The Story


And even if it is a totally rotten and corrupt regime, don't suppose for one moment that you as the liberator will be greeted with open arms...

In the small Latin-American country of Arulco an unscrupulous dictator by the name of
Diedranna rules.

In the year 1999 a coup-d'etat failed his goal of liberating the land and introducing democratic elections. No one knows exactly what fate befell the members of mercenary units operating in the country.

The hard fact is that the small country is now, as it was before, completely in hands
of the originally Romanian wife of the rightful ruler, Enrico Chivaldori who is now in
exile. Now there is new trouble in Arulco! US investigations have brought to light secret drug channels.
US investigations about secret drug trafficking channels have brought to light that in this already plundered land there is a newly formed and extremely active drug Mafia with international connections. The drug cartel seems in the meantime to be an all-penetrating power, which is why Arulco has again become the focus of international political interest.

You'll be operating under contract from the Central Intelligence Agency and will be smuggled into the land with a troop of mercenaries. It is your task to bring to an end that which in the year 1999 was not achieved and to smash the ever-present drug cartel in Arulco. Your authorization is a letter that you carry with you from the exiled President Enrico Chivaldori, whose contacts to the rebels in the country could prove to be very useful.
Believe us when we declare, that there is no easy task awaiting you! You'll need the
strategic insight of a general, the negotiating skills of a diplomat, the financial savvy of
a CEO-and a squad of some of the deadliest mercenaries to ever hit the streets. Should you fail, your " client" will deny all knowledge of your existence.

This is Jagged Alliance 2 WildFire, an exciting mix of strategy and role-playing that puts
you in charge of a nation's fight for freedom. You'll hire a core group of skilled professionals through A.I.M., the Association of International Mercenaries. You'll win the local population over to your side by displaying courage and loyalty. You'll train your men around the clock, then send them into dangerous missions and lethal fire fights. You'll conquer the depths of underground mines, reap their riches, and discover their secrets.
Each success will bring you closer to total victory; each failure must be overcome with
iron determination. Sometimes a tactical withdrawal can bring more than a battle at any price. Use the possibility of retreating from one sector only to surprise the enemy by attacking another flank. Some of your enemy's bases may seem at the beginning
to be impregnable, for example Drassen.
Here you will have to become stronger step by step and slowly gain your ground. In
the end you will prevail, if you remember a few things. Stay focused on your goal.
Keep your men well supplied with both ammunition and inspiration. And keep the cash
flowing--there's nothing, nothing, nastier than a mercenary whose pay check just bounced.

To jump into the game, just turn the page. This introduction will show you the most
important basic moves in jagged Alliance 2 Wild Fire without explaining every single step.
