Hello this is a request for anyone who likes coming up with these sorts of things and is familiar enough with the toolset to do it (although fairly simple).

For an upcoming thing in EFU I would like a lot of mercenary group names, small blurbs about what they are and a uniform. For the uniform just include a screenshot and the numbers/color selections for the parts to  make them. You don't need to make a uniform of every type, just some iconic type that sets the theme and I can do the rest if I include it.

I might not use all (or even many) but I'll look and see if anyone has made some that are interesting to use.

A reminder that these are specifically MERCENARY GROUPS, not gangs.

Just post them to this thread at your leisure.

The Fellowship of the Tiger's Flame. These mercenaries are dressed in black, orange, and red uniforms that are patterned after the appearance of fire. They have the advantage of excellent magical equipment, thanks to their endorsements from Ib'javi the Unbound. But that benefit is itself their greatest disadvantage in being considered... for who wants to associate with a devil's favorite customers?

Trithon, the NPC on display, is accessible in #OOC - Ambient NPC Gladiators. He can be manipulated and/or copied to your heart's content with just a few variable changes. Even without that convenience, however, his is a quick and basic design.

An actual, interested DM could choose to outfit the mercenary NPCs with items quickly pulled from the shop of "Blacks the Imp" in Ticker Square.

The Pitter Pack, straight out of Trash Island, is a crew of scavenging toughs that do mercenary work when their muckraked findings can't make ends meet (which is often). They are employed by those who either can't afford anyone better, or those who need a job so dirty that no one else will take it. Although far from professional, they have an assortment of eccentric tools that they've fished out of the sewage, and the backing of a bonafide Small God.

Paul the Pitter Priest, the NPC on display, is also accessible in #OOC - Ambient NPC Gladiators. But his abilities are not suitable for mass reproduction.

Hook hand(s) optional to each mercenary. Base armor is leather, not plate, so the NPCs will want either high dexterity or significantly modified stat blocks on their uniforms. Or they can just be proper garbage men.

The Roar Beneath the Mountain is a band of heavily armored dwarf rangers that hail from the mountains of Ring 94. They are master huntsmen, and slayers of both beasts and men. It is rumored that, for a young dwarf to join their ranks, they must kill a mountain lion while armed with nothing more their bare hands and mean wit. Although their ancestors once served some fabled lost city of dwarves, the Roar today generally survives off bounty hunting contracts.

The Mirror Court is an enigmatic organization of planar mercenaries. They are believed to be exiles of elven promised land, Nestirtye, yet it is unclear how true that rumor is; they are extremely tight-lipped about their origin. They offer significantly fewer troops than the other companies (while somehow remaining more expensive), but they are extremely adept in dealing with magical threats; most energies and mages cannot penetrate their faerie mirror armor.

Sisterhood of the Twilight Star.
Unusual mercenary group gathered by mystic halfling sorcerer who is rumoured was born when odd comet fell somewhere in the City. It's said their captain still holds a shard of this comet. More like some little weird cult but still, they taking contracts from the Merchant Guild from time to time, to visit or do excavation in magical places in the City or somewhere in Seams.
