Not to be confused with Independent tribes, Mercenaries can be hired by a player in a blind-bid auction (ie. best offer wins). Hired mercenaries remain in a player's employ for 3 turns or until they die (n.b. the hiring turn counts as their first turn, so you only get to directly command them for 2 turns). Newly hired mercenaries appear inside the fortress at that kingdom's capital. If they survive their term of service, they are listed again in the auction and may be bid upon by another player.

Each turn, a random group of mercenaries is available for hire. The following is a list of mercenaries that are present in the game.
