Flashpoint Amber – The Trap is Sprung!

The powers of the Kurak Alliance have begun their grand assault on the Amber System, but their Zenian League enemies have not been idle. Indeed, the conflict which now consumes the Amber System has come about at least partially by Zenian design! Having sown a web of lies about the secrets of the Amber System, Zenian Commanders now watch with amusement as their Kurak enemies open a new front in the galactic war. As equally frustrated as their enemies by the stalemate in the Storm Zone, the Zenian member races have made strenuous efforts to ensure that they will be well positioned to fight...

The Helix Effect

A game of Firestorm Planetfall is played using what we call Battle Groups. In turn a Battle Group is made up of Helixes, and at the heart of each Battle Group is what we call the CORE HELIX. It is this Core Helix that you can then wrap other Helixes around, and these are known as Attached Helixes. Different Attached Helixes include: • Aerial Helix • Heavy Helix • Assault Helix • Recon Helix • Strike Helix (the Helix which will contain Leviathans) • Support Helix A Basic Battle Group is composed of ONE Core Helix to which a Commander can attach up to SIX Attached Helixes,...
