Overview

Contents

Rogue Arachnos is an enemy faction. They are commonly found in Warburg. Established as a splinter faction of Arachnos, they are actively opposed to the "softly, softly" approach taken by Lord Recluse, and support Marshal Blitz. Given the threat that the rockets of Warburg present to the world, the Rogue Arachnos faction seek to use them to their full capabilities as weapons. As a result, members of Arachnos are forced to choose: to support Lord Recluse and resist launching the rockets and thus potentially plunging the world in to thermonuclear war, or to use them as the threat and leverage they are to bend the world to the will of Marshall Blitz?
