Infinity, hosted by Ronald Stolk
177 jaar in de toekomst, heeft de mensheid zich verspreid over het universum. Formeel is het vrede, maar informeel is er een conflict gaande tussen de verschillende facties. De strijd wordt uitgevochten met kleine elite eenheden. De sci-fi wereld van Infinity kenmerkt zich door een cyberpunk stijl met anime invloeden. De gevechten tussen de verschillende commando teams zijn daarom erg cinematisch en een mix van vuurgevechten, martial arts en hacking. Naast dat de verschillende menselijke facties elkaar het leven zuur maken, is er ook de dreiging van het buitenaardse die bestreden moet worden. Wil men zogenoemde Combined Army stoppen, dan moet men samenwerken, maar die kans is klein. Om jullie een voorproefje te geven is er een keuze uit drie scenario’s uit de drie huidige startersets van Infinity.
Operation Ice Storm: Panoceania versus the Nomads:
PanOceanian early warning systems have detected an unidentified shuttle following an approach vector towards Moto.tronica’s R&D facilities on Ensom Dal. As per established security protocols, a rapid response team has been mobilized to identify and intercept the intruders. Due to the presence of ongoing top Secret research in the Moto.tronica compound, use of lethal force has been authorized. Standard operational procedure for the first phase of the operation is to secure the perimeter and all acces routes to avoid a breach or escape.
Operation Red Veil: Yu Jing versus Haq Islam:
In the commercial area of the Neon Lotus Orbital Station, Yu Jing and Haqqislam spec ops teams fight for data that could reveal a covert operation to manipulate and subvert the financial markets of the Sphere.
Operation Coldfront: Ariadna versus Aleph
“On the frozen steppes of Dawn, ALEPH has deployed one of her forward bases to fight against the Combined Army invaders. However, the Ariadnans suspect that it is just the first stage of a plot of the AI to increase her influence over their planet, and they will not allow that!”
Infinity is a tabletop wargame in which sci-fi themed miniatures are used to simulate futuristic skirmishes.
Infinity recreates Direct Action operations, high-stakes missions on the battlefront or behind enemy lines, where victory or death are a trigger pull away. Players command a small group of elite soldiers, chosen for their suitability for the mission parameters at hand. Each battle calls for a different composition, and building an effective team from hand-picked members of different regiments is key to a successful operation.
Infinity is a groundbreaking, dynamic system that allows you to make meaningful, fun choices throughout the entire game sequence, and gives you the tools to implement any number of strategies with realism and flexibility.
One hundred and seventy-five years into the future, Humanity has so far managed not to destroy itself—but for how much longer?
Humanity has reached the stars. Massive, internationally-owned trade ships use wormholes to jump from one star system to the next, in a network of looping routes known as Circulars. Circulars are administered by an intergovernmental organization called O-12, an offshoot of the United Nations that has been vested with greater autonomy and capacity to enforce its decisions than its predecessor ever had. A single Artificial Intelligence, named ALEPH, is allowed to exist with the purpose of aiding O-12 maintain the fragile balance of power.
Friction is constant and confrontations—open or covert, high or low-intensity, brief or prolonged—are commonplace.
The old nations slowly agglomerated into a few great federated blocs and claimed as their own those star systems that could sustain human life. These new superpowers, although mightier than the old ones ever were, are still motivated by the same compulsions that have always driven human history: living space, resources, power. Coexistence is hard when everyone is competing for the same things. Friction is constant and confrontations—open or covert, high or low-intensity, brief or prolonged—are commonplace. These are not dull times to be a soldier.
