d100 Post crash space infrastructure modules 2

Last table I did on this was a while ago but i miss SF which Psychon let me put in (or any genre) so i miss it. I dream of space ruins lots so will do a space wreck table and alien artifact encounter table too. These are for super structure modules not colony modules so more systems of ship than intended for colonists.Colony modules could have all been deployed or still in place.

30th C version of my SF game. In sub space sargassms, ships lost in the void collide and may form vast rafts of space wrecks. Formed from the flotsam and jetsam of space and time, the wreck mass  can partially manifests in local anomalies from time to time leaving stardrives in a system which is how most races develop FTL. There are multiple such masses at least four with dozens of local manifestations.

Handy for planet Psychon with all those unused orbital colony ships too or Metamorphisis Alpha.

See Pandorum, it is a awesome film of the genre, Non Stop by Brian Aldiss good too

  1. Nicely done! And so comprehensive.

  2. I think an expanded faction table might be handy too to run as sandbox - usable in metamorphosis alpha gamma world planet psychon, any space opera - might run as a con game later in year

  3. "Mostly without atmosphere but robots and androids have built a haven away from humans and relocated manufacturing here to breed in safety from the ignorant meat beings"

    I was just thinking, so often when you have rogue machines they are really overt, walking around, telling the humans they are going to kill them, gun fights etc. It might be really creepy to have the machines just act exactly as they are supposed to when the humans are around. Pretty much nothing the humans do will make the machines act differently than they are supposed to. The humans are left wondering if there is even something going on at all, except that people keep turning up dead. And they don't know which machines are working correctly and which are just faking it, but they have no choice except to keep using the machines because we rely on them so much. But if you trust the wrong machine you are screwed.

    2 Benevolant AI controlled for good of ship life as is now
    3 Insane AI controlled, benevolent despot with few eccentric bugs
    4 Insane AI controlled, paranoid tyrant and secretive
    5 Insane AI controlled, conqueror seeks power over all

    7 Independent and cooperative with biologicals and ship
    8 Independent and hostile to organics
    9 Virus but pretend to be "normal"
    10 Virus but superficially "normal"
