Masson watched Rodes cover her right, peaking around the corner of a pile of rocks marking the beginning of what was a small hill. On her left was a thick patch of jungle. Not that the jungle wasn´t thick where she was standing now. Not that this entire planet couldn´t be called infested and polluted by plants. So here she was again, in a different patch of the Niemandszone, still running after some alien tech. After Da Geek had analyzed the data acquired from the previous mission it became apparent that there were even more alien techno-devices hidden in the area she had now set foot into. He was really excited about all this, to her the whole thing seemed strangely staged. The data indicated that there were five devices of which four were valuable for the mission. They had to be activated one after another in a certain sequence… well it really seemed oddly staged. But that wasn´t her problem. She´ll let Da Geek handle this stuff. What she was here for was to handle once again Yu Jing forces roaming the area, also running after those alien devices. ‘Let them’, she thought, ‘I´ll make sure they´ll be shot in the process.’

This mission was probably going to be tougher than the last one. The Nomads had found out that PanO had also gotten wind of the devices and were already on their way to have a look themselves. She wanted to be gone by the time they arrived. Time was thus of the essence.

‘Delcour’, she whispered into her comm device, ‘proceed for triangulation device alpha’. Delcour, the units engineer, had been briefed by Da Geek and would perform the triangulation, starting on the right flank. Da Geek himself was off for some other mission this time around. Their allies, the Nomads, hadn´t felt the need to explain themselves. She didn´t mind, she didn´t like him anyway. ‘Bisbois you cover him’, she added, ‘fill the jungle with lead, let´s see if some Jings are lurking further ahead.’ Accompanied by the comforting sound of an HMG deforresting the area Delcour advanced to the first alien device and began working on it. A scream up ahead indicated that Bisbois had actually hit something somewhere in the jungle. So the Jings were already there. ‘Seems like we´ve got company’, she stated the obvious.

Then she heard it. At first she thought it would be some of those strange birds living in the trees but there was an odd artificial bytone to it. The sound grew louder, more threatening and then she figured what it was. ‘Merde!’, that being french for ‘shit’, and then, ‘I’ve got AD troops coming down right next to my position!’ Next she heard the unmistakable ‘thud’ of an AD troop hitting the ground to her left. She peered into the thick jungle but couldn’t see a damn thing. ‘de Lange do you…’, but she was interrupted by de Lange who was positioned to her left flank but a bit further ahead. De Lange, as always all coolness went, ‘got visual on a Tacbot, opening fire’. Then she saw the damn thing, the problem being, the damn thing saw her, too. ‘ALEPH?’, went through her mind along with a bullet to her gut. She hit the floor, holding her stomach. This was going to be a rough ride to the other side. She heard Rodes screaming, ‘Lt Masson is down! I repeat, Lt Masson is down!’ Abel chimed in, ‘de Lange got the Tacbot, but there is another Tacbot flying in. It shot de Lange! I’ll try to get closer, it hasn’t discovered me yet.’ She heard HMG-Fire but it wasn’t one of theirs. It sounded like ALEPH, ‘must be the Tacbot’, she thought. Slowly she tried to roll on here side to see what Rodes was doing. He was crouched right next to her, wide eyed and obviously scared. He quickly glanced at her but didn’t seem to stomach the blood flowing out of the hole in her belly.

There were more screams in the thick of the jungle. ‘Someone must take care of that Tacbot, and soon’, she thought. Again she heard Abel over the comm, ‘I’m closing in, I think I’ll get a good shot at it’, he said while the Tacbot waltzed through the jungle guns blazing. She heard Abel opening fire, but he did not cope with the return fire. The Tacbot went on, shot Delcour to bloody pulp. Manseau went next, then there was only silence. She looked over to Rodes and saw that his fear had turned to full-blown panic. ‘Where is it!? Where is it!?’, he screamed and then it came, breaking through the thick foliage on their left flank. She was too weak by now to roll over again, thus watched Rodes run like a rabbit followed by hundreds of bullets. The thing almost ran past her, but then it suddenly stopped. Lying on the ground she watched its servo-powered heels turn around slowly. It took two long steps toward her, bowing down. She felt the cool touch of a metallic hand, a sharp pain as the electric current began to flow, then nothing.

