Mission: THE SKYE IS FALLING!
SITUATION
BUGBOTTOM SWAMP, SKYE, LYRAN COMMONWEALTH
Journal Entry #203
Things are not getting better.
The last place we expected to have to fend off an invasion was on Skye. Demonstrations, riots, and the occasional attempted secession? Sure. But an invasion by the Leaguers? Skye isn’t happy with the Lyrans. What makes the Leaguers think they’d be any more welcome? In any case, our babysitting job is on hold. Duke Kelswa-Steiner has called every militia and mercenary unit on-planet to Skye’s defense. IE doesn’t have a choice, and neither do we. And now we have our first mission. Seems the Leaguers have taken over an abandoned LAAF airbase in some swamp and have been bombing the capital. The duke wants it taken out, and we’ve drawn the Joker. Doesn’t help much that we’ve got a lance of Skye Rangers to keep an eye on us.
I hope it’s worth it.
