Solifidian Lilith - The Starship From Hell

I can review it quickly before go into the starship for Hulks & Horrors.


Get it here, it is very very good simple tool to make great spaceships and hulks your player characters might encounter in horror-ish science fiction adventures. There are no stats whatsoverer so this is extremely easy to use with any system you ever can imagine using it with. No art but who needs art when there are cool tables enough to make an interesting and possibly adventuring location. Now go, it is  PWYW. But this is very good and easy + fun to use I highly suggest you toss some coins for +Rafael Chandler. He does great stuff.

I am not going to review Hulks & Horrors now. I just say it is a good small game with strong OSR roots. PDF is free, print is inexpensive. HERE!

Done, let's start. All ship information randomly rolled using The Starship From Hell are modified to fit Hulks & Horrors. The map was made using H&H hulk random generator. Then all was mashed up together and this is the result:

PHENOMENA

Destruction of the stellar dreadnough Plaguebearer in wrapped time-space nearby created lethal and dangerous anomalia what surrounded Solifidian Lilith. The ship used to board Solifidian Lilith looses all its power for unknown reason. The power can be restored... somehow...

PLANET BELOW: CEL (TAU CETI C)


Third planet in Theta Hydrae system. Forest planet, botched terraforming, carnivorous and sentient plant beasts. No reports of colonies. Holy monolith of the ancients.

The civilian and civilized population of CEL has been infected with a biomechanical syndrome that results in heightened aggression and a diminished sense of shelf. Coupled with the integrated biological weaponry that the syndrome installs, the planet's civilians are now a veritable army in search of a commander. The ship's crew members are preparing to land on the planet so they can begin the work of testing new experimental medicine on this biomechanical disease.
