In partnership with Corvus Belli, we are pleased to invite you to join us in celebrating the launch of Third Offensive, the fourth book for Infinity the game by taking part in our Writing Contest of Infinity The Game.
Infinity is a miniatures wargame taking place against a near-future backdrop. It has a rich universe with a lot of potential, it is also part of the wargames that have invested in literature to enrich their universe and bring it closer to its players, as well as other enthusiasts.
On the other hand Aristeia! is a bloodsport, something in the style of the films like The Running Man by Stephen King or The Hunger Games, which is the most popular form of entertainment in The Human Sphere – a violent and very lucrative event, taking place in an arena known as a hexadome, where two groups of combatants (known as Aristos) compete to score more points and win the most support of sponsors.
As you know, at Wargarage.org, we are fans of reading, and this recently led us to write an article about miniature wargames with literature is published in the form of novels, comics, or graphic novels. Of course, Infinity has a place in this category, thanks to Outrage and the efforts regarding the background of the game.
Thinking about this, and inspired by the Nexus Challenge of our friends at La Cueva del Lobo, we wanted to make a writing contest for our audience and our friends at Corvus Belli liked the idea so much that they have offered us prize support to help with this endeavour.
Infinity is a miniature wargame that has a constantly evolving backstory, as we have seen in the campaign books made to supplement the game, such as the launch of Uprising, Operations Icestorm, Red Veil, and Coldfront as well as the Third Offensive, that something we love this because the game feels alive and we can influence the changes that have occurred in this universe through the reports made when playing the events alongside their annual Beasts of War Campaign that also dictates the backstory in interesting ways through the actions of the players.
One condition of this contest is that the story is framed within the Infinity Universe. If you are a player of the game, you will know that most of the background is disseminated within the game books, the Outrage manga, and more recently – the official Infinity Roleplaying Game by Modiphius Entertainment.
If you want to know a little more about the game as such, as well as the specialities of each faction, I recommend the article in the Dice Abide “Infinity. Which faction is for you?“
If you do not know anything about Infinity and you just want to write some awesome science-fiction – don’t worry – Corvus Belli offers a short summary on the official website of Infinity and some articles on their official blog , with enough content to have an idea of the universe and develop a story that fits into the vast tapestry that is the Human Sphere. If you would like to take part and don’t feel like you know enough about the universe, don’t be discouraged. Just read a bit of background information and let your imagination do the rest – we want to hear YOUR story.
Corvus Belli has kindly offered to provide prize support for this event. The prizes will be as follows:
