<-----------------------------------Time Break -------------------------------------------->
Continuing Post-Fold mission....

Skullette closed her eyes getting herself back into reality as she cued up the coms of the squad. =Alright folks, we are in system. ETA to drop zone is twenty minutes. The schematics for the battle space are being sent now.= Schematics and maps of the target area would pop up in the HUD of each pilot. =Current intelligence shows the Scorps taking up a defensive posture. This is in mechanized, infantry and aerial assets. Our Cover team will drop in along the ridge to the south. We can expect at least a couple hundred Scorps in the theater. I do not have a report of the exact numbers. You all raise as much hell as possible. Five minutes later, Retrieval Team will drop in near the entrance to the mines. It is marked with the red X in your displays.  Doc will release drones into the tunnels and we will proceed to hunt for the Princess. We believe she sill be held in the lower mining operations center 1KM beneath the surface. We go in fast and wipe out anything that isnt us or the Princess. Doc's drones should locate and mark her within a few minutes. At least that's how it reads on paper=

"I believe the Orpheus suit is working well past expectations. I have exact numbers for the enemy array. 350 Scorpio troops. 50 tanks, 35 heavy mechanized suits, 150 infantry w/ battle armor, 25 mounted guns, 50 air units, and 40 light support personnel. I tell you this privately because I am unsure if the rest of the team are mentally capable of noting these numbers and proceeding according to plan. I would be ready for a least one defector if I were you. Faust out."

The visions Angel receives as the ship jumped leave her shaken for a little while after Skulette has finished speaking.  After a few moments longer she regains her composure enough to speak.

"Skullette."  She waits a moment for the connection to be established.  "I had some kind of... episode during transit - a connection to the people on this outpost.  I saw the target near the operations centre of the mine.  If what I saw was real, she is being held in an office, under guard but unharmed."

Marcus shook himself awake. He had visions of his family again, livid dreams of their dead bodies and then the his vengeance followed by his trial. He saw himself holding his daughter in his arms, crying out in pain as he sat alone in his dark house.

Tavarian found himself going through strange memories that he can only see during the Tessearch. he has no recollection of these images, of this child he sees. this happy child in aires clothing. an even older child in a battle against scorpios. then the memories he could remember, a child in the hospital. the same child going through scorpio training, then aries training. a young adult going to earth then being shot down in an apollo suit. the last image was the same suit sitting in a drop ship waiting for battle. hey birdman, come back to reality for a second. the mission's about to start.[man I'm glad I have you Justin, otherwise I might have been left in my memories forever. I'm just glad that's over.] -Skullette-this is Phoenix. since the scorpio house is made up of bits and pieces of other houses, we'll be seeing a defensive technique based off of all of the other houses. they'll probably be using more of an aires technique than a libran technique that you might use. no offense intended of course.-

Destiny is a freight train rolling along on a set course that only the conductor knows. When we get to the railroad crossing in our car, we can choose to stop and wait for the train to pass us by, or try to pull out in front of it and beat that bad boy across. That choice is our free will. If it's our destiny to be hit by the train, we will be hit by the train. The only thing we can change is how the train turns us into a hamburger.

Lukas was standing in a black forrest.
All trees were charred.
The sky was bleakly white.
In a blink of an eye he was standing in the burning streets of the capital of Schwarzwald.
Dressed in his light power armor.
Casings around his feet, a burning barricade on the next crossroads.
The same bleakly withe sky above him.
Filled with the smoke of fires all over the town.
With a flash he was back in the silent forrest.
All colores were inverted.
Lukas turned around, but there was nothing but charred white trees around him, and a dull black night.
Another flash.
He was in the city again, this time on the burning barricade he has seen befor.
Everything looked the same.
Except for the soldier in the light power armor one block away.
Who lifted his arm mounted LMG.
As he did, Lukas noticed a blood red laser dot rushing over the midnight black tarmac towards him...
Just to loose it in the reflextion of the fire on the tarmac.
The last thing he heard a shot and everything went black.

Suddenly he could feel the heat around him, and an alien pressour wrapping around him
Lukas? A voice wispherd Come on! the female voice called more urgent.
Hm ? Lukas opend his eyes and was greated with more blackness that lit up and became his HUD
Sorry Sworty, just bad dream... He mumbled as he tried to get his heartrate back under control and down.

Re: Mission one - Code Name: Escort Service

While the others wrestled with their time in the Tesserach's grip, Miguel had a rather different experience.

He saw himself, 16 again, killing that mugger with his own knife. Once, twice, three times. Then again and again, until he couldn't raise his arm again.

Then he was 25. His father, raising his hand to strike him. The knife coming up in retaliation. He didn't even see it coming...

Then, he was back in the ship, his heart racing from the remembered rush, the thrill of revenge... of murder.

