The Swordmongers are an interstellar “trading company” that specializes in providing arms and mercenary soldiers to those who need them. They are also known as the Smiths' Coster as well as simply the Trading Company.
The Swordmongers are staunchly neutral, caring not at all to get involved in politics or to question ethics. They have been known to provide support to both sides of a given war. They specifically send expeditions out to war zones and hot spots, where they know demand for their services will be high.
Swordmonger weapons are of exceptional power and quality, and their soldiers tend to be as well (although the latter is more because the weak are quickly killed off).
In terms of appearance and behavior, the Swordmongers are an interesting and somewhat confusing mix of a paramilitary organization and overly enthusiastic and ingratiating salesmen. They are comprised of mainly humans, but their numbers include members of other races as well.
Their symbol is an infinity sign within a crystal sphere.
