Celestian[edit]

Main article: celestian

Celestian tech uses ancient astral philosophy to harness the nobler parts of the psyche.

  • Units, mods and operations primarily buff friendlies, with limited direct damage capability.

While higher tier units in this technology deal psionic damage, Celestian units are more about utility than direct damage, so synergy with psionic weapons research is minor.

Promethean[edit]

Promethean technology is focused on purification through fire. It tends to be very direct and lacking in subtlety.

  • High Plasma damage
  • Protect from and cleanse debuffs

Promethean tech is broadly applicable and can combine well with almost any faction.

Psynumbra[edit]

Psynumbral technology weaponises the darkest reaches of the psyche, harnessing hatred for offense and fear and despair to disable enemies.

  • High psionic damage
  • Break morale and debuff enemies.

Psynumbral units deal heavy psionic damage, so they synergise greatly with factions that have access to psionic weapons research - the Syndicate and Kir'Ko.

Synthesis[edit]

Synthesis uses ubiquitous artificial intelligences and advanced hacking to enhance friendlies and hinder enemy mechanicals and cyborgs.

  • Network friendly troops together to apply battlefield-wide buffs.
  • Dominate enemy mechanicals and cyborgs with offensive debuffs.

Synthesis technology has excellent synergy with factions that widely employ cyborgs and mechanicals. Synthesis units also use Arc damage, so they benefit from a faction with access to Arc weapons research. Both of these conditions are filled perfectly by the Assembly. Predominately biological factions such as the Amazon and Kir'Ko will find Synthesis tech comparatively hard to employ.

Voidtech[edit]

Void technology is about the manipulation of space and time.

  • Facilitate movement of friendlies.
  • Debuff enemies and disrupt their positioning.

Void tech has minor synergy with factions that deal kinetic damage, but its focus on movement works well with most factions. The ability to move through obstacles is a particular boon to melee focused factions.

Xenoplague[edit]

Xenoplague technology uses the Alpha Strain infection to heal friendlies and horribly debilitate enemies, even re-purposing their biomass in to units for you after combat.

  • Xenoplague units are not built, but spawn and upgrade by infecting and killing biological and cyborg enemies in combat.
    • Killing an enemy that is afflicted with Parasitic Infestation will add points to a spawning pool that carries over between battles. When enough points are accrued they are used to spawn a new pustule or upgrade an existing Xenoplague unit to a higher tier.
  • Xenoplague operations and mods are very flexible and can heal, deal damage and afflict status effects on enemies.

Higher tier Xenoplague units deal biochemical damage, so synergise well with factions with biochemical weapons research - Kir'Ko and Amazon.

  • Bio-Spore Purification
  • Xeno Restoration Beam
“The Xenoplague is an organic machine. It need not be virulent. Our latest innovation demonstrates the virus’s propensity to heal damaged tissue and purify the body from harmful effects while it captures and reprograms the genetic attributes of its host.”

  • Plague Lord
“Legend states we killed our gods, replacing them with entertaining technologies. The gods, beholding their demise, planted doom within us: a seed called Hubris. Witnessing the creation of this abomination, I hear the dead gods laughing.”

  • Hyper-accelerate Evolution
  • Fungal Store Bomb
“Applying this serum to a Xenoplague Pustule will cause it to instantly evolve into a Destroyer. Pustules no longer need roam the countryside murdering people in order to evolve. Of course, the serum does require harvesting brain tissue from living donors.”
– Dr. Eliza R. Snowden, Kolobo Laboratories

  • Bio-Spore Hyper Aggression
  • Xeno Contaminant Strike
“We can hijack the plague strains to deliver behavior hormones to manipulate the minds of all organic life. Sure, we’ve mostly created hyper-aggressive subjects, but with more project funding we might discover how to pacify them.”

  • Call of the Plague
“Bloated pustules crawl across the hillsides of our quarantined land. Our screams for help summon bloated pustules to fight off our enemies. If I didn’t know better, I’d suspect they’re protecting us until they can turn our bodies into their food supply.”
– Professor Sandro “Cosmo” Welker, TBCU: Containment

  • Hyperstimulation Beam
“Yeah, so the nice folks in corporate marketing forced me to change the name of my invention to the ‘Hyperstimulation Beam’. I wanted to call it the ‘Coffee Beam’.”

“By unleashing the Omega Strain into the biome, all life is forced to make long-overdue choices. Food shortages and illness will do the work we’ve advocated all along. To survive, the weak will be purged and the strong will prevail.”
