a star wars segway

Recommended Posts

so I am thinking of using the crafting rule to make something like this and I was wondering for a sil 1 hoverbike what amount of encumbrance is fair to cover it

For it to carry, or for someone to carry it?

If the former, then one crew (the "pilot") along with whatever EC the pilot carries plus maybe 2-4 extra. If the latter, no clue.

mostly I hope to have it as something that can be stored on a starfighter and a plain speeder bike is to big but I thinking a repulser Segway may work as RW ones can be small

there is a foot speeder that's encumbrance 4 so I was thinking 7 as its a bit bigger

I think the Foot Speeder is basically a Segway:

Quote

Foot speeders are constructed around a repulsorlift pad large enough for a single being to stand upon, with a steering vane extending up that doubles as a support for the occupant to hold onto.   A foot speeder allows a person to function as a Silhou­ette 1, Speed 1, Handling -1, System Strain Threshold 4 vehicle that can only operate in atmosphere and requires Piloting (Planetary) to operate.  It has a flight ceiling of 5 meters.

How do you picture your vehicle as being different?

well I was thinking that do to having better stats it have to be a hair bigger (IE better speed and handling)

but it dose look like it is a Segway I thought they were more like skateboards

I picture 'speed 1' as being fine for 'in town driving' where you are unlikely to go faster than 35mph or so.

I think the 'next step up' would be the Kuat's Undicur Jumpspeeder associated with the Eta-class shuttles in the 'Endless Vigil' supplement:  Sil 2, Speed 2, Handling 0, and described as 'little more than a low-output repulsor engine fitted with a saddle and rudimentary controls.'  Unfortunately, since this is (barely) a 'proper vehicle' there is no indication of how much cargo space it should take up (although the Eta-class shuttle can carry up to four of them in addition to its stated encumbrance threshold).
