Subject:  Re: Mech: The Thruster Helm
	Hi fellas!

	Disclaimer:  This is my first mech posting.  Please be easy on the
	flames.  Thanks.

	Now,  this is a new helm I have created called the Thruster Helm.
	The helm operates similar to that of a major helm, but has
	an added advantage and disadvantage.

	Here's how it works:

	The mage or priest memorizes (or prays for) a spell dealing with
	fire.  He then sits in the helm.  He then casts the spell into a
	special recepticle next to the helm. The power of them helm then
	draws his magical energy and feeds it into the recepticle.  The
	resulting fire is expelled out the rear of the ship via the helm.
	This gives the ship and added push, due to the matter being
	thrown out the back.


	Here's the benefit:

	The ship receives a +1 to its SR due to the extra push.

	Here's the hindrance:

	The helm cannot be used in the phlogiston, or disastrous consequences
	could result.  (It's so disastrous, I can't even imagine it! :-) ).
	However, the helm does act as a normal Major Helm, so the ship
	is not powerless in the Flow.

	I estimated the price for this helm at about 3 times that of a Major
	I estimated the price for this helm at about 3 times that of a Major
	Helm, or at about 750,000 gp.

	Any helpful criticism or comments would be appreciated.

	Enjoy!
