Re: Final Stand - SilentPhantom Vs. Zifer

High atop the newly discovered planet:
[Image: 8590e14e58.png]
"Anomaly Located" a booming, artificial voice calls over the loudspeaker. Sirens wail, and troops leave the barracks to arm up for the coming assault.

The ship hangs above the planet, known to the Devorantem, as Diomedes-Eccentia, an unexplored planet on the reaches of the Diomedes House territory. The Diomedes House is perhaps the biggest House in the Devorantem front, a section of space filled with forgotten worlds that once housed many human-like sentient beings before the solar brink war.

Before the rest of the ships are packed and ready to leave, a small contingent of soldiers is sent to the co-ordinates on the planet's surface to scout ahead.

As the drop pod burns up and speeds towards the planet surface, silence echoes throughout the center of the pod as the soldiers within prepare themselves mentally for battle. Earlier that day they were sure to perform their morning rituals, including the Rite of Blood, a procedure that helps to stem their genetic mutation from damaging their psyche.

Re: Final Stand - SilentPhantom Vs. Zifer

A secluded planet on the outer edges of the ObseRvers empire - here, their name means nothing. Yet. A small camp has been built a few miles from here and this small squad has walked the way towards here, except for the Chameleon, which was sent there 2 days ago to act as overwatch. It does not move and is impossible to detect, as it visually can't be told apart from the background in front of which it stands. Thermal vision will also not detect it, as its body temperature has adjusted to the air. It is perfectly disguised.

What has not been disguised properly tough is the squad arriving at the other side of the building. Their grenadier and explosives-expert, Tri'tera is standing in front of the wall, looking slightly confused due to the lack of an entrance. "No entranze here. I guess we have to make one." she says and raises her eyebrow, as she thinks how dumb the architect of this building must've been to not plan in an emergency exit. Either that or he was smart, as this building is easier to defend when there's only one entrance.

The Heavy following closely behind her sarcastically remarks:"I kan tell of a thing I'd like to make with you, but its not an entranze." The Ostrich following behind him snickers and covers himself with his shield, as tough Tera would throw a grenade at him in response. "Will you ever chanke, Naail?" she asks and continues to react to the snickering:"And you too Nasril. You are damn khildren!" They all three share a healthy laugh, as they've been friends ever since they joined the Alliance, and are used to joking around with each other. They have spent almost their entire duty together, and have survived quite some trouble. Little did they know that today was not a usual mission...

The drop pod smashes into the old soil with a loud tremor. The inner mechanisms whirr and clunk, eventually grinding open to reveal a silent group of soldiers clad in thick plate armour. They each stand, clasping their ranged halberds, and stomp in formation down the hill a way. A large, hulking behemoth thuds to the entrance of the pod, and activates it's scanners. "Brothers," it begins, it's voice deep and bassy. "My scanners pick up other living signatures in the area. One or two, readings are not accurate." The other soldiers raise their weapons, and scout the immediate area in front of them.

"Al'dura, Brother." one soldier says to another. His voice is whispy and rough, from a lifetime of breathing a hazardous atmosphere.
"Al'dura, Timz'hael." the other soldier retorts, walking toward the tank wreck.

If the Alliance were capable of translating Enochian dialect (the language of the Devorantem), they would find that "Al'dura" means "Harvest", a term used by the Devorantem when they suspect they will be engaging in combat soon. "Timz'hael" means "Bountiful", a play on words whereby the soldier in question has combined "Harvest" in it's agricultural context and implied that he hopes their "Crop harvest will be bountiful".

Tera places some explosives on the wall and pushes a button. She runs away from the wall and shouts:Watkhout! It's about to blow!" Nail sarcastically replies:"I've heard that the Sytes say 'Blow' when they refer to -" but he's interrupted by Nasril:"We all know what the Sytes say." he shudders and semi-angrily shouts:"Thank you asshole! Now I kan't stop imakinink a Syte with a five feet long -" and now Nasril is the one interrupted, by Tera:"You kuys are diskustink did anyone ever tell you that?" she says as the charge behind her ticks faster and faster.

They all know that they're supposed to encounter Xeno's here, but they didn't expect the Devorantem. Nobody really did, except the ObseRvers, and because of this, nobody really knows what this mission is supposed to be. It could be a simple training-routine for all the lizards know. The Devorantem are known to the Alliance, but their Intentions are not yet fully known, as is their Language. The Alliance and the ObseRvers hope to gather more information from the conflict that will happen here.

(For ease of reading, all Devorantem dialogue in brown will be in their Enochian dialect, but written in English.)

The soldiers continue to jog down the hill in their heavy, thick plate armour, made easier by the steady decline of the hill and their extensive physical training. "Step lightly brothers. Gargant, what do your ancient sensors detect?" one soldier beckons, his voice like gravel.
"Scanners detect 3 heat signatures. I have completed the scan of the building ahead. It is of early Arcanian architecture, dating mid-brink. Most likely location for anomaly is underground." the hulking being of thick armour bellows, it's bipedal legs whirring and thudding against the dirt to keep up with his comrades. It eventually reaches the wrecked tank, and hops up on top for a better vantage point to scan the surrounding environment.
"Perhaps these beings also hunt the anomaly. I hope you have remember to perform your battle rites this day brothers, for we are in need of Diomedes and the holy Archlord's guiding hand." the first soldier calls to his comrades, making a beeline for the entrance to the building.

