Ships Steward

The vast stocks of food, water, and air upon which a crew depends must be carefully monitored and rationed, lest wanton consumption and theft lead to a crippling shortage. Someone must take charge of these resources, to see that they are used properly. To do less invites starvation, dehydration, and suffocation on a catastrophic scale.

Career Preferences
This Role is open to all Seneschals and Void-masters, as well as all characters with the Void Born Home World option.

Examples of Immediate Subordinates
Master of Stores, senior hydrologists, guildmaster of Atmospheric Reclamators.

Important Skills
Blather: Often the ship’s steward must stall for time, distracting the crew from a shortage just long enough to acquire new provisions.
Survival: In the darkest of times, people must be fed from scavenged food, captured vermin, and less savoury victuals.

Benefits
The careful rationing imposed by the ship’s steward doubles the effective provisions of a craft, allowing it to function for up to a year before the crew suffers the consequences of long voyages (see Rogue Trader page 227).
