Hi all, I am in the process of designing a strategic card game set in a corporate world of the future. Here is a bit of info:-

The year is 3870 and humanity has reached into the unknown depths of space in a new era of exploration and commerce. Using quantum gates has allowed mankind’s influence to spread over two other solar systems. The Solar Union governs human space and most of its military might is busy aiding the colonisation and settlement of the Eden systems. The expansion has been lead by commerce and exploration and businesses have become major political forces. Though mankind is unified the larger corps are locked in an endless hidden war for resources/tech/personnel and good PR. The hidden war is waged by shadow armies of loyal employees and well paid mercenaries called sectors. Each sector is headed by an individual who forms a board of directors leading their units from the front or supporting them back at headquarters.

I am interested in people who would like to contribute to the fluff or have any advice about getting a card game into production. there are 8 corps in the sol system and i only have one designer/artist onboard at the moment so anyone with abit of artist flair should get in touch aswell.

Mutant Chronicals might be worth a look.

I disagree, there are similarities however Corp War is about multiple corporation's waging hidden war's across our solar system for tech influence and good PR. It is a gritty, hard boiled setting with no little green men. Take a look at the additional fluff and let me know what you think.

Hi Guy's,

Here's a bit more info about the corps in the sol system. At the end of each description is a pop culture reference to inspire some imagery in your think boxes

The Corp’s:

• TerraTech: The oldest corp in SolGov, TerraTech specialises in Terrafoming and building orbitals. They are renowned as natural explorers and hardy colonist’s. chuck norris
• Miners Union: Decendants of the miners revolt which lead to the first apocalypse, the miners union are based on mars and the remaining inner asteroid belt. Their influence spreads throughout SOL and miners union workers can be found working on contract for most other corps .there are no better miners.: total recall
• Ky ‘Usha Robotics: responsible for turning the tide against the horseman drones carrying out the 1st apocalypse. Robotics and cybernetics’ are this corps bag : cyber samurai
• Roscoe Ship Systems: Designers and builders of the finest ships and ship components. They also run the security contracts for most supply convoys. there are rumours that they are near to completing the first quantum engines: han solo
• Saturnian Trade Sphere: no one Knows how long the Trade Sphere has existed but they were formerly incorporated about 600 years ago. Made up of mafia families and space faring gypsies. Extremely good merchants: Godfather
• Galilean sovereignty: made up of the aristocracy of the four Galilean moons The Ionian Skylords, Europan Knights, Ganymeadian Militia and calistan sirens. Flash gordan
• Novacom: A fairly new and powerful Energy and communications giant. They have gate contract. They are sinister and scared by solar radiation: space vamps
• Pirates: though not a corp in their own right , groups of pirates strike convoys and corp facilities with impunity from hidden bases throughout the solar system and are a constant threat to commerce in the home system: orkish

P.s. sorry for all the spelling mistake's but i'm doing this on my I phone and i have freakishly large hands.
