[Mongoose Publishing] Referee’s Aid 5: Type-Y Yacht

By on 27 March 2015
Referee's Aid 5

For the very rich, starships are eminently affordable purchases. Although a starship may be bought as an investment, then hired out to other organisations or used for mercantile operations, a yacht is a personal vessel. Most are specially commissioned or refitted to fulfil a specific purpose, and can provide some inspiration of what can be done with an open-ended budget without simply sinking money into armaments. The Type-Y yacht is the merest of what is possible with truly unlimited wealth but provides a classic status symbol recognisable throughout Charted Space.

Built on a 200-ton hull, the Type-Y yacht is a noble’s plaything used to entertain friends and undertake political or commercial missions. M J Dougherty takes you through this ship, luxurious stateroom by stateroom, to explore how the other side travel through space.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). 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. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
