Operation Night Beast claimed its first casualty in the campaign. Advent forces were attacking a defenseless settlement and we moved in to protect. Our Squaddies Tatyana, Grog, and Beth were joined by Rookie Gretta Nilsen. Gretta’s grenade scored the first kill earning her a quick promotion.
The mission went sideways when Greg was mind controlled by the aliens. By killing the sectoid we could free the mind control, but it didn’t happen until Beth took a hit from Greg’s melee weapon.
Before recovering we were flanked by a small patrol of Advent. Their officer’s lucky shot finished off the critically wounded Beth, and Tatyana also too a severe damage.
With the remaining forces down, the enemy Faceless was forced to reveal himself and was quickly taken down by the remaining forces.
Tatyana’s wounds will leave her out of combat for nearly a month. This is a setback for our rising Grenadier star. Fortunatly Squaddie Gretta has taken up her arms and filling in the missing Grendadier ranks.
