History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Established 984 by Samuel, later Sir Samuel Beaufort of Guildheim/Liberty Hall (The Beyond 1604). Sir Samuel's policies of subtle Imperial influence and paternal advice resulted in Beaufort being the sole line granted entrance into the Mal'Gnar Radiant, which fact probably influenced Emperor Gavin in his decision to bestow the title of Knight of the Order of the Knights Imperial in 1000 upon Beaufort. To celebrate this event Zirunkariish provided a superior valuation as well as three superior investors for that valuation (Zirunkariish itself, the Sharurshid Trust, and the Imperial family). This allowed the company to expand significantly. To this date, Sir Samuel's policies remain in effect and no commercial line has succeeded in entering the Radiant.

Worlds & Sectors (Astrography)[edit]

This business is primarily known to operate out of the following locations:

Beaufort is one of the major shipping lines operating in Beyond with established routes from the Mal'Gnar Radiant through die Weltbund and Liberty Hall and rimward into Metchi'Alagwa and the Northeast Middle Beyond. It connects with Parallel Lines, Unlimited, at Xeres/Zydar (The Beyond 0830), at the extreme coreward edge of Zydar Subsector.

Most of Beaufort Lines is composed of ex-Imperial navy vessels, especially those of larger tonnages. But there is a new tendency towards the utilization of the Delta Research Type SX Wind class Scout/Couriers, no doubt a continuance of Sir Samuel's unique sense of humor. To date, some twelve Type SX's have been delivered and have been christened, rather whimsically: Calm; Light Air; Light Breeze; Gentle Breeze; Moderate Breeze; Fresh Breeze; Strong Breeze; Moderate Gale; Fresh Gale; Whole Gale; Storm; and Hurricane.
