Spelljammer Wiki

SJA2 Skull & Crossbows is an anthology of adventures for the Spelljammer Campaign Setting. The product consists of one 64 page book and one poster. It was published by TSR Inc. in 1990.

Skull & Crossbows[]

The Skull & Crossbows' book is a set of 19 adventures for four to six characters between 6th and 10th level. The adventures have a common theme, with the first adventure and last two adventures acting as a framing device. But the other adventures have been designed to work as standalone adventures. The action starts on the Rock of Bral and then, depending on what order the adventures are run in, moves to wildspace and the Flow. Most of the adventures are generic, designed to be placed anywhere, but one features a crystal sphere called The Dead Shell. The action finishes up with a battle against the Tenth Pit.
