The Argos: A Guide to Existing Ship Resources

As a member of a Rogue Trader dynasty, you have access to a variety of resources present on your vessel. Follows are weapons, items, and retainers that you have access to while aboard your void-ship to use as you see fit.


Although not extensive, every void-ship maintains numerous weapons lockers and armories for use in riot suppression, security, and repelling enemy boarders. The following weapons are present in quantity at all times:

Shotgun: Basic, 30m, S/-/-,1d10+4 I Pen 0,Clip 2, Rld 2 full, Scatter, 5kg

Notes: The combat shotgun is commonly used weapon by naval armsmen all duties such as repelling boarders, and is the most plentiful weapon on board.

Autogun: Basic,90m,S/3/10,1d10+3 I, Pen 0, Clip 30, Rld 2 Full, 3.5kg

Notes: Though less commonly used, the autogun is sometimes employed in boarding actions conducted on enemy ships, or on security detail off-ship.

Lasgun: Basic,100m, S/3/-,1d10+3E, Pen 0, Clip 60, Rld Full, Reliable

Notes: The trusty lasgun is maintained in (relatively) small amounts for use in specialized bodyguard or troop squads.

Shock-staff: Melee, 1d5+3 I, Pen 0, Shocking

Notes: These electrified staffs are used primarily to keep the peace, and prod press-ganged crew to stick to their assigned tasks.

Mono-weapons: In addition to the above weapons, the armories also contain numerous mono-edged blade weapons, such as mono-knives, swords, cutlasses, mauls, and other melee weapons.


In addition to stocks of weapons, any void-ship will also contain the following supplies at all times as standard equipment.

-Ration packs
-Glow-globe/Lamp pack
-Data slate (poor and common quality)
-Void suits
-Ship-board emergency kits (all decks)
-Vox and pict-casters
-Flak weave security uniform (AP 2 legs/body/arms)
-Naval flak armor ( AP 3 arms/legs/head, AP 4 body)

Notes: These items represent only a few of the common items to be found onboard. If you think of an item that would be logical to have on board already, then it most likely is!
