Take on the tight-fisted Human Federation as the Commander of a Pirate Fleet in Steel Shadows, the newest offering by Fair Weather Studios. With a rich history of stellar turn based-strategy, the developers are now allowing fans to jump into the role of rogues and pirates in this new game, centered in the universe of Ancient Frontier which was launched last year on Steam.
Set in the vast, war-ridden universe of Ancient Frontier, Steel Shadows sees players command a rag-tag fleet of pirates, outlaws, and scavengers to expand their network, obtain riches, and survive the pursuit of the Human Federation. Players do not need to own or have played Ancient Frontier to enjoy this new offering from Fair Weather Studios.
Play as Rogan Harker, a recently freed convict, who travels to the Frontier to find old friends and start a new life — But the overpowering Federation still controls most of the Frontier, and the new and budding Alliance is no fan of outlaws. Hated and feared, the pirate life is one of constant danger. Friends and allies are hard to find and harder still to keep. Beset on all sides can Rogan find fame and fortune with his fledgling pirate fleet?
