I really like the ships shapes that really gives that SpellJammer feel Though I'm not fully convinced by the background.
Thanks, I also need to make a larger Vodani Ship for the PCs to attack.

Oh you HAVE to keep that original background. That is number one old school !! Great looking ships

Now that TotalCon is over I can post the map of the Vodoni Wolfship. The game went very well considering it was Sunday morning at 8am.
It was a fun weekend. I got to play in old school D&D games DM'd by industry guests Tim Kask, Frank Mentzer, & Michael Curtis.
I know the background is a little busy, but it's to late to change it now.
I wish I was near to Massachusets, so I could have gone to this. It sounds really great. I've written a thread about your game at the Spelljammer forum at The Piazza, to let other fans know this happened. Did you write the adventure yourself, or was it the start of the standard TSR campaign for Vodoni?
A more neutral starfield background might make that easier to do.
You might also want to consider making a transparant background, printing the ships out on acetate and then laying down a starfield on the gaming table with the deckplans on top. If you did that, you could build up a library of ships and have them dock with each other, without any of the background of the "top" ship covering up any of the cool details on the "bottom" ship.

New to cartography and seeking advice - eventual goal to make a large number of maps for the many worlds of the Spelljammer Campaign Setting
That is a cool idea using a transparent acetate sheet for the ship. Never thought of that.
The SJ game I ran at Totalcon was one I created, but calling it an "Adventure" would be a stretch. " Prince Andru's wife and child have been kidnapped and are being held on this ship by a group of Vodoni. Attack the ship with your Lamprey ship, board it and try to rescue them." end of story, the time slot was only 4 hrs, So just a quick hack n Slash. I didn't even write it down just played it off the top of my head with nothing more than the map and a list of monster stats.
