Long-haul truckers running the Wayhall lines
Me an' Shathru-Nis ran a few lines back in the day. Wasn't fun, but we did good work.
A good line runner needs guts. Those, determination, a quick ship with a good cargo hold and a devil-may-care attitude are required for a great runner. The best runners? Eh, ain't seen one of those in a long time now. Forgot what they looked like.Line Running isn't a job you'll find listings for. They rise from the ranks of pilots, soldiers, con artists, and a dozen other fields. They don't just find niches, they make them. They call these niche's lines.
A runner's skill and reputation determine the scale and caliber of jobs they receive, often through being contacted by the client, or through an agency. Agency runners also achieve a sort of seniority not seen with freelance runners.
Payment & Reimbursement
Based on the danger, duration and amount of cargo hauled, line runners are well compensated for their time.
A great or high profile line runner never need pay for their own drinks at a bar, other than that, the pay's not bad.
A good ship is all that's required. Everything else is the Line Runner them-self
Dangers & Hazards
Warzones, Interplanetary conflicts, asteroids, and pirates all threaten the runner's existence.
