It's a fact of life; life sucks, it isn't fair and you could die at any moment. Sure, many live it easy, working in offices and factories of the worlds, enjoying the occasional day off and living decently but steadily.
Then there's those who want to hit big, work outside the systems, all of them; government, corporation, crime gangs. Those who make their own life even in the coldness of space. Those are Freelancers.
The life isn't easy and they'll need all the advantage they can to survive; info, skills, gear and a lot of luck.
This guide is meant as a complement to my upcoming episodic story; All will in time be explored and explained. Some of this is common knowledge, other much more secret.
