“Help! This is Basilisk Lander. We are being attacked from within by escaped prisoners and need immediate assistance…” [Transmission ends abruptly]

The Basilisk Lander is a large multiple room map of the inside of the shuttle with the surrounding hull. The rooms inside include the bridge, a passenger room, a cargo room, and two bathrooms. The Basilisk Lander is armed with three major gun turrets and two smaller forward firing weapons. This product includes two 360-degree panoramic views of the passenger and cargo rooms.

The Basilisk Lander is intended for use in near or far future science games.

The Basilisk Lander makes an excellent shuttle for moving people and goods between two nearby celestial bodies. For example, the Basilisk Lander would make an excellent moonbus between the Earth and the Moon.

The cryogenic chambers in the cargo hold are used for prisoner transport. In one scenario, the cryogenic chambers malfunction, thawing out the prisoners. The prisoners awaken, knocking out any guards in the cargo room, and then start taking hostages in the passenger section of the ship. The communications officer of the ship calls for help just before the prisoners breach the bridge door. The Player Characters could be space marines, mercenaries, planetary security, or just happen to be in the sector to get the distress call. Once the prisoners take the bridge, they have access to the ship’s weapons. The Player Characters need to figure out a way to sneak towards the ship to board it without being detected. If they fail and are detected, they will have to deal with the ship’s gun turrets either taking out the guns or the power to the ship’s weapons. The prisoners might start killing hostages if they think a rescue is being attempted as well. Can the Player Characters save the hostages and the shuttle from the prisoners?

You can buy this product from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow.

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004.
