>HELLFIRE< is a wargame about space battles in the far future. It is a game that allows commanders to handle huge warships in newtonian space, with a variety of interlocking weapon systems. It is 'near future' technology - so no force shields, transporters, tractor beams or artifical gravity. It has a very 'military' feel to it. The game is built around teams of players, most of whom are single ship commanders. The fleet has a hierarchy, with admirals, squadron commanders etc. This is scenario specific, in that the exact rank structure will be determined for each game. Most players will be a captain or senior officer of a big ship. Players move their own models on the hex grid, under the supervision of Game Control, who has the final say in rule interpretation and operations.
