I did read a great Spelljammer novel once where a kender managed to borrow a Giant Space Hamster with nobody else the wiser. That made me smile. I'm not even into Spelljammer, I much prefer Ebberon and the occasional dose of Forgotten Realms.

The Spelljammer setting has ships powered by Giant Space Hamsters in wheels. I am NOT making this up.

Okay, did this begin before or after the first time that Melonpool was published on the internet, keeping in mind that Melonpool was relaunched numerous times, especially in its early days. Also, if it wasn't on the internet at the time, was it somewhere that could be accessed by the Spelljammer peeps?

According to wikipedia, Spelljammer as a setting has been around since 1989.
I don't know for certain how long Melonpool has been around, but I'm thinking spelljammer was probably around before Melonpool was on the internet.

Oh, I don't know about that. I bet Troop's been putting Melonpool on-line for twenty years before that. In those days when, he had to make his digital art with a hundred punchcards.

That's hardcore. The dude probably helped Al Gore build the internet out of sticks and mud, just so he could share Melonpool with the world.

What's Melonpool?

A webcomic. I never really liked it, myself. I'm more of a Something Positive gal, myself.
