The Warring Factions


Petramco International Security Service Overseas Force


Security troops working for Petramco International, a Multinational Company with headquarters in the USA. Petramco has a number of legitimate commercial interests in the area, it dominates the local fruit industry for example, but it is also known to be involved in the JuJuJuice drugs trade and in diamond smuggling. It was biotechnologists working for Petramco who genetically engineered the yeast that made the production of JuJuJuice a commercial proposition.

Petramco troops are generally of good quality though the PISSOF leadership keeps changing as the company's Head of Security gets fired every time they lose a battle. Petramco have got through five security chiefs in as many months and each new appointee seems to change the whole command structure of the force. Some Petramco executives are known to be in favour of disbanding the whole organisation and reverting to a situation where they rely on friendly local factions, such as the ZITS, to fight for their interests in the Ztumsia/Setumsia area.
