The action-packed world of 365 Infantry is one so loaded with tales to be told, that one storyline just isn’t enough. That’s why there are five main narrative threads in this series, and a special sixth column in the form of an audio adventure. In this post, we shall outline these branches, so you have a better idea of what is to come in each seasonal issue.
I. The War
In their on-going fight against the brutal forces of Haven, the 365th Infantry finds itself populated with an eclectic bunch of characters. Emerging from the pack is one Moto Corp member, the tan wolf Gibson. Once a nameless and faceless citizen of Haven, now a sharp, steadfast soldier, armed with his twin Colt peacemakers, and his darksome motorcycle “Exciter.” With his lover by his side and the support of top brass, Gibson and his fellow soldiers take the fight to the computerized villainess A.C.E.S., one battle at a time. They square off against a wealth of experimental war machines and dastardly schemes, as well as the menaces populating the wildest corners of the Wastelands.
II. The Hunt
Once a vagabond, now a huntress with a primal fire lit within. White Wasteland dweller Valentina unites a small team in service to a harrowing goal: to find and destroy the mysterious “Colosseum,” a gladiatorial arena transformed into a bizarre psychological torture scheme, buried deep within the heart of Haven. With its true purpose and exact location unknown, the team hunt for clues as to its whereabouts. On their way, they find themselves righting the wrongs committed against the innocent and fighting off the lingering effects of the Colosseum’s horrible ways.
III. The Urban Avenger
There ain’t nothing a gal like her can’t solve with a bullet and her Bug. The dark gray inner-city vigilante Lita is a figure that gives the residents of Haven hope, and the authoritarian law enforcement of A.C.E.S. headaches. Armed with a wicked arsenal and her blood-red Beetle, the wild-eyed urban warrior takes to the streets by night, flooring her way through the state-sponsored scum of her time, and squeezing off a few rounds to finish the job. While prone to getting into incredibly tough situations, she’s just as easily adept at finding a way out of them. With connections to the Resistance, she proves an immeasurable asset in the on-going fight for freedom.
IV. The Speedfreak Files
With the Resistance fighting on the front lines against invading forces, it is up to the semi-decentralized Hell Patrol to put a stop to crime in the Wastelands. Their mission: bringing ne’er-do-wells to justice as best they can, however they can. One of the most intrepid, ruthless, and hellraising of these officers is the black wolf Nic “Speedfreak” Ridgefield, living out his days before joining the Resistance. He and his two fellow officers (and bandmates) take down the evildoers in between gigs at their favorite bar. Ridgefield tells all in tales of slaying by day and rocking by night.
V. Tales from the Front Lines
Whether they walk the cold streets of the dystopic utopia or bomb around in the desert plains beyond, the common man and their rides often find themselves in just as much excitement as any soldier. Straight from the horse’s mouth, hear all of the wild tales of crime, romance, and adventure from across the four corners of what remains of the world.
VI. Alan Firedale: Desert Delinquent
When tyrants send their armies of malcontent creations to ruthlessly slaughter innocent desert-dwellers in the name of expanding control, there’s one hound and his marvelous machine there to stop them dead in their tracks.
Alan Firedale is a loner, a young red wolf who cruises down the highway in his high-tech, affectionate automobile Golden Cloud, and every path he crosses leads to a new adventure, a new friend, and a deadly plot that always leaves lives hanging in the balance, and the maleficent General Langdon somewhere in the shadows, pulling the strings.
Inspired by classic radio dramas in the vein of The Green Hornet and The Shadow, as well as primetime cult classic Knight Rider, this audiobook drama is a work of in-world fiction, a series enjoyed by residents of the Wasteland young and old with its charming hero, lovable automotive sidekick, and a world of adventure as vivid as the mind makes it. It is exclusively available to paid subscribers for as little as $5/Month.
Electric thrills and harrowing tales await in this expansive approach to anthologized storytelling, with something for everyone here in 365 Infantry
