Theseus Class Medium Starfighter

As I mentioned before I am working on a SF campaign setting for d6 Space. One of the things my players requested were space battles featuring space fighters much like in games like Wing Commander or FreeSpace. As inspiration I used concept artwork from the Homeworld series. There were quite a few ships that matched my idea of what a space ship should look like and I then started to look for a nice and easy space ship construction system for d6 Space.

In the end I used a web based ship construction system for the old Star Wars d6 system created by Chris Curtis and WEG Fan Forums regular Grimace. It makes construction of all manners of space ship very easy. In the end I just had to make a few adjustments to make the stats work in d6 Space since the rules don’t match 100%.

To make everything a pleasing for the eye I have started putting together a small booklet for me an my players using the aforementioned concept art and a DTP program. So, I present to you the Theseus Class Medium Starfighter:
