It's time to ditch this dingy cantina because you're ready to make it big. Welcome to the Star Cartel.
The black market's a tricky business, and now that you've joined the Star Cartel, you'll need to play it smart. Every shipment you make will let you stash some contraband for yourself and will earn you a new ship, but with every fresh delivery the Cartel's prices change. Will you risk it all on illicit plants, plan to convey a careful mix of med-kits and energy crystals, or rush to deliver as quickly as possible to get that special ship? Don't push too hard or the price will fall faster than re-entry to atmosphere, and your hopes will fall with it.
Load your ship with available goods and once your ship is full, the goods shipped will modify their own value. Each time you deliver goods, your ship upgrades to the next highest capacity ship. In the end, the player who stashed the most luxurious goods wins.

Time is running out for Yelen and Mirika Semova. Though the sisters have earned an enviable reputation amongst their fellow explorers of the Frozen City, their lives are haunted by a curse - the more Yelen uses her magic, the closer the demon Azzanar comes to claiming her, body and soul.

For beauty, precision and strength, nothing has ever matched the combination of form and function found in the armour of the samurai. For a samurai, the consummate warrior, his suit of armour was so much more than 'just' protective equipment that could save his life in the heat of battle - it was the embodiment of his personality, social status and very soul.
This volume, the first in a two-part series on the armour of the samurai, traces first the history of the samurai themselves and then examines the history and evolution of the cuirass or dou, the armour protecting the samurai's chest. Drawing on over 20 years of research and technical work by Trevor Absolon, a leading expert, this is a complete study of this fundamental aspect of samurai armour construction. Stunningly illustrated throughout, this is more than just a detailed technical exploration, it is a meditation on a process that was, and still is, nothing short of an art form.
