Mercenary Factions For SPAM

Thanks to the SPAM sub-mod for BTA (please read its entry in the FAQ for details about the sub-mod and what it does), BTA has now added a large volume of mercenary commands and pirate bands as eligible sub-factions for players to encounter during gameplay. For the curious, a list of the mercenary commands is below so you can know where you can fight any given mercenary or pirate group. Also, if a mercenary command has anything special about it, it will be specifically noted on their entry on the list. The list will be organized by "parent" faction (i.e. the faction that the listed mercs work for, so a mercenary unit listed under the Capellan Confederation heading can be found as a SPAM replacement on missions against the Capellan Confederation). Unless otherwise noted, *all* of these factions also work for Local Government and the "generic" Mercenaries faction currently found in BTA. Finally, unless otherwise noted, *all* of these factions are true and canon BattleTech mercenary and pirate units, all of which have backgrounds that can be found on Sarna for your reading pleasure.

One of the most legendary mercenary companies in the Inner Sphere, the Kell Hounds were founded in 3010 by Morgan and Patrick Kell.

They continued to grow and prosper until 3016, with a climactic duel between Morgan Kell and Yorinaga Kurita of the Draconis Combine's Second Sword of Light. The fight ended in a draw after an improbable series of events prevented Kurita from targeting Kell's 'Mech. Shortly thereafter, Morgan Kell abruptly disbanded two-thirds of the Kell Hounds and consigned himself to a life of exile in a relgious retreat on Zaniah for a time. Currently, the Kell Hounds are managed by Morgan once again and serve as the wardens of the Arc-Royal Defense Cordon against the Jade Falcons.
