A game about the pilots of powerful machines in a war that dominates every facet of life.
Engage challenges on a titanic scale! Each pilot has a custom vehicle created from the ground up to suit their desires. The base frame can be humanoid, a more traditional vehicle, or something completely bizarre! They can be equipped with holo-projectors, grapnel anchor tools, missiles, and much more. Take advantage of your vehicle's Quirks (such as Loads of Guns, Exposed Boosters, and Ominous) to more effectively overcome obstacles. Or lean into your machine's faults for XP! Bombard, Scan, Maneuver, and more to deal with threats.
There are several pilot types players can choose from, each facing The War in a unique way, and all have a powerful vehicle to command.
Aces are daring drivers.
Bureaucrats are clever functionaries.
Empaths are compassionate psychics.
Envoys are diplomats and spies.
Hackers are subversive technicians.
Infiltrators are stealthy operators.
Officers are calculating tacticians.
Scouts are pathfinders and snipers.
Soldiers are terrifying infantrymen.
Technicians are chemists, mechanics, and biologists.
The pilots are part of a squad, which is created through a consensus by all the players. Just like a pilot, the squad gets a “character sheet”.
The Consulate spies and politicks.
The Frontlines grind the enemy to dust.
The Logistics deliver the goods.
The Mechanized Cavalry strikes fast and hard.
The Profiteers sell what people can’t get.
The Recon are spies, thieves, and sneaks.
The R&D advance The War’s technology.
The REDACTED neutralize targets.
