'''VOR The Maelstrom''' is a miniatures combat tabletop game by Mike Nielsen, published in 2000 by FASA Corporation, months before it collapsed. A subscription was launched in 2010 for a new edition, but it failed, probably due to Mike Nielsen setting his goal too high.

The setting of VOR is the Maelstrom, which looks like a miniature galaxy orbiting a gigantic black hole, called the Maw or Vorack. Planets that cross the dimensional threshold around the Maelstrom are doomed to end in the Maw, so everybody tries to leave its homeworld, found colonies and, maybe, someday escape the Maelstrom. Earth is trapped in 2102.

* MagicVersusScience: completely averted. The Pharons are far and away the most advanced species in science and technology, being eons ahead of everyone else. They are also easily the best sorcerers/wizards too and can call upon their dark god and the power of the Maw itself. So developed is their magic and superscience that the Pharons are both MagicFromTechnology and MagiTek, with everyone else getting curbstomped by them in story-line and in-game. The Zhykees also use potent magic and better than human technology developed thru science, though in both fields they don't hold a candle to what the Pharons have.

* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: Earth in the Maelstrom is slowly cooling. Global climate has changed. Multiple hazards have sprouted everywhere. Growlers, fungi and Shards probes have landed to colonize some regions. [[ItGotWorse And this is just the beginning.]]
