The Mercenary Guild is a fort owned by Ingvar, the leader of the guild. It is located very centrally on the map, south of the Kingdom of Tolrania, west of Drahara, north of the Hakkon Empire, and east of Elintor. The Guild is a safe haven for mercenaries, deserters, and any other groups of soldiers that have found themselves lost or wanting to start anew in Perisno.
Inside the fort Edit
The courtyard surrounding the central tower inside the fort is filled with many different types of troops from different cultures and allegiances. The player cannot recruit any of these soldiers to their party except for the two soldiers standing to the left of the fountain next to the training dummies. The rest of the hireable soldiers can be found inside the center castle, with three located on the first floor and two more located on the second floor, for a total of seven different troop types recruitable at a time.
Available troops Edit
The Mercenary Guild is special for the fact that the player has the chance of finding and hiring nearly every usually obtainable type of troop in the game. Notable exeptions include Aroulian troops, Dreaded and high-level Church of Faith troops, high-level troops from the Third Legion and Ukundu, and special household troops like Tylen Rogue Kingsmen or Arcane Defenders.
On the top floor of the castle the player can find Ingvar, the leader of the Mercenary Guild. Ingvar gives the player a brief introduction to the Guild and explains that he trains special mercenaries that can use custom equipment selected by the player in battle. Ingvar sells up to 125 of these mercenaries at a time (15-25 are added every time the Guild's mercenaries are refreshed until he has over 100).
These custom mercenaries begin as weak recruits, but can be upgraded into fairly powerful troops (~400 proficiencies, high skills). What makes them especially potent is the ability to select their gear- the top-tier troops have access to some of the strongest and most dangerous armors and weapons in the game.
