Mark seems concerned that the lieutenant is nowhere to be found. He stops briefly to glance around to find her. Well... She is probably in the rear making sure everyone follows. Better make sure that the front is secured as well.

After a moment Mark charges to the front with his Impaler held high in case of any problems ahead. He moves quickly to the path up the plateau.

Mark leads the group up the path with Angelo and Klimt following right behind. Saipo and Rodrigo follow near Shei. Mark gets to the the top of the path and looks around. There is no sign of the sniper, or anyone else. Leading the rest of the group up, Angelo walks over a pool of something which is reflecting the small amount of light. Come look at this. Walking over, you see spatters of blood and a broken rifle. It looks as if it were sawed in half. A guttural growling noise can be heard from an indiscernible location. Angelo raises his rifle a bit.

From the height of the plateau, you also notice large amounts of Confederates heading towards the other group of rebels below. They begin shooting. Catelyn notices that Dr. Rine is with her group.

Adrenaline pumping through her veins, Shei has trouble keeping her cool. *Feeling like time itself has begun to slow down, she takes in the things around her. *Dammit, I'm getting a headache

What the hell happened to that Rifle?!

What do we do? *Why hasn't the Lieutenant followed yet?


You, she says to Saipo, You've gotta be some kind of scientist. *Look at that fluid and tell me what it is. Rodrigo, find that sniper, just because he left his rifle doesn't make him dead. Shei clutches her head, grunting. Anyone else with a gun, help me give Cover fire*

Shei rushes to a location where she will be able to fire down on the confederates

"Damn" Mark says as he sees the scene. Blood, broken rifle and something I really don't like.

When Shei said he needed fire support, Mark jumped there right away relieved that he didn't have to think of what had happened there. He takes her side and tries to find a way to shoot at the Confederates.

I hope my aim is better this time, or else...

"Ok,"Saipo simply replies. "This is the 2nd strange compound in this area. I wonder if there is a connection. Better figure out what this is first though." Saipo thinks.

He moves while keeping low. He takes out his camera and takes a picture of it for future reference. He then takes out his Evidence Kit to collect a sample while thinking about what it could be or at least what properties it might have (both what it could be made of and what it might do, or just one of them depending on the roll).
ActionsTake a picture and collect a sample of the glowing liquid.

Saipo studies the fluid and can easily recognize it as saliva. Mark, Shei, and several other marines prepare to help their allies, but you find that the Confederates are just too far away. As you watch, the remaining rebels are decimated by Alpha Squadron's awesome display of firepower. We can't go down there. We'll be killed. One of the marines mumbles. Some of the marines are looking around for the source of the growling without success. I suggest we get up to even higher ground. If the Confederates pursue us, we'll have the advantage.

Marching on top of the plateau, taking positions on hill tops, and hiding from Confederate wraiths. The rebel group goes on like these for 3 days. Sometimes human bones crunch underneath your boots. Probably long dead settlers and pioneers. The first day was easy, but now Mar Sara has moved from in front of the sun, and a scorching heat rains down on you from the sky. There are few signs of life on the plateau and food is running thin.

MechanicsYou can declare actions or describe what you've been doing during these 3 days.

Saipo has been staying towards the back going slowly to conserve his energy.

Catelyn's keen to find out from Doctor Rine what was in the facility she was taken to, and what she was intended to be doing at Flannum. She's more than a little interested in what his role was, but suspects that he might be rather cagey about that.

She'll also try to get to know some of the rebels at least a little - they're less likely to execute anyone they like, if nothing else.

During the three days Mark has been a real asset to the group. Without tiring he has stayed in the front and scouted or kept the rear safe. Wherever help was needed, Mark was there with his Impaler rifle working like the scorching sun or the long walk didn't affect him at all. Truth be told, the marine was tired and pushed himself to the limit. The hot sun shining was hell to him in his heavy armor but he knew his duty and that was keep the group safe, not complain of a few sunburns. When the group had stopped for the night, Mark didn't have energy to do nothing else but crawl to a shelter and fall asleep instantly.

During the short and irregular breaks he had, he'd mostly been talking with Shei totally ignoring the Confederates. He wanted nothing more than a reason to shoot them full of spikes with his rifle.

And Shei was the reason that he hadn't. After they began their trek, Shei had worked hard to keep everything running like an oiled machine. She has to, the loss of her commanding officer was... Frustrating. They had no plans, nothing. Shei prayed that they could find a korhol dropship. Shei was quickly working herself to the bone, appearing more and more tired, even immediately after sleep. But nobody could see this, Shei ensured that she never let her guard down, especially around the confeds. I'm better than this, I have gone through worse than this in training. C'mon Shei! The Jungle Training was harder than this marathon.

No longer eclipsed by Chau Sara's twin, the Saran sun glares down harshly on the rebel group as they trudge along the plateau. Others grumble about the scorching heat of the sun, but Yves basks in the warm glow, often closing his eyes to drink in the sensation of rays on his face. The Rock stays up near the front of the group, padding lightly alongside Mark, whose stoic silence reeks of hostility towards Teers, the pilot-in-training, and their cargo.

