A game about the pilots of powerful machines in a war that dominates every facet of life. They are trying to do their time and part, and get out physically and mentally intact. The organizations that perpetuate the War through all of known space are too incomprehensibly huge to take down. There is no “winning” the War, there is only surviving it.

These are their stories.

COMPLICATION: the bodies are full of explosives. A camera crew of 6 people will be accompanying the squad in an APC to get footage of the honourable delivery.
