Here we see CNS Peter Osterhaus, a Boyne-class replenishment ship owned by the Cascadian Navy, near the gas giant Betonica in the Tlix system (Cascadia 0706). The Cascadian Navy operates two of these vessels.

By the time of the Collapse in 2331 thirty-five Boyne-class ships were in commission with five major national navies and in eight system defense forces within both Earth and Clement sectors. Of that total, there were eleven stationed in Clement Sector of which the Royal Navy had three, the Republic of Australia Navy had one (RAS Manoora), the Cascadian Navy had two, the Monroe System Navy had one and the United States Space Navy had four (one was later destroyed at Sophronius (Hub 0408) during the initial exchange between Swanson loyalists and the USSN ships supporting Admiral Manning.

In addition, there is also the civilian variant of the Boyne, the Aranui-class medium cargo vessel. The Aranui-class began as a side project in 2320 by Anderson and Felix Shipbuilders seeking to reduce design time and costs by tweaking an existing medium freighter size vessel. As they were licensed originally to provide full maintenance and refit and had a full set of design plans it was decided to produce a civilian version of the Boyne squarely aimed at small merchant shipping companies and wealthier owner/captains.

Even with fifty percent of the profit per ship going to the owners of the Boyne-class design in Earth sector, Anderson and Felix turned over enough per construction order to make the design a profitable one. Now, post- Collapse, they are quite content to pour one hundred percent of sale profits back into the company.
There are over forty of the Aranui-class cargo vessels in service scattered throughout the Clement Sector hauling cargo at the current time. Anderson and Felix currently construct two or three per year as orders.

Both the Boyne-class replenishment ship and the Aranui-class medium cargo vessel can be found in Ships of Clement Sector 14: Boyne-class Replenishment Ship which will be released on June 17.

A successful support vessel with a long service history, the Boyne-class was designed for use by the Royal Navy but was a very successful export even before the ship entered service, eventually serving in national navies, system navies, and defense forces across Clement Sector.

“I think we have an important role, someone has to keep providing stuff to throw at the bad guys.” - Leutnant Hannah Schmidt, Senior supply officer, HFS James Joyce, Wellington c2339 CE

The Boyne-class Replenishment Ship is the subject of Ships of Clement Sector 14 which will be available from Gypsy Knights Games on June 17.

Hello again everyone!

I have several things to tell you today and all of them have to do with GKG's product updates. Again, I'd like to remind everyone that while these updates are to comply with changes in the Mongoose Traveller license, we have updated the material as well to go with the second edition of Clement Sector. We have also added material, variant ships, new artwork, and repaired errata.

First, we have Ships of Clement Sector 7-9: Defense Boats and Light Warships. This is a compilation and update of Ships of Clement Sector 7: Perth-class Frigate, Ships of Clement Sector 8: Berlin-class Colonial Destroyer, and Ships of Clement Sector 9: System Defense Boats. If you have purchased (or were gifted) any one of those products, you should be able to go to your updates on DTRPG and download a free copy of Ships of Clement Sector 7-9: Defense Boats and Warships.

If you have not purchased those products before and would like to purchase the newest version, go to this link: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/183563/Ships-of-Clement-Sector-79-Defense-Boats-and-Light-Warships-2nd-Edition-OGL

Second, we have Ships of Clement Sector 10-12: Workhorses. This is a compilation and update of Ships of Clement Sector 10: Lee-class Merchant Vessel, Ships of Clement Sector 11: Fedpost Mail Courier, and Ships of Clement Sector 12: Broken Hill-class Prospector. If you have purchased (or were gifted) any one of those products, you should be able to go to your updates on DTRPG and download a free copy of Ships of Clement Sector 10-12: Workhorses.

Third, we have bundled the updated Subsector Sourcebooks into The Clement Sector Subsector Pack. If your purchase all five books at once, this results in a 20% savings. You can buy the bundle here: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/183489/The-Clement-Sector-Subsector-Pack-OGL-Version-BUNDLE

And lastly, we have bundled the first twelve updated Ships of Clement Sector books into the Ships of Clement Sector 1-12 Pack. Purchasing all of them at once results in a 19% savings. You can buy the bundle here: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/183567/Ships-of-Clement-Sector-112-Pack-BUNDLE

Ships of Clement Sector 14: Boyne-class Replenishment Ship is now available!

