WARS was a trading card game published by Decipher, Inc., taking the place of the Star Wars Customizable Card Game after Lucasfilm awarded the license to Wizards of the Coast. In 2010, Grail Quest Books began publishing a series of licensed works. In 2019, that license was awarded to Arcbeatle Press, with more titles forthcoming. The following are titles as published under Grail Quest Books.
Featuring popular characters, locations, and tech from Decipher Inc.’s WARS™ trading card game, This trilogy collection of novellas detail events from the WARS™ universe in the 24th century leading up to the largest battle humans have ever experienced–THE BATTLE OF PHOBOS.
Featuring three novellas covering three different factions within the WARS setting, the following is the synopsis from my included novella, Firefight at Overwatch Command:
The Mavericks: One family is already good as gone, and Jack Wilgress will be damned if he loses another. He will have to face an old Earther nemesis if he wants to preserve his Maverick ‘family’. But is he willing to lose a piece of his priceless freedom and be dragged into the brewing system-wide conflict?

What is Jack to do: The Cartel wants him – The Hellcats won’t hear him – autonomy eludes him – and the one planet in the universe he’s trying to escape needs is blackmailing him…

Grail Quest Books also published illustrated and annotated versions of some of the novellas. Here is the link for my individual novella. The interior illustrations by Bryan Hickey are terrific; here’s hoping that some better cover art will be used for any future reprintings.
