Layeaukel Rift Frigate

design by

Name means "Valley Leaper." Small frigate designed for Great Rift Patrols. Antebellum design common in the Riftspan Reaches and along the borders of the Aslan Colonies. Hampered by a lack of small craft facilities. Indicative of the limits of TL-14 ship design, space is at a premium aboard the vessel. Most of the class was safely evacuated to the Colonies during the Collapse, and continue to serve in Quarantine duties around the Aslan frontier. In the Riftspan Reaches, it is the most commonly encountered small warship, and its crews are required to be the best skilled and most loyal that the Hierate can provide.

(This ship is based upon a craft mentioned in CT AM1's companion adventure, a J-5 and 5G craft. Alas TL-14 will not permit a workable design of such performance, and thus the design listing of 4G.)
