Table of Modified Cosmic Patrol Cutters

On Friday, FATE SF published an intro to the Cosmic Patrol RPG, as well as a conversion to FATE of a Cosmic Patrol Cutter vessel, the workhorse three person tramp vessel that is the hallmark of the Cosmic Patrol. As a tramp vessel, it is highly customized - much more so than the purpose built Patrol Cruisers. And cutters also fall into the hands of pirates, smugglers, and spies! So here is a table with several different modifications on the Patrol Cutter design.

Roll 1d6-1d6.


The Patrol Cutter:
-5    Has a cloaking system
-4    Has a torpedo launcher
-3    Has a plasma weapon
-2    Has a grappling system for space salvage and/or boarding
-1    Has equipment to suppress other vessels' fractum drives
 0    Has no fractum drive
+1   Is drifting without signs of life, and is...
  • Roll a 1d6:
    • If 1-3, broadcasting an automatic distress signal
    • If 4- 6, ominously silent
+2   Has been Beowulfed, and is now a tramp merchant
+3   Has been Grendeled, and is now a pirate vessel
+4   Is now crewed by robots (flying under the flag of Planet Metalloid)
+5   Has alien markings on the hull
