Forest Products

Includes wood and wood derivatives (processed wood). Normally, transporting wood between star systems is not cost-effective. However, unusual woods may be prized on other worlds due to their beauty and/or other qualities. May be shipped in standard cargo containers (54 kl, 4 displ. tons) or simply lengths of trunk.

Forest products are flammable, requiring protection from sparks and excessive heat. Roll 15+ during loading/shipment for a container to be breached; DM + 6 if ship is hit by enemy fire. If a breach occurs, make a task roll to avoid a fire.

To avoid setting the contents alight:
Routine, INT, instant
Referee: if breach was caused by an energy or laser weapon, or if a fire is already burning nearby, or if starport temperatures are over 40C, the task becomes Difficult. If a fire occurs aboard ship, inflict one Hold hit (Book 2) or Internal Explosion (HG/MT) per turn of uncontrolled burning.
