Campaign#1PostSubject: Building the team.   Sun Sep 17, 2017 1:58 pm

12th July 2568


The Eternal Eyrie-New Serpentum.
Throne Hall. 12:47PM.


-------------------------------


The Imperial Court was in a uproar.....The war whilst slowly falling into their favor was far too costly...With the current progress the empire would not have the manpower and resources to recolonize and rebuild the North.


The Imperial Army had their hands full and most of the it's representatives in the Court were absent to attend to the war itself,the Intelligence service where constantly scouring Helix communications and signals whilst also keeping a eye on the other factional powers just in case they would break the alliance and attack the weakened Imperium. All divisions of the empire where focused on the Helix War.And because of that narrow-minded focus the Alliance was being drawn into a war of attrition.The reports told no lies.


Helix was bleeding the Alliance dry....


The Empire could not divert resources to counter this lest they lose ground on the front.The GSU already diverted most of it's military forces to support the front and the Drosden remained focused on pushing the front towards the former Immortal worlds much to the dismay of the War Council.


The Empire needed another force detached from the complexities of the allied effort.A private force directly commanded by the Viscount,one detached from the Imperial Army and the respective military forces of the Alliance.They needed a icon that would improve morale for the entire allied war effort.This meant it could not be a Imperial,GSU and Drosden force,lest it would cause political fracture in the alliance between them.No this force would be christened heroes and sent to fight Helix on it's backyard.A force sent beyond the frontline to sabotage Helix and show that it's defeat is more possible with each system taken. Glorified poster boys  


The Court agreed on this,the Viscount's proposal for this force was given light and some resources had been brought to organize this special unit.


The Court registered them as the Galactic Crisis Unit or G.C.U for short,yet the Court all had different names for them.Some of the Varanus named them 'Krelkorric' meaning Throne Fury whilst the Human courtiers named them 'Wolfpack and System Purge'.None could agree on the name they would later be known across the galaxy for.


For now they where named 'Bane' Battalion for the sake of agreement.


-----------------------------------------------------------
13 July 2568

Eternal Eyrie-New Serpentum
Lower left wing {Viscount's chambers}


----------------------------------------------------------


The Viscount looked over the reports provided by Intelligence Service and reports given by the Colonial Intelligence Agency and whatever the pirates had on others.


Six individuals chosen....


All from various backgrounds some from other factions and governments.


The Viscount focused and began reading through the list.


---------------------------------------------------------

{OOC: I will notify the members chosen.Please do not post on this thread}

Campaign#2PostSubject: Re: Building the team.   Sat Oct 07, 2017 3:18 pm

Six holographic documents laid on his table,the Viscount studied them intently......




Among the many documents was the schematic for the secret vessel built for the operation,one funded by the Viscount himself using old treasures his house had kept since it's establishment during the rise of the first empire.It was....difficult...to part with it to pay what was needed to let the Zodarrin loan the technologies needed to create a breed of ship foreign to the Imperial shipyards on New Serpentum.


While the Viscount would peruse around these documents the Intelligence Service would track down these individuals and bring them to the Capital

More specifically to Eternal Eyrie..The heart of the Empire's political power.They would within a period of a week end up on the white steel platforms of the Eyrie Outer Docking Bay.


They would be led into the Throne hall by the Zikah Guard clad in their alabaster white armour,the guard herded the group to the center of the hall and told them to wait.With that the guard remained at the doors locking their spears to block entry..or exit.


The hall was eerily quiet and empty which was unusual for those who frequent the Eyrie,the site of where the Empire's most powerful individuals would argue and advise over how best to maintain the Imperium was dimly lit and the rounded amphitheater of seats raised upon higher platforms seemed abandoned. One seat was raised the highest,made from a alien marble and adorned with colored banners of deep purples and gold.The back of the seat was connected to a pillar that supported the roof of the Eyrie and it from where the group stood the chair seemed to dominate the room....


An awkward silence fell over the room as not even the Zikah Guards present in the room would stir.

Marcus walked with the rest of the group, as they were lead into the throne room, without a word. Being silent most of the time was a defining attribute of all Spartan troops, except when in battlefield situations. Instances such as these: standing out here in the throne hall, waiting to receive orders and mission briefings would normally cause other units to think through the situation and process what was being said to them without a word.

