Now that we have gotten what I believe will be a nice firm company sized group of mech pilots, I'm interested to see if there are any other mercenary companys that would like to discuss an 'alliance' of sorts. Given the nature of human beings there will be times (IG) where your company is short-changed or not paid at all once the grind for Faction Warfare begins. How are you planning to deal with this? I think I have an idea.
I would like to see a collective of mercenary companies operating independently but with an agreement to form a coalition if one of its members are shafted. The bargining power of such a force would make the contractor much less likely to shaft any Company.
House Steiner hires Bravo Whiskey Charlie and the Dark Sabres to handle the pacification of XYZ world in Kurita. Suffering pretty severely they are successful and the world and its resources change hands to House Steiner. Steiner then refuses to pay for services rendered.
The word goes out and as the other members of the Coalition finish up their present contracts they in agreement with BWC and the Sabres pick four worlds to grind on behalf of House Kurita. These worlds then come under the firepower of the combined X number of mercenary companies until BWC and the Dark Sabres are paid in full plus a bit for having to deal with their backstabbing.
I know its kind of a rough sketch idea right now but thats pretty much the jist of it until we can actually see how standings from the Faction Warfare will go. I'd propose a representative from the companies be given guest access to each others TeamSpeak or Ventrilo to help with the discussions.
This could come in handy as well if say my group - the Dirt Nap Squad simply can not handle the a job by itself could contact, for example, the leadership of The Skjaldborg and ask that the Svinfylking be attached to DNS for a job and cut of the contract.
Just ideas for now but looking forward to maybe talking with some of you others to hash things out.
