design by Nick Bradbeer
Each tower requires a Top Section, which provides a platform and handrails. Below this may be added Tower Sections, each adding 2m of height. Each adds a horizontal triangle of tubes, a vertical 2m tube on each corner and a diagonal on each side made of two 2m tubes joined end to end. Each section includes a 2m section of lightweight aluminium ladder.
Finally, Buttresses are available for added bracing on rough ground. Two of the three tubes are joined to make a 4m bracing strut, while the third attaches close to the base of the tower and holds the buttress firmly in place. Up to two may be added at each corner.
Top Section: - 3m triangle, 1m high handrails; 6 x 3m tubes, 3 x 1m tubes, 6 x 15m guy wires. Floor meshing. Mass 30 kg
Tower Section: - 2m high. 3 x 3m tubes, 9 x 2m tubes, 2m ladder section - Mass 32 kg
Buttress for base (up to two on each corner) 3 x 2m tubes - Mass 6kg
Washstand: Cuboid block 1m wide and deep and 1.2m high, this contains a sink-shaped recess in the top surface. Bags on the base may be filled with water for stability.
Chair: Anice comfy armchair - perfect for relaxing after a long day's hunting or hiking. It does squeak a little when the sitter oves around though.
Sofa: Like the above, but allowing for the fact that sometimes two friends want to sit together.
Bed: Obvious and important item for the camper more used to home comforts. Ten centuries of development have produced an airbed that can seal small leaks by itself, and doesn't squeak when you shift in the night.
The Gravchair: A novel application of Grav Belt technology, this device is intended for safari and expeditions on scenic worlds. The chair contains a CG unit, drinks cabinet, and a small table suitable for reading or playing cards. As a safety feature, the unit is powered via a cable from the ground, which also serves as a tether cable. The Grav Sofa is similar but more expensive, and allows two friends to enjoy a drink and the scenery together. The manufacturers are researching ways of facilitiating airborne Bridge games. Mass 100kg, Cost 100,000 Cr.
