Praxis exists for cutting-edge experiments, for scientific anarchy. ‘Fringe technology’ means you’re delving into uncharted territory, and sometimes it goes wrong and stops working. Other times, it goes haywire and becomes an almighty problem. When that happens the Moderators are not enough to cut it, so they send the Tasksmasters to save the day.

Our home, the place we’re sworn to protect, is Bakunin. Now think for a second what that must mean. You have VaudeVille, right? Packed with weirdos with exotic implants doing designer drugs, Pupniks who lost their owner—little rascals can be quite dangerous when agitated—, Chimeras high on heck-knows-what… Sounds like a darned pain to police, doesn’t it? Shoot, that’s the easy part. The real nightmare is this place right here, Praxis. This is where you have the Black Laboratories and the real weirdos. This place exists for cutting-edge experiments, for scientific anarchy. ‘Fringe technology’ means you’re delving into uncharted territory, and sometimes it goes wrong and stops working. Other times, it goes haywire and becomes an almighty problem. When that happens, the Moderator Corps is not going to cut it, so they send us in to find the weirdness and beat the devil out of it until it stops acting up. It’s never easy, but that’s why we’re the Special Weapons and Suppressive Tactics team, we’re elite. When you’re up against freaking mad science, you have to make your own rules and improvise. And if every once in a while that means taking a bunch of Morlocks and throwing them into the fray to buy us a few minutes and some room to maneuver, so be it. It’s not going to keep me up at night, and if you folks object to that, well that’s your problem. As I said, we make the rules here. Tell us what’s the issue and we’ll take care of it, but don’t tell us how to do it, ‘cause that’s our job. And believe me; we’re darned good at it.

Sergeant 1st Class Brad Corrigan, SWAST-4. Rogue ontodroids-related incident in the Celestial Choir of the Cosmic Power module. Praxis. Bakunin.

Exclusive Preview: Umbra Legates with Spitfire

MayaCast is thrilled to have this exclusive preview of the Umbra Legates with Spitfire for you all to enjoy today!

The Umbra. One of the most dangerous, murderous races in the entire universal warriorhood. Mysterious martial artists from an unidentified planet, the Umbra have been the scourge of the cosmos for ages. Subjugated, dominated or seduced by the EI, they have become its field assistants, a conduit through which the Evolved Intelligence makes its wishes known. They serve as the EI’s heralds, enforcers, mediators, lieutenants, judges, executioners and right-hand men. Their political and military specialty is trouble, and the causing and suppressing thereof. Brought forth by the darkness, these cruel entities hold a fearsome power that the EI harnesses to inflict the worst punishments and lead mass destruction operations as their wrath seethes unmeasurably.

“Pray. Pray hard. Pray that your god will help you. If you don’t have a god, make one up now. No one else is coming to save you, now that the Umbra are on their way. And they’ve already chosen you as their prey, so they’re coming at you with everything they’ve got. You have no way to stop what’s going to happen.”

Excerpt from debriefing of prisoner Roob Paavan, Maakrep Unit. Forward post on the Northern Front. Norstralia. Paradiso.

280683-0655-UmbraScene1

“An enigma. A deadly mystery. We don’t even know whether they are living beings in the strict sense of the world. The factual information about them available to us amounts to nothing. All we have is hearsay, and an increasingly long list of casualties attributable to these demons.”

Second Lieutenant Katherine Cho, Psi Unit, O-12 Military Intelligence. Information assembly of the Paradiso Coordinates Command. Map Room of the frigate POS Indomitable. Paradiso far orbit.

The Forgotten Annals of the T’zechi Digesters contain statements from long-extinct races that called the Umbra Maat’zani, “the genocides”. The viciousness and ruthlessness of these beings is legendary. According to statements compiled by the T’zechi, the Umbra enter combat brimming with an unbridled desire to wreak destruction, never yielding or hesitating until they rise over the broken, bloodied corpses of their enemies.

Excerpt from Allied operatives and assets in the Paradiso Deployment. A critical evaluation, by analyst-scholar Saari Blaado, adviser of the Sygmaa Trihedron.

280683-0655-UmbraScene3

“Of all the psychopathic, murderous races in the known universe, the EI has chosen none other than the Umbra to bring back. Disregard the EI’s rhetoric and the propaganda of its empire. It is meaningless. Any power that resorts to employing the Umbra cannot be well-intentioned or benevolent. Nothing good can come from the works of these monsters.”

Excerpt from A Cynical Gaze upon the Universe, by Cal3fex Observer, Cultural Gnomon of the Second Transversal Matriarchy.

