Hm... seems like you're using IE. Can I suggest a better browser, such as Firefox, Chrome or Opera? There are other choices too.

If you wanna stick with IE, or can't switch, I'll warn you right now, while most of this site should work with IE, stuff might come up buggy, so you might not enjoy it as much...

Hey guys, don't forget your empty credsticks: it is part of your equipment after all. :P
Aug 11, 2015 2:03 pm
Here is the schematics and floorplans of the ship Ronin:

(the following is the description of the ship taken from the pdf, and slightly modified. Dex can, and probably will apply modifications to those if he wants to, so nothing written here is set in stone)

The Ronin is a Privateer-class light freighter designed to haul cargo or passengers. This class of vessel is easily modified and has proven very popular with independent traders.

Like many independently-operated freighters, the Ronin has been modified to support a handful of offensive systems. The weapons are meant to dissuade pirates, but can also serve to fend off over-zealous custom agents should the need arise.

• The Ronin has three low-end laser cannons installed. Two are turreted in the center of the ship (one dorsal and one ventral). These can be operated by gunners, or linked and fired by the pilot or co-pilot. The third cannon is forward-facing and mounted over the cockpit. This is the only weapon system available to the command pod when detached from the main hull.

• Two linked, forward facing missile launchers are housed near the bow of the ship. each launchers carries eight missiles and reloading requires access to the exterior of the vessel. [THESE LAUNCHERS ARE CURRENTLY EMPTY] (Fair enough...)

• Also, there are a small point-defense lasers situated at strategic locations on the hull. These function automatically and do not require the attention of a dedicated gunner. (Bummer... XD)

• Lastly the Ronin has a standard set of grapples installed. These can be used to retrieve cargo in deep space, or to grapple other ships.

Interior Areas

Air Locks & Corridors
Passenger air locks are situated on either side of the main hull and ramps can extend from these to ground level for easy access. The air locks and the corridors beyond are spartan and worn but clean and well maintained.

General Storage
Basic equipment, including tools, food, and ammunition is stored in this room — either in small transport crates or on metal shelves lining the walls. While the large bays are used for transporting commercial cargo, this area holds those items needed in the day to day operations of the Ronin.

Secure Storage
Though not a vault, this small room has a reinforced door with a high quality electronic lock. The interior is also monitored by security sensors and a camera. Valuable times or delicate cargo can be securely stored in this chamber. In a pinch, it can instead serve as a cell for transporting troublesome passengers.

A basic refresher and toilet facilities occupy this room. Everything is clean and serviceable, but not fancy. A small panel outside of the door indicates if the room is occupied.

Crew Quarters
There are two set of bunk beds here and a pair of storage cabinets here, as well as a common table shared by the occupants. The room is rather crowded when occupied by four people, but usually only one or two are present on any given journey.

Note that the captain and co-pilot have private quarters and so the beds in here are for additional crew or passengers.

Command Pod
The command pod is the bridge area for this ship. From here the pilot and co-pilot can operate all of the ship’s systems and weapons.

The aft section of the pod holds four passenger couches — present because the command pod can also serve as a launch. Sliding up from the hull it can operate independently, though only at sub-light speed. The launch carries enough fuel to make planet fall and then return to the Ronin and re-dock. While the command pod is away the main hull is left to operate on auto-pilot, though it can be guided somewhat using the workstation in the engineering section.

As the medical facility for this ship, this room holds both a rejuvenation chamber and a small operating theatre (which doubles as an examination area). There are wide assortment of testing and treatment devices crowded in here and the usual array of pharmaceuticals on the shelves. This area currently allows 1 person to receive medical care at a time. Someone recovering in this place heals at 2x the standard rate for natural healing. Upgrades: None.

Tech Lab
This room serves as a repair shop and electronic lab. There are complete tools and facilities available for doing mechanical or electrical crafting and repair work. Cabinets full of spare parts line one wall and a micro-fusion forge keeps the room a bit on the warm side (perfect for Skal’Az!). Many of the tools are of alien design, but all are top quality. Upgrades: None.

Officer’s Quarters
Both the pilot and co-pilot have quarters adjacent to the lounge. Inside is a bed and simple cabinet.

The central section of the main hull holds the crew’s lounge (which is also available to passengers if any are aboard). Food dispensers are built into the wall, as is a large video screen. The natal table in the center of the room can retract into the floor — providing an open area for exercise or other activities.

The engineering room allows direct access to the ship’s drive systems. The walls and ceilings are the casings for various engine components, some of which extends well into the room. There is a multi-purpose workstation in the center of the chamber and a myriad of controls and access panels throughout the area.

The entrance to engineering is a pressure door, allowing the chamber to maintain atmosphere even when if the main habitation is breached. The doors from the interior of the cargo bays have the same function.

When the command pod is detached, the workstation here can be used to pilot the ship in a limited manner. Under these conditions the (insert ship’s name here) flies in autopilot mode but will follow basic instructions. There are no gunnery controls at this station however — the missiles cannot be fired, the the turreted lasers can be manned and fired manually.

