The Time: The late 21st Century.
The Place: Wherever the Credits are...
You´ve destroyed the base, rescued the hostages, recovered a frightening amount of
ammo and cash, and you have the laser burns to prove it. No one ever said the mercenary
business was easy. So, as the universe slams in to the 22nd century, there´s only one way to
survive, play it fast, play it hard, play for keeps.
If you think you´ve got what it takes, you too can join Tegel´s Mercenaries.
Tegel´s Mercenaries is a non-stop exercise in squad tactics taking place in the not-so-distant
future. You commend twenty mercenaries of different races and geders, all of which are here for
one thing, credits. Credit chips flow from General Tegel like water. But there´s a down side.
You can´t just go off and blow up Arcturus III for trillions of credits: General Tegel gives the
orders here, you just follow them. Your job is simple: pick the right men, women, and non-gender
specific entities to handle whatever assignment happens to come your way, serve as their B.O.S.S.
(Base Operation Squad Sergeant) throughout the misssion, and make sure they make it back in one
piece. Of course, when you´re in the drop shuttle, protected by 50 centimeters of hyperplex
shielding and surrounded by the most state of the art comm-tech in the traveled systems, its
tempting to play God. Don´t. Each of your "men" is a fully functional entity with unique abilities,
personalities, and every one of them expects to be able to spend the credits they´re racking in.
It may be too much for a washout from the Officer´s Training Academy to handle, but wouldn´t it
be nice, just to prove to yourself that you can do it, to lead a squad through the fires of hell
unscathed. And if you happen to pocket a few thousand credits on the side, consider it a bonus.
With Tegel´s Mercenaries, you will get a first hand feel for squad deployment and movement in
a futuristic setting. Each squad member will have his, her, or its, own strengths and weaknesses.
It will be up to you to select the appropriate combination of mercenaries to optimize your
