Starship Maker

Watermarked PDF

Starship Maker

Many years ago, Ennead Games brought out a series of PDFs called the “Starship Kit.” It was designed to help Gamemasters, players and storytellers come up with starship designs and details for their sci-fi games and tales.

Now, it has been compiled into one handy volume, updated in places, some tables tweaked, others expanded and so on.

The Starship Maker gives you a series of tables and ideas to help with your creation or to “fill in the blanks” in an existing design or concept you already have – From the shape, to the engines, to the weapons, even the ship’s name and registration.

Inside you find tables and help with...

  • Armour and Shields
  • Crew Roles (not the crew, just the various jobs)
  • Engines and Propulsion
  • Environmental Systems
  • Medical Systems
  • Power Generation
  • Ship Name and Registration
  • Ship Class, Shape and Size
  • Weapons systems
  • Plus more!
Update - A second file has been added with a printer-friendly version of the main pdf .  The background image and cover have been removed in this second version but all content is 100% the same.

A lot of interesting stuff, BUT! Very little about cargo spaces, stowage, and cargo handling. No cargo-related crew positions. By analogy with ocean vessels, a large number of space vessls might be expected to be cargo lifters. Disappointing.

Good morning, I purchased the original Starship Kit products. How much has been added/tweaked in this new, compiled version? Is there enough to warrant getting this one?

Thank you.

It is approximately 95% the same as the Starship Kit. One major difference is the MK/Tier system has been re-done into a 1-100 system instead of 1-20. In essence, it is a compilation into one volume. If you have all the SK parts then this might not be worth getting - I don't want you to feel ripped off

If one does NOT have the SK, would this be the better buy?

I would agree with that - In one way this could be considered to be SK Version 2. If you have the original version then probably not worth getting, unless you want everything in one volume and some stuff tweaked.

Original electronic
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.
