Well it's hugely static. It's like, the only way you could make this interesting is if it's the Wall Street of mercenary stories.

Tycho's frames are a frame gang that found itself with a battle to fight. That seems like they might have started off mercenary.

I should have known he'd have concocted a story for them. They are beautiful work, too.

They were a lot of fun to build. All the custom companies were fun, actually.
I worked on the setting and mecha design, but my opinions are personal. I am not the fun police.

I got onto this a bit too late to snap one up. I hope you guys sell the decal stickers someday though.

Weyland-Yutani reference? Or just throwing Reiser's name out there?
Self-appointed lore buff.

While I really do hate Paul Reiser, I'm referring to Weyland Yutani here, yeah.

That's pretty much the goal of any good story about mercs, IMO; they start off simple with some backstory and fun personalities, and then everything JUST GOT REAL, YO.
