Hello,

I tried Birthright/Spelljammer as an alternative to good old Forgotten
Realms, and I was actually surprised at how the Birthright system works. I
used leviathan ships that held massive amounts of crews, using the Cities of
the Endless Sun (i think that's right) rules for sea battles in space. The
idea of asteroids ruled like provinces appeals to me, but I rather liked
using them as independant and mixed colonies each vying for the entire
individual planetoids (like on the main planet itself). What I don't like,
however, is that Birthright doesn't deal well with the fantastic (well,
fantastic for Cerelia anyway). It's great if you can work it into a
campaign, but otherwise, I think it's best left to the original worlds. But
that's just my opinion.
