Broadsword - the first in a class of 800-ton mercenary cruisers devoted to keeping the peace and restoring order, for a price.

Included are detailed deck plans, tables of organization and equipment for the strike team aboard, and four exciting scenarios (one for use with High Guard and three for use with Mercenary and Striker!), all set in the Vilis Subsector, against the backdrop of the Fifth Frontier War.
