0-hr: Kagekumo


Salvage Ship


The Kagekumo (or “Shadow spider”) class is a salvage ship. Though ostensibly designed for commercial use,
this large industrial craft has become a favorite of pirates and reavers. The vessel is designed to secure and
dismantle derelicts, or soon-to-be-derelicts, quickly and efficiently. She is equipped with massive harpoons fore
and aft to capture and tow disabled prey, plus fold-out scaffolding studded with tractor beams and cutting lasers
to embrace, immobilize, and dissect. A cadre of salvage drones can assist with disassembly or help bring down
stubborn targets. She carries a standard crew of 46, though this can easily vary by plus or minus 20.

In addition to the Kagekumo-class heavy salvage ship, two variants are also presented: the Mukade (Centipede)
which lacks the cumbersome lower scaffolding but retains the remaining salvage gear, and the Kemushi
(Caterpillar) which has no salvaging equipment at all and is intended for use as a bulk freighter. The document
also details the auxiliary craft carried by these ships, including the Hachi-class salvage drones, plus
various escape pods, lifeboats, and a repurposed shuttle.

The Kagekumo chapter of the Codex contains several detailed, layered PDF files:

     • Main Book
         - A 32 page PDF file detailing the ship and interior areas, plus the variants and small craft.
         - Contains 3D rendered scenes as well as orthographic views of the ships.
         - 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
         - Two PDF files (56 total pages) 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
         - Three single-page PDF files containing giant images of the deckplans.
         - Includes layers for grid, black & white version, optional cargo, and light or dark background.
         - Maps are 39x73, 23x73, and 23x73 inches at 150 dpi. Also provided as flat jpeg images.

This ship can serve as a legitimate salvage enterprise or a nefarious scavenger waiting in ambush. It could also
be a mobile repair station, a construction dock, or even a mining ship. Whatever it’s role, Kagekumo is ready
to salvage your campaign today!

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.

I absolutely love this ship concept. I came across many of 0-hr maps and starcraft starship conversions online, but looked into other options and this is my absolute favourite. Add a shuttle bay to your heavy freighter and it's quite possibly one [...]

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.