Most of the engines, life support apparatus, fuel tanks, and other critical systems are housed in the forward tines, or in the main hull above and below the habitable area. Access is possible from the interior by removing floor or ceiling tiles but, as with most craft, it is more usual to gain access to these areas by removing exterior hull plating (best done in space dock).

The corridor immediately outside of the engineering room also sports a number of access panels and controls. It also contains the ladder which allows access to both the dorsal and ventral turrets.

Cargo Bay
The default configuration for the Ronin has a large cargo bay on either side of the aft part of the ship. Magnetic conductors in the floor are used to clamp down the metal freight boxes. The controls for these (and the lights, cargo doors, and environmental systems) are all on a workstation just inside the interior door. The cargo doors also have redundant controls at the aft end of the chamber.

The ship's stats. They are noted for D20 Modern, but I'm sure Dex will be able to make something out of this. The length of 140 ft is equivalent to about 43 meters (42.682), although they suggest making each 5-foot square measure 2 meters instead (which D20 Modern and Star Wars D20 often do anyways), which would make the ship measure 56 meters in that case...

I'm not seeing anyone buy food rations. Right now I am over budget the cost of rations (0.15 credits) :-P Might also swap my mag boots for a radio but I see no one's got a radio for me to talk to except S'skaar.

I've been working more on the ship and came up with a rough draft of what it's SS/DS4 stats could be. Dex is free to use/ignore/change anything I come up with here, so once again, nothing is set in stone...

DEF: 16 (I used a base of 10 [alternately, could also use its d20 Defense instead, can always experiment with other ships] + [its d20 Hardness ÷ 5]).
HP: 42 (I used [its d20 Hardness ÷ 5] + [its d20 HP ÷ 10])
INI: +3 (I simply used its d20 Initiative modifier. It would be added to the INI of all characters making actions using the ship. Ex: gunner, pilot, ect. [?])
MR: 7 (I simply used its d20 number of squared moved. Of course the scale would be much bigger. If you insist on the actual scale, I calculated it down to 150m per point or MR. Of course, other scales could be used... [?])

Piloting Bonus: +5 (I used its d20 Pilot's Class Bonus. It would be used to the pilot's piloting spacecraft checks. [?])
Targeting Bonus: +3 (I used the average of its d20 Gunner's Attack Bonus and Targeting Bonus. It would be added to the gunner's BOD+DX checks made to fire the weapons. It would not affect damage, sort of working like the turmoil bonus from DS4 [if a hit is scored thanks to this bonus, the maximum damage is lowered to the maximum amount possible using only the gunner's MOB+DX+WB+talents]. [?])
[Alternative: perhaps the INI bonus could be ignored and the pilot would gain the ship's Piloting Bonus to his INI and the gunner(s) would gain the ship's Targeting Bonus to his/their INI?]
Engines: Ion engines, Thrusters
Sensors: Class II sensor array, Targeting system (I've checked other Future Armada ships, and the sensors seem to go to Class VI, at least so far...)
Ship Size: S (I decided to go with the following arbitrary ship sizes: T = fighters, interceptors, S = small freighters, gunboats, N = corvettes, frigates, L = destroyers, large freighters, H = cruisers, C = dreadnoughts, battleships, carriers)
Length: 56m (I used the whole "turn each 5-foot squares into 2 meters squares" for all dimensions/distances)
Weight: 1500 tons
Crew: 2
Passenger Capacity: 4
Cargo Capacity: 300 tons
Grappling Systems: Grapplers (I haven't put the d20 Grapple Modifier as there is no rules fro grappling in DS4, but if you want to know if your grapples reach their target or not, I guess we could always use the Targeting Bonus for that... [?])
Armor: Vandium Plating
Communications: Laser transceiver, Radio trnasceiver

Defense Systems: Autopilot system, chaff launcher, damage control (repairs D20/2 damage on ship), magnetic field, point defense system, sensor jammer.
Weapons/Attacks: 2 fire-linked lasers (-1 per 900m, WB+2, OD-2), 2 fire-linked CHE missile launchers (8 missiles each, WB+0, 3x rolled damage), 1 laser (-1 per 900m, WB+2, OD-2), point defense system (-1 per 10m, WB+0 x10).

(I'm not quite sure about the damage and ranges of the ship's weapons yet. I went with the "basic" laser for the ship's lasers. This may sound low, but I was thinking of proposing something like the old WEG's Star Wars people/speeder/starship scales, probably changing the WB/OD depending on whether a character attacks something of a bigger or smaller scale than himself or his vehicle... For starship combat, I was thinking of making it pretty much like regular combat: each character can make a move [which only the pilot would actually use to move the ship] plus an action such as firing a weapon, using damage control on the ship, using a second move action, evasive maneuver [adding ship's Piloting Bonus to the ship's DEF for 1 round?], jamming sensors, using chaff launchers, etc. [?])
