Which brings up another question...do a Runecaster and Miloslav in combination triple or quadruple warp speed?

 

Mixing xeno-tech intented for use in the webway, with an overclocked warp engine... What could go wrong?

I'd f### up really bad with a Navigator's mind trying to go 4x the normal travel time (imagine driving off-road at 200kmh by night with a16 wheeler, but hey! you are using a GPS and night vision googles).

The way I decided it, modifiers from Essential components happen first, then Supplementals, in descending order of speed increase. I had it flowcharted somewhere after my players decided to get every speed-modifying upgrade they could and build a time machine out of it.

They totally deserve a high-five for that. Mostly for hilarity and creativity.

Planning session:

"We really want to play up the political and economic powers that a Rogue Trader's dynasty has! We want Spice and Wolf meets Horatio Hornblower!"

Two weeks later:

"So we built this ship that will reliably make any trip in between 1 and -10 weeks..."

Well, it'll allow you to charge a few fortunes simply for always delivering before time... or you get nothing, since nobody ordered anything yet :D

 

"Sir, there are merchants, selling us A few Megatons of Water in response to the... drought..." "We don't need Water, we're perfectly fine, how can there be a drought in this effin rain? Send them away." 

*A few weeks later*

"Someone send a request to get us some water!"
