Re: Own Boardgame: Operation C - Furious battle in prehistoric times


We are still working on the translation.

For a few days I send the game to our german Fantasy Flight Games Publisher the Heidelberger Spieleverlag.

But with the finish translation we will searching for an international publisher or maybe do an kickstarter.

But back to the UNDEAD-Topic:
Maybe its the name of the expansion CITY OF THE DEAD. By the name you already think of Zombies. If you have any ideas for a new name of the expansion, please post it. The expansion is still not final and the rulebook is finished to 50%. So if you have a cool name than let it hear!

If you want to support us than like us on facebook:

Re: Own Boardgame: Operation C - Furious battle in prehistoric times


Here are a couple (or so) suggestions:

CITY OF DREAD

CITY OF TERROR!

CITY OF HORRORS

CITY OF THE LOST

TWISTED CITY

INFECTED CITY

CITY OF MADNESS

I suppose the list could go on and on. I just mention these as a means to help in the process. emoticon


By the way, is this game going to be officially published by FFG? IF so, they have very strict policy(ies) concerning keeping things quiet (not sharing with the public) during the development process. I just don't want you to get into any trouble. emoticon

At this moment the game will be only rate by the our german pulisher and not by FFG.

I think only if they will release the game, than it could that the game falls under this policy. But until this happens, i will share all news and ideas with the community.

For the rename of the expansion i think of
The heart of darkness

Reminds me of the classic book by Joseph Conrad, which has a few connections to the story of this expansion.

FFG on the other hand have been behind a number of truly awesome games.

looking forward to it!

(now to forward to my German speaking friends to
1 like it
2 translate it for me!)

most of my posts may run into essay length. I find that for a lot of queries/feedback context is important and that is why this happens more often than not.

have a great day :D

That's certainly true. I have lately become pleasantly acquainted with the STAR WARS LCG game.

Concerning the hush-hush nature of their game development process, I have had some contact with a couple people who used to work for FFG. They jokingly said that they wondered when someone might be coming for their families because they had talked about their work.

Re: Own Boardgame: Operation C - Furious battle in prehistoric times


Good News: Here is the translation of the first Chapter: Introduction
--Special Thanx to Joe Kundlak for the Translation--


Chapter 1: Introduction
"Damn!" Dylan Palmer swore. It felt like the end of the world. The Huey chopper started to turn around its axis. The world before Dylan's eyes started spinning. A hard blow knocked the chopper on its side. Dylan now saw the tidal waves hitting the cliffs directly below him. 80 meters below.
 
With a new blow Dylan realized that the chopper was sliding over the cliff edge. He glanced quickly to the side. He could not see the 9-meter-long Carnotaurus, but he could hear it. The beast roared so loud that Dylan's ears literally hurt. Dylan unfastened his seat belt and fell downwards hard. He now lay in an upside-down cockpit and considered his next move. Again a blow. Dylan had to find a way out and fast! His eyes fell upon a box with the label "Emergency gear".

The Carnotaurus growled and pushed his head against the wreckage, which once was a chopper. A couple inches, then it would fall down. The enormous dinosaur slanted its head sideways. Some of the wires on his temple modules were loose. Green pus and blood dripped from his wound. The nanomodule on the back of the beast smoked slightly. The metallic legs hissed constantly. Then he attacked.

Dylan climbed as fast as he could down the cliff. He found a rope with a hook in the emergency box. He fastened the hook on the Huey and climbed on it out of the chopper. 10 meters below he saw a hole. It was the ventilation shaft he saw from the chopper before. He glanced towards the edge of the cliff. The chopper was still being pushed towards the depth below. Only 5 meters now...

The last blow finally sent the chopper falling down over the edge. No, no, no, thought Dylan and skidded down the rope. Despite his gloves he felt the heat from the friction rising rapidly. His hands began to hurt severely. Above Dylan darkness was approaching as the chopper fell towards him. The rope was suddenly loose in his hands.

Dylan started to fall but managed to quickly snatch a protruding rock. The chopper above him hit the cliff, spun mid-air and continued falling down the cliffside. Its nose came directly at Dylan. In the last moment Dylan managed to climb into the hole. The Huey missed him by a mere inch. Not more than 5 seconds later Dylan heard a loud crash below and he peeked down. The chopper crushed down on the rocks and slid into the sea. Above the triumphant roar of the Carnotaurus was heard. Dylan leaned against the damp wall covered with moss and drew a deep breath. He hated this Carnotaurus. This was the second vehicle the beast managed to destroy.


The year 2051
The world is standing on the edge of the abyss. Global warming approached a critical point. Massive catastrophes destroyed large parts of the world. Due to resource limitations countries and states constantly engage in local conflicts. The conduct of war changed throughout the years and thanks to genetic engineering a powerful technique was developed: the Degeneration.

