What's Wrong With The Ship?
Starship Malfunction Expansion Tables
and Deck of Cards
What happens when your pilot fails her landing attempt... BADLY?
What happens when your starship takes combat damage?
There are some expansion tables for ship damage from combat, hard landings, poor maintenance, etc, that might help. They are compatible with Traveller and Cepheus Engine and other sci-fi RPG games (but they are intended for a Traveller-like system).
- You can find the d66 ship damage tables at DriveThruRPG: What's Wrong WIth the Ship Vols 1-6 Damage Tables
- They also come in the form of a deck of 72 poker-sized cards: Starship Malfunction Cards
*The cards are unique content and do not duplicate with the tables
- They also come as a set of cards for Roll20.net: Starship Malfunctions Deck 1 for Roll20
- You can see a cheesy video about them on YouTube: What's Wrong With The Ship?
I like to add a certain level of detail to the ships in my games. The ship is the Traveller's home, so it's important to keep it maintained and in good shape. These tables provide the damaged system, the repair estimate, the damage location, and suggested roleplaying effects.
