That's my mistake, not McPerth's.

I suggested it in the preliminary discussion thread without knowing there was an actual invention in the rules. I had remembered the orrery because it was an ether navigation device an inventor could develop and thought it would be easy enough to simply change the labels. I should have drug out my copy of the core book when I had my "idea" and saved everyone this trouble.

Wasn't assigning any blame. Just being clear that my PDF shows it different that previously discussed.

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

  • Chemistry: 2
  • Biology: 2
  • Geology: 2
  • Archaeology: 2
Engineering:
  • Naval architecture: 1
  • Earthworks: 1
  • Explosives: 1

The following knwledges:
  • Ether: 12
  • Precision machinery: 29
  • Electricity: 5
  • Power production: 8

And the following inventions:
  • Ether propeller: reliability 5
  • Ethrometer: reliability 4
  • Solar boiler: reliability 5

He keeps his remaining dice (2 chemistry and 1 int) for the future...

So, his knowledges and inventions are:

The following knwledges:
  • Ether: 12
  • Precision machinery: 29
  • Electricity: 5
  • Power production: 8
  • Transportation: 6
  • Biochemistry: 8
  • Combustion: 5
  • Geology/metallurgy: 6

By appling all this to the Highlands Pride, its stats would be:

ItemTonsCrew
Hull 200T hydrogen400002 (deckhands)
Armor 120010none
Control Roomfree12 (bridge)
Solar boiler*103 (engineering)
Ether propeller*4none
Rigging (as kite)1200202 (topmen)
Forced Draught boiler(size 2)2000102 (engineers)
Coal bunker010none
2 x 6pdr HRC440302 (gunners)
Laboratory20003none
4 passengers8010none
Cargo045none
Totals992016313


Solar boiler is 5 power points. Ether Propeller is 4 power points (the remaining one is needed for the laboratory) and efficiency 35 (20 + 5 x 3).

It is equiped with an Orrery (reliability 4) and an Inertial Compass (reliability 1).

Atmospheric speed would be as kite if the boiler is not used, 6 when the boiler is used. It's able to reach very high alttitude.

Laboratory would be equiped to ressearch Ether, Precision Machinery, Electricity, Combustion, Biochemistry (also used to destilate moonshine as oportunity arises) and Geology/metallurgy.

Crew would be Capitain, helmsman, signalman, one officer (as crew is over 10), 3 engineering, 2 deckhands, 2 topmen and 2 gunners and a cat or two (to keep the ship free of mice and similar vermin), with provisions for 4 passengers.

Other details as told here.

Does it seem OK?

Yep... has a bit of a mad science vibe, due to both sail rigging and a boiler and prop system. It's the first time i've seen a kite-rigged zeppelin design.