Marcus was different though. He didn't give a shit. If he had a problem with something, he spoke up about it. Not much stayed in his mind as most of it would exit his mouth without prompting. That wasn't to say that he was extremely talkative, but he just didn't hold back. And if there was nothing on his mind, he had nothing to say.

So there they were, standing in awkward silence in the middle of the hall, waiting for... something. The boredom took its toll on Marcus quickly and he instantly blurted out, "Olright so what the fuck is the hold up then?" His voice carried a slight tinge of a scottish accent in it. He turned towards the Zikah Guards.
"I was sent here ta' fight, not stand in ceremony in front a' buncha spectres for cryin' oot loud! Am beginning to build up an itch in my bahoochie from just standing still doin nuthin."

Natalie always had some sort of Connection to the Imperium since she stepped foot on Imperial planet she felt home, as if it wa destined for her to be in the Imperial army.




And now she´s Standing there with some other Chumps after being escorded to a Big hall and told to wait for someone or something to give them instructions, she followed the orders as it seemed These guards were from an High Rank, not only any High rank a Zikah Guard wich meant the Person or Thing was very important.




She stood there Face down Hands folded patiently, untill one of the others started to talk so she looked at him and answered a Little bit pissed that the silence was broken. "Could you shut up you Bloody Cunt? If it´s a fight you want i could just Punch you right now"

Elizabeth's Knight Armor:
 


Elizabeth followed the others into the Hall, her footsteps silent. As though she was a wraith, the woman's​ presence was almost like that of a monster's. On her person was a long, brown coat, more patches and oil stains than the original cloth. Underneath the jacket, she wore a set of dangerous armor. She had only just became a Knight, and then she was called by a noble of the Varanus. It was strange alright. In her caution, Elizabeth fiddled with the blade at her hip. Small electric bolts traveled between the plates if her armor. Her fiery red hair was tied back in a ponytail as her blue eyes watched those who gathered around her.


Her silence, forged by the Knight's, forced her to hold her tongue as two of those that stood before her voiced their own opinions. The threat from the second causing her to grasp the holy of her sword even more.

There was a large difference of opinion between the group that would be hard to tell what powers the others held. He stood at the end of the line on the right his mask obscuring his face. As he glanced to the left towards the others that were brought here his recording software automatically picked up on movement and began recording. He chose to stay quiet while the seemingly Scottish Spartan had spoken. Once the girl without electricity sparking through their body spoke he decided that this was enough. His voice modifier activated and randomly picked a mixture of dark whispers and deep robotic. 
"How about you both shut up so we can leave faster." 
After he said this he disengaged his voice modifier and stood back looking straight ahead. His pistols were now activated and ready to discharge in case one of these fools decided to move in on him. He stood at a rigid attention waiting for one of them to move first so he could have an excuse to kill one of them.

"How about all of you be patient?"He'd ask before looking away at his Photon Revolver's.He'd start to be a little annoyed by them talking with that manner in such a place.


Since Simonis knew exactly who they were going to meet...

As tensions rose the Zikah guard simply drummed the lower end of their spears against the silvery floor causing a echoing chime that silenced the group.


Within a few minutes the doors opened and a Varanus bearing wings {sign of nobility to those familiar with the empire's society} strode into the chamber,the scarred reptilian said nothing as he observed each member of the team with a grin. Stretching his wings as he flicked his tail from one side to the other,the once rich colour of his brownish scales had faded with age,his eye having been regrown since the Council of Restoration several months prior.Those who watched holonews and television entertainment frequently would recognize this Varanus...Those in the Empire knew him as their current leader. The Viscount Raxus Imar.


The Viscount walked towards the throne,pulling out a jeweled sceptre from under his purplish robes adorned with rich textures and alien fabrics.He took his seat in one of the two chairs in the row below the throne,the other seat reserved for the military commander of the entire legion.The Viscount tapped the point of the sceptre against his chair and the room seemed to shift as the exotic living metal reacted to the commands of the Emperor's rod. Liquids formed chairs in the centre of the room in front of the group and became solid with another tap from the Viscount,with the spectacle out of the way he spoke in a clear and direct voice amplified by the throne hall audio balancers. 


