Nautiloid Alien Ship [42x59]

May 17, 2021

In space, no one can hear you scream... especially when aliens eat your brains!

I proudly present the NAUTILOID, an aquatic sea monster flying spaceship. I have received many requests for this ship of the past few months, but I didn't want to rush the project, so I took my time and I am very proud of the results. Also, due to the poll results, the next release will be a crashed version of this ship!

Thiship can be used as a spaceship for Illithid Mind Flayers or as a seafaring vessel for merfolk, sahuagin, or a group of aquatic gnomes that have built a magic vessel in the shell of a dead sea creature.

Each of the 4 exterior decks of the ship lead to different rooms inside the vessel:

  • A Deck. The helm, leader's stasis pod
  • B Deck. The ship's engine/warp drive, maintenance, storage.
  • C Deck. Crew stasis pods, storage, main door to exterior decks
  • D Deck. Controls, tadpole tanks, elder brain tank

The original version is a nod to the expected purple color scheme and to this incredible Baldur's Gate 3 Cinematic. Spelljammer lovers will enjoy the Classic version and OSR fans might employ the old school blue version, but my personal favorites are the Silver Surfer-esque Chrome Lightspeed, the Jellyfish Sails Sea Vessel at Night, and the erie H. R. Giger-inspired Deep Space versions.

DMs running Call from the Deep or Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden will find parts of this ship suitable for the Nautiloids in those campaigns, thought I have adapted and redesigned the floor plans to make them my own, and to make them more interesting.

Foundry VTT

I'm especially excited to share the Foundry module with you all, as it employs animated scrolling backgrounds (space,ocean, sky over a village), Multilevel Token so players can move around the ship, and a variety of lighting and sound effects to immerse your players in the setting. The module is available to my $10+ Admiral patrons, or can be purchased on Gumroad or the Forge (coming soon).
