Baron

The Baron is an entry level ship for the trading line of vessels. It features minimal defences and firepower but a capable set of engines and light drive. The Baron, being classed as a trading vessel, allows it purchase ports for other captains to buy directly as well as offering any blueprints and books the captain as acquired for sale automatically. This enables the captain to effectively be a travelling merchant with other ships docking to browse the stock. But this also makes an easy target for pirates, who are able to recover ports in stock for their own faction armouries. Items can be purchased from merchants using a special option while captaining the vessel and all ports will be sold at RRP to docking vessels, with blueprints and books being sold at +50% RRP.