"Welcome....To the Capital and the Eyrie upon which you now stand.....Witness the toil and prosperity we forge despite the Helix situation.....May I offer you all refreshments."


Human and Elven servants entered the room in neatly dressed uniforms with fixed smiles that warmed the travellers,they carried with them trays of both local and exotic foods ranging from Traxorian Blood Steak to the simple Earth 'Cheeseburger and fries' complimenting the meal was a array of exotic cocktails that would make mixologists gasp. This whole ordeal despite rationing by the Imperial Civil Administration was to showcase Imperial prosperity and power through luxury....Luxury that in reality was restricted to address the need to fuel various reconstruction efforts as the Empire retook ground from Helix....


Which brought the Viscount to a point,he spoke once the team has had their fill of refreshments.


"Fighting Helix on such a wide front is no easy task....Even less so considering our intentions to rebuild the Northern Galaxy under a unified banner....We can draw out Helix into a devastating war of attrition like we suspect it's doing now...But should that happen then the entire campaign is for nothing....We will have an economic collapse within the first year.....But now you may ask what has this to do with you......"


He eased in his seat,his leathery scaled wings flanking his sides.


"Morale is low....The Empire and the GSU military forces are preoccupied....Helix is devising tactics against ours at every battle.....We require something Helix would not suspect....An unorthodox solution to our little machine crisis....The Intelligence Service has been working closely with the Colonial Intelligence Agency to select a special group of individuals we feel would fit the operation we have planned to end Helix at the source...."


He breathed.


"This is no small task....You will be going in alone without aid from the Alliance....You will be thrust deep into Helix territory of which we have no intel on.....Some of you may not even return...But rest assured I as the Imperial Viscount of the Serpentum Imperium have taken steps to provide you all with the tools and means to complete your tasks....At no small cost however....So if you wish to back out of this operation... {He points a clawed hand to the door} The Zikah Guard would happily escort you back to the Docking Bay."

Campaign#10PostSubject: Re: Building the team.   Tue Oct 10, 2017 11:37 pm

The Spartan instantly turned to face the female vampire that had just threatened him. He looked right down at her before retaliating:
"Oh, would you look at that now. A wee lassy lookin' like she's up to high doh. Well I'll let ye in on something love, frankly in my most humble opinion yew honestly look like a twig! So shut it before I'm encouraged ta skelp yer wee behind!"

The sudden sound of a robotic voice caused Marcus to take his attention off the vampire girl towards one of the other strangers that was standing in the throne room. Marcus frowned at him and almost began to say something before another individual piped up and suggested that everyone shut it. To reinforce his point, the Zikah Guards drummed their spears that may have cancelled out any other noise of quarrel, and moments later the Viscount arrived.

Marcus turned to listen to the... lizard.. on what he had to say. He was thankful mostly due to there being a more detailed explanation as to what he was doing here, but also because something other than him standing around was finally taking place.

He denied any refreshments and continued to listen to the Viscount, about how Helix has allegedly worn both GSU and Imperium war efforts and and how they have assembled a team - him and those standing around him - to lead an unconventional retaliation against the growing, relentless virus.

The notion of death didn't scare him. Truth be told, all he wanted was an excuse to blow something up... it had been a while after all. So when the Viscount mentioned how some of them may die and an offer to leave, Marcus couldn't help but speak up yet again.

"With all due respect President Lizard man, dying ain't somethin' that's been all too much on my mind right nae, nor has it been since I ever joined the military. So yew just do me a favour and show me what I need'a explode and yew'll 'ave it done. Aye?"

His mask tilted to the side listening to both of the others speak. He had already declined the food due to not wanting to reveal his face but something about what the viscount had said was taking his toll on him. He liked the Spartans way of thinking of things but he preferred a more calm and calculated approach. His eyes under the mask betrayed what his mind was thinking as he stepped forward pulling out his blade. He stabbed it into the floor the metallic ringing echoing around the chamber. Even being one of the more lean and small ones here he commanded respect just by his stance and posture. His mask rotated to a deep purple as he knelt before the Viscount. 

"You have my sword in this battle." This voice was completely his own. It was deep and mechanical but still gave the hint of humanity. As he rose his mask changed back to a dull green. 
"When do we begin?"

