This product is designed to be 100% description in order to make it rules-neutral and therefore useable by any sci-fi genre game. The product is very gamesmaster friendly as it includes not only the general information but if filled with narrative sections that the gamesmaster could read aloud to his group or paraphase as he sees fit. Spaceport Trident Vespa has a troubling past and currently stands as a spot for traders with more ethically legal cargo or questionable business practices. Since the construction of the spaceport it has been plagued with a number of strange accidents that have made it not viable for regular commercial traffic, but a good stopover for those willing to accept some risk.
The spaceport can cater to large cargo ships, smaller vessels and even atmospheric craft in its 3-pronged runway system.
Narrative text is extensive in this product providing the gamesmaster with both ground level and bird?s eye narrative descriptions on most of the locations. Though the product is stat-free there are a number of vital statistics provided in the product including size of the facility, number of employees, and description of security personnel. The final section of the product provides advice as to how to bring this mini-setting to life as well as providing a handful of plot devices to get your game rolling.
The layout of the product is clean and the editing is perfect.
LIKED: Lots of narrative guidance.
Five very good plot hooks provided.
Sound advice on using this setting.
DISLIKED: Lack of background smugglers/criminals. The addition of a couple smuggler or criminal groups would have been nice addition to breathe more life into the product.
Lack of specific locations. It would have been nice to have one or two locations, stores, repair shops, administrative offices et cetra.
QUALITY: Very Good
VALUE: Very Satisfied
