Sierra Six, Cindering Peaks

The initial entry wasn't the cleanest the Xahians had ever done, and the language across the comms reflected that. Tomas watched in a professional detached view as the unfortunate first person to enter was taken down and dragged away by the things that were clearly waiting for them inside. First Squad took that loss with more personal affront that Tomas liked to see from Xahian Warriors; with various battlecries, the squad peppered the room with hundreds of flechette rounds, with mixed success against their foe. Clearly, to establish a beachhead, a more forceful beginning was required.

"Pull back," Tomas ordered and gestured to the two Umka armoured Warriors with the Arktos cannons. As the squads cleared themselves from the entrance, the two rotary cannons cycled up and opened fire on the building before them.

Whereas the basic rifle fired a depleted uranium flechette at a reasonable rate, the Arktos cannons turned that dial up to 11, firing around 10,000 DU rounds per minute. Less than 20 seconds later and the two cannons ceased, followed by four quick rounds from the autocannons, just in case.

Tomas wasn't sure if that'd be enough to clear the initial rooms, but he signalled the first squad to re-enter, although perhaps being a bit more cautious.

Sierra Six | Cindering Peaks

The Team runs out of their last building assigned, and they hear a large amount of gunfire from where the Xahians were dropping, the entire team turns to face the Xahians. Corporal Johnson stares at the Xahians as they use two rotary cannons and an autocannon to clear a room, he looks back to the group and says "they are obviously compensating for something." And walks back to where the dropship was, along with the rest of the Section. As they are approaching the gunship the Corporal looks down at his grenade holders, noticing one is missing he says "Oh shoot, I'm missing the one set for 10 minutes" Almost just as he says "minutes" The Building they just finished clearing explodes in a massive explosion. "I may have set it to full power also." he, and the rest of the section board the Dropship, and prepare to leave.

Sierra Six, Cindering Peaks

The ghoul packs in the south were confound by the towering forms that confronted them. The huge, octopedal chittering masses were so far removed from anything that was humanoid that for the moment the undead considered them vehicles. With that understanding came all the intuitive implications of fighting vehicles - which, in the case of the Oizys , was not necessarily, wrong either. Indeed, their radial symmetry provided detection capabilities similar to omnidirectional sensors, their speed and strength matched that of mechanical war machines and their strange hydrostatic nervous system made ghoul control chip incompatible. So far as the ghouls were concerned, the ozyis were just unmanned ground vehicles.

Kinetic slugs ripped into the Ellian structures, holing the solid slabs of plasteel like bullets impacting glass. The ghouls go to ground, fattening themselves against the floor to avoid the heavy weapons fire. The shots do produce valuable material though, exposing the electronics embedded within the walls of Ellian buildings - these will surely come in handy for replenishing nanite reserves after the battle.

The Oizys smashed their way through the comparatively narrow doorways, battering down the walls and dislodging the door frames. The ghouls inside, were they able bodied, fled as the Phonotaxis clansmen spilled into the single storey building, having witnessed how easily they put down their packmates. Those too damaged to move quickly were assigned the unenviable task of delaying the tentacled monstrosities and found themselves quickly torn apart by blade and claw.

A ghoul who had been cut in half at the hip and reduced to crawling manage to strike one of the attendants with his claws, tearing a long gash in the environment suit, but unable to penerate the thick Oizys exoskeleton from his disadvantageous position on the ground. The Oizys brought a powerful limb down on his head in retaliation and smashed his skull open. 9503026-Combat-Engineer and 4933073-Reconitor faired even better as the only occupants of their building were two damaged ghouls that simply melted away under the heat of the micro-fission beams. The lasers had also melted some parts of the walls and the ceiling sagged slightly to the far side as the plasttel resolidified.

6206614's situation was more dire. Whether by choice or by chance, the Barracks Mastery ended up facing the strongest opposition of the three groups. Five ghouls awaited him in a dual storey building and they all pounced on him simultaneously as he breached the room. One of them, a formerly indigo-haired Ellian woman, had managed to climb atop of him while the other four attacked from all sides. She wrapped herself around the base of his ninth limb and drove her claws into it. If her control chip could express emotion, she would almost be surprised by what her talons had dug into.

- This one is flesh. -

The other ghouls quickly responded to this news by coating their claws in sedatives. If their drugs had any effect on these creatures at all, they might have a decent chance to bring it down.

The Gunsmith, Floor -3


Charles took the weapon back from the Qorsikan and leant back in his chair to stow it away on the weapons rack. “Okay, I'll prepare the short rifles for you,” Charles nodded, relieved by the simple fact that the they could actually agree anything something at all, “Though depending on which avenue you want to pursue for obtaining them, you would have to fill out different paperwork. I'll have someone send you all the details later - your people won't be living on base will they?” Adrekka shook her head. “We'll send it to your ship then.”

He took out a sheet of paper from his desk drawer, folded it in half and penned down seven random sets of Standard numbers and characters on one half. After transcribing the same list of glyphs to the other half of the paged he ripped the paper in half and handed one of the two copies to the Qorsikan.

“Because you don't have Ellian communications keys, we can't set up encrypted channels with you without sending you a set of keys in an unencrypted channel first,” he explained, “and needless to say, sending you a set of keys over a public network defeats the purpose of encryption.” He handed her one of the halves and placed the other one in his drawer. “Go see John Camila, our cryptographer, to get these keys set up. Now let's take a look at those schematics.”
