What is Mercenaries?

 

Mercenaries is at once a game of resource management, creativity, and charisma. You, the player, will use your funds to hire a team of video game characters. Those characters will then fight the teams of your competitors, and the victor is decided by those reading along and voting. It's up to you to craft an argument as to why your team would come out on top, and win the hearts and minds of the voters.

 

This isn't to say the game is simple -- there are plenty of other factors that influence your fight; this goes for veterans of Mercenaries, too. This isn't exactly the same game you're used to. The game has had some significant changes, in administration, pacing, and mechanics.

 

One thing to never forget is that, in Mercenaries, <b>bold</b> is law. Whether bidding on a mercenary, deferring your ability phase, or voting, all must be done in bold or it does not count.

 

The game is played over 45 "weeks" -- these may not necessarily be a week on the dot, but that's the rough amount of time one cycle of purchases and fights will take -- followed by playoffs among the top teams to determine the ultimate winner. These weeks are comprised of three phases:

 

Peacetime, in which you make purchases and use certain abilities.

Wartime, in which your opponent for the week is decided, and you fight, and

Results, in which you assign experience points to your crew and get your daily influx of cash.

 

Each of these topics, and more, will be explained more in-depth on the wiki: http://mercs2015.pbworks.com/w/page/90630314/Rules

 

So please, sign up here in this topic: keep in mind we're looking for a solid mixture of 24 old and new players, so please don't be afraid to sign up just because you've missed out on previous iterations of the game, or think you wouldn't do well, or think it's too complex. There's a wiki full of information at your disposal and I, the other administrators, or some other veterans of the game would be happy to assist you. I can be contacted on AIM, or in the irc channel. I have it on good authority that it's a pretty "great chat."
