This quest is open for review! Please post your comments!
Spelljammer introduced into the AD&D universe a comprehensive system of fantasy astrophysics, including the Ptolemaic concept of crystal spheres. Crystal spheres may contain multiple worlds and are navigable using ships equipped with "spelljamming helms". Ships powered by spelljamming helms are capable of flying into not only the sky but into space. With their own fields of gravity and atmosphere, the ships have open decks and tend not to resemble the spaceships of science fiction, but instead look more like galleons, animals, birds, fish or even more wildly fantastic shapes.
Alien races inhabiting the Spelljammer universe included humans, dwarves, xenophobic beholders, rapacious neogi, militant giff (humanoid hippopotami), centaurlike dracons, hubristic elf armadas, spacefaring orcs called "scro", mysterious arcane, the Thri-kreen insectoids, and bumbling tinker gnomes. Illithids were another major race, but were presented as more mercantile and less overtly evil than in other D&D settings.
From "The Complete Spacefarer's Handbook
Toril and Realmspace
Realmspace is the crystal sphere that contains Toril. The people of Toril are tolerant of travelers and new ideas, making Realmspace a common stop for traders and a base for adventurers.
Spacefarers trade with lizard men and aarakocra on Coliar, as well as with various civilizations on Toril itself. In addition, nearly all spacefaring species maintain a base within the Tears of Selune, a cluster of asteroids that follows in orbit behind Toril's single moon.
Of all the peoples of Toril, only the Shou in eastern Kara-Tur have established an active expeditionary spelljamming force. Shou dragonships are increasingly common in the spacelanes, although their presence tends to wax and wane with the political status of those advisors who press the Emperor for increased space exploration.
