Image Name ID Description
The Consortium (card).png
The Consortium 1 of 6, Series 1 The Consortium is an ultra-capitalist, corporate empire managed by a board of shareholders.

Since the discovery of etherium on Mars, the Consortium has tightened its grip on this fantastic energy source and its exclusive exploitation on Earth by systematically eliminating its competitors using the Shadow Network, a secret organization that specializes in espionage, sabotage and assassination.

The Awakened of Intar (card).png
The Awakened of Intar 2 of 6, Series 1 The Intari have been involved in the etherium war for centuries. The Intari are organized around an order of warrior prophets who are born, live and die in the name of etherium. Etherium is a central element in their civilization and grants them the gift of precognition, “the awakening”, which allows them to see the future, its different versions and myriad possibilities. According to their “prophets”, etherium is the key to the elevation of their race to a higher level of existence.
The Vectides (card).png
The Vectides 3 of 6, Series 1 Highly advanced technologically, the Vectides are an enigma to all who come into contact with them. Like the Intari, the Vectides have joined in the war for etherium but only recently, and the one encounter with the Vectides ended in a bloodbath. Subsequent analysis of their “soldiers” killed in combat shed no light whatsoever on their nature: their armor contained neither a living organism nor an onboard computer… just etherium; as if the prized resource itself was animating these warlike machines.
The Raiders (card).png
The Raiders 4 of 6, Series 1 Organized into clans, micro societies ruled by ultra-violence bordering on barbarism, Raiders make their presence known on each of the deposit planets. Only a lack of unity and cohesion has so far prevented the Raider clans from claiming any status as a great power, but anyone who could subdue and unify the clans would have some serious shock troops to deploy in the etherium war.
The Guardians (card).png
The Guardians 5 of 6, Series 1 Guardians are autonomous drones with limited AI. Refusing any communication whatsoever, they defend the old, devastated colonies of a race that has clearly been extinct for millennia with ruthless efficiency. Anyone who could reprogram, and therefore control them, would have a formidable argument to bring out onto the battlefield...
The Parasites (card).png
The Parasites 6 of 6, Series 1 Dangerous creatures that feed on etherium, the Parasites infest certain of the deposit planets. While most agree that their total eradication would be the best course of action, certain scientists advocate studying them, arguing that it would be possible to control them and use them as a weapon; one that would cut down any opponents without hesitation.
