( in cargo space and in goldpieces ) per person. What if they happen to have a large or giant-sized group member ? Thank you in advance. Al. PS: What kinds of taxes could a space-base like Bral ask from a spelljamming vessel. What would these taxes amount to ?