The first day after they had climbed up out of the canyon, Yves had experienced a kind of quiet that he hadn't felt in years. The neural implant in the base of his neck did not create any audible sound, but emanated a faint, continuous buzzing that might have been purely cerebral. In any case, without the repowering or renewing or reprogramming or whatever it was those Confederate technicians did every week, the implant simply went dead mid-stride. The Rock had informed his new companions of his new freedom, but without any good way to test the implant's ineffectiveness -- save shooting Teers in the face -- the rebels still seemed wary of the pilot.

Yves didn't really care. He was freer than he had been in a long time.

The sun rises once more over Chau Sara's desolate wastes. A large Saran bird follows you as if its waiting for one of you to collapse. It seems to be just another day of avoiding detection. What are we supposed to do? We can't wander this plateau forever... Cooper words whats on everyones mind. Needless to say, troop morale is low.

The morning runs smoothly. A wraith swoops by leaving a trail of smoke. Damn. Look at that thing's rear thruster, Teers comments on the torn looking wraith. Something is sticking out of the back of it.

In the afternoon, a cluster of boulders in the distance looks to be the best place to move to. No. I'm telling you Angelo, the TETIR hover bike could beat your Swift any day. Berns and Angelo have been going on like this for a while. Klimt took point just so he wouldn't have to listen to it. Swifts have the new YZ stabilizers. Take a corner too hard on a TETIR and you're gone. Man, once we get out of here you gotta take a look at my... As they continue on you notice something wrong.

You hear a click and Klimt stops. He turns and looks at you before going up in a ball of flame as the fireflush mine ignites. There is nothing left put a few drops of blood.

The trap is now obvious. From behind the boulders several Alpha Squadron marines charge you. Another squad approaches from behind. The rebel group begins running up a nearby rock pillar to escape. The firefight is inevitable. The Confederates begin firing freely, releasing bursts into the unarmored Sons of Korhal. Chandler takes a pair of spikes in the chest and tumbles down the pillar. The rebels return fire, but you're outflanked and only a few Alpha boys go down.

However, a beacon of hope shines as you reach the top of the rock pillar. A dropship, pitch black with dark purple flames, approaches your position. The fight continues and now Rodrigo has been killed. Angelo yells as he unloads clip after clip into the armored targets. The dropship is near now. It hovers near the top of the rock pillar, it's thrusters burn a peculiar blue and purple. On the side of the transport, you see painted, The Void Runner.

A man stands waiting to help you aboard.

Dr. Rine is the first to the dropship. He gets to the edge but doesn't make it any further. A spike tears through his stomach and he spins down, falling to the waste floor below. Berns approaches next and throws Saipo on. The Confederates are close now. He helps Catelyn and Teers aboard next. McTavish is brought down in a hail of gunfire. You can now see a trio of wraiths blasting the ground around you. Yves, Mark, Shei, and Angelo all make it aboard. You are surprised to see Lt. Cook laying in a stretcher, asleep, unconscious...maybe dead. Cooper and Sixx hop on the transport and provide cover fire for Berns. Cooper is hit in the arm and he falls back. Bern's legs are torn out from under him as the wraiths circle again, this time targeting the transport. The Void Runner begins to flee and Berns is left in the wasteland, slowly bleeding out.

Out of the frying pan and into the fire. Those wraiths will tear this ship to shreds! Teers' logic is sound. The wraiths pursue with deadly speed. Suddenly the dropship lurches and the ground whizzes past. This is the fastest moving ship you've ever been on and you're certain that it's no regular Quantradyne APOD-33 Dropship. The wraiths are left behind as The Void Runner makes her ascension out of the Chau Saran atmosphere.

Only five Sons of Korhal marines have survived. Among the living are: Mark, Shei, Angelo, Sixx, and a wounded Cooper.

Catelyn starts to try to find the most out-of-the-way and secure corner she can, following the urge to curl up in a ball in the dark and fall apart for a while.

However, that quickly turns into a rather frantic search for a med-kit. She might not have much of an idea of how to use one, but Cooper needs help and from the look of the Lieutenant, someone aboard this thing knows how to provide it.

Yves marvels at the transport's inexplicable speed and power, and he wonders to what faction this unusual craft belongs. At the moment, however, his curiosity is outweighed by simple relief. Yves had boarded the mystery ship for the simple fact that he'd rather be die aboard a craft than bleed out his life on the rocks below. But the Void Runner has proven itself to be beyond the rookie pilot's expectations, leaving only propulsion trails to keep company with the Confederate wraiths.

As the Void Runner gains open space above the planet, the Rock takes a moment to study the man who helped them onto the ship, trying to ascertain what group might be in possession of such a craft. At the current moment, however, the answer might well be of little consequence. In the past few days, the pilot has been shot down by rebels, assaulted by Confederate marines, and picked up by a strange but apparently friendly crew. With little understanding of the situation, Yves remains quiet but takes care to keep his sidearm loaded and in easy reach.
