Secrets in Sulphur - Design Notes

The Akhska is of a type of Far Trader known as a "Rim Runner". Favoured by Vargr Special Forces and raiders for its J-3 range, the Gaeouz Class' reduced cargo hold makes it barely economical as a trading vessel.

In the Outrim, Gaeouz Class Rim Runners are often found serving as couriers or packet ships, moving important personal between far flung systems.
