GM Background for Crash on Volturnus

<!--[if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 <![endif]--><!--[if !mso]> <![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 10]> <![endif]-->



       Truane’s Star is officially ruled by a republican form of government from the planet of Pale. New Pale is an agriculture colony and has the status of territory with limited representation (2 representatives). New Pale is administered by a governor that is appointed by the president. The colonists of New Pale enjoy citizenship rights as well as an exemption on income tax as an inducement to move to the colony planet.

            Pale is the headquarters of the Frontier’s second megacorp, Streel. Being headquartered here gives Streel quite a bit of weight with the government but their campaign contributions have all but bought the corporation control of the government.

     A division within the company, Resource Acquisition & Development (RAD) has committed a huge chunk of its budget toward campaign contributions. It was decided that new exploration was more costly than stealing the resources of others. The RAD has plans in place to take over the agriculture resources of New Pale as well as usurping the mineral rights of the Zebulon system which are currently owned by the Pale Republic.

            The plan for New Pale is to create a crisis that requires nationalization of the farming operations followed by legislation appointing Streel to manage them. Since the population of Pale would starve without the food shipments form New Pale it’s been relatively easy to engineer a crisis.

            The Palonite military under the auspices of Pale Aerospace Command (PAC) was responsible for exploring the Zebulon system but did little since the discovery of the system. Once they finally sent a manned expedition, Streel was forced to take action lest their secret mining operation on Volturnus be discovered. Contact was lost six months ago when the expedition entered orbit around Volturnus. Streel’s interference has not only caused the long delay in sending a rescue expedition but has forced its way onto the expedition which is now a joint venture with PAC.

            With the percolating crisis on New Pale caused by a new terrorist group and the colonists’ resistance to the government’s first move at nationalization of the farms, the government has a low priority on exploiting its rights to Zebulon. Streel has all but taken over the rescue mission and has had to scramble for personnel to man the mission. Luckily, a new draft of new employees has arrived in Truane’s Star expecting to take low level technician and security jobs and they’re about to be “volunteered” for the mission or discharged from company service. The company will of course turn over the names of those discharged to Pale’s Selective Service Corp which is charged with raising several drafted regiments of Peace Keepers for the impending civil disturbances on New Pale.



PC Backgrounds and NPC Contacts

<!--[if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 <![endif]--><!--[if !mso]> <![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 10]> <![endif]-->

Player Character Backgrounds:


            Players will most likely begin as the Streel new hires that are forced to transfer to PEST. At GM discretion they could also be PAC personnel from the regular militia or from the ESO depending on the character created and the player’s temperament.

            The culture of Pale’s space navy is very patriotic in nature with a strong belief in the constitution. There is near universal resentment toward Streel and politicians who appear to be sell outs to the mega corp. The Exploration & Sciences Organization (ESO), though under military control, is largely staffed with civilian contractors.


NPC contacts for the Player Characters:

NPC contacts encourage role playing as the help or information that they can provide is only obtainable through role play. They also provide the GM with a voice in the adventure but that should be limited to hints. The PCs should ask for information and the NPC would not be overly helpful without good reason. Provide the PCs and opportunity to interact with their NPC contacts and to shop for any equipment they can afford before they embark on the Serrena Dawn. The info that they may generate in this way should not give them the whole picture as to what is going on though the developments on New Pale could be used as a distraction (red herring).


Lucritia Dolores, a writer for The Star Republic, an independent and conservative periodical with largely electronic distribution. Lucritia is known for her patriotic and anti-Streel views. She is a critical analyst on politics and mega corps. Her contact with a PC could be as family (distant cousin) or through past association (knew each other in school but not necessarily close). She’ll gladly answer questions or research info concerning her areas of expertise since she often feels frustrated over Streels seeming control of the government and would welcome a sympathetic ear. She could easily find a corporate division report on RAD (Resource Acquisition & Developement) if asked.


Ch’S’R T’Seck of House Ch’S’R. House Ch’S’R is a vursk trade house, focusing on accounting and are reputed to be among the premier accounting firms in the Frontier. T’Seck's expertise are in accounting and finds the changes in budgeting at RAD interesting as well as the fact that House Ch’S’R no longer audits RAD’s books just reviews a prepared book that seems a little too prepared. House Ch’S’R is still retained for accounting all other departments and divisions at the Streel headquarters. His association with a PC could be familial; in the case of a vursk PC or through prior business association (maybe he audited the books for the PC’s family’s business and is known to the PC).


