Design me A Wyvern

Postby JMISBEST » Thu Apr 25, 2019 10:06 am

Can someone please design me A 600 ton Wyvern to use in Pirates of Drinax?. I'm very out of practise at doing ships that small. Please and thank you

If you want to develop your ship designer skill : read the rules, try to create one, ask questions if any.
Then you will have practice and won't ask others to do it for you....

Glue 200 or 300 tonners together until you get a 600 ton ship, then delete all of the spare pilots. The Mongoose design system scales linearly in this range so it'll be close enough that no-one will notice unless they deliberately check.

If they do, it won't be out by more than a few percent and quite easy to fix by deleting something.

You'll have a bigger bridge and more expensive computer but just call those backups or turn them into cargo.

I’d just use a Corsair from Pirates of Drinax book 3, p.26-28. It’s the right size and according to its description it was designed as a raider/pocket warship, so it sounds like a good fit to me.

Possibly arm it like the Lionsbane (PoD book 1, p.143).
