You will be notified whether you passed or failed within 24 hours. If you failed, you may try again after one day has passed.
If you passed, welcome to the mercenary army known as the Vindicta Force. Your score on the test will affect your starting rank. What does my rank do you ask? A lot. Your rank will determine how many men serve under you, which missions you are able to take, the quality of support you receive from HQ, and of course, your pay. Those who passed the test will be notified of their rank in their acceptance letter.
For now I will introduce you to your commanding officers. Who you work under will be determined by which department you serve in. If you're going to be on the front lines, you work under me. My name is Beck. Our job is pretty straight forward: go out and shoot anything that moves.
In charge of espionage is Jenova Chen. If spy work is your thing, you'll be working for her.
Heading up R&D is Elena Heimrich. If you like working in a lab and making new weapons or piloting tanks and jets, she'll be your boss.
The voice you'll all get used to hearing on your radio is George Hampton. He's in charge of mission support. This includes communications, extractions, and air strikes.
And last but certainly not least is Akihiko Sudai, PhD. He's the leader of the medical unit. Treating the injured and manufacturing biochemical weapons are his strong points.
There's one more person you'll probably meet while you're working here. He's our best operative. Goes by the handle Zero and works with an android partner called CAT. They're both off on an assignment right now.
I'll now take this time to explain how things will work around here. As you know, the Vindicta Force is a private military contractor. We take various jobs all around the world and make about $5 billion a year. Our base is quite large and has everything you'll need. Cafeteria, doctor's office, sports facilities, dormitories, and an arcade are just a few of the facilities we have here.
Once you get settled in, you'll get right to work. There won't be a fancy welcoming ceremony or anything. We're all too busy around here for that.
There will be a mission board in the main hall where you can choose your missions provided we don't have any priority tasks to worry about at the time. Which missions you can accept are based on your rank and department. Multiple units may work together on a single task or a single operative can take it. It all depends on the situation and who's available to work. If you have men working under you, use them to your advantage.
Once you accept a mission, you will fulfill the objective however you see fit. You can radio HQ for advice but for the most part, you are on your own. You will be graded on how well you perform and may even receive a promotion if you perform above and beyond the call of duty. Each of you will be assigned a communications officer feeding you information so you'll always be able to make the best choices available.
While on missions, you may find resources. It is in all of our best interests that you secure them whenever possible. Resources can be given to R&D to develop new equipment or upgrade our current gear. Those who are interested should speak to Miss Heimrich for more info.
That is all for now! If you have any questions, now's the time. If not, why not tell us a little about yourself? Your name, age, rank, department, and whatever else you want.
