App description: Build your mercenary army and raise your banner to epic heights in a broken, ravaged world. Wage head-to-head battles against other players in the finest turn-based strategy wargame, RAVENMARK: Mercenaries!

**** Selected as the App Store's Best of 2013 for Indie Games in Singapore! ****

== PLEASE NOTE ==
RAVENMARK: Mercenaries is FREE TO WIN! The game was designed such that you do not need to spend real money to defeat other players, only your wits. However, certain options to customise your army, which are not required for enjoyment of the game, may be purchased with real money. Additionally, the game is ad-supported. If you prefer a seamless play experience without ads, please consider supporting us by purchasing the Collectors Edition IAP to remove ads.

Mercenaries delivers an evolution of the turn-based strategy mechanics that won critics over in the original 2011 wargame, RAVENMARK: Scourge of Estellion. Mull over strategic troop placement in the Command Phase, before committing your orders into the we-go Battle Phase where friend and foe move and attack in the same phase. Conquer your foes with grit and tactical superiority!

MERCENARY MAYHEM
Challenge other human players to asynchronous battles, or embark on mercenary contracts to sharpen your skills on your own and gain favour with each of the warring nations. As your mercenary company grows rich in silver and renown, be prepared to face off against tougher challengers in multiplayer matches.

CUSTOMISED COMBAT
Acquire the services of diverse Brigades of mercenaries, each with their own history and combat styles. Mix and match these Brigades together to form your own style of combat! As you gain experience in battle, experiment with Commander Traits to embellish your style of command, and hire Advisors to reap greater bounties from your battles.

TACTICAL EVOLUTION
Stalwart combat features like Standing Orders and Formations return to offer expanded tactical options for players, while new features such as Zone of Control and the Standard Bearer throw game-changing twists into battle! Observe the satisfying progression of your mercenary company as your Brigades harden with battle experience.

A WORLD SCARRED
In the events of Mercenaries, set six years after the events of the original RAVENMARK, the world of Eclisse has been scarred irrevocably by the vendetta of Estellions vengeful new ruler, the Scarlet Empress. Players may delve into the worlds rich lore and discover the evolved power struggle between the three warring nations: once-glorious Estellion, the fledgling Varishah, and silent but stern Esotre.

RAVENMARK: Mercenaries requires a network connection to play. Also, please note that the game is a constant work in progress. Certain aspects of the game involving multiplayer combat may be rebalanced from time to time to improve the player experience.

Hey there! Yes, I'm sorry but a constant connection is require since we do the battle calculations on the server so people can't cheat. =X

Hi all, Jonathan from Witching Hour Studios here. I'm the part-time community manager, here to tell you what's on tap with Ravenmark: Mercenaries.

-We have ver. 1.08 up. Key changes include new Brigade IAP packs and a few ability changes here and there. See the link for more info.

-We have a Lunar New Year tournament. At the moment, our slots are full, but if more people can participate, we will bump it up to 32 players. http://bit.ly/rvmlnyhs

-We also have a fanfiction contest (called Two Brigades, One Tale) where you're allowed to write stories focused on two Brigades and their respective captains. As long as there's no detailed erotica, anything's fair game. http://bit.ly/rvmff2b

-To liven up the development blog, we are doing a weekly(ish) column called Behind The Cauldron where our fine creators talk about current events in the games industry. Take a look at the latest post here.

That's all for now, folks! Do keep updated with our doings and deeds on Twitter (@RavenmarkSaga, @witchinghourSG) and on Facebook. Of course, if you want to address topics directly to me, you can do so on Twitter (@MrToffee).

RAVENMARK: Mercenaries - Enter the multiplayer war for turn-based tactical supremacy!
