Howdy folks.

TNE has always been one of my favorite Traveller editions, mainly because of the amount of depth and texture that GDW gave to the RC in such a relatively short span of time. Technologically, one of the most striking examples of the RC mindset and strategy was the Aurora Class clipper.

According to GDW lore, there were plans to create a sourcebook just for the clipper itself and some of its modules. History, of course, prevented that from happening. But this is one thing that I have always wanted to see for the last 12 years or so, ever since I saw it in the back of the Path of Tears sourcebook.

Loren teased us a few months ago, intimating that something may be back in the works, but it may also be a long wait. I couldn't wait that long. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Over the last few weeks (longer, actually, but most of the work has gone in the last couple) I have been peicing together a draft deckplan of the Aurora clipper using CC2 Pro. I am not going to post the image here to the thread, as it will distort the page way the hell out of proportion.

But go ahead and check it out.

I am definitely interested in constructive criticism here. Understanding that not everything is on the floorplan yet, I am nevertheless concerned that there seems to be a LOT of extra space on the deck...that just doesn't seem very Star Viking. [img]smile.gif[/img]

So have at it. Let me know what you think.
