The world of Heavy Metal Thunder is a complicated network of political intrigue. Shadowy forces vie for dominance using covert methods, cultures built on propaganda, mind control programs, and outright violence. To keep all the data and rumors and misinformation straight, check out the ever-growing Metal Codex.
In the beginning of the Heavy Metal Thunder series, you play as a grunt with limited access to the “big picture” of the solar system’s political situation. As you grow in power and rise through the ranks of the Legion, you’ll gain a greater understanding of the web of power. In fact, when the powers behind the various thrones become obvious, you might even yearn for the “easy” days when you could simply point, shoot, and lay your life on the line for the Storm Lord with a (mostly) clear conscience.
