Is there a 2D deckplan for Deepnight Endeavour?

Postby Varulv » Sun Feb 02, 2020 5:28 pm

My group are approaching the end of Great Rift Adventure 1: Islands in the Rift, so if everything goes as planned we will soon start Great Rift Adventure 2: Deepnight Endeavour which I’m really looking forward to.

Anyhow, as always, Mongoose otherwise excellent products show the deckplans in isometric views which I find hard to use in actual gameplay. Is there a 2D version available for download?

Old School, are you thinking about Deepnight Revelation? The Deepnight Endeavour is a custom-designed battleship-sized exploration ship featured in the Great Rift adventure with the same name.

That said, I don’t believe there are any official 2D plans for it. If you happen to own the Element cruiser box you can probably borrow bits and pieces from those plans and I assume there will be detailed blueprints for Revelation too (?). Sure, it’s a different class of ship, but it should work for various areas even if you can’t just place them after each other to get the whole ship - unless of course you choose to simply use the Element plans in full, I mean it’s not like the ship’s going anywhere, you just need a dungeon map :)

There’s also the amazing Starship Geomorphs book (available here) that’s filled with partial deckplans you can pick from for various areas around the ship!

Wow! So that is excellent stuff.

Say, is there a ressources thread onboard where we could collect links to excellent material like this?

You’re right, of course, I was thinking about Revelation. Element cruisers could be used for most it, but not the custom made pods. Geomorphs works well if you’re trying to piece together a section of a ship for a gun battle. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just plausible.

If Mongoose has done away with providing 2D deckplans, that would be very disappointing. One of the most common refrains I see in the traveller verse is that the 3D plans look cool, but the 2D plans are what gets used at the game table.