Campaign#13PostSubject: Re: Building the team.   Yesterday at 1:24 am

Up until now, Jonas had been silent.  He hadn't introduced himself, nor had he made any move to alert anyone to the stealthed biosuit he was wearing.  It was likely that the Spartan had seen him, if only in his thermal losses.  But with his ship touching his mind occasionally to reassure itself, he sent a calming thought, stepped forward, between the others, and knelt. With one fist resting gently on the floor and his head bowed, he gave his ship a signal, and through means undetectable by digital technologies, and inconsistently by magic, the ship sent a signal back.  In response, the biosuit simply relaxed, leaving behind its patterned image of what was on the other side with a slight shimmer fading into an earthy brown, interposed with blue.

In essence, he decloaked.

"The Leverian Legion sends their regards, and their assistance.  I would be honored to work with these soldiers and be their eyes."  He couldn't keep the grin off his face as he halfheartedly wondered what the others would do with his sudden presence.  The Zikah had known he was there.  He would be getting a few chuckles out of them later.  In fact, that had been his plan.  To see what happens when the others don't have the whole picture, thus proving his worth by sheer shock and awe.

Campaign#14PostSubject: Re: Building the team.   Yesterday at 11:00 am

The spartan Marcus seemed eager to get into action much to the delight of the Viscount who was just as eager to carry out the operation.The Viscount did have some trouble following his accent.


He was pleased to see the vampire recruit Imperator Krassus had recommended for the team.She seemed loyal and reminded her soon to be teammates of patience in the court.The Viscount nodded to her and spoke. "It is alright Natalie-Ka...We are all....excited to start."


The masked figure stepped forward unsheathing his blade.The guard tensed sightly having their spears eased forward should they need to react. All of them simultaneously watched the figure thrust the blade into the floor of the Eyrie sending a metallic echo throughout the chamber,the Viscount was impressed at the respect this figure held despite not being a Imperial citizen himself.As he would remove his blade from the floor,the living metal of the hall repaired any damage done by overlapping it in a silvery liquid and solidifying. 

As Jonas appeared the Viscount smirked. "Glad you finally joined us." The guards in the room seemed to ease their stance.Giving pause to allow the rest of the team to process what happened.


--------


The Viscount tapped the rod against his chair and the room darkened as the upper glass windows closed off until the entire room was dark and lit only by the dim lighting of the flooring and the spears of the guard.


Suddenly holographic displays of the galaxy,a strange ship and extracts of battles currently taking place across the galaxy took form in a blue light that banished the darkness. The image of the galaxy flickered showing Helix borders,troop movements and more until stopping at a single image.One of a planet called Norma Prime.


"This world has gathered the interest of the Intelligence Forum,we have learned that it contains the key to locating the central core of Helix's server matrix....We sent various scouts to try and retrieve the key but they all....Well see for your self." He tapped a claw on the seat console and the image switched to a video recording that showed the first person view of a scout infiltrating a vast hexagon shaped complex built from a tangled mess of metals harvested from the now ruined city on the planet.


The elven scout gracefully evaded the seemingly endless patrols of Helix machines and traversed the labyrinth of hallways and factory levels to reach the center.


------


The Center was a vast open spherical room that contained a single object.Some kind of large rectangular box.It was over 95 meters long and 100 meters wide and hummed with a energy that caused the recon helmet's recorder to emit slight static as the scout watched it.The scout then shook as he heard something but before he could turn he was lifted up into the air and thrown down with brutish force causing a crack in the projection the camera recorded.The helmet somehow came loose and rolled a few centimeters from the scout's bloodied head stopping within view of a battered yet chiseled face broken and coughing as blood poured out of his nose and across cuts of his face. Without warning a metallic plate wider then the elf came crashing down upon him turning the Charlot Recon trooper into a sticky paste of blood and bone. The walker then turned on the helmet and it suffered a similar fate.


The recording ended.


----------


The Viscount took a deep breath.


"It is my belief that this fortress on Norma Prime holds a server that connects to the Helix network directly....If we can access this network we can find the hiding place of the Central core and destroy Helix at it's source.If we don't it would just wittle us down battle after battle. So I've decided to form this team of seemingly random individuals....."


The Viscount then polity asked


"Please introduce yourselves to one another,I've little doubt that you will rely on one another's support in the following few days.When you are all done we will show you what we would provide to allow you to complete the task."
