"Double the hands, double the eyes, half the everything else."

A drone controlled remotely via a module attached to a richife's core implant, pawn-class models specialize in being easy and simple to control, to the point that one richife can control two of them with as much effort as most other classes of drone. However, the simpler mechanisms result in smaller units, with less performance all around, and less still as most pawn-class remote servants are sold in two packs at the same price as most other classes of drone, making them cheaper still. More so than other remote servants, these models are usually rather flimsy, most of the durability going towards two cores. Repairs are easier though, only needing one unit of scrap metal, one unit of wiring, and a connection to the core for repair assistance.

Repairs are easier though, only needing two units of scrap metal, three units of wiring, a unit of plastic, and a connection to the core for repair assistance.

Uncommon | Robot | 6 | 38,000p
"A walking wall to put between you and them."

A drone controlled remotely via a module attached to a richife's core implant, rook-class models specialize in durability, withstanding attacks that would take down most other classes of drone. Heaver armor means less mobility, as parts are geared towards heavy lifting, and away from quick moving. Unlike other remote servants, these models have more vulnerable cores, which could easily get destroyed with the chassis. Repairs are also costly, needing five units of scrap metal, two units of wiring, and a connection to the core for repair assistance.

"For that special occasion you really need to beat a bunch people to death."

Insta-rage was originally developed as a means to give disposable troops a large boost in physical strength and endurance before they perished, and as such, has highly used by morally dubious commanders in battle efforts. The main downsides, however, was that the beverage drove the consumers mind to a near uncontrollable rage, causing them to attack anything and anyone within range, often resulting in the user bashing enemy corpses to a pulp, or even causing them to attack their own allies.

Due to this drawback and several police raids on the factories that produced the substance that many deemed illegal, the company producing Insta-rage was disbanded, and the product forever halted from being produced again. While Insta-Rage may no longer be produced, occasionally cans of the beverage are found hidden in long-forgotten stashes, or sold by shifty individuals looking to make a quick point.

Rare | Consumable | 1 | 5000p

This season revolved around Xerxes finding the most notorious X-class members across the stars, and his many failed attempts at charming them. What makes the discs special are the inclusion of several episodes that were canned due to Xerxes usual death being unusually grotesque and/or exceedingly humiliating. Although these episodes were cut from the disks public release, several "director's cut" editions were mislabeled and accidentally sold as the regular edition, leaking the existence of these episodes to the public.

"The single most useful thing in the whole Universe"

A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth; you can lie on it on sanded beaches, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on many planets; use it to sail a miniraft down rivers or sea currents; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes ; you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.
