    Default Are Black Shield REALLY a Merc clan?

    They seem to be at all the sieges lately hired or not. So are they mercs? Sure they come as a 3rd party supposedly just for PvP; BUT regardless with them showing up and killing folks from one side of the siege they are then INDIRECTLY helping the other side.

    So can they really be a merc clan when they actually do help a side in the end even if not paid when they kill off parties of 1 side?

    They parade about as a merc clan, but are no different than any other clan out there.

    I think it'd be accurate to say Black Shields are pvpers before mercs.

    I mean this IS Darkfall. If there's a fun siege going on, do you think a group of skilled players is just going to sit in their city and say "Aw shucks, nobody paid us to fight!" or go kick some ass.

    If they want to fight for free who cares -----> maybe keep their reputation flying or one of a million other reasons that they might have to justify their own actions. Why would they restrict themselves to your concept of what a mercenary is?

    The bottom line is if a flight is going on why wouldn't they want to get involved? Builds rep and future work.

    Main reason is they shouldnt be getting into sieges that they were not paid to be on either side its bad for a merc clan to do that because now they are no longer neutral they are part of politics.

    You aren't playing the game so what does it matter to you?

    *edit*

    Mods, this obviously belongs in the clan discussion section.. if the OP can't post there then too bad for him.

    I think the whole server should band up for one siege and stomp them. Mercs should stay out of sieges if not paid to be there, but they are at every one.
