Raw materials that have been refined and are now ready to be put to use.
Generally shipped in bulk versions of standard cargo containers. Each container is 4 displacement tons (54 cu. m.) in volume.
Metals of the lower rows of Groups VIIIB and IB. Either extremely rare or prized for their lustre. These are prize targets for hijackers and pirates. Precious metals are shipped as pallets of ingots.
|Roll (2D)||Substance||Volume/Pallet (cu. m.)||Weight/Pallet (T)||Price/Pallet (MCr)|
Pallets Available: 1D.
The more expensive substances could cause problems with financing the purchase. Possible roleplaying events can arise from having to deal with swindles, secret dealings with loan sharks, and cases of graft.
Other ores, mostly metals, shipped as ingots or pellets.

|Non-metals||13.5||45||27 x 2D|
Pallets Available: 1D.
Includes isotopes such as tritium, or refined trans-uranic elements such as plutonium. Highly radioactive, these substances are shipped in sealed radiation-proof containers.
Designed for safety, a chance breach (roll 12 on 2D if the ship is hit by enemy fire) will expose the crew to radiation sickness. The same effects on air filters will occur as with refined radioactives, but the sickness will be worse. Each 20 minutes of exposure will cause damage to all exposed personnel (1 hit point in MT, 1D wounds - or the equivalent - in other systems).
The entire vessel will need to be decontaminated by a damper crew at a starport (or a ship equipped with nuclear dampers may use them for this purpose).
|Substance||Volume (cu. m.)||Weight (T)||Price (MCr)||Displ Tons Avail|
Includes barium, molybdenum, yttrium, yterbium, niobium and others used in metal alloys. Especially important is lanthanum, the rare and precious substance used in jump coils and grids.
