Mercenary Adventure 3: Must Travel, Need Guns

Watermarked PDF

The planetary government of Kolan is one of ‘those’ clients. Prepared to pay a warfighter’s fee, they rushed mercenaries up to the front and told them to wait for authorisation to act. And wait. And wait. Meanwhile the insurgents become ever more bold. Now the government wants to terminate the contract and withhold part of the fee for failing to fulfil the mission objectives.

The mercenaries need to demonstrate they would have made a good-faith attempt at the mission objectives had they not been hamstrung, but rules of engagement preclude offensive operations. The mercenaries are allowed to support patrols that come under attack, however, so with a little creativity they may have a pretext to pick a fight… and hopefully win it.

An unexpectedly hot engagement reveals the insurgents are receiving offworld support, including advanced weapons. The mercenaries have been ordered to withdraw, but the insurgents’ base could be a threat to their retiring force. They are allowed to clear their flanks, but that would require raiding the insurgents' home base, defeating their forces and fulfilling the contract despite the client’s intentions. And if they happen to seize a shipment of powerful weapons in the process… well, that is mere coincidence.

That cover. Seriously. Mercenary clowns? Not inspiring adventure.

They do kind of look like a group of troubleshooters from the Paranoia RPG, instead of professional space mercs.

Original electronic
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.
