Runes of Mayhem: Mercenary Expansion
Power is where the gold is. In a war, not only the strength of you
warriors counts. Hundreds of neutral soldiers are waiting to fight on
your side. With the Mercenary Expansion, a new game mechanism is added
to Runes of Mayhem, allowing you to hire mercenary units.
This expansion contains the following new cards:
Lady Aethelflaed of Mercia
King Sweyn Forkbeard
With the Mercenary Expansion, a new game mechanism is added to Runes of
Mayhem, allowing you to play neutral units. These mercenary units are
not to be shuffled into your decks, they can be hired from a ‘Mercenary
Camp‘ situated next to the battlefield. The hired mercenary units are
placed under the control of the hiring player and they join his/her
army. However, once their service is over, they are demanding their pay.
And if there is no gold to pay? They will take what you own them.
New mechanism: The player may hire one mercenary unit once per turn,
placing it into his or her own side of the Battlefield. When a hired
mercenary unit gets defeated and leaves the game, the player has to pay
its cost in gold. If the player is unable to, then his or her Fortress
By using clever tactics, hiring the right type of mercenaries can be
very handy in empowering your army, creating formations to cross your
opponent’s plans and protect your Fortress. Hire mercenaries at the
right moment, and you won’t have problems paying their cost.
