Starship Skills

This is a list of starship related skills and techniques.

Spaceship piloting

Pilot a starship. Designed for small ships, up to 100t. Over 100t, and each doubling, there is a -5 to all skill checks with this skill (so -5 up to 200t, -10 up to 400t, -15 800t etc).

An Evasion check is made with Dexterity x Spaceship Piloting.

  • Damage evasion (4); Reduce damage taken by ensuring it is distributed evenly over the surface of your ship. Wounds suffered are halved (round down), if a check of 15 + 3 * wounds is made.
  • Fancy flying (4); Bonus to evade large weapons.

Spaceship gunnery

Fire spaceship scale weapons. By default, assumes energy weapons (lasers, particle).

Uses Perception x Spaceship Gunnery (or Dexterity for fixed mount forward facing weapons fired by the pilot). Target gets a base of 15, or an evasion roll.
