The Legacy

Asgard Class Trading Vessel


The Legacy is the free trading vessel owned and operated by the player characters in the Amber Nebula Campaign.

The ship was designed using the GURPS Vehicles, 2nd Edition rules, with TL10 technology except for the variant hyperdrive and rocket thrust engines. (Reactionless thrusters do not exist in the campaign.) Other details such as wiring and plumbing have also been added for additional realism.

In the Amber Nebula Campaign, there is no gravitic technology, so the ship is in weightless conditions whenever it is in space.