Francis Bellanger took over command. Rodes had been shot by the Tacbot soon after Masson died, but then the Tacbot went into the crossfire of the Garous ending its rampage. The Garous and Bisbois managed to prevent the incoming squad of Celestial Guards reaching the objective until PanO-Troops made an appearance and it was time to go.

Hugo Dupont
Well he was used to rough terrain, but this was ridiculous. At times the jungle was so thick Hugo was barely able to see his own feet while plowing through the lush green. It was also hot as hell in this green sweat incubator, hot like his lieutenant. Her name was Véronique Masson, a tall blonde Métro, stunning looks and stunning leadership skills, the kind of lieutenant who cares for her contingent but doesn´t loose sight of the mission objectives to fulfill. He was contemplating the perfect shape of her athletic body when suddenly her voice filled his head out of nowhere. “Dupont, you there?”.
He cringed as if she might have read his thoughts, before remembering the small electronic device stuffed in his ear. “I´m almost at the rendezvous point”, he replied stepping out of a particularly dense part of jungle, giving him a clear view of a small hill up ahead. He glanced about the place he was very likely to die within the next minutes as adrenalin began pumping through his system. “Go for it”, Masson said accompanied by small bursts of gunfire and screams somewhere ahead in the thickness of Pradiso green. He checked his HMG one last time and went for the hill.

Intelligence provided by the Nomad Nation indicated that Yu Jing had discovered some alien devices deep in the middle of the Niemandszone. The objective was to get hold of the information hidden in one of these devices and upload it to a Nomad Ship waiting in orbit. Naturally Masson hadn´t given a flying fart, they were Ariadnans after all, so the plan was to kick Yu Jing butt hard and fast before they could check the alien artifacts. Then they would have one of those Nomad geeks have a look at those alien things, the emphasis still lying on kicking Yu Jing butt of course.

The screaming and shooting was just a distraction to give Hugo the edge as he was reaching the hill and following it at its foot. “Contact! Wu Míng!”, he screamed, opening fire at the poor guy he´d just spotted between patches of green. Using the foot of the hill for cover he closed in on the Wu Míng already hugging the floor in an attempt to escape the stream of lead covering the area. Hugo ran past the downed Wu Míng finishing him off with one last burst, reaching another outcrop of the hill. He peered round the hill and spotted a whole squad of Celestial Guards in various states of confusion along with a Yudbot. Again he let his HMG do the talking. He wasn´t a good shot, but that wasn´t necessary. His HMG made up for that in number of bullets and also fortuna smiled at him. Two Celestial Guards fell to the onslaught of bullets, but that wasn´t all. Somehow one of the stray bullets flying round found its way into a squad of Kuang Shi, hidden further in the thick jungle, the skull of one of those poor bastards, to be more precise. Well, Kuang Shis have the bad habit of exploding on their demise, so almost the whole squad was wiped out in an instant. As Hugo in awe watched the bits of Jungle and Kuang Shi flying about, he realized that would be the split second of distraction that would cost him his life. The remaining Celestial Guards opened fire at him. An excruciating pain in his knee exploded and he found himself face down, lying in the mud. He lifted his head trying to focus the incoming Celestial Guards. “Dupont checking out”, he said forcing a smile, right before the Guard knifed him. Meanwhile his comrade Brisbois had deforrested the whole area with gazillions of bullets, felling the enemy Hsien commander in the process. The Yu Jing were running for their lives. Now it was time to bring in the Nomad geek for those alien artifact thingies…

Ariadna wins and loves the Paracommando HMG
