This rules supplement is a comprehensive collection of options¸ rules and background for infantry¸ special forces and intelligence operatives in the Armageddon 2089 Roleplaying Game. While their methods and focus may differ¸ they have one thing in common: they meet combat face to face¸ unprotected by tons of armour and weaponry. Whether working for a nation state¸ a corporation or as a part of a mercenary company¸ foot soldiers in 2089 define versatility¸ choosing their careers in different fields of warfare¸ with covert operations and military intelligence as much a part as special forces and demolitions training.
The "Soldier's Companion" opens the way to playing campaigns focusing on the subtler aspects of war¸ far from the deafening roar of WarMek weapons. The first chapter offers an insight into the meaning of being a soldier in a world where wars are fought between metal titans; who the soldiers are and what they do to stay alive. The Advanced Operative presents prestige classes for soldier and officer characters¸ broadening their fields of expertise while specialising their talents in a certain area of personal combat and general warfare. New feats follow¸ with options for honing an operative's skills. Covert Missions explores the shady world of espionage and infiltration¸ while Unconventional Warfare provides a look at the dirty side of war: black ops and irregular warfare. Personal Equipment provides soldiers with new tools to improve their performance¸ while Power Armour describes the highly experimental miniature Meks¸ the fighting chance of infantry against WarMeks.