High above the planet, the intelligence section of the Ark-Diomedean begin to process the data being uploaded by the Gargant's visual and heat sensors. It's weapon restrictions are unlocked, and it is officially deemed combat ready.

The Charge detonates and blows a hole into the wall.
[Image: bPczl.png]
The Sniper takes aim at the enemy units and informs his teammates about them:"Enemy forces appear to be wearing medium to heavy armor. I suggest you use a smoker to wear them down a bit. Also there is something akin to a heavy unit standing on the tank-wreck." The still visible glass of his scope glares as the sun shines into it, giving his position away. Tera runs into the building and jumps down the elevator shaft, holding onto the very edge with one of her claws and hanging onto a rope with the other. She carries a grenade with her tail, ready to surprise the incoming enemies with it, and Nail aims his heavy assault rifle at the end of the hallway, ready to reduce incoming enemies to a bloody pile of guts. Nasril stands still. He drew a small Machinepistol on his way here, making him less dangerously armed but due to the shield and his armor more efficiently armored.

The hulking gargant's visual scanners detect the glint of the Chameleon's scope. "Brothers, my scanners detect the movement of a fourth entity. Some form of camouflage that isn't detectable by my thermal sensors. Opening fire." The gargant's personal railgun launches a single shot toward the target, having had it's weapon usage restriction protocols remotely lifted from high command aboard the Ark-Diomedean.

An intelligence Justicar of the High Diomedean Council speaks directly to the gargant. "Ancient one, add a new objective to your assignment: Find out what sort of camouflage technology the target is using. If possible, bring back the body dead or alive for further analysis." The gargant's interface flickers as it's objectives are updated. "Yes, my liege." the gargant bellows.

As the trio of soldiers rush for the cover of the building, the front most soldier spots the top of the head of the sentient creature in the lift shaft, and the other creature standing just outside of the hallway. He takes a shot toward the one outside the hallway, whilst darting for cover.
"Into battle we ride, brothers! For Diomedes!" the first soldier cries out. "FOR DIOMEDES!" the other two shout, charging into battle.

Above, in the Administratum room of the Ark-Diomedean, the High Justicar, named Diom-Strahem, meets with his Enginseer council.
"Brothers, detection of the sentient anomalies on the planet below has been confirmed by the Ancient One. Testing of the Greater Ancient One will begin momentarily. Understood? I want it operational by the time I am ready to deploy."
The other Enginseers huddle around and communicate via a a multitude of metallic clicking and scraping, an ancient language used by the half-machine half-human Enginseers for a millenia. The headmost Enginseer takes a step forward and speaks in a voice almost like the whisper of a corpse: "Yes, my liege. She shall be ready."

Nail ducks from the incoming shot and decides to return the heavy fire. He flicks a switch and pushes the trigger, shooting a High velocity grenade at his enemies. Their big guns impress him much, and he'd love to just hang out with those big brutish guys, but unfortunately, they are the enemies and must be exterminated. Behind him, the railguns slug pushes into the Stilt of Nasril, nearly breaking it apart. The steel of which it is made is highly durable, but such a hard shot has nearly wrecked it. He reckons that if it were his body that would've been hit, he'd be dead.

Tera throws two grenades in quick succession, one EM-Flash and a ToxGas-Grenade. She reckons that if they both hit, the enemy will be without weaponry and armor, as their giant guns are probably electrical of nature and their armor will most likely be corroded to the point where wearing leaves would be more safe.  :coolcat:She is not sure however, and slides down the rope to avoid being hit by both the guys behind her and those at the end of the halway.

Then, there's there sound of flesh being crushed heard throughout the battlefield as the heavy round tears apart the Chameleon.

The first grenade explodes just behind the barricade, whereas the EM-Flash and ToxGas-Grenade make it over. The EM-Flash grenade succeeds in disabling the front most soldier's weapon, as well as the energy blades on his halberd. The toxic cloud from the other grenade makes it harder for them to see, and starts to bellow from the canister.
"Stay back, brothers! The enemy has deployed chemical weapons against us!"

High above on the Ark-Diomedean, the High Justicar orders the Enginseers to load the Greater Ancient One onto a transport ship.

The second of Nasrils stilts is hit, but he got down before, as he is unable to work with one damaged leg let alone two. Nail stayed down and this payed out due to the next incoming shot. He aims his rifle up a bit and shoots some regular rounds at the enemy. They fly through the now fully outspread gas, which reduces them to useless bits of lead and Metal, which barely make it past the armor of the hostile and manage to just scratch their skin slightly. However, this actually is an advantage, as the gas which still clinged onto the bullets now is past that armor, sealing the fate of this unfortunate soldier.

Tera has made it down the shaft and advances into the caves, holding an explosive grenade from her backpack. She got a ingenious idea on how to deal with the hostiles, and the first step is executed down in this caves.

As the bullets pierce the armour, the soldier inside cries out in anguish. "BROTHERS! THE GODS WAIT FOR NO MAN!" he cries, clutching at his wounds as his very flesh begins to melt. "D-DIOMEDES!" He calls out angrily, falling to the ground.
The other soldiers look at their fallen brother in horror, and the frontmost soldier raises his gun. "Avenge our dead! Leave none alive!" he calls, firing a few shots.
