Homebrew Reference Book: New Jedi Order Campaign Guide
Constructed like enormous gemstones, with "Facets" a dozen meters across, Sh'rip Sh'pa Spawn Ships are effectively war freighters. They carry the supplies that The Yuuzhan Vong Empire need to terraform worlds to suit their own purposes, and sufficient armament to protect their cargoes.
The faceted hull of a Spawn Ship enables it to reconfigure its weaponry as needed, moving its Plasma Projectors from one arc to another.

Fluidic Hull[edit | edit source]
The Yaret-kor and Dovin Basal emplacements of a Sh'rip Sh'pa Spawn Ship are capable of moving around the hull and are not fixed in any particular configuration. This has two mechanical effects:T
- The System Operator may make a DC 15 Treat Injury check to use the Angle Deflector Shields Starship Manoeuver. This can be performed as often as the System Operator desires, as it is a capability inherent to the vessel.
- The Yaret-kors automatically gain the benefit of the Combined Fire Talent, without requiring a shipmaster who possesses the Talent. The vessel gains no further benefit from Combined Fire- even if it does have a shipmaster with the Talent.
Tactical Fire[edit | edit source]
Spawn Ships are a marvel of Yuuzhan Vong engineering, and its advanced intelligence is an invaluable asset on the battlefield. As a Standard Action, a Sh'rip Sh'pa Spawn Ship can forgo all attacks to provide Tactical Fire to all squares within a 2-square radius. All Engineers aboard allied ships within this radius may use the Reroute Power Action with only a single Swift Action (Instead of the usual 3 Swift Actions). Any effects that also reduce the number of Actions required to Reroute Power do not stack with this effect.
