The 12 mm ENL Libertad Combat
The Libertad is a unique weapon. It is produced in a variety of small workshops
on Jakob for the Ladian National Army (Ejercito Nacional de Ladia or ENL)
and is the closest this organisation comes to having a standard issue weapon.
Given the circumstances of it's manufacture, most examples show a surprising
degree of craftsmanship and reliability. The weapon itself is a rather
unusual design. Instead of using a conventional magazine, it utilises the
same principle as handgun revolvers. The Libertad is a single action revolver
with a six chambered cylinder and a conventional wooden stock. The Libertad
normally uses a preloaded paper cartridge containing both the conical lead
bullet and blackpowder charge, but it can also be loaded with loose powder
if necessary. The cylinder can be removed and replaced with a preloaded
one in a matter of seconds and most users will carry several such cylinders.
If necessary, it takes a trained user about 2 to 4 seconds to

reload an individual chamber under combat conditions. Despite the circumstances
of its production, the Libertad has found a ready market with collectors
off Jakob and several companies now produce copies under licence from the
ENL (the ENL uses the licence fees to purchase more advanced weapons to
be smuggled on to Jakob).
Whilst the Libertad is theoretically a reliable weapon, the nature of
it's manufacture leads to considerable variety in quality. For each weapon
throw 1D; a 1, 2 or 3 indicates a reliable weapon, a 4 or 6 indicates an
unreliable weapon, whilst a 6 indicates a very unreliable weapon.
