Exeter B
Tramp Freighter / Troop Transport

Exeter is a rugged, Durance-class cargo ship that supports a crew of 4 to 8. She comes with a shuttle as well as a all-terrain buggy; is well armed for when things get rough, and carries a complement of escape pods as a last resort. With a spacious cargo bay and a 10-cabin passenger deck, this ship has something for everyone and room to grow. The original Exter has been extended and improved so now she’s even better than before.

Originally constructed by Dosojin Transport Inc., the vessel spent thirty years in routine corporate service before being sold to the Exeter family. With her designation changed from “Dosojin VI” to “Exeter’s Folly”, and later just “Exeter”, this rugged vessel spent another two decades as a private merchant running a wide variety of contracts and jobs of opportunity. Meanwhile, the original Durance design has been adopted and modified by the military to produce the ORCA troop transport. With barracks for 30 soldiers and the addition of a pair of Aries-class hover tanks, this “Off-world Recon & Combat Asset” will get the job done.

This update to the classic Exeter includes the refit version, the ORCA troop transport, and a couple of variants for extra cargo or extra passenger options.

The Exeter B package contains four highly detailed, layered PDF files:

• Main Book
   • 30 page PDF file detailing the ship and interior areas.
   • Contains 3D rendered scenes as well as orthographic views of the ships.
   • Includes system independent statistics designed for easy adaption to your game of choice.
   • Background, art, and text are on different layers for custom display and printing.

• Map Pages
   • 48 page PDF file containing complete interior maps and instructions for assembly.
   • Miniature-scale maps for tactical combat with an optional 1 inch = 5 ft grid.
   • Divided into pages for easy printing in full color or printer-friendly black and white.
   • Selectable layers include: grid, black & white version, and optional objects.

• Uncut Map Images
   • Two single page PDF files containing huge images (26x36 and 26x43 inches) of the Exeter and ORCA deckplans.
   • Select either a light or dark background (for printing or projection/display).
   • Includes layers for grid, black & white version, optional cargo, and background choice.

• Giant JPEG images of the uncut maps are also provided.

Starfinder stats, demo documents, and art are available free at

The second in the “Refit” series of Armada Codex, Exeter-B is a complete update of the ship first presented in issue #6 of Future Armada.

As with all issues of the Codex, this product is designed to give you a ready-made ship to drop into your setting and rules of choice - lending depth and detail to your campaign. When it’s time to play, zero hour is ready!

Note: A PDF reader capable of displaying layers is required in order to fully use these documents. The Adobe Reader is a good, free, option.

Since I already own the Exeter, I'm wondering if there is any reason to get this too? When comparing the preview on the 0 hour site to what I already own, I can't tell what the difference it that makes it updated and expanded.

The refit adds a few more pages for the back end of the ship - there's a little garage at the aft end, with an observation deck and tail-gunner turret overhead. It also adds some variant decks for extra cargo or passengers, and for the ORCA troop-transport. These are all just variants though - the core ship is still the same as the original, though the map has been polished and re-rendered at a higher resolution. People who don't have either issue should definitely buy (only) this one, but if you already have the original Exeter, this one is certainly optional. I'll see if I can get the RPGNow system to send out a half price coupon to everyone who bought the original. That would be more in line with the value added by the refit.

It has been done. If you didn't get the e-mail, let me know ( ) and I'll resend it. And if anyone bought both Exeter issues before I sent this out, contact me and I'll make amends.

Please note.. this would have been a 5 star review had RPGNow let me post it. I have purchaed the book, however they say I have not. Dorks. Anyway.....

Hey all!

First… lets break down what you get.

1 – Exeter-B-Main.PDF – Remember the Star Wars or Star Trek books that had the beautiful breakdowns and floor plans of your favorite space ships? Well the Exeter gives them a run for their money. The prose is well thought out and colorfully written however I can guarantee that you will skip over all of that so that you can look at the absolutely incredible artwork of this ship. Down the finest detail (they have a laundry room people… ) this ship is laid out in beautiful color. THIS alone makes the PDF worth 5 dollars. See my final comment though…

2 – Exeter-B-Pages.pdf – What if I told you that all of the incredible art work above was laid out in a map book that you could print, and put together on your table? That is what pages is. Pages is the ship...See more

All part of the service. You have to yell from the tops of mountains when companies go above and beyond. In this case.. they absolutely did.

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.
