The Legends of Mernac is driven to providing an audience to up and coming talent and will host various contests at all times in the search to find that next great writer and/or artist. The only requirements are that participants must be registered users, which is free. Contests will include, art contests, writing contests, even programming contests! And, users can also sponsor their own contests!

The developers of The Legends Mernac are also working on additional phases which are slated to include music and/or soundtracks, RPG Gaming, animations, movie clips, and, eventually, full-feature movies. All of these functions will be available to the public-at-large, providing users an even more means to create their own “LEGENDS” in the world of MERNAC.

Founder of The Legends of Mernac, Rick Merriman, has based his creation on a philosophy of people helping people. The goal being thousands of talented (yet undiscovered) writers, artists, musicians, programmers, promoters or business people provided an outlet for their passions and a possible ultimate escape from the standard 9-5 job. According to Mr. Merriman, “The Bottom line: I believe that the surest path to success is to help other people become successful. I believe that after providing my family with a comfortable living (and a way for others [who contribute to, or promote Mernac] to provide their families with a comfortable living) that the bulk of any profits should be used to fund and help talented people create their art.”
