I was looking through the Dark matter supplement for the 5th D & D Edition by Mage Hand Press (Kickstarter with PDF sample, store page) to find out what were the less common boat systems when I noticed that all the class ships hunting (except the Marco Lakshayan Ashigaru) lacked Communications System
As indicated in "Communications" in the "Systems" section, "for two ships to communicate, both must have a communications system in place and be 1,000 miles away from each other." No matter how hard I try, I can not find any mention of how ships without such systems could communicate.
Does this mean that combat ships can not communicate with their allies, even with other combat ships? I've been looking at the book and, as far as I know, it does not look like combat ships can. There are elements in the supplement that can be used, such as communications sets and relay stations, but even so, communications sets are set to only reach 1 mile, and are blocked by "1 foot of stone, 1 inch of metal common". , a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt. "
How do the combat ships in the Dark matter Do the supplements communicate with each other and with their other allies? Can not communicate with other ships, as it seems?
PS I realize that posting this question here is an opportunity in the dark, considering that I could not even label it correctly, but I could not find any discussion of the supplement anywhere else. Please comment if you know of a dedicated forum!
