Bandits calling themselves freedom fighters have kidnapped an oil company engineer. They want four million in ransom, and the guy's relatives are poor as churchmice. The goons figure the engineer is so valuable the oil company will pay to get him back, but they're wrong on two counts.

The company is only paying one million.

And they're paying it to us.

Merc: 2000 is a game of daring night raids on enemy camps. Audacious hostage rescues, and tense industrial sabotage missions in exotic foreign locales. It is an alternate world situation for use with Twilight: 2000, GDW's roleplaying game of survival in a devastated world. In Merc: 2000, the world did not blow itself up. The old bi-polar superpower conflict is gone, replaced by a mulitpower competition. What armies remain are kept purely for internal security at reduced levels. When a war becomes necessary, a country (or company) will hire independent contractors – mercenaries – to conduct it.

Using Twilight: 2000 rules as a base, Merc: 2000 enables players and referees to recreate modern close combat in a number of environments. Merc: 2000 includes a new chronology of the events of the decade between 1990 and 2000, plus new rules, equipment, vehicles, weapons, and career path (counterterrorist). It also contains five ready-to-play scenarios and suggestions for scenario creation and campaign organization. Everything is fully compatible with the Twilight: 2000 rules system, and characters can be used interchangeably.

Scanned image
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
