  • The Diver-Class Scout Ship Map

An old design, but a sturdy one! This humble starship will see you safely across the galaxy and back again.

Science fiction! It’s a theme that I have not explored nearly enough, but I hope to rectify that in the coming months. This is my first exercise, a starship roughly big enough for your average (space) adventuring party.

In drawing this I explored a lot of different reference material, and the end result is something inspired largely by Out of the Silent Planet, No Man’s Sky, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

I look forward to exploring even more of this genre, and hope to commit 1/3 of our monthly maps to it. Even if you strictly run medieval fantasy (like me), I hope that this art will be useful for fantasy tech, forerunner ruins, and all that fun sort of high-fantasy! 

So, is there anything in particular that I should try drawing? Please comment and let me know!

  1. Very cool! Would love to see options for cargo ships or space pirates / raiders (living and undead), especially, but anything in the Starfinder style of ship layouts would be great (things that whole parties would use).

    Thanks for these! Excited to see more!

  2. It is relatively easy to find starports and such (often Star Wars themed), but I like to see some large space station interiors. The docks where you have arrived; a hotel; passages; station central; freight handling equipment…. And/or any of those after some terrible alien thing started growing.

  3. Fantastic art as always! You couldn't have picked a better time for 'breaking into' sci-fi for me, as I recently started to run a Starfinder campaign. As suck I'd of course love to see more ships, space stations and maybe even different kinds of wacky and/or cool planets! Or what about the floating remains of some mysterious space creature for the adventurers to explore? Keep up the good stuff!

  4. Ross,
    I absolutely love that you are expanding into Sci-Fi. Your Scout Ship is already inspiring ideas for me. Unfortunately, it does not fit into my current campaign, but I’m already thinking of ways to fit it in.

    In any case, I have several suggestions for future work, including:
    – Mothership / Shuttle combo (probably larger / smaller than the Scout)
    – Once the Scout arrives at another system, there can be a lot to explore, like
    — Airless planets / moons
    — Breathable-air planets
    — Poisonous-gas planets
    — Gas giants, ocean worlds, super-hot, super-cold, locked planets (one side always facing star)
    – And, of course, any of the above could have creatures lurking
    – My personal favorite – Ruins of an ancient advanced civilization – abandoned. (or are they?)
    In any case, keep up the great work!

    Your patreon, in heart and fact,

    Steve

  5. Awesome! I have always used and loved your content, but when I recently switched to a sci fi campaign, I have had to stretch the cyberpunk assets! Excited to see what you make in the future! (Maybe some mech assets/tokens??). Thank you for all you do!

  6. I went to download, but it seems that the assets are not included in the non-pack master zip or the dungeondraft file.

    1. The free pack’s deck plan assets are in the Master Zip/Diver-Class Scout Ship/Assets... directory. If you’re looking for all the extracted assets, those are exclusive to the premium pack. 🙂

  7. Amazing work as usual. And good amount of places for aliens to lay hidden eggs. Maybe we can crash this ship next?!?! Something like your shipwreck assets?

    Cheers
    OW

David’s Prints

David recently tweeted me his quality prints of the Blacksmith and Trusty Tavern, and I just had to share them here. Each map is printed at the store and glued to cardboard before being touched up with a black marker around the edges and reinforced with clear tape. If you like David’s style, he keeps a
