The Mako Cruiser looks very much like a shark. The cockpit is visible on the head and back, while the ships tonnage is enclosed. The fins function as steering fins, with the large dorsal fin as a very large mainmast.

Away from planets and other large objects, a Mako Cruiser flies through space at what is called cruising speed. The cruising speed of a ship depends on the helm propelling it. A minor helm allows a ship to travel between adjacent planets in 2d6+2 days (The random element assumes that even adjacent planets may be in different parts of their orbits). In extreme circumstances, you could double or even triple these times.

These vessels come equipped with one Lantern of Air Purity and an Astrolabe. See Special Equipment for details. Any other equipment must be purchased by the owners/crew.

Ship Uses

This ship was designed as a battle cruiser, specifically to battle humanoid ships like orc mantis ships. The Mako Cruiser is a hearty fighter used across the empire. The vessel is designed for use by a single mage or cleric pilot with room for an additional crew member if they are friendly. These vessels see regular use by bounty hunters, security personnel and as support ships for capital ships.
