FUTURE ARMADA
Deluxe Starship Designs

MERCURY TRIO
Mercury, Remora, & Valkyrn

This installment of Future Armada brings you a sampling of ships to fit a variety of situations. These three vessels cover a broad spectrum of styles, tech levels, challenge, and morality. So whatever your needs, you'll be able to find something in this trio.

First, we have Mercury - largest of the three at 155 feet. This is a Progress Level 8 prototype: a mix of human and Aleerin technology captained by self-styled hero known as "The Shepard". He and his beautiful sidekicks are out to do good and, more importantly, win fame for themselves and Project Quicksilver (which produced the craft). Equipped with an advanced cloaking screen, an inertial flux engine, ablative armored skin, and zero bore cannons, Mercury is light-years ahead of the usual ships you'll find cruising the space lanes.

Next up is Remora-18, a salvaged boarding craft that is being used by a sadistic gang of cyber-punks to hunt civilian craft deep in the void. This beast employs magnetic grapples to lock onto the hull of a ship and then engages its breaching bore to burn a hole through which the rampaging gang can board. The 100 foot long ship is PL 6 and ugly as sin but gets the job done. Like Mercury, it supports a crew of three and a like number of passengers. The hold also has plenty of room for a boarding party to gather.

Lastly, we present the Valkyrn interceptor. At 74 feet this PL 7 craft is one step beyond a heavy fighter and carries a crew of four in its cramped interior. Valkyrn Bravo-6 is stationed out of Port Bastion - tasked with patrolling the hinterlands of known space to watch for hostile incursions and provide a first line of defense if needed. It is also authorized to conduct police duties as required. The ship is fast, well-armed, and also streamlined for atmospheric flight. If your players are aiming to misbehave, a Valkyrn patrol could give them something to worry about.

That's Mercury on the cover. You can see renderings of Remora and the Valkyrn interceptor in the demo document (see link below).

The .zip file contains the following:

  • Overview
    • Separate PDF files (at about 9 pages each) detailing the interior locations and crew of each ship.
    • Open Game License stats are provided for the vessels and all personnel.
  • Map Book
    • Full-color 17 page PDF file containing complete interior maps for all three ships.
    • Includes overview and miniature-scale maps for tactical combat.
    • Broken into pages for easy printing.
  • Printer friendly, grayscale version of the map book.
  • Miniature-scale composite maps of each ship's interior.
    • A 16x31 inch, 150 dpi, color JPEG image of the Mercury prototype.
    • A 18x21 inch, 150 dpi, color JPEG image of the Remora boarding craft.
    • A 15x15 inch, 150 dpi, color JPEG image of the Valkyrn interceptor.
  • "Bonus Art" directory with sixteen rendered images of these ships.

Sample documents and bonus art are available at 0-hr.com.

Whether you need an ally, an adversary, or just some guys trying to do their job and keep the space lanes safe, this installment of Future Armada will add some color to the void. Or vent the crew and use the ships for your own nefarious purposes - the armada is at your disposal.

Ok, so I was a little skeptical when I saw this, especially because the preview did not load on my computer. So I bought the mercury trio just to see if I was throwing away $5. All I can say is wow. I haven't even read the write ups yet, but the art is [...]

You simply cannot go wrong with these products. They are without a doubt the best deckplans in the business. I own the entire line, and am eager to buy more. This gives a trio of deckplans: a small alternate tech ship, a pirate vessel that is very [...]

The Future Armada series is awesome! Each set includes a detailed write-up of one or two ships, including diagrams, deck plans, and d20 stats. The deck plans are provided in a small-scale image so that you can see the whole layout of the ship on a single [...]

You get three usable ships with this PDF. The Mercury is pretty good and the Valkyrn is decent, but the real gold is in the Ramora. It's a very unique ship. The artwork included is really well done. I show one of the jpgs to my players as they encounter [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
