"Standard Imperial classification for a small starship purposed specifically for use within the Imperial interstellar Scout Service or operated by detached scouts of said service.
These ships are typically of one hundred displacement tonnes and capable of a two parsec jump."
Ship Book:Type S Scout/Courier by Michael Johnson from Moontoad Publishing is based on the iconic starship from the classic 2d6 Science Fiction rpg. And this is an excellent adventurer starship & most of the activitiy with this iconic starship is the fact that it has an excellent write up with variant models, crews, and adventure seeds.
These starships are the work horses between star systems and they carry smaller cargos. But these are really 'sunshine' starships flitting from sector to sectors bringing news, cargo, and adventure opportunities. Where Ship Book:Type S Scout/Courier by Michael Johnson really shines is the fact that it gives the DM a fully fleshed out crew & adventure seeds. The blue prints, plans, etc. of the Ship Book:Type S Scout/Courier are top notch. For the price its an excellent little ship for a group of starting adventurers.
For modern 2d6 Cepheus Engine adventures and campaigns Ship Book:Type S Scout/Courier is a perfect framing device for adventures. And I believe that Ship Book:Type S Scout/Courier is a perfect fit for Independence Games Clement Sector.
The Ship Book:Type S Scout/Courier is a perfect fit for the Space Western campaign setting. The reason is the fact is the starship fits the courier role so well and is perfect for evading space pirates & outlaws. Our perfect VIP starship & courier is right here. And recovery of said VIP is another adventure opportunity for the PC's.
The Ship Book:Type S Scout/Courier is the perfect starship for the mining or prospecting or explorer mission goal post. The variant starships have bags of character for a mining or exploration campaign.
