Marauders
Setting: Warfleets: FTL
Games: Warfleets: FTL
Species: Mixed
Version: v1.5

The Marauders are a faction from the Warfleets: FTL universe. As of December 12, 2023, the Warfleets: FTL setting was integrated into the Grimdark Future setting and the original Warfleets: FTL factions were removed.

Background Story

The Marauders are bands of pirates, junkers and outcasts that roam the galaxy constantly looking for the next fleet that they can loot. Despite flying odd-looking ships made up of stolen parts, they are feared across by all factions because of their reckless and brutal strategies that seldom leave anyone alive.

Despite Marauder ships usually acting on their own and being generally unpleasant to cooperate with, in times of need they are surprisingly quick to get together and form dangerous fleets that can take on even the most technologically superior enemies.

If you see a Marauder ship in the distance you better start flying in the opposite direction, because they don’t often take hostages! They do, however, sometimes capture ships and demand they be bought back at a high price.

Legendary Fleets

  • Iron Behemoths - The Iron Behemoths are the true embodiment of the saying “bigger is better”, flying the biggest ships of all marauder fleets, featuring some of the most impressive custom rigs ever seen.
  • Crimson Vortex - The Crimson Vortex have a very interesting approach to warfare, loading their ships with tons of explosives and charging head first into enemies, hoping to destroy them when they inevitably blow up.
  • Morka’s Mob - Perhaps the most clever of all marauder fleets are Morka’s Mob, who attack empire ships to sell parts to the alliance, whilst also wrecking alliance ships on the way out to sell parts to the empire.

Play Style

In order to compensate for the lack of advanced technology, their scrap-made ships are built in the shape of battering rams, ready to shatter the enemy through direct impact. Once they have gotten into their face, they relentlessly unload all their munitions into the enemy at short-range, making for an extremely effective combo.

Miniatures

The marauders are a faction of scrappers and pirates that kind of bolt their ships together from parts they find. You can imagine them sort of like Mad Max in space, in that everything should look wildly put together, but more hard sci-fi.
