ISSF-23 Wasp

By:

Small, fierce, and prone to coming in swarms, the Wasp is a common Intra-System Superiority Fighter.

Full Item Description

The ISSF-23 "Wasp" starfighter bears a vague resemblance to the insect namesake; the main body of the light fighter curls beneath it, bearing the fusion plant that drives the entire vessel as well as the most potent weapon aboard the ship itself, the Variable Missile System. Perched above the main body, curled like an attacking wasp to reduce the overall area exposed to the enemy, the cockpit is a glistening blister of metal and chrome, flanked by a pair of hardpoints for mounting weaponry and ammunition feeds.

Thruster ports set in a rough diamond shape give the craft a fair turn of speed, particularly joined with the light mass of the vessel itself; nearly devoid of armor, the Wasp relies far more on agility and speed to outrun the tracking ability of any guns trained on it than any durability of the vessel itself.

History

Because someone had a bunch of wannabe hotshot pilots and needed a cheap fighter.

"Because someone had a bunch of wannabe hotshot pilots and needed a cheap fighter."


I am already a little geeked about this one, and the above suggestion makes me think this could be a fun read.

It seemed like a great place to camp. The clearing was good sized and sheltered from the wind. The brook just a few feet away. There is a natural hallow to keep the horses.

Then the night came.

It was like it became a different place. The temperature dropped. The wind, which does not seem to disturb cloth, almost cuts through you like an arctic wind. No one can sleep, as the soft ground has turned hard. The horses are uneasy. The Bats are flying over and stopping in the trees.

And then there is the eyes. There are glowing eyes just inside the tree line watching your group. The mages and clerics can detect nothing, but there is still something there.

(yet there is nothing at all... The Darkness will do nothing unless the players do something to it. And even then it will all seem to be a conincidence.)

Of course, in the morning, it all becomes sweet and light.
