ISSF-23 Wasp


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.


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.

Having left the hush of the upper halls, and crossed the depths of the Braeth (an underground river, which is not all that deep because bear in mind we're talking about gnomes here), you would find yourself in Wattling Street, the main road through Udnalor. It's actually a long, well-worn passageway which opens out eventually into the City Centre. The gnome-buildings branch off Wattling Street as small burrows or caverns with boulder-blocked doorways for privacy. You can find armourers and smiths (though their armour tends to be on the small side for humans to buy) and many other types of trader.

There are many streets, ginnels and cooies which run off Wattling Street, the most famous probably being Smell Street, the domain of the infamous gnomish alchemists, the eponymous smell being very distinctive: the stench of cooking fungus, the aroma of subterranean spices, the pungent reek of rotting carcasses (used in some of the more notorious experiments). An encounter with an alchemist can really be spiced up (excuse the pun) if you have a well-stocked herb cupboard, and actually make up the potions, elixirs and draughts as they are ordered by characters.
