Skirmish-level science fiction ground combat game, with detailed background. Though the primary focus is on human (Nexus) vs. alien (Kryomek) warfare, there is plenty of opportunity for human-on-human fighting as well. Human forces include convict infantry, assault troops, cybernetic units, tanks, and striders; weapons include machineguns, cannons, missiles, and gauss rifles. The Kryomek are biological terrors with different unit types (helions - close combat troops; warriors - armed with acid and sword; warmaster - leader and heavy weapons carrier). Each side has differing rules for unit integrity, command, and morale. Combat can take place on planetary surface, within human structures, or within alien hives. Rules based on Stargrunt system.