Bork the Bartender (race can be flexible for this character), Bork is a ne’r do well and spacer with a checkered past who has settled into bartending. His lack of respect for authority bounced him out of 2 separate militia organizations. He was in the 1st Common Muster and has little love for pirates but keeps his finger on the pulse of criminal activity in the capitol of Pale as his bar is in one of the seeder neighborhoods. He’s an astute judge of the character. His association with a PC would most likely derive from the PC knowing a friend of his who told them to look him up.


Saleck Chin (any race) is an aging scientist (lvl 6 environmental skill) in the ESO. He is a civilian contractor and is biding his time till retirement next year. He will in no way jeopardize his pension but is generally unhappy with interference by Streel in the Zebulon Survey Project that first started with loss of funding for the ESO and now the usurpation of the Volturnus mission by Streel. He’s well versed in environmental issues concerning Pale and New Pale and the astro sciences of Truane’s Star. His association with a PC could be as past professor for a PC with a physco-social PSA or as a friend of someone known to the PC or as past professional association if the PC’s background started him as part of the ESO.


Sgt. Grick (any race) is a true blue patriotic Pale citizen and career militia spacer. Words like crusty and salty come to mind for those asked to describe him. He works hard and parties hard with a fondness for strong drink. He recently dodged “the bullet” avoiding transfer to Training Command to be a drill sgt. for the new Peace Keeper force (an occupation force being raise to strong arm New Pale). He has family on New Pale and is disgusted with the prospect of being ordered to take action against them. His new assignment is as quartermaster sgt. and maybe able to issue some non-weapon equipment to the PCs party by virtue of some creative paperwork and or proper paperwork issued by the PCs but coached by him. His association with a PC in the military PSA would be through past professional association especially if the PCs background started him as a member of the militia or of the ESO.


Barlow Kuman, is an undercover star law agent (real name is ?). He has been investigating RAD and may decide to provide some help to the PCs on the down low as long as it doesn’t risk his cover. He’s obtained a support personnel position at RAD’s headquarters.

SF:2KH "Liberation of Volturnus"

A Knight Hawks aftermath game for the Volturnus Adventure

The epic conclusion to the greatest SF game ever!


Following the Battle of Volturnus between the Sathar and the united native races of the new world (and perhaps after exhausting the additional adventures on page 32 of the SF:2 module), characters could be in a position to acquire starship skills (or pretty close to it). Either way, the KH game can still be conducted.

The Eorna have discovered a squadron of heavy fighters that they once used long ago, along with a secondary squadron of deactivated Mechanon fighters. Having deduced that these craft can be up and running with minimal effort, they have decided to take the fight to the worms with one final punch to the backs of their worm-skulls. Long range sensors report a massive exodus of shuttles returning ground troops and equipment to waiting transports. Even though the battle of Volturnus is over, both the Eorna and the adventurous heroes agree to pursue the worms a little further just to insure they never return to Volturnus again!

Of course if players lost the ground battle against the Sathar during the course of SF:2 Starspawn on Volturnus, this game can still serve as a turning point as the Truane's Star/Streel/UPF ships make their way to Volturnus to take charge...

If players with Technical or Military PSA characters have sufficient XP to advance toward LVL:1 starship skills, allow them to man a few of the Eorna craft as Pilots, Engineers, and/or Gunners (energy gunners may man the laser turret, rocket gunners may assist the pilot with the forward firing rockets). As such, the game can be conducted using the shaded columns of the KH attack table with skill bonuses. If the players lack the XP, any/all characters may still man the same systems (ultimately the better of the scenarios to maximize player participation), although as such an Eorna pilot will man the helm. In this case use the unshaded columns with no skill bonuses. In either situation, the Mechanon fighters are robotic and unmanned (and will attack as LVL:1 pilots if the shaded columns are used).

--- Part Two ---

While the Volturnus Squadrons were engaging the Sathar transports, the main bevy of Sathar warships ventured into deep space to engage allied craft comprising the Truane's Star government, Streel (who co-financed the Volturnus expeditions), and the UPF. While this board game has no direct impact on the player characters, it can be portrayed to determine the final outcome of the Sathar/Volturnus War.

