Lunar-Class Cruiser "His Express Permission"

>Weaponry
Prow: Mars-pattern Torpedo Tubes
Port and starboard Fore: Jovian-pattern Missile Battery
Port and starboard Aft: Titanforge-pattern Lance Battery

>Critical Components
Bridge type: Exploration Bridge (Optimized for exploration and scouting, it improves augur use and allows for more accurate navigation.)
Plasma Drive: Jovian-pattern Plasma Drive 4 (Ancient plasma drive pattern, more efficient than modern drives.)
Warp Drive: Miloslav H.616-b (Twice as fast as comparable modern warp drives, but prone to attracting attention in the warp...)
Gellar Field: Strelov-pattern Gellar Field ("Shaped" to allow for faster warp travel. Difficult to repair due to antiquity. Considered unlucky.)
Void Shields: Mars-Pattern Void Shield
Augurs: Deep Void Auger Array (More sensitive and powerful than standard Augers, draws more power. See Archaeotech Components for more.)
Life Sustainer: Modified Solar-Pattern life sustainer (Retrofitted with modern components to repair damage, it is better at purification and more efficient than modern systems.)

Adamantium Armor: Additional armor plated over the vessel.
Armored Prow: Extra fore armor and increased damage when ramming.

Librarium Vault: Ancient collection of writings and data accumulated by the ship. Contains ancient knowledge that might not be available elsewhere.
Munitorum: Shipboard armory that allows for equipping of crew in event of boarding and transport of exotic munitions for macrobatteries.
Observation Dome: Offers an unrestricted view of the void. Possesses Warp filters to allow use during warp travel and retractible adamantium shell.

Now you and your crew have been ordered to the foreboding reaches of the Mylas Cloud, to investigate a recent increase in the sighting of Ork vessels and raiders. In addition, you have been ordered to escort a troop convoy to the world of Oxydas 9, a key node in the Ellard’s Gauntlet warp route, to bolster this distant outpost’s planetary defense force.

Your aide, a young ensign by the name of Avalyn Domino, climbs out of the sensorium pit onto the main bridge deck with a dataslate in hand. With a few smooth flicks, your circular captain’s chair descends to the deck, the brass armature that attaches it to the bridge’s vaulted ceiling giving a whispering creak as it retracts back to the balcony that overlooks the narrow command bridge. It docks into its ornate arch, and your aide climbs up to you.

“Captain, we have achieved a successful transition. Coordinates 68.3 by 58.9 by 1 of the Oxydas system, just beyond the orbital limit of Oxydas 12,” the young ensign reports as she hands you a data-slate with the most recent readings from the ship’s electronic eyes. “‘Aethera Maximus’ has reported in, but no signs yet of ‘Kyrgy’s Prize’ or ‘Goliath.’”

“Very good, Mr. Domino. Carry on.” You dismiss the junior officer and turn your attention to the data-slate. You glance at it, quickly picking out key data points thanks to the time you spent performing the same duty for the late captain. Now that it’s your turn to sit in the captain’s chair, you’re grateful you survived the experience.

Do you guys think that FFG will ever make an Imperial Navy-centred RPG, like what they've done with Only War and Deathwatch? Or is it more likely that they'll release an expansion book for Only War that will let your run campaigns for the Imperial Navy?

>Okay, so this is something of an experiment. It’s a one-shot, self-contained quest that can be run over 1 to 4 sessions.

The ship shudders as it breaks the barrier between realspace and the insanity of the warp, and the high-pitched shrieking of the transition alarm fades away. Around you, the background murmur picks up again as the bridge crew begins to collate the readings of the auger arrays and internal sensors and the rumble of the plasma drive replaces the ghostly silence of the warp engine. Heavy clangs echo as the armored shutters withdraw, revealing a starscape dominated by clouds of ice dust and a distant, pale blue star.

You are Tristan Walnacht, 4th lieutenant of Battlefleet Victorum and the senior officer of the scout frigate “Starflare.” Eight years of service in the Imperial Navy have seen you serve on everything from garbage scows and scuttled hulks to attack carriers and grand cruisers, in positions ranging from gunnery officer to sensorium agent to Navigator’s aide, providing you with a broad breadth of experience in the activities and necessities of an Imperial warship. Only 26 years of age, you would normally be a simple bridge officer. However, the senior officers were slain at the hands of the Ethereal Tear corsair band six months ago during the battle for the “Pilgrim of Terra,” forcing you and other junior officers to take command. The fact that you led the final counterattack which recovered the “Pilgrim” prompted Battlefleet to promote you to the minimum rank necessary to captain a ship.

Now you and your crew have been ordered to the foreboding reaches of the Mylas Cloud, to investigate a recent increase in the sighting of Ork vessels and raiders. In addition, you have been ordered to escort a troop convoy to the world of Oxydas Nine, a key node in the Ellard’s Gauntlet warp route, to bolster this distant outpost’s planetary defense force.

I've taken over the world. There is now a universal currency, no more import and export restrictions, no more borders in the world, no more criminals hiding in distant countries, no more untouchable crime lords, no more discrimination from your country of origin, no more wars, no more people fighting for immigration, and no more conflicts of international law.

Yet you come here with intent to bring about my death, do you really want to take all this away from people?

So, FFG has released Space Marine RPGs, Inquisition RPGs, Rogue Trader RPGs and soon an Imperial Guard RPG.

What about an Imperial Navy RPG? Does /tg/ think that will work, or would it just be another expansion book like Book of Judgement and the Sister of Battle book?
