	But how large are they in numbers?  How many ships does a nation
own?  A planet?

	Why would the arcane have to make *new* helms?  Helms are
nearly indestructible, and it would seem that they simply get passed
around, causing the tech level to remain the same.

	How did the arcane get rid of the competition?  Was it a financial
war, or a real one?  Are there black market helms out there?  (:

>This is of course all IMC, and does not reflect 'official' events.

	I think that "officially", Spelljammer is dead.  Almost no new
products acknowledge its existance.

	I think you send "ack" or "noack" for that, but I'm not sure.
