OOC: Yo. Those of you who know the Deadspace deal, go ahead. If you don't check out the Deadspace thread.
The rain pelts down upon the tin roof of the command station amid the jungles of Jimsun. The view from the roofed foxhole reveals a tangled wasteland of violet alien jungle, blasted trenches, dead bodies, and the mangled wreckage leftover from yesterday's skimmer attack.
Fradrek Moritomo, High Lieutenant of StarFORCE 4th Land Legion, Second Arm, Fourth Talon, holds a pair of binocs up to his visor. Target-tags, command lines, and battle data stream across his helmet's HUD, and the voice channel plays only the noise of the downpour, and the occasional whispered question and answer in StarFORCE combat chatter. No sign of the enemy.
Fradrek and his Talon, and their Arm, came down planetside 4 standard months ago, and there has still been little progress. Hired by the Jimsunian government to help the useless Jimsun Self-Defence Force defeat the rebel forces, the StarFORCE troops have made progress where the JSDF has been destroyed, burning the jungle to prevent guerilla tactics, destroying key rebel installations. But that's not as big as it sounds, and Fradrek knows it.
He hasn't made enough progress. By the strict schedule laid down by Commander Jarrdon, his Talon should be in the capitol, Jimsun City, by now, putting down the last of the rebels on the southern continent. But yesterday's massive vehicle attacks, coupled with the detonation of the fusion factories along the River Donn last week, have slowed his schedule to the pace of a Dromian snail.
Suddenly, a burst of battle chatter fills the command post. "CO-ORDS OREN DOUBLE ZETA SEVEN! HEAVY SUPPRESSION, I REPEAT, HEAVY SUPP-AAAH!" comes the call, the last bit cut of with the bizarre sound of a hellwhip maser.
Fradrek is relieved. Finally, some sign of where the action is.
A line of powerful StarFORCE Commando-Troopers moves surreptitiously down the trenches toward the blasted concrete ruins of Jimsun City.
OOC: Your characters should probably be in Jimsun City or with Fradrek's StarFORCE troopers.
