76 Patrons - Custom Build

My second entry in the 76 Patrons contest at the Zhodani Base has been posted here.

The player's & referee's information is here:

Custom Build
for 4+ characters


Patron: Scout Pilot
Skills Required: Technical skills, Administration
Equipment Required: tools

Player's Information:
The PC's are contacted by a detached duty Scout, who is looking 
for help on a building project. He has acquired a starship hull, 
which is sound but lacking some key components. The Scout has 
borrowed against the selling price of the ship to purchase or 
build the required parts. He offers the party a share of the 
selling price, initially 30% to him and 70% split amongst the 
group. The Scout claims to have a buyer already lined up.

Referee's Information:
The situation is as the Scout has explained it, the hull is legally
his, and he has secured funding. Referee can choose the size of 
the ship based upon the size of the PC group and their skills. 
Any starship, even a rebuild should be worth several MCr. The ship
sits on a paved area that used to be a warehouse floor, outside of
the local metropolis, and he has rented some heavy equipment 
necessary to lift large components. The referee must determine the
number of parts still needed and their cost. It is suggested that 
the referee consult the Traveller Book,p. 78 'Repair parts', the 
Starship Operator's Manual page on Maintenance, under Other Tasks,
the JTAS article Starship Malfunctions, (JTAS 15 p.16), and 
'Refitting Ships' and 'Repairs' in Adventure 5: Trillion Credit 
Squadron.
 
Of course there will be complications.
