Chris Knudsen has been working on the mechanics of the Mercenaries' Guild system for Ascii Sector, and that interface is now complete. Users log in by clicking on the keypad and are presented with a list of missions. The variety and complexity of the missions increase as the player's rating goes up. Each mission has an expiration time, and until that point it will appear in the guild computer terminal on any planet or base. Work on the commodity exchange and supply/demand system will be next, and this will then tie into the Merchants' Guild database.
