Izzy's Airships a la Carte: Build your own Airship!



If you like airships, why not check out Izzy's entire collection! Available now!

That's right folks! Izzy’s Airships À la Carte is finally here! This standalone, fully illustrated airship guide can at long last be yours!

Custom Airships, Built to Order

Are you tired of gazing longingly at the airship entry at the DMG, while wishing for something with a more personal touch? Do you want a hands on guide to make your own airship from scratch? Then this is the book for you! Not only is this 24 page guide fully illustrated, but it comes with the know-how to build one of 5 different airship types.

The Kestrel Class Sloop
Short, sleek, and to the point, the Kestrel is a small service ship. Its minimal armament and passenger capacity is more than made up for with its versatility. Perfect for small groups.

The Auroch Class Light Freighter
If you're looking for a commercial ship, then look no further. Suitable for those with an entrepreneurial spirit, the Auroch has a cargo capacity that would make sea fairing vessels blush, and the armament to keep it safe.

The Oroboros Class Caravel
Built with safety in mind, the Oroboros embodies the notion that slow and steady wins the race. While it may not have the cargo or weapon capacity of other ships, it is by far the sturdiest.

The Vulpes Class Elemental Yacht
With an elemental drive core standard on all models, the Vulpes is built for speed. Perfect for both an emergency response, or a pleasure cruise.

The Manticore Class Frigate
The only capital ship available for purchase at Izzy's, the Mantacore, is a versatile model which can be built to suit any purchaser's specifications.

98.1% In Game!

This supplement is entirely "in game":All references to rules of play are described from the point of view of someone who is witnessing these rules from within the game. Tired of rule-books which constrain and stifle players and DMs, leading to hours of bickering? Well guess what!? Because this book represents an in game pamphlet, it's fallible, malleable, and delivered by the single most unreliable narrator: Izzy herself.

DMs and players have a lot more wiggle room, (and a lot more fun!) discussing the rules and seeing how well they play out.


This guide comes with over 200 map assets, in both full color and printer friendly versions. You can actually make your airship. I give you the tools to make your imagination come to life! 

Just like this Rainbow-Winged Library ship!

One last thing!

If you buy this book, you get commercial-use rights for the airship assets.
Yeah. You read that right. So long as I'm credited in the work, and a link is provided to the DM store page, you can use this artwork in your own maps, adventures, podcasts, you name it. Go out there and make cool stuff.

Ummm...I paid for this title, but inside there are at least three real advertisements mixed in with the made up ones. One is a full page, for a KS campaign that has ended. The made up ones are fine, although I don't see them adding anything to the publication. Especially page 20, which is a full page of ads (2 for real products or podcasts). Content and artwork are great, but the ads are, frankly, off putting to me.

My party is going with the Manticore, but I think there's an issue with the AC: base AC is 13 but the stock hull provides 15 AC.

Just a question. It looks like you have designed a clever and intuitive system for building air vehicles. I was wondering if you had ever thought about designing multi-terrain vehicles, or potentially space vehicles? And if not, would the same/a similar system work in that case?

This is categorized as VTT, is there a Fantasy Grounds module?

Hey! I like some of these assets, although a couple of them seem to be a bit...awkward to align the grids with in my VTT of choice (roll20).
In particular I appear to be having issues getting the components of the Auroch class (which is the one I'm currently using) to align to the standard roll20 grid. I noticed that the main deck file is actually bigger than it looks with a strange shadow or smudge on the right side, like it cropped out something left ot it which was accidentally left in.

Other than that, enjoying the supplement.

IZZY, As a fan of airships I couldn't help but notice there us no medical facilities. Why is this?

This is an obvious oversight!

Next time!

Are you still planning on adding an FG component? If yes, will previous purchasers get that with their purchase or will it be separate?

Absolutely loving this book, as well as the fact that it's a fully in-character pamphlet as well, but I do have a minor complaint about only one thing. The little title text, such as the "A New Approach" on the first page proper, seems to lack outlining and it makes it rather difficult to read at first glance, though it's perfectly legible after that point. Beyond that, absolutely loving this book. Is it alright if I print it out as a prop for my in-person games?

Absolutely! And as for the text, I'll see what I can fix on my next pass.

This is in the VTT category. Is there a Fantasy Grounds component?
Customer avatar
Christopher R November 25, 2018 8:40 pm UTC
No there isn't. I plan on adding one to it in the new year. In this case the VTT refers to the digital map assets. I'm sorry for any confusion!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
