http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/gallery/80/full/146.png Let's play a game and imagine you just pledged $1800 (if you did, kudos to you) so you must co-design a merc ingame. How would he/she look like? What would the name, the stats and the skills be? What bodytype? What hair color? And most important, what would be his/her background story?

You can either be textual about this or if you really want to spruce up your merc, use the Original War Face Generator we've found:

http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/ubbthreads.php/topics/314754/Bringing_the_sexy_back.html#Post314754

Go wild, you never know when that rich uncle you never knew dies and leaves you with a huge inheritance to splash on KS!

Runo Buchinsky
Russian conscript turned thug, turned alcoholic, turned immigrant. Uncouth in manners and speech, Runo at least gets the job done. A loner with a thing for firearms which leave rather large holes in their targets.
Spot the cheesy references, win a high five.

An average man with a not so average attitude. Words are a waste of time. "Gunshot speaks louder than any word", Runo says with a grim murmur. Perhaps he just doesn't like English very much.
Years of drinking, as his heritage demands of him, has knocked his health down a few pegs but other than that he's a lean, oiled machine. Just have some booze ready in case he gets cranky.

Professional merc or a cheap gun for hire? Who knows? I'd guess you'd find him in a dive bar, causing trouble.

Traits: Engineer(1.13)/Electronics(JA2), Ambidexterous
Disability: Nervous
Attitude: Arrogant
Character: Malicious
Voice: Slow and articulate with neutral accent, turns to high-pitched and fast with strong polish accent when under pressure.
Personality/dialogue: Overall professional, with hints of arrogance and sarcasm. High self-esteem (maybe not of Conrad's level). Rare breakdowns when in danger.

Comment: Jagged Alliance need more Poles, so there's the name (good luck at spelling that if you're not polish), also there's subtle pun in surname ("schrzanić" means "to screw up"). I always preferred lower level characters, that you can hire at the beginning of the game, so there's his skills. As for the background and personality I aimed for a character with a lot of quirks, but not over the top, so you wouldn't feel like a joke is being thrown into your face (e.g. Rudolf's swear bombs get old pretty fast).

I take it we're not limited to one merc here, cause I still have some ideas? Razz

It's a pretty nice pic, if you can draw that you shouldn't have any trouble to turn that into a JA2 merc portrait for example

If you have other ideas, please post them, seems promissing!

Hell no, go full tilt mate! Btw - i hope you can give FC some pointers what filters to use to get this "classic JA2" look for their portraits. You MUST be in the Advisory Team!

Great piccy , but is someone likely to be arrogant AND nervous ?

Arrogance carries it's own sense of superiority , so maybe another disability ?

This.

Misfire's a hypocrite. Think of Hudson in Aliens - full of himself, but when the all hell breaks loose turns into a wreck (altough he later redeemed himself).

Traits:
(JA2)Lockpicking, Teaching
(1.13)Gunslinger, Auto weapons, Teaching
Attitude: Big shot
Character: Showoff
Voice: Slow, relaxed, and a bit hoarse. Californian accent (if there's such a thing:P). In danger - overenthusiastic.
Personality/dialogue: Style over matter, an ode to the kitsch. Guy's melancholic about idealized image of days gone by, hence his nickname. Entire JA has a bit of 80s action movie feeling, so it's only appropriate. Possible clashes with more pragmatic/professional mercs.

I wasn't out pointing an error, I'm pretty sure both impersonator and imitator are correct in this case. Was highlighting a cool background fact in the bio though:P

JAF should hire you, anv. Seriously! Please keep them coming. And if you have the time for Dwayne Johnson-like character (The Rock), I would appreciate it even more. A character heavily-influenced by Vin Diesel (Riddick) would be cool also.

Hey you can't expect a battle-hardened mercenary who spends all their time in the jungle to keep up with fashion
