Automated Spacecraft Generator

Made to be used with Star Dogs: https://lizardmandiaries.blogspot.com/2019/11/star-dogs-players-handbook.html

To generate a random spacecraft, first decide whether it is an alien or human spacecraft . Roll on the appropriate “Spacecraft Form” table to get a general idea for the ship’s shape. From then, the generation tables/buttons are the same for both alien or human spacecrafts.

Click on the buttons to generate a spacecraft! 

The raw tables can be found below.
(Automated using: http://meanderingbanter.blogspot.com/2018/09/automatic-list-to-html-translator.html)

Button/Table Descriptions: 

Human Spacecraft Form: Roll d4, roll that many times on table and combine results.

Alien Spacecraft Form: Roll Twice and combine the results.

Spacecraft Classes: Either pick one of these classes, or roll to get a random spacecraft class. Morph the core attributes of the ship as appropriate.

Spacecraft Form Manifestation: What is weird, unusual, or unique about the spacecraft’s visual appearance.

Spacecraft Special Ability: What special powers, modifications, equipment or weapons the spacecraft has.

Spacecraft Interior Atmosphere: If boarded, what the interior of the spacecraft looks like.
