Default Element Class Cruisers: Ship Builder's Blueprints

I'm surprised no one posted on this... which makes me second guess doing so? Hmmm

A few days ago Mongoose published Element Class Cruisers: Ship Builder's Blueprints by MJD - the link leads to DriveThruRPG where you can grab the PDF copy now.

It's spendy, but I grabbed it right up. I've only skimmed so far but it looks -very- interesting. This is the description on DTRPG:


"
The cruisers of the Imperial Navy are both its symbol and its workhorses.

The three classes of ship that make up the Element cruiser family are mainstays of the Imperial Navy, and can be found across Charted Space. From fighting wars and protecting the space lanes, to flag showing missions and voyages of discovery, Element cruisers are true, reliable workhorses of the navy. These huge vessels are equipped with configurable pods, allowing them to be tailored to specific missions, and this box set contains eight such pods, allowing a cruiser to act as a fleet carrier, exploration ship, scout or strike vessel.

This set includes a detailed description of all three Element cruiser classes, the crew who serve aboard them, and the missions they undertake. The ships come alive with the 24 massive blueprint posters (in a variety of electronic formats, allowing you to zoom in on specific details, get a wider view of the entire ship, or print out, allowing players and referees to visualise an entire Imperial capital ship across every deck and weapons bay.

Also included is the▮Naval Campaigns Handbook, a complete guide to running your own ‘bridge crew’ campaigns in Traveller. Huge, sweeping campaigns can be created that will take a military ship and its crew through a war, or far out into unexplored space to discover what lies beyond the reach of the Third Imperium.

Thanks for the heads-up.

I just picked it up while the sale is on. I was most interested in the Naval Campaign book which at first glance looks good. The actual ship book looks good although I don't use MgT2 there are useful bits.

Even at the sale price my pocket is going ouch tho...

Definitely! MJD's Fleet Sector Sourcebook for SM is one of the best Imperium sourcebooks out there.

Thanks for the head's up... buying now!

An idea percolating in my brain and I'd thought I'd share. A two-tier campaign with the mechanics from this supplement but smaller ships (400-2000dt).

Campaign/Plot driven by the high-level mechanics in VBAM's "With A Purpose" for generating random plots, goals, tracking tension and the like.

Feels like it would be awesome-sauce. With a good group, you could even have multiple ships run by different players...

Not complaining or anything, looks like a good product. Just wondering if they changed the class name. I thought they used to be Planet class in the older versions of the game.

After consultation with Mr Miller, the decision was made to formally bring the three sub-classes together and rename them.

Lightbulb New Images of the Three Classes Of Elemental Cruiser

Hope everyone will like the redesigned images of the Elemental Class Cruiser from the books that were in White and Blue. I am currently making detailed deckplans for the ship, should be done by Christmas time or by the new year of 2020.
