Vehicles

Includes all kinds of non-gravitic vehicles, including ground air, and water craft.

General Vehicle Type

Roll 1D on the following table to determine the General Vehicle Type.

In our example, the referee rolls 6 on 1D and proceeds to the Watercraft table.
Roll (1D) Type
1-4 Ground Vehicles
5 Air Vehicles
6 Watercraft

Specific Vehicle Type

Roll 1D or 2D on the correct table to determine the specific vehicle type. Next, roll 1D to determine the number of vehicles of that type available. It is now up to the PC's to determine how many they can afford to buy!

In our example, the referee rolls 5 on 1D on the Watercraft table for "Hovercraft". After rolling another 1D, he discovers that 4 hovercraft are available for purchase. After reading the corresponding Description, the referee calculates that the base cost is Cr 200,000 x 4 = Cr 800,000. However, the Actual Value roll will be reduced by 5 (In - 3, Wa - 1, and Hi - 1 for manufactured goods).

The PC's are able to pick up a bargain lot of ACVs! Now they just have to transport them somewhere...
