* ''MutantChronicles'' has several varieties. The Capitol Airborne Rangers are frontline assault infantry, who fly into zones the Air Force has just bombed, take strategic positions, and hold them until the Army arrives. Bauhaus has the Venusian Rangers, who are selected from the best Bauhaus has to offer, sent through a [[TheSpartanWay two-year program known as "The Forge"]], and are then thrust into any situation where failure simply is not an option.
