The Swarm of War
is a Warhammer 40,000
/ Starcraft Crossover
written by VexMaster
. It tells the story of James Malcolm Raynor, a nerd with knowledge of both universes killed by a car… and reincarnated as a Zerg Larva on the fallen Aiur. The guy morphs to a Drone… then a Hatchery… then a Hive Cluster… and just as he’s ready to take over after Kerrigan’s depowerment… the Xel’Naga artifact transports him elsewhere. From that moment, James is no more. There is a new Overmind. And that Overmind lands on a new planet. A planet just in the middle of a Warp Storm. Well, time to rebuild… and consume.
The first story arc – the first 40 chapters – is about the Overmind taking over the planet. The second arc – finished in summer 2014 – is about the Swarm testing itself against future enemies on a remote planet, opposed by the Imperium, the Eldar, the Chaos… and Captain Titus
As of early 2015, the story is in the process of being betaed, but is a very enjoyable one even without it.
