Hi guys

 

In a game I'm GMing the PC band of ruffians have recently struck gold (figuratively speaking) while loosing their freighter at the same time. They are considering "upgrading" to a (Nubian) J-Type Star Skiff to travel in style, comfort and speed, and to attract a better class of customers.

 

Since I feel that a floor plan is very beneficial to make the ship more than an abstract idea of a metal tub that gets the PCs from A to B I really want to have some floor plans available for them. Besides, something "might" just happen on the ship that requires a map for the PCs.

 

I can find floor plans for the Royal Naboo Starship (see here: http://img1.wikia.no...Naboo_Royal.png) but that is of no help, obviously.

 

The best I can come up with is this: http://ivyarchenland...ircraft-part-2/

 

Anyone drawn up a floor plan of this beauty, or found a reasonable one on the interwebs?


Peace through love, understanding and superior firepower.

The site is a pretty good source of floorplans for Star Wars ships:

Thanks, but it's the wrong ship mate. I'm looking for the other Nubian :)

Are they buying it used? Because I was under the impression all Nubian ships were custom built to order.

 

Meaning the floor plan could almost be whatever they want it to be.

They are buying a brand new one, customized for their convenience. But I would expect some parts of every ship to be the same. The engineering, cockpit, droid area, boarding ramp etc. I fully expect to have to do my own version, but seeing how others have done it, the total interior space etc. would really simplify matters for me!

Pf. One failed sketch later I have a too-fat skiff drawn up in details. Back to the drawing board. Literally.

I'm taking a look at having a J-type Star Skiff in an upcoming game, and I was wondering if anybody has made any progress on a deckplan? IOW, bump.

So, from Wookieepedia, the J-Type Star Skiff is this one: http://img1.wikia.no...kiff2-chron.jpg

The following link should pull the image directly into this forum:

Unless stated otherwise, these are just my personal opinions about how I feel things should work.  Even if I quote chapter and verse of a particular rulebook, only the part that's quoted is likely to actually be official.  Each GM will have to decide for themselves what rules they will use and which ones they won't, and how they will interpret the rules they do use.  That is their right -- and their responsibility.

Am I correct in assuming that the laser turrets come out of the bronze disks above the wings?

By process of elimination, that does seem the most likely location. The best picture I’ve been able to find so far is at http://img2.wikia.no...tar_skiff_1.png and if you zoom in on that, you’ll see a couple of flaps that appear to fold out (next to the bronze disks), and that might also house the laser cannons. And there are a couple of other places where it looks like flaps might open to expose laser cannons.

But the most likely location does seem to be under the bronze disks.
