Nuke it From Orbit pays homage to our favorite 80's/90's sci-fi action movies and games while offering a unique setting to explore, build, politic, and hunt bugs. NiFO allows groups to focus campaigns on the aspects of fun they crave, and ignore the stuff they don't care about.
NiFO provides casual mechanics for story-focused players, but also offers advanced mechanics with detailed 4X options.
The Plague has fractured the Helian Union's power, causing struggles in an otherwise stable government for the first time in centuries. Independent factions and greedy corporations have risen through the cracks, taking advantage of the instability and forming power blocs of their own.
If that wasn't enough, Alpha Centauri is infested by Host, a bug-like species that decimates human colonies.
Generate encounters from failing equipment to marauding pirates. The Vast is appropriately named, and enterprising (or desperate) explorers can risk everything to discover new planets, or tangle with the devils they know within known routes.
From asteroid mining facilities to newly terraformed planets, humanity is constantly expanding. Build custom structures, manage squads of workers, and harvest resources to build your colony's wealth.
Technology advancements and political acumen are tools of the powerful. Establish your power base as a Helian Union Advocate, a Corporate Executive, or an independent faction. The Plague has caused logistical nightmares for the Union, which in turn has provided opportunities for the ambitious.
Tactical choices, weapon customization, and an Action Point system offer strategic flexibility. Fight as a unit of heroes, or train up an army to fight all-out wars.
