Default CT Mercenary character generator for Mac OS X

Mercenary is an Intel-only Mac OS X application that generates characters with an Army or Marines background.

It follows the rules in Book 4: Mercenary, published in 1978. It includes two starting options for the player character:
  1. Enrollment in the Military or Naval Academy as defined in an article in The Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society, issue 10, published in 1981. Application to flight school for marine characters achieving honors is not supported. A +1 DM on promotion die rolls is available for both army and marine academy graduates.
  2. Enrollment in college as defined in Book 5: High Guard, 2nd edition, published in 1980. Application to medical school or flight school for characters achieving honors is not supported.
To exactly follow the rules in Mercenary without the JTAS 10 options, select Enlistment instead of Academy or College.

At each point in the character generation rules where the player may select options, these are offered, along with a description that includes the success die roll and die modifiers, if any. Thus, this app provides complete control over character generation.

Skill availability is automatically limited to skills available at the tech level specified for the character. A skill browser window shows all skills available in the program.

The zip file which contains the application and an extensive READ ME file can be downloaded from here:

It'll be available there for a couple of months and I will probably upload it to the Files section here later.

Let me know what you think. I've already started on a companion app, High Guard, for naval characters.
