Mercenary Scum



Mercenary Scum is a wargame supplement designed to be used with Escalade, the skirmish rules for the seventeenth century. Six scenarios are included in this supplement - with a brief summary below:



Scenario One:

 Contributions, a scenario of slash and burn tactics involving a collection of devious and untrustworthy characters - and the enemy aren't too nice either!

Scenario Two:

 The Peasants are Revolting, a desperate battle to survive between fleeing soldiers and murderous bands of peasants. Can heroics save the day or will it be better to run, run, RUN!

Scenario Three:

 Rescue Rupert, a game of suspicious guards, tough mercenaries and rebel fanatics and a daring attempt to free Prince Rupert from the dastardly clutches of the Emperor.

Scenario Four:

 Assault on Bastion 13, an intense and bloody assault on a well-entrenched enemy. Choose your weapons: mortars, grenades, snipers? Can you be the first hero to breach the enemies defences?



Scenario Five:

  Escalade, a frantic attempt to break out from the stranglehold of the enemies siege-lines. Will our heroes manage to escape before the enemy (industriously slaughtering civilians) can assemble to foil their escape?

Scenario Six:

Bandit Country, valuable supplies must get through to beleaguered troops, even if this means moving the wagons through this dark and ominously silent wood. But wait a moment, what's that blocking the path up ahead, a fallen tree? Did that tree just fall down, is that the glint of a gun-barrel pocking through the trees? The horses are getting nervous! Are the enemy about to attack...

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.
