Starships are designed with the Classic Traveller format, using High Guard Shipyard v1.13 written by Andrea Vallance.

The Castle class Sloop is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The conical hull is lightly armored with a vast cargo bay for supplies which facilitate extended patrols. They are usually built to TL-11 standards (...although often refitted with TL–12 armament); they are slower than most warships, but more heavily armed than most buccaneer ships. They also feature high endurance; they are designed to remain on station in a zone for eight or more weeks, patrolling for pirates, reavers or other bandits. It carries bigger drives as a bigger, improved Flower class with enough fuel for a Jump-3.
