A lot can change in a month. San Lazaro was a cutting-edge, popular city, beloved for its prime West Coast location and diverse population.The epicenter of a cybernetics tech revolution that changed the facts of life for everyone on the planet, San Lazaro was an untouchable beacon of the future. . But even San Lazaro could not withstand the fury of nature. With an unusually mild winter, the year 2050 was the perfect breeding ground for a viral menace, the latest strain of the avian flu.. Initial attempts to eradicate the outbreak resulted in a startling discovery; the strain rapidly mutated to counter and overwhelm any attempt to pacify it. Rapidly spreading from its Asian origin, the mysterious virus slammed into the United States within a week. When the first cases emerged and it became evident the end was beginning, the media dubbed the day of infection Day 0. Any hope of containing the outbreak was drowned in a sea of infection and death.

When the once utopian San Lazaro was struck by the outbreak, quarantine embraced city immediately. Barricades and armed soldiers divided the city into isolated sectors. Civilians had no choice but to go about their lives and hope they would be spared from the infection. In the end, efforts to contain the outbreak were as useless as the attempts to pacify the rising numbers of insane, bloodthirsty murderers in the city. Dubbed ‘Cyber-Memetic Sociopaths’ by the media, these ‘CyMS’ had lost all sense of purpose and reason, spreading across the city in a wave of mindless, indiscriminate bloodshed..  A mere two weeks into the outbreak, San Lazaro was overrun by untreatable infection and murderous CyMS. The city government, convinced that any attempt at containment was a lost cause, abandoned those still trapped in San Lazaro to gruesome fates.

Four weeks have passed since the Outbreak, and San Lazaro is little more than a lawless hellhole.  Many survivors have banded together into various factions to protect themselves, while existing gangs have capitalized on the power vacuum and began consolidating their power within the city.  The CyMS have grown into a constant threat on the streets, sowing fear and terror across the town. In this conflicted hellscape, your only chance of survival and escape is to join a faction powerful enough to dominate the foes that stand in your way.

Omicron Protocol is an intra-apocalyptic, arena combat miniatures game that is fun for all tabletop gamers. It is the year 2050, and rival factions are fighting for the resources they need to survive in their quarantined and locked-down city, San Lazaro.

Every character in the game is represented by a detailed 32mm miniature, possessing their own rich history and personality, as well as powerful cybernetic abilities! 2 thru 4 players can battle it out on a 2’x2’ hex-grid board through various scenarios, to see which faction will and survive and escape!  Omicron Protocol is filled with innovative and unique game mechanics that make every experience thrilling and exciting, ushering players deeper and deeper into the gripping lore of both San Lazaro and those who fight in its now-dangerous streets.
