This is especially evident when the Covenant of Antarctica’s forces are involved, with the ability to traverse vast distances by the power of trans-location, and a network of hidden military bases spanning the globe. One of the Covenant’s main objectives in the World War is to halt the development of dangerous technologies by nations searching for the ultimate weapons to turn upon their enemies. One of the most dangerous individuals reviled by leaders of the Covenant is Markov, traitor to the Covenant and now...

He needed to get to Sergeant Bailey and the Ack Ack gunners quickly and traversing the ladders and gangways to the lower decks was not an option. “Marcus,” Francis called as he turned casually to his PARA troop corporal. “Wait here till I get back will you, we’ve got a fight on our hands I’d wager.” Francis engaged his pack by turning the rotating brass disk on the white leather chest harness.

This short story was submitted to us by Featured Author Luke Loseby, a Dystopian Wars gamer who was clearly inspired to create this entertaining story. We hope you enjoy reading his work as much as we did: Francis stepped onto the bridge of the HMS Deliverer and instantly felt like the outsider, his scarlet red coat contrasting starkly against the deep blue of the other officers present. The two officers closest to the door turned briefly as he entered and then quickly returned their attention to the Captain who continued apace explaining the actions of the last few days, “Needless to...
