I was rejoined by Gris Seeya who’s adopted a heavy weapons payload. Our mission was to recover some tactical equipment to help uncover the purposes of Advent. We were joined by rookies Nike Deal and Judson Judson. We discovered these aliens can resurrect their fallen comrades, creepy.
We moved down the main street making quick work of things. Nike making great cover from the rooftops. Things took a sour turn after an airdrop support arrived for Advent. We had to swing around to protect our flanks. Gris was hit pretty bad and Nike ran down from the roofs in a panic.
My new blade weapon got its first taste of alien blood. After a powerful strike I was left horribly out of position, and payed the price. I took nearly fatal damage myself, but it wasn’t enough to prevent me from finishing the final sectoid off with a second death strike from the sword.
Only Judson avoided medical recovery from this mission. It still resulted in a round of promotions for amazing performances all around. Nike has specialized in sharpshooting, while Judson will be bringing drone assistance, and will be the high ranking member of our next battle.
It turns out Gris’ wounds have shaken up his fortitude. It may take several missions before he fully recovers.
