We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: a fruitful life is a long life, and in Tau Station, a long life is an armed life. Survivors of the Catastrophe are naturally resourceful thinkers, and anything, from a busted pipe to an energy-blast hand-cannon, can and will be used for both defense and offence. Previously, with The Art of the Guns we offered a glimpse into specific gun types found in Tau Station. Today, we present you with other various tools of survival; all able to be used when conflicts come into play.

Where’er his stages may have been,

The primary driving force in the successful tenure of the space traveler is simple: survival. Whether entering a strange new station, scavenging for goods, or trying to level the playing field with an obstinate negotiation gone awry, sometimes a well-armed response might be your best hope for a tidy outcome in the Tau Station universe. A post-scarcity life can get rough from time to time. It’s best to be prepared with the proper tools to smooth it all out. Sometimes, the best tool is one of our various styles of guns.
Previously, we offered a glimpse into The Art of the Market and The Art of Space Travel. This week we’d like to present you with a sample of weapons devised by the Tau Station art team.

Peace is a natural effect of trade.
Charles de Montesquieu
Peace may not be the first word that comes to mind when walking through a market in the Tau Station universe. From the raucous harmony of a vendor hawking his wares, to the acrid, metallic taste lingering in the air after a potential customer tests out a gun at the Hephaestus Weapon Tech booth, the Market place is always one of the most chaotic and vibrant areas on a station.
Recently we showed you a glimpse of what our very talented artists were creating in as far as space travel. This week, we invite you to enjoy a small tour of some of the many interesting aspects of our market places.