Researched by Dr. Keith Templer, the scientist from the biology department of the BioGen corporation, this technique was based on certain cultivated viruses, which were harvested from wild organisms, especially bacteria. These bacteria continually lost more and more of their genetic information, until they became cell parasites, dependent on host cells providing them with the necessary functions. The parasite that was cultivated in this way was named the "Chirurg" and it developed astounding abilities.

The C Project
The parasite overtook the host body and started to mutate the RNA and DNA molecule sequences of its host cells. These self-dependent nucleic acids adopted the genetic material of the parasite and started to proliferate independently from the host cell genome or the RNA. Through this ability of reproduction and the capability to adjust to the host body Project C became one of the most sought-after biological weapons in the world. Whatever body the parasite infiltrated, the effects stayed the same. Through the mutation of the genome the parasite reproduced certain cells to make the host body stronger and more resistant. On the other hand the animal hosts rarely survived the mutation.

After further research scientists found out that the development of the Chirurg-parasite could be controlled. This could be done by adding certain DNA-strings from the Sauropsida family. The effect was amazing. Project C decoded the cells and "imprinted" them with its own "code". Through this amazing ability the scientists were able to literally reprogram all cells in the host's body. The road to a functional biological weapon was paved.

Change of the war
BioGen developed certain bioweapon types. From light infantry weapons to heavy armored bioweapons. Thanks to the special ability of Project C to develop a collective consciousness new Alpha-weapons were developed, which, driven by nanoimplants, allowed the fighting troops to perform "surgical" strikes with precision and without much of the risk usually associated with fighting. The conduct of war rapidly changed. Instead of a regular army the smaller states and countries started to depend on bioweapon units. More and more combat assignments were performed with bioweapons generated from Project C. Keith Templer secured the presidency of BioGen as its CEO in 2060. Through manipulation the corporation secured contracts for billions.

In 2068 an effort was made to ban all fighting units based on the Project C weapons worldwide. BioGen shares threatened to sink down the hole and the corporation, one of the mightiest in the world, was subjected to the crossfire of criticism. Keith Templer, still its CEO, started a massive campaign for continuation of Project C. Through immense bribes to politicians and other powerful contacts in separatist groups Templer managed to convince the masses that biological weapons were indispensable in modern war. Why should countries lose their own soldiers in useless house-fighting against terrorists? Why pay billions for tanks, weapons and matériel? When the dust slowly settled down, Templer started a new development series. The new chief of the biology department, Dr. Aran Jaeger, made a stunning discovery for the science world, which would dismiss any resistance from the political circles and the world itself.

The Phoenix
Jaeger found out that through the cell processes of Project C a massive amount of energy was generated, the so-called Metaenergy. Immediately new research was conducted and after first successes a Metaenergy reactor prototype was built. In this reactor gigantic cell processes were generated from the Chirurg Prime parasites. The energy generated as the byproduct was clean and had no effect on the environment. But no one except the most involved BioGen employees knew anything about the secret of this energy.

Until 2081 two new research facilities were built. Phobos, located in the Rocky Mountains, and Jörmungandr in Canada. In 2085 the construction of a new research facility began, the Chimera-2. This facility consisted not only of huge research laboratories, located on the Aruga archipelago, but also of a huge fabrication plant, in which new Project C weapons were constructed. The military facility Titan was a secret project and no one knew what was produced there. To keep everything secret the corporation built a city named Howell on the archipelago. With more than five thousand inhabitants the city was a masterpiece of effective architecture. Dr. Aran Jaeger himself lead the research in Chimera-2. Through the usage of the Chirurg Prime parasite entirely new application possibilities emerged. Thus the energy, combined with suitable material, could be used to create a space warp opening. As this was discovered, the corporation began to construct a particle accelerator on Aruga, in the hopes of opening a door, which would allow passage through space and time. In 2089 the first experiment was started. Creation of the space warp. But something went wrong. Shortly before the experiment started a computer-generated message arrived to the BioGen headquarters in New York:

Emergency report - Code red - Accident in research station "Chimera-2". . - Security system outage - Life support system outage. . - Reactor outage - Stability system breakdown. . - Contact to "Chimera-2" lost - Localization system online. . - Research facility "Chimera-2" not found - Military facility "Titan" not found - Howell city not found - Analysis running.

The Aruga archipelago disappeared in a time warp. Further analysis revealed that the time warp formed a tunnel spanning 65 million years into the past. Thanks to an artificial bridge, created with Metaenergy in Phobos, BioGen created three rescue teams and sent them to the past. The mission: evacuate the survivors and rescue all available data.

my German speaking friend has liked your page on FB, I have too but as I don't speak/read German I can only see pretty pictures and try to interpret from those what is going on.
