The goal of this project is to print an original starship deckplan poster, cast a fleet of matching miniatures, and get them to you before the end of November. Links to digital documents will be provided to fully detail the ship and its interior.
Xuan Wu is a leisure transport – a small cruise ship designed to carry passengers in style. Named for the Black Tortoise constellation of Chinese mythology, this sturdy craft has two dozen passenger cabins, plus extensive lounge, dining, and entertainment facilities. She supports a crew of twelve humans plus a cadre of mechanical assistants, has an ample cargo bay, and carries a small shuttle pod plus half a dozen life boats.
U.S. Shipping is $6 for all pledge levels.
International shipping is $15 for single items and $24 for multiple items ($10 and $16 for Canada). Rewards will be shipped using USPS first class mail from Pittsburgh.
The centerpiece of the campaign is a 24x36 inch, two-sided, full-color poster featuring complete deckplans for the Xuan Wu leisure transport. The maps are scaled at 1 inch = 5 feet and have a 1-inch grid built into the floor. They are shipped rolled rather than folded. The map stretches across both sides of the poster. Since two copies are needed to display the entire ship at once, a pair of posters is offered at a special price.
The custom miniature is professionally cast in durable, high-detail resin. Each one comes with a hexagon-shaped, 1-inch, clear acrylic flight stand and is ready to paint and play. The miniature itself is about 1 and a half inches long.
Xuan Wu is from an upcoming issue of the digital 0-hr: Armada Codex. That issue is included at all pledge levels and other issues can be found at RPGNow & DriveThruRPG. The PDF document includes room by room descriptions and suggested statistics for the ship, as well as deckplans broken into printable pages. Additional renderings are included as are large digital images of the poster for use online or with a projector. Before the end of the campaign, Xuan Wu Starfinder statistics will be available for free on my Port Zero page.
If you want to add any posters or miniatures to your order, use the “Manage Pledge” button in the upper right (or mouse-over your reward) to manually increase your pledge. The end-of-campaign survey will let you specify what any extra money is for and I’ll bundle everything together. The available posters, ships, and prices can all be found on my Zero Hour Shop page ( http://0-hr.com/Shop ). If you have pledged for one of the combos, then additional Xuan Wu posters are $10 and additional Xuan Wu miniatures are $6. Otherwise posters are $20 and miniatures are $9. With add-ons, total shipping is $6 / $16 / $24 for the US / Canada / the rest of the world.
As a small token of my appreciation, I will create an original 3D rendering or image of these ships for every $1000 by which the goal is exceeded. These images will be included with the digital reward files exclusively for backers.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this campaign. Set a course for adventure and add Xuan Wu to your fleet today!
Risks and challenges
The map images and miniatures are already made, so the only real risk is that shipping could be delayed for some reason. I am personally handling the shipping so I can ensure that it will be my highest priority when the campaign ends. If demand exceeds my initial estimates, there could be a delay while more materials are produced, but this would not be more than a couple of weeks at most.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
