Woe be the sellsword that mistake the plain dressed Dame for a lesser threat,

The plain sword may hide a vibration edge for swift evisceration,

Cloaks covering compact thermal javelins, pulsers or plasma shot.

Sleeves holding ceramic daggers, micro sluggers, venom needlers or corrosion darts.

And of course their voluminous hats that may house sonic grenades, flashers and lamprey mines.

If they can afford it, they will have it.

These are some of the offensive reasons why the Dame has the worth of ten other soldiers.

The Dame is always a lethal threat in close quarters combat.
