Firestorm Armada: Zahlreiche Neuheiten
Spartan Games präsentieren kurz vor der Veröffentlichung des Kampagnenbuchs gleich eine ganze Latte interessanter Neuheiten.
Den Anfang macht eine weitere Corporation aus dem Zirkel des Directorate: OmniDyne.
Although the Directorate is dominated by the trio of economic hyperpowers, beneath them are many smaller corporations jostling for position within the hierarchy of the corporate state. These many companies provide goods and services to the major powers of the Directorate and to outside buyers.
Omni-Dynamics Systems, or OmniDyne, stands upon a knife-edge between overwhelming success and utter devastation. A failed project left the company hugely in debt to Works Raptor, but if Chief Executive Officer Asger Nerivar can achieve a corporate takeover of the Rift’s economy by supplanting the Syndicate, the company stands to enjoy unprecedented prosperity.
Und dann gibt es da noch die Gegenspieler von Omnidyne: das Syndicate.
The ruthless Vylia’sal Syndicate has dominated the volatile and wild region of space known as the Rift for more than fifty years. Once it was simply another player in the turbulent underworld of the lawless area. But through guile, patience and merciless violence, it grew in size and power to such an extent that it is now the closest thing the Rift has to an actual government.
The Syndicate was founded by the devious Aquan former diplomat Tauris Vylia’sal and a handful of compatriots from the Sebrutan. Over time it has come to count a great many other races, most notably humans, amongst its membership. The Syndicate’s members are less concerned with species loyalty than they are with turning in a healthy profit by the easiest means.
The Syndicate either controls or at least has interests in almost every aspect of the Rift’s legal and illegal business. It runs protection rackets, smuggling operations, counterfeiting rings, gun-running agencies and illegal narcotics factories. It even holds the Rift Traders League in thrall, giving it effective control of most merchant traffic in the region.
Und zu guter Letzt gibt es noch Bilder dieser ominösen, mutierten und verzerrten Relthoza-Schiffe… irgendwas ist hier ganz gewaltig schief gegangen.
