Fireteam Zero Blog!
For the next several weeks, we’re going to be releasing an absolute metric ton of info about FTZ. To do that, we’ve started a blog over on Board Game Geek. I’ll occasionally drop something off here at Fugitive Prose, but with the volume of game posts we’re planning, I figured it was best to keep things separated.
Here’s what the latest post looks like, wherein we reveal the hero figures for the game and talk a little about the lore. If board games are your thing (and they totally should be), come by so you can catch all the updates as they happen!
In 1942, four soldiers vanished from the training program of the newly formed First Ranger Battalion, their names stricken from the roster. Chosen for their unique skills, they would fight in secret against terrifying supernatural enemies and overwhelming odds.
This is their story.
Before mankind ruled the planet, magic seeped from the Earth and created a world of wonder and horror that we have long since forgotten. As human numbers increased, the raw chaos of magic was pushed back, eliminated by our shared perception of an ordered world. Now, in the Age of Man, only two things are needed to allow a remnant of the past to rise again: a drastic reduction in the local human population and the power of blood spilled by violence. Welcome to WW2.
Artifacts long buried begin to surface and feed. In the midst of a global war comes a new threat to all of humanity. A threat for which we have no answer. Yet.
Two specialists are deployed by the mysterious Division Zero. One can somehow detect and track the presence of nearby supernatural forces. The other has dedicated his life to becoming a living encyclopedia of the arcane.
What one can find, the other knows how to destroy.
But neither Specialist is capable of getting through the army of lethal protectors that each Artifact creates. For that, they need men of war.
Meet Fireteam Zero
Four men were selected by Division Zero to protect the Specialists and cut a path through anything foolish enough to stand between them and their target.
They are Fireteam Zero. And they will not fail.
Stay tuned for a look at each hero and the skills they bring to the battlefield! Also, show your support for the amazing art team behind FTZ by giving us a thumb!
