Tiny piloted the launch down to the surface of Gloire with with D’irt, Shee’ra, Ave and Beaker as passengers. They landed on the northeast continent near Crispy Lake about a mile from Cayenne’s farm. They then disembarked in the Esperanza Armoured Fighting Vehicle across land until they approached the farm.
They paused at a distance so the droyne could scan the area psionically for life forms. They discovered that there were a couple dozen perps in the area, some of them in an underground bunker.
Tiny pulled up to a fork in the dirt road where they discovered a recessed Fixed Weapon Emplacement. Ave emptied a hundred rounds of 12mm gauss cannon ammunition into it, destroying the pop-up fortification.
The gunfire alerted a pair of “farmers” who unwisely hopped into an All-Terrain Armoured Vehicle (basically a lightly armoured 4-wheel buggy). The peaceful farmers immediately went head-to-head with the AFV, mercilessly blasting their autocannon at our heroes. The rounds bounced harmlessly off the front armour slope of the eight-wheel tank, and Ave quickly destroyed their vehicle. She then heartlessly mowed down the helpless farmers as they attempted to flee on foot, while the droyne nonchalantly watched.
Tiny carefully drove the AFV up to the farm, destroying several more buggies along the way while Shee’ra took strategic shots with her Yeheal autorifle through the firing ports. They encountered a heavily armoured FEW that began melting away the hull on their tank with a powerful Plasma A Gun. Tiny parked the AFV behind a disabled ATAV while Ave crippled the 5-meter tall platform.
Ave then proceeded to blast hundreds and hundreds of rounds of gauss ammunition into the farm house, tearing down walls and slaughtering the people inside. Several retreated into the basement underneath.
They then dismounted and began clearing the root cellar, systematically slaughtering all hostiles in a diverse manner and NOT targeting any specific minorities first. Although it did seem as if Shee’ra gleaned some sort of specific enjoyment out of killing the lesbians armed with machine pistols, using her dewclaw to deliver the coup de gras.
Behind a false wall, they found the psionic Cayenne who assaulted the hapless beaker monkey, draining his physical energy to build a personal shield, but the team was able to quickly dispatch him with little effort. More mysteriously, a strange BLACK DROYNE escaped down a tunnel and fled in a strange spaceship.
Back in the bunker, they killed off the rest of Cayenne’s henchmen and uncovered a plot to breed sarchus as terrorist pets as well as a lab with a weapons grade Gloire Pox production lab.
They returned to their ship in orbit and debriefed Commander Kateway and CPO Jefferson. In fact, Ave gave a very heroic first-person account of how they saved The Island subsector from certain DOOM.
