In the wake of the Fourth Faction Wars, the commanders and strategists of the great clans saw there was a tactical need for a middle range mecha with a focus on Ice weaponry.

The marauding forces of Xerxes reminded everyone that Drotcha is still very much a threat, and the need was urgent. Not wanting to wade through the bureaucratic red tape for years to get such a project completed and with the thorough embarrassment of the house of Strategoi forces at the hands of “mercenaries and bandits” the major powers of the galaxy were reluctant to further arm forces not under their control.

Several of the great warrior clans took matters into their own hands and commissioned a new design themselves. Turning to Asgard Heavy, manufacturers of excavating and drilling equipment designed for use in deep space or hostile atmosphere worlds, they produced the Warg.

Starting with the model 17-g-4 chassis, the engineers installed self-sealing internal joint bracing and strengthened the limbs with Cogwerk's combat alloy struts. This gave the chassis much greater flexibility while maintaining torsion resistance and preventing shearing and joint failures. The Chassis is easily modified for new missions keeping the down time between missions at a minimum.

The Electronics suite of the Warg is cutting-edge. The offensive electronics package makes good use of Slow and Freeze effects. Interestingly, these are not a side effect of cold, but instead are EMP bursts, radio jamming, computer hacks and other electronic warfare applications. Anti- A.I. viruses, reportedly developed to combat Artificial Mind, were readily supplied by the commanders of nearly every clan in the known galaxy. These give the Warg's computers a slim chance to override and shut down an enemy mech.

This margin increases significantly as the Warg is upgraded. The A.I. working hand in hand with the automated system feeds false commands and dummy sub-routines into the enemy system slowing reaction time and firing rate. Several custom upgrade ports are provided, up to four when fully upgraded, allowing commanders to tailor the unit in a variety of configurations for mission specific roles or pilot preference. At higher upgrade levels, the heavier niode matrices begin to generate double powered overloads to an already deadly salvo.

The power plant at the core of the Warg is massive and difficult to service, yet nevertheless a perfect match for the Warg. Able to meet the heavy power demands of targeting computers, motive systems and weapons fire without spiking the firewalls and burning out critical systems, the Asgard Fusion-tek is more than adequate for the Warg's power requirements. The Warg has average speed and the massive Fusion-tek leaves little room for upgrade modules and customization, but a savvy pilot will find a way to eke out every bit of speed the Warg is capable of. The few custom upgrade slots available allow the Warg to keep pace with its smaller cousins and easily outmaneuver any large threats.

Defensively the Warg breaks new ground for medium-range mecha. Fire, Laser and Trample Shields are included in the defensive package, making the Warg the lightest mecha to have self-generated protection of this type. Solid shielding is generated by emitter pods strategically placed all along the framework ensuring there are no gaps or vulnerabilities, and up to three modules of custom shielding can be added to suit the mission or pilot's taste as the unit is upgraded.

Although the Warg was still a fairly new design during the early 3300’s, the period of technological cooperation known as the Cogwerk Renaissance gave the engineers at Asgard Heavy some new ideas to refine their machine. Several electronic improvements were made to the design, giving additional power to the anti-mech programming for the A.I. and new targeting programs to boost the striking power of the weapon systems. The high-end shielding systems were improved as well to enhance the durability of the already sturdy design.

Legendary Pilots

  • Don Lindley

    Don Lindley

    Don Lindley, also known as “Shadow”, has earned the respect of friends and enemies alike after pouring abundant blood and ferrite into the battlefields, both that of his own and of the hundreds of opponents while defending the Bunny flag with pride and fury.

    But he acquired another call sign, "The Wolf," after requisitioning an abundant cache of Wargs, stolen from Asgard Heavy Ltd's factories by pirates during the confusion created by the invasion of the League of Ages led by Xerxes the Great. “A wolf in rabbit fur”, some of his comrades call him.

    Remarkably, before the Warg was officially released, Lindley “Shadow Wolf” already had his own pack, a full squad of Wargs that he upgraded and mastered through frantic training on Pirate Moon. There he spread panic among the pie rats, leading his pack of Wargs through the narrow canyons and passages of the moon. This real training has made him a fearsome pilot in the 55-ton circuits, tournaments, and live combat in small environments.
