Background – Founded in the wake of the Sundering War, Black Diamond is the largest, most sophisticated, and best equipped mercenary organization in the galaxy. They’re not simply that, no, they’re much more than that. After the Guild’s security forces (Gama) were disbanded following the Guild’s defeat in the War. The end of the War didn’t mean an end to the need for security details and thousands of small security companies popped up. A mere four cycles ago, Gaius Senzen proposed the formation of an organization to organize and manage these mercenaries. Thus Black Diamond was born.
Gameplay – Open fire! The Black Diamond forces have lots of guns and know how to use them well. Combined with their armor, this firepower will encourage a more defensive posture. Units like the Black Dragons, are definitely better used for defense than offense, holding the line while other units go in for the kill.
Appearance – Black Diamond is first and foremost a military operation and their look reflects it. Their background allows them to be painted in multiple styles depending on which security charter your cadre is a member of and where they are deployed. Tactical blacks and greys accented by glowing blues and purples provide a cutting-edge “future” soldier look. While exploring environment specific colors and camouflage patterns can enhance their more pragmatic military outlook.
