Rogue Trader: The Dark of Khalason
The Distant Emissary
The Distant Emissary is a Sword-Class Frigate that once served in the Imperial Navy generations and centuries ago as the Ironguard, before the Colaris Dynasty was able to acquire the rights to the vessel in exchange for favors long-forgotten. Since then, the frigate has served the Dynasty well, through times of plenty and scarcity, through good fortune and bad alike. And now command of the vessel falls to Eremiel Colaris, a young and ambitious Lord-Captain hoping to reverse the decline of his bloodline through his own deeds.
The Emissary proudly displays its naval history, with its bridge being specially outfitted for battle, and its combat scanners calibrated specifically for ground bombardment and planetary invasion coordination. It bears the teeth of its Ryza-pattern plasma batteries and its Stygies-pattern macrocannons toward the threats of the empty beyond, and it is well-equipped for long deep-space undertakings, with a state-of-the-art Medicae Deck, Extended Supply Vaults, and Arboretum as an alternate food supply.
