Deluxe Starship Designs


Invictus is the flagship of the Confederation fleet and the first of its kind (so technically it is an “Invictus-class” vessel). At almost 2400 ft long, the ship carries 200 fighters, 40 boarding shuttles, and a 1500 crew, soldiers, and passengers. It is designed to rapidly deploy combat craft and serve as a long range missile platform – allowing it to command a battle well back from the lines while still contributing massive firepower to the fight.

Invictus expands and improves upon the technologies developed for the Argos III station. The Sendai Component System was employed for most of its habitable areas. The same Transportation Tube technology is used to move personnel efficiently about the ship and similar gravitic redirectors are employed to propel the carrier. As on Argos III, rotation is used to efficiently simulate gravity in the habitation rings, but in other areas grav plating is employed. The landing and launch mechanisms are unique to this class of carrier.

Invictus reuses many of the map tiles from Argos III and adds several more of its own - increaseing the possible customization of both products, and giving the ambitious GM even more to work with in creating his or her own unique facilities. The pages used from Argos III are reproduced here so that everything needed to map out Invitus is included in this supplement.

The .zip file contains the following:

  • Overview
    • 33 page PDF file detailing the ship, interior locations, and sample personnel.
    • Open Game License stats provided for the ship and sample crew, as well as fighters and shuttles.
  • Map Book
    • Full-color 60 page PDF file.
    • Contains pages to construct interior maps of all habitable areas.
    • Includes miniature-scale maps for tactical combat.
    • Broken into pages for easy printing.
    • Pages add to the Argos III design pattern to allow for efficient reuse.
  • Printer friendly, grayscale version of the map book.
  • Subsector Map Book
    • Full-color 16 page PDF file.
    • Provides an overview of each section of the capitol ship.
    • Includes location key and page layout diagrams.
  • "Bonus Art" directory with rendered images of the carrier, fighters, and shuttles.

Sample documents and bonus art are available at

Please note that, unlike many issues of Future Armada, this installment does NOT contain giant composite images designed for an oversized printer. As with the other giant ships and stations, the extreme file size required for a ship of this size makes the inclusion of such bonus maps infeasible.

Invictus can serve as a base of operations from which to run a campaign, or a detailed location to drop into your ongoing story. As always, familiar OGL stats are provide but kept separate. When it comes to capitol ships, this one can't be beat!

A wonderful map. I hope to someday see a high-rez map of it. One tiny thing I did notice when trying to piece the maps together, the Habitation Ring Administration Overview map cell B2 references the Wa.01 map sheet, which doesn't appear to exist in th [...]

The best ship deck plans ever, and for seven bucks you get a huge ship. Very, very nice. Not just a ship, though; print up (I use them as jpegs with MapTool) certain deck plans, and label them Part of Outpost or Factory Control Areas, and you're [...]

The Future Armada series is awesome! Each set includes a detailed write-up of one or two ships, including diagrams, deck plans, and d20 stats. The deck plans are provided in a small-scale image so that you can see the whole layout of the ship on a sing [...]

Impressive graphics, though some more labeling on the maps would be nice. [...]

An excellent PDF as I've come to expect from this series. The modular design of the deckplans adds flexibility especially when combined with the Argos III station. The design of the product is very good. The quality of each individual tile is ve [...]

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.
