Blades for hire!
When the best-laid plans of kings and conquerors get bogged down in the dirty details, Elspeth Black offers heavy-handed solutions to hard-to-solve problems. Need a private militia? An assassination or two? Security for a brand new fortress of doom? The elite and morally flexible mercenaries of Blackblade are available for hire, and Elspeth Black is the connection that can make that happen. Elspeth is an experienced tactician and powerful psychic warrior with secrets of her own, commanding of a private army that can deploy to anywhere in the cosmos. Deadly, dangerous services like these are available in the Tarnished Souk for those who have a lot of coin—and not a lot of conscience.
