Mercenary Lord

“A long road I must still travel. This is but the beginning.”
-A tired voice behind a silver mask



Maximilian Muller was a veteran of many battles before this war broke out.

An honest man and a seasoned soldier in his early forties, the cultist spies knew it would be difficult to sway Maximilian to their cause and so he was marked for termination, along with thousands others.

By 1916, all military personnel marked by the cults, were pushed to the front lines with little to no support with the intent of culling their numbers.

It was later that year General Kruger ordered the immediate extermination of all such elements, an atrocity known as Kruger’s betrayal. Entire waves of soldiers were shot in the back by their comrades as they were going over the top, now trapped between the enemy and their treacherous brothers.

People were killed left and right by shell, gas or by the knives of the cultists. The fact that Maximilian was one of the few that survived is a testament to his spirit and his fortitude.

Years later, the old man managed to become one of the most successful mercenaries, offering his services to anyone who can afford them and readily finding empoyment in warbands intent on fighting his former, traitorous comrades.

Maximilian displays the idiosyncratic gear of a successful mercenary, including a custom leather vest fitted with metal plates worn under the tunic, a master-crafted sword and ceremonial helmet.

Grenadier

Grenade Junkies are dangerous pyromaniacs obsessed with explosions, the smell of burned flesh and utter destruction.

In combat they throw grenade after grenade, not discriminating friend from foe.

Headsman

Headsman is the unofficial, mocking title given to those who have failed their Masters.

Stripped from all gear except for a giant axe, these men are responsible for gathering materials, unblocking roads and other, humiliating tasks.

In combat they fight like mad men, in an effort to prove themselves and regain their old status.

Blood Troopers

The sadistic German soldiers under Metzger’s command, now free to explore their darkest desires, they patrol the lands with murderous intent.

Pray they don’t take you alive.
