...Is there a map anywhere of a Titan's Innards?


I'm running an RPG where the characters are WH40k Marines (the Techmarine's a wizard-type, the brick-type is a terminator, the sneaker-type is a scout, healer-type is an Apothecary, etc)

I thought that once we have the traditional 'dungeon crawl,' I'd have it inside the long-buried body of a Titan.

A map of the interior of the machine would be great & save me a bundle of time. Failing that, any ideas of what the SM's might find? I was thinking of alien monster-types in the first levels, automated defenses, ammo found on dead bodies of IGs, etc, but other ideas are always welcome!

I've not actually seen the schematics of one. There are ones in the books for apoc games from what I've heard.

In Helsreach, a priest decides to leave the titan he is on and his journey offers a general top-to-bottom outline of the titan's structure. I've provide more but I gave the book back to my friend. I can give you what I remember from that book and others (Titanicus is another good one).

You are not going to find IG. They really wouldn't be allowed in there (unless they're renegade or something). You'd most likely find skitarii and servitors, techpriests in most of the control stations, and in the command center would be the more techpriests, the moderati, and the princeps.

There would be automated defenses, bulkheads, and a lot of winding stairs (especially in the legs, with access at the feet).

At various points throughout the structure will be chapels to the Omnissiah filled with Mechanicus relics and such. On the larger titans will be a cathedral (or several in the much larger ones) on the shoulders or upper half.