Game #1: the Volturnus Squadrons

The Eorna and Mechanon fighter craft take the battle to the worms this time, in a free for all in space! Sathar transports are positioned around Volturnus, collecting the retreating troops and their equipment. Several dozen shuttlecraft are making their way back to their host craft in order to retreat back to their homeworlds. The heroes of Volturnus have decided to land one final blow against these invading foes to ensure they never forget their humiliating defeat at Volturnus.

--- Set Up ---



15 Sathar Destroyers

7 Sathar Light Cruisers

25 Sathar Fighters

6 UPF Fighters

6 UPF Assault Scouts
1 Planet counter

Place a planet counter at the center of the fold out hex map. The 15 Sathar Destroyer counters represent Sathar troop transports recovering Sathar warriors, the 7 light cruiser counters represent freighters recovering equipment and cyber-beasts. The 25 Sathar fighters represent shuttles. All transports start at a speed of zero, shuttles are moving at a speed of three hexes per turn. Troop transports can be placed anywhere but no closer than 6 hexes to the planet, freighters can be placed anywhere no closer than ten hexes to the planet. Shuttles can be placed anywhere, no closer than four hexes away from any transports or three hexes to the planet.

The UPF fighters represent Mechanon fighters, the assault scouts are the Eorna heavy fighters. They may begin in any hex orbiting the planet and facing any direction away from the planet (as facing the planet would result in a crash landing), with a speed of 1 hex/turn.

Replacements: none, although every three turns (during the repair turn) two sathar shuttles can leave Volturnus' surface (as PC craft, starting with a speed of 1 hex/turn in any orbit hex around the planet) for every three that were destroyed or recovered. This represents the sheer number of shuttle craft that landed versus the limited number of transports that remained to collect them (as there were heavy troop and equipment losses during the ground battle).

--- Special Rules ---

> Eorna fighters must land on the surface in order to resupply their rockets. They must end their turn in orbit with a speed of zero, the next turn they may enter the atmosphere. The third turn is spent on the ground, by the fourth turn they may exit the atmosphere and rejoin the battle (craft leaving the atmosphere begin with a speed of 1 and may face any direction away fromthe planet in one of the six orbit hexes around the planet). Care must be taken during these maneuvers...as the Eorna fighters can become sitting ducks to any nearby Sathar transports. No repairs can be made during the re-entry or take off turns (although if the repair turn comes up during the rearming turn, repairs can be effected).

> Sathar craft must have matching velocities and direction in order for the shuttles to dock. Both ships must be in the same hex to enable this. A freighter can recieve four shuttles, a troop transport can recieve eight, but once a freighter takes on three shuttles or a troop transport recieves six they will attempt to leave the board (although more shuttles may dock if they can match speed and direction). Craft that make it off the board with a minimum compliment of shuttles are out of play and can be considered as safely retreated from the skirmish.

--- New Equipment ---
Forward Firing Rockets (FFR): Simply put, the FFR is a set of fixed launchers similar to those found on a Rocket Battery, but instead of having a 360º field of fire they are forward firing weapons. Damage Table Modifiers are as a RB system, 2d10 with a range of 40,000km (four hexes), treat as an assault rocket for the resolution (head on bonuses are applicable). Restrictions are FF, MPO, LTD

Laser Turret (LT): A smaller scale version of a Laser Battery. Treat as a LB for all regards with a range of 40,000km (four hexes).

Pod Laser (PL): As described in Dragon Magazine, the Pod Laser is a set of laser cannons (down scaled laser battery guns) fixed to a fighter's hull. Treat as a Laser Cannon for combat resolution, 1d10 damage and a range of 50,000km (five hexes).

--- Victory Conditions ---

The Volturnus Squadrons must destroy at least 8 troop transports and four freighters

Sathar must evacuate at least 8 troop transports each having recovered at least six shuttles, and 4 freighters each having recovered at least three shuttles.

If fewer than 8 transports/4 freighters escape or 8/4 escape without the minimum compliment of shuttles and all Volturnus forces are destroyed in the process, it is a draw (note that characters may bail out of destroyed craft, to be picked up later by a reserve Eorna craft).

--- Experience Rewards ---

Award 2-6XP per player based on participation (2 for low participaiton, 4 for medium, 6 for highly active). Double XP rewards if the Volturnus Squadrons achieve their goals.

