In Planet Mercenary, the new RPG based on the Schlock Mercenary comic, a down-on-their-luck team of mercenaries are desperate for some coin after some unexpected downsizing. A slowly building civil war may be just the break they need. Thank you to Alan Bahr and Howard Tayler for allowing us to playtest Planet Mercenary – check out their Kickstarter, and check back soon for a special guest post from Alan reacting to our playtest experience.

There’s derailment, and then there’s Fandible derailment.
Loved the game btw.
When I heard that Uplifted Animals where a thing in this game, I kept expecting an appearance from Doctor DuhNuh; Shark MD!
Ok that sounds awesome 🙂
Now I need to scrape up money to back the kickstarter!
Anyone need any kidneys?
Well, you’ve sold me on this! Listened to this a few days ago and have been reading the web comic since. Thank you for introducing to this wonderful story!
P.S. – I believe I speak for most when I say “Please continue this game as a series! If not during the testing period’s many revisions (which I myself would not mind; being able to hear what another group thinks of changes, add-ins or remove material would be helpful), then certainly once the final product is released!â€
This has the potential to be Rogue Trader epic and I do not use that word lightly!
I have reached payday! I can now back this and try and get the cult to play a play test game! Yaaaay!
@Callmeishma3l there are plans….
@7explorer I have been looking for another space campaign. Honestly, it looks like it might be this or it could be Fragged Empire (http://www.fraggedempire.com/). Once I get the Fragged Empire book from the kickstarter, we will see how it goes.
@Mawdrigen WOOT! Payday!
This was hilarious. I will be listening to more from this group, indeed!
As soon as I heard the obvious Obenn (spelling? It’s been a long time since I read the comic) names in the PC list I knew it was going to be a good game.
The system sounds really interesting, too!
