Howdy to all the Forumites that like the RPG produced by Modiphius to "Celebrate" the awesome War-Game by Corvus-Belli. . . I will be able VERY soon to start anew a Merc Game centered around Haqqislamite + Nomads + "Other Faction Renegades" collaborating with Ariadnan Special Forces to modernize the Armies and Tactics of "Planet Dawn Original Colonists" (would NOT employ the terms "Aboriginals" or "Natives" as it will pertain the Antipodes, the TRUE residents of the Ariadnan Colony). . . I tried to start the Game, almost 2 Years ago, as based around TAGs and Powered Exoskeletons, but sadly RW complications (both on My parts and of the Many prospective Players) halted and hiccuped that Game of 2. . . Now I have 4 Players to "Restart" that Project (one of the "Original Crew" and 3 others freshers that joined later. . .) and FINALLY I could be do something about "Ariadnan Sponsored Mercs". . . . . . . . But the Players said that they would like FAR More a Game based NOT on "Heavy Armoured Land-Mates" but rather human-sized specialists with a few "NPC Sidekicks" for Stealth / Recon / Special Tasks / "Black Ops". . . My Games are ALWAYS centered on "Players Wishes" rather than a "GM dirven Plot" so I complied without fuss. . . . . . . . But. . . As I am QUITE a Fanatic of "Powered Armour Games" (from the VERY start of when I read the FIRST "Appleseed" Manga of Masamune Shirow made in 1985, in English in 1990 and Italian in 1995) then I thought to "Export" the "Core Concept" of THAT Game on ANOTHER "Planet Scenery". . . . . . . . In My GameS (plural wanted !!!) Background there is a "Criminal Organization Of Smugglers" that SEEMS to link "Disgruntled Combined Army Aliens" (mainly Shaasvastii "Genetic Purists" chafing under the OPPRESSIVE "Illuminated Dictatorship" of the E.I.) to various "Submondo Slaver Rings". . . . . . . . In the Ariadnan Based Game there SEEMS to be the "Rogue Criminal A.I." of the Human Sphere, Svengali, that is linking Teseum Smugglers from Planet Dawn to Nomad-Based "Bakunites Slave Pits" Managers from the Nomad Motherships. . . . . . . . But there are OTHER sides of this "Galaxy Spanning Criminal Conspiration". . . . . . . . On Svarhalheima, on the CONTESTED "Borders" between "Huangdi" (the Yujing Controlled territory, claimed as named "Niflheim" by Pan-Oceanians) and the Pan-O Zones, there is a GROWING unrest by "Local Natives", the descendants of Miners and Ice-Workers that FEEL they are NOT "Citizen Subjects of the State-Empire" and NEITHER "Low Level Prolets of Pan-Oceania". . . This "Ice People Rights Movement" started by exchanging precious ores from ABANDONED Factories and Mines in the CONTESTED zones (a Plot SHAMELESSLY ripped from the "Outrage Manga") with Weapons and Wargear provided by the Druze Criminal Cartel. . . The Operation was UTTERLY cracked by FIRST the intervention of Hexa-Sponsored Mercs and THEN a "Full Dragnet" by Yujing Military Police; but the ANGRY "Snow People" STILL wanted an armed insurrection against "Cruel, Distant, Indifferent Masters from Out-The-Planet". . . The issue with the Japanes Insurrection FANNED the Flames, as "Snow-Samurai Patriots" and "Ice Ninja Terrorists" directed by Tatenokai-Kempeitai "Handlers" attacked NOT ONLY Yujingese Garrisons, but ALSO "Liberated" Armories and Supply Depots deep inside Pan-O Controlled Zones. . . . . . . . At FIRST the Hexaedron plauded; still reeling from the "Outrage Debacle" they were GLAD the Forces of Yujing licked their wounds retreating behind "Heavily Garrisoned Mountaintop Fortress". . . But THEN any and ALL the "Pan-O Ateks / Pseudoateks" of the contested zones started to revolt, making organized strikes, do whatever they could to harass and hamper the "Precious Ores Flow" and Mining Lobbies started to suffer for it. . . . . . . . A.L.E.P.H. controlled "Posthuman Supervisors" started to collate Reports from BOTH the sides (Asura Operatives with the Imperial Security Service and Guailang Rangers; Naga "Scouts" working in tandem with Nisse Military Police) and a TROUBLING pattern emerged. . . . . . . . The so-called "N.E.M.E.S.I.S. Anarco Terrorist Cartel" that had started Operations on Planet Dawn, AGAINST the Ariadnan Federal Government THEN had ALSO gained a STRONG "Foothold" entrenching itself in "Svarhalheiman Independence Patriots". . . Japanese Kempeitais are SLOWLY "Subverted" by Ninja Operatives of UNPARALLELED "Hyper Stealth Capabilities" that WORRINGLY resembles "Lower Tech Speculo Killers" and Pan-O "Snow Ateks" have NOW access to a "Pseudo-Arachne" Non-Maya "Local Network Matrix" that is TROUBLINGLY similar to "Svengali's Source Code". . . . . . . . In a UNPARALLELED tactical move then A.L.E.P.H. counseled O12 to PRESS both Yujing State-Empire and Panoceanian Military Complex an incredibly daring proposal. . . Create a JOINT "Military Police Force" that will have the BEST Operatives from Pan-O and Yujing (with the "Gentle Overseeing" of "Myrmydon Military Police" Specialists) to be "Border Patrol" against the "Xeno Evil" starting to "Burrow Under The Dark Ice Of Niflheim". . . . .!!! As RESOURCES are stretched THINNER than normal due to the debacles on Paradiso (and other fronts) the "Special Border Joint Command" privileges "Artic Warfare" TAG Pilots that operates WITHOUT "Light Infantry Support" and MINIMAL "Drone Ancillary Sub-Units". . . Enter the Players. . . . .
