Deck Plan 3: Empress Marava are deck plans for this 200 ton Far Trader.

  • It is available in two different grid layouts; 1 hex (1") = 1 yard and 1 square (1.5") = 1.5 meters.
  • Alternative overlay sheets allow for variant models with either greater cargo capacity and Jump-1 (A1 variant), a low berth transport (Queen Helena variant), or carrying three Rampart Fighter craft (Empress Arbellatra variant).

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Empress Marava class Far Trader is a tough, long range cargo ship. It's a favorite of many adventurous traders... which probably includes the PCs in your campaign.

This big package shows every detail of a Marava on 16 two-sided maps ... hexes on one side and squares on the other, to fit any campaign! Also included is a sheet of Cardboard Heroes miniatures to crew your Marava, and a large cargo-hauling air/raft.
