Plane Variants

Tier 1 (Common) Variants

  • Porky Pepper: Like a flying bonfire, lighting the heavens. Pepper went through 6 barrels of paint on this one.
  • Sulky Sow: When the academy recommends a recruit for flying a Hog, some take it the wrong way. Does it mean you excel at flying slow and getting shot? Of course not, but many pilots carry that doubt for years.
  • Piglet: Hogs have commonly been sold as military surplus for use as civilian transports, only to be recommissioned to aid the war effort. This one belonged to a traveling circus for 6 years. The odor of hay and manure lingers.
  • Zebra Pig: You can clean it up, put some color in its trail, spray it with some stripes, but it is still a Hog.

Tier 2 (Rare) Variants

  • Boar: An immense hulk composed mostly of armor and field generators. Shrugs off bullets as it barrels straight into the crossfire.
  • Glutton for Punishment: It takes a certain type to fly a plane designed to be pounded by enemy attacks. Sure, you say it's to protect your allies. Deep down though, a part of you likes it.
  • Mud Sow: Never wrestle with The Mud Sow. You'll both get filthy, but the sow will enjoy it.

Tier 3 (Epic) Variants

  • Ghost Hog: The Order of St. Avem trained their nuns in the forbidden arts of politics, seduction and assassination. After the purge, only their Ghosts remained.
  • The Goodly Aesthetic: When you can purchase or sell status, you demonstrate the true values inherent to capitalistic society: The ultimate worth of an individual depends entirely on whether or not they are rich. Such seductively reductive systems devalue us all.
  • Snow Hog: A heart beats hot blood below thick layers of fat and fur, staving off the cold. Trudging past frozen corpses of those too skinny for this climate.
  • The Ancient Red: All of the intelligent species have a creation myth involving crimson water. In both the Aves and Mammalia archeo-cultural branches, recorded narratives tell of heroes drawn into the ruby depths, usually by black cords or tentacles. And they emerge filled with light.
