Is the section of the book these logo go to. Its still a bit rough and needs to be polished and edited but I’m sure you’ll get the gist of what I’m attempting to do.

Let me know what you think


The Great Crafting House
Below is a list of the great crafting houses of the known worlds. The list is by no means absolute as there are many smaller and less well known guilds and corporations found locally on many worlds.
The ones listed below are the most well known and ubiquitous

Ægis Industries
Alecto Arms
Argosian Engines
Diadalos Innovations
Elegance by Pistis
Euthenia
Hatari League
Hektaries Industries
Helios Stardrives
Koeus Information Technologies

Quote:
Why Crafting Guilds and Modifiers?
The reason is to give the Gm and players a variety of items that are not only the same but varied. Two heroes many have the same rifle but have different bonuses determined by the manufacturer. A small list of items can now be turned into a huge and varied list giving the GM more variety to offer in different locations of the Known Worlds.



Ægis Industries
In 2085 AE Karlos, a retired Spartan strategist who saw that the standard armors could be made as hard as the Spartan soul. Through years on experimentation and use the Spartan lost an eye, one hand, and accumulated several sprawling scars. When all was said and done Karlos formulated an alloy that was lighter and stronger than the standards being used. Hailed as a national hero Karlos founded Ægis Industries and began to produce his impenetrable armor for those who sought to protect against any assault that could be thrown against them. Each piece of armor is emblazoned with Karlos’s profile and the Spartan saying “Either with is or on this”.
Areas of Excellence & Game Bonus
Ægis Industries are considered Excellent for the sake of cost and durability

I cannot verify the "technical" details as I would need to implement them on characters and check how the modifiers affect the game balance but your fluff is to the point! Very good up to now!

Koeus Information Technologies : "Share your Dreams with us ... We know how to make them real "
or
Koeus Information Technologies : " We can turn Your Dreams into Reality "

I prefer the second.


Thalassa Slipspace Technologies : "Only for the Elite" .
or
Thalassa Slipspace Technologies : "Traveling in one of our ships is the best experience money can buy".

I like them both I have to admit :]
