our MOG threw a similar sounding crystal into our game. it ended up being installed in a super laser. its power increased high enough to destroy planets.

It was only a simple energy amplifying crystal. It's being used by a villain, not a pc, and it's one-of-a-kind. The lasers original power was only able to take out capital ships in a single shot, that could only fire every few rounds. Now, the weapon can destroy planest in every other round. No big deal, right?

Destroy planets every other round?! The Death Star took 6 hours to fully charge! Must be some crystal... Wink

I remember seeing the Death Star II fire its super laser more than once in the battle of endor. now it may have been on a lower power setting.
Now, the crystal was an ancient secret of a dead race. The crystal was protected in a tomb by three small beams of light. but those beams of light were directed at the crystal, redircted out by focusing crystals to form an impervious force field. So yeah, some crystal.
Now the original weapon was a weaker verson, say a prototype, of the "super laser equiped super star destroyers" whatever they were called, and required a lot of time and a lot of power to work effectivly. So with the crystal in hand, the baddies could use, maybe, a quarter of the power necessary.
I'm still working on the details on how this ship will effect my story in the future.

Yup, you're correct, Rathe. I just looked it up and the superlaser on the second death star was much more advanced than the original one (which I had posted about). The original death star could only fire at maximum power and took 8 hours to fully charge. The second death star could fire it's superlaser at lower damage settings and could recharge in much less time. The damage rating of the superlaser on the second death star is 2D-16D and it can generate 2D of damage per minute, up to the maximum of 16D damage. However, the energy cells in the design can only produce 48D per day without severely straining the energy reactors. (Special Edition Trilogy Sourcebook)

In "Star Wars : The Essential Guide To Weapons And Technology", they state that the first Death Star needed an entire day to build up enough charge for a full power blast, but that even a low-power shot had enough destructive force to crack a planet's crust and cause incredible seismic upheaval, and that the superlaser aboard the second Death Star featured improved targeting computers for firing on capital ships.

So yeah! Wow, every two rounds, that could probably wipe out any large size fleet of capital ships real easy 8)

Good idea, BJ, and it can be used to get Mynocks off the hull before re-entry, too!

And Lord Aramus, I am amazed! Simply amazed!!!

I'll be starting up an outer rim campaign with my local gaming group probably at the end of the summer, so expect to see more by the time I am done.

I'm thinking about turning #2 war pods into asteroid mining vessels.

ok my base ship is a mobquet medium cargo hauler Smile the states are in pirates & privateers on page 67 any ways why i like it as a start it has a 7d hall and you get +5 to all modifications and replacements Smile here is were i start moding 1. give it a 1/2 hyper drive 2. up space to 10 3.add 4 comar f-4 ion cannons does 4d oh ya have them made in to hidin popups so you might still pass at the docking ports 4.add shilds oh i think 5d just to the front for ramming Twisted Evil
and if you dont have to dock at any regular port then try some of these other modes
1. a sensor baffling at 2d 2.sensor mask at 2d 3.comm jammers 4. sensor jammers 5.baffeld drive 6. backup batterys i think 4 7. and never leve home with out at least 4 new transponder codes .

oh that bit about bording i would say i will use a plasma punch and vent it to space frist than bord and shot every one with stun 2 befor takying the ship but that is just a thought Twisted Evil by for now

I like it! Very Happy


One of the guys i play with in sparks, has a ton of 'cargo' which he has stored 20 kilos of thermite plasticine (2d damage per kilo by the book). So when he is in hot water, he flys close to the offending ship and dumps the cargo out, hoping it hits.... Had a lancer get destroyed that way...