Gypsy Knights Games is proud to present the fourteenth entry in our line of products dedicated to the starships of Clement Sector.

A successful support vessel with a long service history, the Boyne-class was designed for use by the Royal Navy but was a very successful export even before the ship entered service, eventually serving in national navies, system navies, and defense forces across Clement Sector.

“I think we have an important role, someone has to keep providing stuff to throw at the bad guys.” - Leutnant Hannah Schmidt, Senior supply officer, HFS James Joyce, Wellington c2339 CE

As part of the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence’s hull procurement program for the planned expansion of the Royal Navy a new class of mid-size replenishment ships were put into service in 2282. A total of twenty of the new Boyne-class replenishment ships were authorized for construction. The lead ship, HMS Boyne had only just been commenced when orders began to be sought from the United States, India, Australia, Russia and France who were all looking at newer, larger replenishment vessels to replace those currently in service.

Ships of Clement Sector 14: Boyne-class Replenishment Ship comes complete with beautiful views of the ship. The Boyne is presented with full deckplans and statistics to make your use of our product simple, easy and fun. In addition, the ship comes with a set of adventure hooks to get your characters right into the action as well as a short story written by Bradley Warnes.

This volume also includes the Aranui-class Medium Cargo Vessel. The Aranui is a civilian variant of the Boyne which was licensed originally to Anderson and Felix to provide full maintenance and refit. As they had a full set of design plans it was decided to produce a civilian version of the Boyne squarely aimed at small merchant shipping companies and wealthier owner/captains.

Though designed specifically with our Clement Sector setting in mind, these ships could easily be used in any science fiction setting.

Get on board! Adventure awaits!

Your project gets the green light!

The second edition of the Anderson and Felix Guide to Naval Architecture is now available in print (using 70 lb paper!) at Drive-thru RPG. You can purchase your copy at the link.

Currently the largest ship building company in Clement Sector, the Anderson and Felix Shipbuilders Company was started on Hub in 2299 by Jamie Anderson and Reynaldo Felix. Both Anderson and Felix brought to Clement Sector their considerable expertise and experience constructing space vessels for travel between Earth and the Earth Sector colonies. And now that expertise is in your hands!

Ranging from tiny ten tonne work pods to massive armored system defense monitors, the space ships of Clement Sector are as varied as the crews that operate them.

This book provides the tools for a naval architect to design small craft to huge in-system ships, trader or capital ship. They can install the latest technology to allow the ship to transit interstellar distances, use inertialess drives or to “ride fire “on a ship that uses spin gravity to provide for crew comfort. They can also design low technology missile armed warships or capital ships bristling with high energy weapons and ship killing torpedoes.

The book merges the adventure class ship and capital ship design sequences into a new design sequence that allows for better design flow.

Your tools await you!

Here we see a trio of the Boone Space Navy's Strikemaster-class brigs traveling alongside a Boyne-class replenishment ship.

The Boyne can carry up to ninety tonnes of equipment and provisions within port and starboard cargo holds. A further sixty tonnes of munitions are also carried in port and cargo magazines just forward of each cargo bay. Loading and unloading access to both the cargo holds and magazines is via large internal doors and external cargo locks. Adjacent to the externals doors is the ship’s Underway Replenishment equipment. The Boyne can simultaneously supply two warships, one per side via UNREP.
If the situation warrants it, the large port and starboard cargo doors can also drop down and extend, forming access ramps which allow easy loading and unloading of each cargo hold. Normally though the load master will use the grav lifters carried on board if the Boyne lands on a planetary surface.

The Boyne-class replenishment ship is the subject of Ships of Clement Sector 14 which will be available from Gypsy Knights Games on June 17.

Greetings again!

I have more updates for you today. As most of you know, with Mongoose's change to 2e, we have to change our product line over to be OGL rather than carry the Mongoose Traveller logo. Since we were going to have to spend all of this time, effort, and money on this, we also wanted to try to fix any errors, update some of the art, and improve the covers (Thanks Stephanie McAlea!) and so forth.

We also didn't want this to cost our existing customers any money. After all, it isn't YOUR fault that we must do this. Why should you have to pay to get these updates? So, if you have purchased the PDF of one of our books (or had it gifted to you), you can simply go to DTRPG or RPGNow, go to your updates page, and there is the OGL version for you for free.

Of course, if you have not purchased these, we hope you'll consider purchasing them now.

Today, I have two more for you:
