These speeder like vessles, are a combination of once alive animals and technology, much like repulsor elevators used by the wookies in their tree cities. Its frame, backbone and wings, are the remains of a "Fsill fly", a huge creature, that gets to almost a bantas size accross. The remains are gutted out, leaving the spine, wings, ribs and forelimbs... All else, is taken.
To this, is placed on hull plating, seats, a moderate sized power generator (and small fuel cell), weapons and a control unit for its back up repulsor drive.
The Wookies, used these vessles to great effect during the clone wars, when the droid armies came to their planet, but almost all of them were destroyed (or taken) when the empire came to power.

What is this? It's not the Wookiee Flying Catamaran seen in Ep3, right? Cause that is an "Oevvaor Jet Catamaran". So where is this from?

Yeah, well... Wizards already statted it, and I converted it for my Vehicles Stats book.

But yours are nice stats. Maybe you could assign them to an alternative wookiee vessel. Thos catamarans are very rustically-made, so there could be a lot of variation between each vessel.

This is true, considering that each bowcaster is different and considered an art form. Why not other Wookie creations.

That's right. This could either be a whole different type of vehicle, or could just be an individual one, if you go the "each one is a work of art" route.

That could work... So what are your thoughts then?

I like the idea of it being a different vehicle myself.

Well, I imagine the stats that WotC put out are probably intended to be the stock stats. Covert those to D6, then go from there. I'd imagine backstory would play a good part in the final stats of each vessel; some are going to be faster, some more heavily armed, others designed with defense as the priority. The personality of the Wookiee who created it (or the one for whom it's being built) ought to be incorporated into the stats, just as though it were a work of art.

What do you all think?

Looks real good, Gry!

And the blaster cannon could be replaced by a bowcaster, but I think that since you have to be a Wookiee (or of great strength, at least) to wield a regular bowcaster, it might become problematic to have a larger-scale caster on the vehicle. So the blaster cannon might be the way to go.

Actually the great strength is to load the Bowcaster, but you can get them with auto-loaders. Apparently Chewies was an auto loader. The one he uses in RotJ is his third, he fires it once and that's the only time he uses it.

I thought that's what the strength issue was about. I wonder what the strength requirement would be for a tricaster on a vessel like this... I imagine it'd be higher than a regular bowcaster.

It is what the strength issue is about, but I guess even wookkies get tired of loading their Bowcasters.

Well, actually, my look for the Tricaster, would actually be that it is not a proper bowcaster, but more of a caster looking rapid firing weapon (like a 50 cal machine gun)...
