Product Hilight – Starship Kit Volume 6.4:Other Systems

After a long hiatus, the Starship kit continues with “Starship Kit Volume 6.4:Other Systems”. This volume covers the other systems you may find on a starship. The Starship kit is system generic and not tied to any setting. It uses a simple system to help gauge how powerful, complicated or expensive a particular component is.

These systems are everything else that is not medical,enviromental, weapons,armor or anything covered ina previous volume that  you would find on a starship and features:

  • Cargo & Storage : What is the ship carrying and how is it stored?
  • Civilian services : With suhhegstions such as a counsellor or “adult” workers
