Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Starships: Hulls and Space/balls 24. A six and a half metre tall beach ball is hard to hide, though they are ubiquitous enough in the Confederation that they're used as armoured fighting vehicles. 25. If you have the default central deck, the door is going to be about two metres off the ground. 26....

Re: Getting rid of negative Quirks in spacecraft

There are a number of different approaches to this, assuming that the players aren't quite happy to be presented with a fait accompli i terms of transport. You could character generate the ship, let them visit a used starship lot, assemble it themselves in their garage from a nearby junkyard, or buy...

Re: Getting rid of negative Quirks in spacecraft

Going by Trillion Credit Squadron, some things might be difficult, or near impossible to eliminate.

But I'd say it's a judgement call.

Re: Getting rid of negative Quirks in spacecraft

You might not be able to do much about reputations, except move it into another sector. As regards more mechanical problems, get the Dungeon Master to localize the problem, and in most cases throwing enough money at the problem should make it go away. This is situational, as in some cases, it might ...

Re: Question on the 100D jump limit

Gravitational wells might well curve that straight line.

I joked that hyperspace is duodimensional, and that jump bubbles are tridimensional intrusions.

There is some control over the exact length of a jump, otherwise microjumps wouldn't be an option.

Starships: Hulls and Space/balls 1. I could be wrong, but my estimate of iron nickel alloy is that it's about two thirds the strength of Krupp armour plating, so twenty three centimetres would be about six inches, and constant atmospheric braking should make the surface case hardened. 2.

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Probably more of an issue for commercial and unarmoured hulls.

However, that does bring forth a thought.

How deep can this little diving bell submerge, either in our oceans or the swirling maelstrom of a gas giant?
