Ari, the Mercenary by knighthead Ari, the Mercenary by knighthead
My entry for Nexon's Mighty Mugg contest. My design was a pretty generic one, a mercenary from a warrior school who will join your party by request (and a fee). She would be computer-controlled and fight alongside you with power comparable to your own, also giving your party a passive buff that increases your damage by X% (Nexon would figure out balance issues if it actually got accepted). Main reason I want an NPC like that is because whenever we team up with an NPC they're always weak as hell! The Silent Crusade line, they were like level 20s or something. This would also be good for someone needing one more person in their Zakum party, a filler at Lion Heart Castle, a training partner to make your grind go by faster-- I think it would be fun. Because her power is equal to your own, as you get stronger, so will she.

I guess so! I want to think of her more as a party member who just isn't an actual person. You'd sort of "rent" her for maybe an hour or so and she would help you for that time.

Yup! I hope that if I somehow win (which I won't, since the second part of the contest is impossible for me) that Nexon works with me to get the kinks out. Especially the clause of "what if someone else has Ari in their party when I want to party them?"

Hmm... I'm thinking it would be like you're already in a party when teamed up with her, and can have other people join your party... but if you disband your party to join someone else, she goes *poof*. Yeah... that works.