Game #2: The Battle of Zebulon

The Sathar artifact on Volturnus sent out a subspace transmission the moment it detected approaching spacecraft. By the time anyone had discovered it, things were already set into motion. The Sathar battle fleet arrived in Zebulon, bent on destroying any life on Volturnus' surface. Nonetheless, a call was sent out to Truane's Star, who responded with confirmation of dispatching warships of their own. Sadly the worms were already en route long before the Truane's Star government could muster up an offensive, hence the large scale ground battle between the natives of Volturnus and the worms.

But the Truane's Star government did make it to Zebulon while the Sathar were present, despite the immense ground warfare going on. This is the tale of that epic deep space battle, where allied forces comprised of Palean militia vessels, Streel Corporation ships, and detached duty UPF warships acted together in an attempt to cleanse the newly discovered system of the Sathar threat once and for all. 

--- Set Up ---


1 Sathar Heavy Cruiser
1 Sathar Assault Carrier
5 Sathar Destroyers
1 Sathar Frigate
10 Sathar Fighters
3 Pirate Corvettes
1 Pirate Frigate

1 UPF Light Cruiser
1 UPF Destroyer
2 UPF Frigates
1 white on orange Frigate
2 white on orange Assault Scouts
1 black on gray Frigate
3 black on gray Assault Scouts
1 freighter
6 UPF fighters
black on lt green Frigate
white on dk blue Frigate
white on dk blue Assault Scout
black on yellow Frigate
white on brown Frigate

All Sathar counters represent their respective craft. The three pirate Corvette counters represent the Gunned Scout Ships and the pirate frigate counter represents the supply ship.

The UPF Cruiser and destroyer counters represent their respective craft, the two UPF frigates represent the assault transports. The white on orange counters represent the Pale militia craft (frigate = frigate and assault scouts = gunned escorts), the black on gray counters represent the Streel ships (frigate = corproate frigate and assault scouts = merchant scouts). The freighter counter represents Streel's carrier conversion, and the 6 UPF fighters represent the Streel fighters.

The four colored frigates each represent a government subsidized craft: black on lt green Frigate = Anchor, black on yellow Frigate
 = Fathom, white on dk blue Frigate = Steelwagon, white on dk blue Assault Scout = Solar Flare, and white on brown Frigate = Trudger.

Allied forces may begin the game on the left side of the fold out hex map, no more than ten hexes inside the left border. Sathar forces begin at the right side of the map, no more than ten hexes inside the right border. All craft have a start speed of 10 hexes/turn.

Replacements: none

--- Special Rules ---

The Sathar Supply Ship will not engage in the battle, rather it will hover near the right edge of the map. At least one gunned scout ship will remain behind to escort the supply ship. Any Sathar craft that dock with the supply ship (matching speed and direction in the same hex) can rearm itself. In addition, any sathar ship docked to the supply ship during the repair round may utilize up to half of the supply ship's DCR in addition to the docked vessel's own DCR for repair attempts. Naturally the Sathar should place a priority on defending this vital craft if any enemy craft venture toward its proximity.

--- New Equipment ---

Same as Game #1

--- Victory Conditions ---

The Allied Forces must destroy at least half of the Sathar capital ships (cruiser, carrier, destroyers, and frigate), including the heavy cruiser. In addition, the supply ship must be destroyed as well. Once this requirement is met, remaining Sathar craft will attempt to retreat from the battle and escape (possibly taking out any pursuing craft with them, up to and including ramming). Fighters without a carrier to return to will continue fighting to cover the retreat, once this is effected they will attempt to ram any allied craft.

The Sathar Fleet must destroy at minimum all of the Pale militia craft, the Streel corporate frigate, UPF light cruiser, and the destroyer. Once this requirement is met, remaining Allied Craft must retreat and escape.

Any other outcome is a draw.

Zoological Catalog of Volturnus Species

The following is a catalog of the non sapient species identified by the first two Volturnus Survey Expeditions. Left off this list are the magma monster and the rogue crystals. Evidence for the existence of these two creatures is extremely thin or non existent. While the position of the University of Zebulon is that the members of the survey expeditions undoubtably encountered something Science is unable to credit the existence of these fantastic creatures at this time.

NOTE: Some changes and revisions appear in this catalog over the original material. The tangler vine has been moved to the botanical report being deemed to be purely a plant despite the demonstration of rudimentary animal intelligence. Finally it is important to note that Star Law has redacted significant portions of this report in connection with classified information concerning sathar creatures introduced to the Volturnus ecosystem.
