One of Skirmisher’s most innovative new publications is USSMC FM 7-22: Space Boarding Operations, scheduled for release in spring 2007 and designed to read like an actual U.S. Space Marine Corps field manual devoted to boarding hostile spacecraft in 2089. Its author, Lt. Col. Oliver Cass, is an active-duty U.S. Army officer experienced in both real-world operations and manual writing.
USSMC FM 7-22 is also the official publication of TerrorWerks, a heart-pounding live-action roleplaying experience that will debut at the Origins game show in July 2007. It is being organized by the venerable PST Productions — one of the longest-operating and most successful Cthulhu Live production groups — and MindGame Productions, a live-action gaming company that runs the largest Airsoft events on the East Coast. TerrorWerks players will assume the roles of U.S. Space Marines, civilian engineers, and MineraTek executives thrust into the heart of an orbiting refinery that is being ravaged by an unknown alien horror. Using their wits, skills, and an arsenal of fully-automatic Airsoft weapons, the Marines will battle their way through the station, racing against the clock to save themselves and any survivors. Along the way, the players will search for clues to the identity and origins of the horrors that strike out of the darkness.
