What exactly are the rules of Contract Zero? And would you mind if anyone else used the idea? (With credit of course) It's really interesting
I’d have no problem with anyone else using it but would definitely want a link so I can check it out! Feel free to change the rules as well.
As I’ve currently got them, Mann.co will sometimes take advantage of America’s privatised prison system to ‘acquire’ mercs off death row (or from life sentences if they can’t arrange otherwise).
These mercs sign a private, mostly secret contract called ‘Contract zero’ that states that Mann.co owns them and all their assets in their entirety for the next ten years.
All access to current funds are cut (and since most mercs have their death’s staged they would probably lose access to them anyway). The merc’s are only paid a small amount, less than minimum wage, to keep them going.
Any and all behaviour that Mann.co deems inappropriate or rule breaking can lead to extra months or even years being applied to the contract.
On top of this, the contract only officially starts after a three month probationary period. If a merc doesn’t prove themselves in that time they either get shipped off elsewhere or are disposed of.
Mercs can be disposed of at any time. This bit is written in really really small type on the contract. Really small.
After the ten years (or possibly more) the merc will be set up with a completely new identity and released back into the wild. Or at least they say so.
