MERC: Supplement 1

Watermarked PDF

The purpose of Supplement 1 is to add Specialties and Skills, and to clearify existing material. In no way is this Supplement meant to change the present game system.

When you are both a Role Player and a Game Designer, you tend to automatically put things in your 'Test Games' that somehow never make it to paper. No matter how many times you read your proof, there are always things that get by you. For this reason, we would like to take this time to appoligize for the items that were inadvertently left out of MERC: the Twilight Soldier. The fault lies with us, the Game Designers, solely.

In Book 3 - In Country, besides new specialties & skills, there are restrictions on existing material. In Book 4 - Motor Pool, the vehicle procedure has been intensified. All and any of these changes should be applied to existing characters and campaigns. Since the basic MERC system remains the same, these changes are only to add authenticity, realism, and action to your game.

We would also like to thank all those MERC players who have written to us with questions and opinions. It was through these letters that our mistakes could be rectified.

So, here is Supplement 1. We believe that it completes the MERC system . . . but you never know. Keep the letters coming, and we'll be more than happy to answer your questions and help with your campaign. Happy Hunting!

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.
