The Maelstrom is a cosmic vortex of vast proportions, a realm where the laws of physics are warped and twisted into an obscene parody of reality. It exists only to consumer worlds. Engulfed in a swirling storm of chaos, planets are ripped asunder or fused into strange, alien landscapes. It is here where powerful forces clash in a never-ending fight to avoid extinction. Growlers, hulking beasts of pure aggression, thrive in this hostile environment. The mysterious Zykhee meld technology and supernatural power into the deadliest of martial arts. The Union forces of Earth rely on high-tech weaponry and well-trained soldiers, while their Neo-Soviet rivals send fierce hordes of infantry and genetic mutations against their foes. The inhabitants of these doomed worlds fight for a single goal -- survival. VOR: The Maelstrom is a game players delight featuring a fast-playing, detailed miniatures combat system; flexible mechanics allowing play with 6 to 100 figures per side; conversion rules for using any miniatures; profiles for nine of the most important races in the Maelstrom; basic force listings; and plastic templates.