Re: Mission one - Code Name: Escort Service

=We take position on the ridge, shoot everything in range, change position, repeat. Causing as much confision and distraction as possible. Priority targets are aerial and anti aerial assets of the Scorps.
By the point you got Princess, we should have cleared enough breathing room for Phoenix, to get the package to extraction alpha. And then its your show again...=
Lukas plan was displayed with light markers on the 3d map in everyones HUD.
=We could join forces again once you are out of the tunnels. Or shoot our way to extraction as two independent Teams, so the Scorps have no single target to focus on, really depends on the Situation we face then....=

Miguel considered putting his hand out for the lead role in the caves. Frankly, it'd be funny to see Skullette's reaction to it. She'd probably kick him again.

Or maybe she'd just shoot him. He laughed at the thought.

=Thank you Doc, but I will be handling the Retrieval team. I want a straight blitz to the central mine operations area. Our objective is to take Princess into our custody, so don't waste your time on gratuitous body counts. Once we have Princess, Cuchillo and Reaperess can hack and slash our way back to the surface. Doc and I will safeguard Princess. Doc, I want as much tactical data as you can get us through the mines, and anything else you can do to screw up the Scorpio Commander and Control functions.

Lumberjack, have you people prioritize any units that might endanger Phoenix. Last thing we want is to lose Princess at the last minute because Phoenix gets shot down. Any more questions? We are at ten minutes to drop for team one. Get yourselves ready. Weapons are free.=

==I take it you want me in the centre, then?  Hopefully there won't be any enemies in range of my weapons.==

Angel cuts the transmission and speaks to Armael.

"Give me the direction of incoming fire and highlight the rest of the team and the target when you have her.  I want Sworty, Joanie, Justin and Dante highlighted even if they're behind solid cover."

As her systems unlock, Angel runs her own checks on the various medical and mechanical repair systems in her suit.  She checks the responsiveness of her nanobots and spins the energy emitter up to a 5% benevolent discharge.

Even though he's not speaking, she can sense Armael's eagerness to get out of the ship and into the action.  It's an eagerness she doesn't share.

Well this should be easy. Well, on my end at least. I'm sorry, sugar, but I don't have a set location on our Princess. As soon as I get something, you'll know. Now if you don't mind a recommendation to your super great tactical plan...I would recommend putting our little birdie in the air. He can't do anything for you on the ground.

Re: Mission one - Code Name: Escort Service

Skullette watched as each of the cover team bailed out the ramp. She genuinely wondered how many if any she would ever see again. They were certainly capable, but there were a lot of Scorpio down on the surface with hardware that didn't suck. She turned her eye towards those on her team. In truth, they had lower chances of survival forging blind into a tight cave filled with enemies. She subconsciously started checking the charge on her rifle, even with a pair of psychos leading the way, she was gonna be plenty busy with her weapons too. What the hell was she thinking?

-It's not going to be that bad.- Diana ' s voice said in as soothing of a tone as it could.
-I suppose. Better squads have been taken apart by less.- she cool responded to the suit.
-I don't know Phebes, I have a good feeling about those two.-
-Jesus mio! I told you not to call me Phebes!- She snapped back at the machine. -Let's get ready for the drop ok?- The AI  seemed to be giggling at her in her mind. Fine!

=Ok folks, Lumberjack ' s crew is about to start lighting up the landscape. Cuchillo, you got point out the door, Reapress you follow and I'm on your heels, Doc you bring up the rear and do what you have to. Let's get hot people!

Faust hesitantly follows behind the rest of the team a they jumped out of the aircraft. He had never skydived before, but trusted his suit to perform magnificently. Before he jumped the Orpheus' shoulder compartment opened and a large, black-chitinous wasp flew towards the battlefield at all haste. In the dim light, it was hard to distinguish it's opalescent sheen as it flew over and surveilled the landscape below.

"Air surveillance deployed. Pay attention to your HUDS. Enemies, teammates, civilians and such are highlighted as the small legend states. Once the ground drone locates princess, I will highlight her pink...UGH!! " The las part odf the message was Faust landing harder than expected and his suit scraping across the hard landscape.

He immediately stood an activated his cloaking, and released the ground drone. As a compartment in the calve of the suit opened, a large, crystaline spider shot across the ground towards the cave where princess was supposed to be held. It instantly crawled to the cavernous ceiling as it entered the cave.

all
Ground surveillance deployed.

He took out one submachine gun in his right hand, and readied the nanites in his left as he crept to the cave entrance.

Miguel leaped up and sprinted for the opening, barreling out at top speed and twisting into a dive. He loved the feeling of power this gave him, toppling through the air faster than most men could hope to go. His suit read back to him various pieces of information.

And even as the numbers rattled down, he refused to open his parachute until the last possible second.