The Umbra Legates with Spitfire is part of the September Releases for Infinity the Game!

MayaCast Preview: Overdron Batroid

“Beyond appearances, there is always something beautiful and stunning about exceptional tools, those machines which are ideal to carry out their assigned duty. The Overdron Batroids are pieces that represent the perfect connection that comes about unintentionally between functionality and design.”

91-Ovedrone Batroid Dossier 2016 Gris

“They are immense, crude and slow compared to other Batroids. However, just a simple glance will see both the most sophisticated art lover and the most demanding gunsmith overcome with awe. No designer has bothered to soften its techno-organic shapes and no artist has balanced out the sheer volume of muscles that grow so quickly but these represent a celebration of beauty that lacks any aesthetic charm.”

91-zOvedrone Batroid 3D

“In other words, it’s functional beauty.”

92-Tinbots

“They do what they aim to do in an excellent way – the Overdrons have no purpose except to destroy and this is something they do perfectly. It’s not surprising that the Ur grew fond of these Batroids as the Overdrons respond and destroy in a most excellent way.”

Excerpt from A Cynical Gaze Upon the Universe, by Cal3fex Observer, Cultural Gnomon of the Second Transversal Matriarchy

 

This bad boy is FIERCE!

Maybe we should start a petition to get those TinBots made as plushies! Totes Adorbs!

Dossier Preview: Tohaa Sukeul Commandos

Today we have the intimidating, terrifying, and awesome Dossier for the Sukeul Commandos!

93-ZSukeulCommandosDossier

“They say old soldiers never die. Well, the Sukeul Commandos are formed by nothing but dead soldiers. Every one of its members is a veteran operative, a fatality of a past conflict whose skills were too precious for the Trident’s High Command to lose. The have all been recovered for their combat experience, and the only way to wring out every ounce of it is to keep deploying them. Each of their number has their own tactical specializations, so they get their pick of the crop when it comes to combat gear and armament. As highly trusted agents, they are responsible for the most dangerous Direct Action operations of all, those that fall under the designation Contact and Death, usually too classified to mention. Judging by their past performance, these veterans rarely fail to deliver violence and destruction where it is needed most. Their record sheets are brimming with extraordinary actions and massive body counts, but the details are known only to a select few with the appropriate clearance. On the battlefield, Sukeul Commandos never relax their trigger fingers, firing at will but maintaining startling levels of precision. They laugh in the face of heavily armed assault troops and TAGs alike. They will make an example out of any proud soldier stupid enough to stand in their way. They know every trick in the book and every shortcut to mission cleared. Sukeul never fail. They are the best of the best and anyone in their sights is about to learn their lesson for good. They leverage the experience gained in past operations and former lives to push a little further every time. They are the dead that always come back, and they always come back with a win. This is a superb unit whose members are self-sacrificing but sordid. They have acquired a taste for blood that guarantees conclusive results mission after mission, gunfight after gunfight.”

Tohaa – Kaauri Sentinels

Check out this amazing Dossier we have received for the brand new Tohaa troop profile – the Kaauri Sentinel!

z83-Kaauri Sentinels Dossier 2016 Gris

These little (S1) guys are very cool looking – and that Tohaa SMG design is Legit!

Kaauri

Perhaps the greatest menace to the Tohaa Trident in its protracted war has been the fear and paranoia instilled by the Shasvastii operatives. These underhanded aliens can, through the judicious use of stealth and impersonation, sap the morale of entire units with a single strike, a single assassination. To counteract this insidious threat, the Trident entrusted its Sudiel Section with designing a stopgap solution: an artificial sentry whose watchful eyes would spot any and all intruders. The engineers of the 77 worked tirelessly to improve upon a parasitic life form called Kaaras, a viciously territorial creature that, by tapping into its host’s central nervous system, heightens its senses to detect imminent threats. Specialists from the Sudiel Section subjected this semi-sentient parasite to a process of neural reprogramming, guiding its development into a sort of accelerated, truncated version of Exaltation. Through this process, the species’ intelligence thresholds and submissive tendencies were enhanced, molding it into an obedient but fierce guardian. Once reprogrammed, Kaaras are mounted on mid-range biosynthetic bodies bristling with sensors. When the Kaaras attaches itself to the host’s nervous network, the resulting creature is known as a Kaauri Sentinel. Although their intelligence falls short of true sentience, Kaauri are loyal and deeply devoted to their protective mission. They will readily die to defend their Tohaa masters, and in truth they cannot even contemplate the alternative. It is simply written into their brains.
