Airship Rules

Airships are divided into five size categories: Small, Medium, Large, Huge, and Gargantuan. The size category of an airship determines its base stats.

Table: Airship Chassis
Size Acc/TS Climb Toughness Crew Engines Spaces Cost
Small 10/120 1 14 (2) 2 1 10 $5,000
Medium 10/100 0 16 (2) 4 2 20 $10,000
Large 10/80 -1 18 (2) 8 4 40 $20,000
Huge 5/60 -2 20 (2) 15 6 75 $35,000
Gargantuan -2 5/40 22 (2) 30 8 100 $50,000

Acc/TS, Climb, Toughness, and Crew are defined in the Savage Worlds Deluxe Edition p. 58.

Engines is the minimum number of engines that size category of airship must mount to get anywhere. Additional engines may be added to increase performance.

Spaces are an abstract measurement combining available room and lifting capacity an airship has for things like passengers, cargo, supplies, and modifications. Spaces not assigned to improvements or emergency passenger berths can be filled with cargo and supplies.

Cost is the approximate value, in barter, of the given size of airship with the minimum number of engines attached.
