In subsidised commerce, a local government (or a group of several worlds) will agree to subsidise the construction of a commercial starship in return for its servicing an established route. Ideally, the route will be a profitable one, and the subsidy can soon be ended. But, even without profits, the route provides a channel for interstellar trade, producing markets for resources and finished goods alike, and acquainting the peoples of all the worlds with the higher technology or better quality that is possible.

Typically, a subsidised merchant will establish a route which will attempt to guarantee profits. Individual ports of call may not always provide sales at high margins, but overall on the route, sales can be expected to produce reasonable income.

The Subsidized Merchant Ship Deck includes a rules insert and 81 cards:

1 Subsidized Merchant Ship Card
20 Adventure Cards
60 Captain’s Cards

Each deck is distinct, containing its own list of cards, though some may be common to multiple decks.
