Have spaceships always cost about the same as putting armor on your horse?

Not for a permanently spaceworthy ship I looked it up in my old Spelljammer box set for AD&D 2nd Edition, and the new rules greatly simplify the creation of Spelljamming helms and vessels. And you’...

Dream Experiences and experience gain
