  1. Near the Spaceport Gellen's Heights, Sheratan Sheratan System, Tikonov Free Rebulic Space March 11, 3029 ____________________________________ The half burned out compact fluorescent bulb in the adjustable desk lamp gave off an inconsistent glow that would start flickering randomly as the ballast struggled to stay functioning, hardly the best light to do relatively delicate work by but it was better than the alternative. I turned and looked out the front window of the small motel room I had rented, the glow of numerous neon lights shone through the thin curtains and provided the on
  2. Site 187, Aegis Division compound Outskirts of Gellen's Heights, Sheratan Sheratan System, Tikonov Free Rebulic Space March 11, 3029 ____________________________________ I nodded slowly, it was a lot of information to digest and it would take some time for all of it to sink in, especially the tour itself. While I could easily navigate my way through the plethora of underground facilities right now, at least the portion we travelled through on our tour, within a few days most of the details would be hazy at best. My memory was something of a blessing and curse, I could very quickly

  4. Here's a .PNG file of a basic MegaMek map I created to show our base and immediate surroundings. I'll post the actual MegaMek map file next time I'm on my PC. Please feel free to add any additional info about Site 187 as you see fit.
  5. Site 187, Aegis Division compound Gellen's Heights, Sheratan Sheratan System, Tikonov Free Rebulic Space March 11, 3029 ____________________________________ "That's great to hear. We're short a few positions. What's your story?" inquired the man named Charles, the apparent commander of Aegis Division, as he lit a cigar with a practiced ease. "Well, it's a bit of a long story and I won't bore you with the details right now but in short I'm a Mechwarrior, I have my own 'mech, a 60-ton Merlin, and have roughly 15 years of combat experience, 11 of which has been mercenary/freelance
  6. Site 187, Aegis Division compound Gellen's Heights, Sheratan Sheratan System, Tikonov Free Rebulic Space March 11, 3029 ____________________________________ In the distance I could see the tell tale flash of lights indicating an emergency vehicle and it appeared to be approaching quickly. Unsure of what exactly the local laws were pertaining to emergency vehicles I made to pull over to give them ample room and thankfully I did. The oncoming vehicle was erratically swerving all across the road as it got closer it appeared as though the engine, or at least something under the hood,
  7. Gellen's Heights, Sheratan Sheratan System, Tikonov Free Rebulic Space March 11, 3029 ____________________________________ The sharp crack of a large caliber rifle firing echoed from the steep hills surrounding the local firing range followed a moment later by the metallic ping of a 0.50 cal (12.7mm) round punching straight through the armoured ferrosteel target. I let out a low whistle and let go of the rifle's grip, reflexively rotating my shoulder where the padded rifle butt had slammed back against it, I had heard that the Zeus Heavy Rifle packed a hell of a kick but those rumor
  8. Aboard the Athena, a civilian version of the Avenger-class dropship Leaving orbit, Errai II Errai System, Davion Space March 4, 3029 ____________________________________ The deck vibrated unnervingly beneath my feet, the usual steady thrum of a dropship engine was replaced by an irregular, almost strobe like pulsation that seemed to echo from side to side of the ship. Despite this, the captain and pilot of this ship seemed not to even notice, McCoy sat encompassed in a bevy of control panels, of which only a few appeared original, maneuvering the vessel single handedly through th
  9. [i]Near Louie's bar in Knight's Ward Major city on the Carrigan Continent, Errai II Errai System, Davion Space March 4, 3029[/i] ____________________________________ I had wandered the streets in this section of the city, referred to as the Knight's Ward by the locals though for no obvious reason, for the last few hours with no real aim, I still had a few more hours to kill before I was scheduled to meet up with the mysterious contact that was supposed to have information regarding who was supplying the local gangs. Supposedly this was also intended to be the smuggler that my brot
  10. Grail Lords DroST IVc dropship Gorgon Major city on the Carrigan Continent, Errai II Errai System, Davion Space March 4, 3029 ____________________________________ The dropship's engines gently wound down as the vessel settled onto its landing gear, with only the faintest traces of the morning light beginning to appear on the horizon the only illumination on the landing pad were the dropship's running lights and the green perimeter lighting indicating the TLOF area of the landing pad itself. A minute later the dropship's main cargo ramp began to lower and the myriad of floodlights
  11. Crash location of Grail Lords Combat Transport (Space) VTOL Somewhere on the Carrigan Continent, Errai II Errai System, Davion Space March 3, 3029 ____________________________________ We managed to get the damaged VTOL airborne within the 5 minutes that Leftenant Isla had given us, despite the engineers originally saying it would take at least 10 minutes, and were making our way out of enemy territory at a semi-respectable speed of around 65km/h. Nowhere near our usual top speed of 108km/h but with a heavily damaged engine and nobody willing to risk using the VTOLs' jet boosters i
  12. Crash location of Grail Lords Combat Transport (Space) VTOL Somewhere on the Carrigan Continent, Errai II Errai System, Davion Space March 3, 3029 ____________________________________ An elongated azure sphere of charged particles ripped through the forest canopy leaving a stream of ionized atmosphere crackling with energy in its wake. The PPC bolt engulfed several trees and a large rock in a cascading discharge of energy that left the surviving infantry hiding behind them probably defecating themselves a little. A few meters away a paltry amount of return fire was directed toward
  13. Near the crash location of Grail Lords Combat Transport (Space) VTOL Somewhere on the Carrigan Continent, Errai II Errai System, Davion Space March 3, 3029 ____________________________________ "Orlex, we've got a problem," called Emma on the comms a moment before a ruby red beam of coherent light blasted through the trees to the North. Without waiting I burst into a sprint moving as fast as the exoskeleton could, closing the distance to the clearing as quickly as possible, "I see that, I'm enroute what have we got Emma?" "A tank, they have a Blake damned tank in there. I
  14. Crash location of Grail Lords Combat Transport (Space) VTOL Somewhere on the Carrigan Continent, Errai II Errai System, Davion Space March 3, 3029 ____________________________________ "I'm not getting anything," said Vincent, "Leftenant I've tried everything from our own DMI channels to the local militia to regular civilian channels. This field communicator should be able to pick up something, we must be getting jammed." "Are you sure?" asked Leftenant Isla, "I'd normally be surprised if a local gang like this had jamming gear sufficient to block military channels, but after
  15. Aboard Grail Lords Combat Transport (Space) VTOL Somewhere on the Carrigan Continent, Errai II Errai System, Davion Space March 3, 3029 ____________________________________ I squeezed down on the trigger of the semi-portable autocannon that was attached to the underslung mount on the Golem exoskeleton's right arm, the whine of the motor winding up the multi-barrel assembly blended into the roar of the weapon firing as the gun began throwing 12.7mm (0.50cal) rounds downrange at an impressive 10 rounds per second. The armoured exoskeleton absorbed the recoil with ease and I could sw
