Traveller: Eagle 5 Recreational Vehicle
Whenever you make a new career, class, spell, power, or whatever, sometimes you want to come up with something completely original, something no one has seen before. Other times, you want to make a homage to something you absolutely love in movies or tv. The same goes true with vehicles in Traveller.
Recently, I rewatched Spaceballs. That movie will NEVER get old as far as I am concerned. Remaking Spaceball One would be … insanity-inducing. The stat block would be fine, but mapping the thing would probably kill me. The Eagle 5, Lone Star’s Winnebago, now that is much more doable. In fact, it works better as a vehicle than as a ship because of how it is used in the movie. As a vehicle, the only thing it is missing is the “secret hyper jets.” Everything else is there, even the ability to “jam” radar.
If you want to see more vehicles this is one, be sure to pick up the upcoming Solormani Worlds: Vehicle from the Rim. While you are waiting for this, check out all of our careers, ships, space stations, and more for Traveller at DriveThruRPG.
