No Dachi is infamous around these parts
Re: Mercenaries: Dark Void

I haven't added any yet as you wouldn't be able to afford them anyway. You could theoretically produce a starship-dedicated force that fights in space only, but this is unadvised. Space combat in M: DV is a dirty and highly dangerous business that is far from perfected. Most space battles take place between small groups of two to four ships on each side, often from different sides of a system with the ships in question unloading long-range missiles off at eachother. The main advantage of having a starship, when you can afford one, is that you can transport your own forces from planet to planet, saving money on transport fees.
`The Root of evil Avarice,
That damn'd ill-natur'd baneful Vice,
Was Slave to Prodigality,
That Noble Sin; whilst Luxury
Emply'd a Million of the Poor,
And odious Pride a Million more.'
