A game set in the Transformers Universe using Cortex Prime

GMed by I.M.Goose

It is the year 2025, and the Autobots and Decepticons have signed a peace treaty after the end of the war on Earth with the loss of both factions' leaders. Megatron is believed to be dead and Optimus Prime has handed over the reins of command to Ultra Magnus and departed for stars unknown.

Of course such a peace is fragile at best and their are those on both sides who do not want the fighting to stop or have decided to make their own power plays, as well as threats from other races that threaten to disrupt the peace. To deal with these threats the Autobots and Decepticons have created a Joint Task Force to investigate and deal with them as necessary. Into this steps our heroes, a squad of JTF operatives.
