Foreword: Mercenaries is a system-agnostic guide to a fantasy TTRPG group with a head start on creating a full game campaign based around the service of the player’s characters in a mercenary troop, as part of a Guild of mercenaries. The book contains a wealth of story ideas and character development concepts toward this goal. GMs may use the book to give a detailed background about the establishment, administration, and running of the Merc Guild, and use that as an engine to provide story for their PCs.
The book is 31 pages with a full-color cover by Sheryl Westleigh
