Towards the end of the 21st Century¸ the world is torn apart once more by war. The vast armies of the previous century's conflicts are obsolete¸ replaced by a small number of highly trained soldiers each armed with the awesome destructive power of a WarMek. This is the state-of-the-art combat machine used by the two main players in the Armageddon War¸ the European Federation and the United States. WarMeks have transformed the modern battlefield. Carrying as much armour as a battle tank but with more weaponry and far greater flexibility and manoeuvrability¸ they can be landed by ship or submersible and then operate for days behind enemy lines. These missions are typically short due to the difficulties of re-supply in the field. WarMeks must carry all their fuel¸ ammunition and other consumables with them¸ retreating to the shores once more when they begin to run short. Each WarMek team has a dedicated Comms Mek able to signal home with coded messages sent via satellite when they need to be picked up. Other team members are likewise specialised¸ piloting extensively customised machines depending on their function. The Armageddon 2089 roleplaying game presents the most dynamic and detailed d20 System rules yet released¸ modelling real world physics with incredible fidelity. Real world scientists and high technologists were consulted during the creation of these rules¸ ensuring the technical and political extrapolation are as realistic as possible¸ making Armageddon 2089 the game for roleplayers looking for hyper-reality in their campaigns. As well as providing everything players need to simulate combat between WarMeks¸ Armageddon 2089 is a complete setting in which to base many scenarios. Supported as only Mongoose Publishing can do so¸ the Armageddon 2089 line features many new supplements and sourcebooks¸ including Armoured Companies¸ bringing the power of tanks and artillery to the game¸ and the Soldier's Companion¸ introducing new rules and scenarios for special forces and espionage squads. The High Frontier expands the war far beyond the boundaries of Earth itself¸ to colonies and outposts throughout the Solar System. Add to this a range of forthcoming novels detailing the major battles and events of the war¸ and Armageddon 2089 becomes one of the most complete settings available in the roleplaying market.
