The Enemy Of My Enemy Is Still My Enemy

The New Earth Government. A place of progress and hope. A world carefully crafted by the powers that be to give lives to those it protects. The last hope of humanity in a time when it seems as if our light will be extinguished forever. The Migou. Beings who have always viewed the Earth as their backyard, to be used and abused as they will. Creatures caught unaware by what we have become and intent on destroying us because of it.

Enemies bound to the mortal coil, perhaps soon to be consumed by it – and each other.

Live in the world of the NEG, exploring society from the streets on up. Walk within the worlds of politics, religion, and mainstream society. Discover what the growing identity of the Nazzadi is all about. Explore the dark end of the streets where vice and crime dwell. Or discover the world of the alien insects from Pluto and even explore it as one of them. Peel back the veil and see the Migou for what they truly are – and maybe even admire them for it.

Nowhere else will you find a setting like this.

Inside this book you will find:

  • seven pieces of provocative short fiction to help portray the feel of the setting.
  • a detailed exploration of the New Earth Government, to give you a real idea of what it’s like to live in the setting on a daily basis.
  • explore in detail why the Nazzadi were made, who they thought they were, and who they have become.
  • new Character options, including new Nazzadi Qualities and playing Nephilim handlers.
  • an introduction to new technology, including new mecha tech, four new mecha, ten new vehicles of war, and the mysterious Nephilim.
  • a detailed exploration of the hidden world of the Migou, pulling back the curtain to show you who they really are and why they’re here.
  • full rules for designing Migou Characters and telling Migou stories, including two Migou races and six professions.
  • a ready-to-play starter story for Migou games, as well as several Migou story hooks, to start you off right away.
