A spelljammer was a type of magically powered vessel that could travel great distances, even into the Sea of Night.[2] Each ship had a magical helm or "captains-chair" that allowed a suitably powerful mage to pilot the ship.[3]


Many of these vessels (and vessels like them) still existed on Faerûn in the mid-14th century DR.[4] The elves of Evermeet maintained a small fleet of them,[5] while the derivatives of these strange and mighty vessels could be seen flying openly over the southern nations of Nimbral and Halruaa.[citation needed]
