In a message dated 96-09-20 17:41:28 EDT, you write:

<< However,  I agree that the speed of SJ vessels puts a serious damper
 on non-SJ objects/creatures intercepting them.  because I wanted to insure
 that SJ wouldn't have logicilly upset the balance of power in my Realms
 campaign,  I changed SJ speeds within in air envelope to 12" per SR point.
 Moving faster is possible,  but the ship might rip apart (construction
 techniques not being up to the speeds SJ helms can reach)  This makes
 things a bit more equal (an SR 3 ship has a move of 36" which is equal to a
 Hippogriff and slower than a Pegasus).  All IMHO,  of course:) >>

  Some of the bye planes reached speeds of up to 230 miles per hour (if I
rember right) and some winds can reach speeds of up to 280 miles per hour so
if normal saling ships can withstand that kind of stress spelljammers shold
be able to handle slower speeds with little or no problimb. Rember that the
ability to build a spelljamming ship requires its own proficency. So if an SR
raiting of 9 = 150mph then it should be designed to handle that kind of
stress. But I can understand your frame of thinking because game balance is
important. But think the ship is going to much faster and have better weapons
and just like the WW! planes they are going to need to set up for run's just
like the planes. While the flying creatures don't need anywhere neer as much
space to do the same thing. There would be tactical advanatages to both. The
ship would do best at a high allitude with very little to get in its way
besides the enemy. While a flying creature would do best at the lower
alitudes where its greater maneuverbilty would all the creature to litury fly
rings around the ship. As both know where the advanatge lies the trick is to
"bring the enemy to you".
