Pirates of Drinax: Harrier class Commerce Raider

Watermarked PDF

The Harrier-class commerce raider is the starship used in the Pirates of Drinax epic campaign. It is loaned to the Travellers by King Oleb of Drinax as both a means of transportation and instrument of policy. Although the ship is advanced, it is in poor condition due to age and long years of neglect. Repairing and perhaps upgrading the Harrier is likely to be an important goal in the campaign.

This supplement presents the Harrier in more detail, along with expanded rules for repairs and upgrades, showing you exactly what life is like on board this ship - there may even be a few special items tucked away that have yet to be discovered...

Is there a typo in the maintenance cost of the Harrier? The listed cost is more than ten times the amount listed in the Pirates of Drinax Book 2.

It is also a little unclear as to what the maintenance cost can be reduced to. It says that, at the start of the campaign, the "running costs are double what a ship of this type should normally cost." Does this mean that the starting maintenance costs are Cr57,260, but it can be reduced to Cr28,630? That seems pretty steep for the start of the campaign and a guarantee that the PCs will be making rolls for Poor Maintenance after the first month.

Do we have a page count on this? It appears that almost the entire item was uploaded by accident in the preview (five pages? woops! And the "quick preview" link just shows a blank page) -- leaving it hard to imagine that much more is left to be included. Of the remaining page(s), I have some questions. The artwork and diagrams may indeed be professionally done and useful and all but is there an actual ship schematic? (Or is there one but it is just abstract and tucked away in a small corner of a page)? Are the potential repairs and upgrades only for this ship and campaign, or are they more modular, able to be used in other circumstances? Is this ship really only viable in adventures inside of the Pirates arc? It's understandable if things are tied down, sometimes things are, and the Pirates campaign certainly is fascinating.

The page count is 30+ the cover (the page count in the description is accurate). There is a ship schematic (there is a big poster of it's layout in the core Pirates of Drinax set too, it should be noted). I suppose the listed upgrades could be adapted to different ships, but this supplement is solely about the Harrier. The ship could be used in any part of the Traveller universe - or anywhere else that pertains to the Traveller rules.

I am curious about how it will turn out in printed copy. When I printed it out for my players, it actually came out as a digest sized booklet, and was quite serviceable. Are we going to see a return of the little book design?

Duh, the poster of course -- don't know how I missed that (or the page count on the right side)! This seems actually pretty hefty then.

Thanks Rory.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
