Mercenary Monument Design Competition -

"Mercenary Monument"

DERBY, Oopsville - The Ministry of Defense has recently announced a design competition to erect a memorial to the thousands of mercenary soldiers who fought and died in the 100 Years Civil War throughout the Outer Dust Rings. Seen here is one of the early designs submitted by the ex patriot Terran artist, Michael Warren, himself a Mercenary Soldier attached to the legendary Point Squad Alpha led by the equally legendary battlefield commander, The Sloganeer. The monument proposed by Warren is a holographic image of a series of posts where actual signatures of the soldiers have been scanned and morphed into a common typeface. The site of these memorial posts are most impressive at night but shimmer and shine even in full sunlight. While this is only the first of many expected designs, it's the only proposal we have for illustration purposes to date. For a copy of the Request for Proposals and submission guidelines, please contact Ministry of Defense office closest to you.
