Sengdao 3
Small Ships

This issue of the Codex presents a trio of small ships that vary greatly in both style and intended use. All are perfect for a small group of starfarers just starting out or looking for a new ride.

Sengdao is a high-end transport, considered a yacht by some, originally created by the TerraNovan Theocracy to spread the Lux Aeternum throughout, and beyond, civilized space. Sleek and stylish, with five cabins and enough room to carry up to seven crew and passenger in comfort; she’s well armed for a ship of her size and has space for some cargo as well.

The SNV Prospector is a working ship made to mine and transport metal ore. Industrial and rugged, this vessel epitomizes the “form follows function” design mentality. There’s room for four crew but not a lot in the way of amenities. The SVN carries a pair of customized HMT-337 containers that can be swapped out for standard cargo boxes, passenger containers, or any of the other 337’s from previous products.

Lastly, the Akela is a scaled-up Lokai-class shuttle with bunks for four or six. It’s the smallest design of the three and doesn’t have much more inside than the cockpit, main cabin, and bunk area. A passenger shuttle version is also included which has seating for 36 passengers plus their luggage.

The Sengdao 3 package contains three highly detailed, layered PDF files:

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

• Map Pages
      - 20 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 cargo.

• Uncut Map Images
      - Four PDF files containing uncut images of the deckplans for the ships.
      - Includes the 24x24 inch Sengdao, 27x23 Prospector, and two 8x11 Akela, map images.
      - Select either a light or dark background (for printing or projection/display).
      - Includes layers for grid, black & white version, optional cargo, and background choice.
      - Flat jpeg images on a dark background are also provided for use on screen.

Sample document and art, as well as poster maps and matching miniatures, are available at

Thank you for taking the time to consider the Sengdao, Prospector, and Akela-class starships. I hope that these three small craft can be a big addition to your game!

Another lovely little trio of ships. A heavier version of the Lokai shuttle for long-range trips or passenger transport, a small luxury yacht (with some teeth if it comes to a fight ) and, best of all the SVN, a grungy mining vessel. This is almost a [...]

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.
