In preparation for the release of the Compact & Worn Starship Deck Plans 6×6 Tiles (PDF and pre-print tiles), we are providing this free sampler PDF which contains a starship tile designed for use with 25-27mm figures using the 1inch=5ft scale, plus a “hangar floor” tile and some cargo crates.
The inspiration behind this set is based on the sci-fi rpg referee’s need to have a play area which fits within the space of the tabletop, perhaps for a dynamic chase and fire-fight, through a space station or space port, for example. These are small craft which can dock inside of larger vehicles. They will be ideal in representing spacecraft which player’s can steal or purchase. Most are battered and “previously used”. In games where interstellar craft only 30 ft across are unacceptably small, they might still be of use as “ship’s boats”, shuttles or air-vehicles.
The full product will contain this design and 11 other 6×6 inch starship designs with a choice of backgrounds, in colour and black/white line art. We are also working on a guide with descriptions for the starships, as if sold by second hand dealers. It will be available as printable PDFs and as pre-printed tiles through the DTRPG/RPGNow sites.
The 3 page sampler PDF file is just over 3MB. We recommend printing to paper, photo-paper or card from a home desktop printer; trimming with scissors; perhaps then mounting the tiles on a second layer to prevent curling.
