We droped… we fell, into the planets atmoshpere. They fired wildly into space with their artillery, hitting few of our pods. A Very ineffective method of defense for our shock and awe. Our fleet engaged theirs. WE dropped to knockout their space artillery, it would quickly rip our carrier group into bits.
Our Ret-noffs penetrated the athmoshpere along with our pods. They swim through their airspace, like pirrahnas hunting for their next meal. They find a destroyer, lifting off, its sheilds still down due to the takeoff. They pierce through as a spear would flesh, ripping through the ship as a firery explosion engulfs it. They then break off to combate the mounting airiel defensive.
Our pod crashes into an escarpment. Below us, a fifty yard drop, and about three feilds, and one of their artillery defense complexes. A Bolt of pain flows through my body… The carrier that spawned us has been slain. They’re focusing fire on the fleet now. I recover my composeur, i turn to look at my bond sisters. They shake off the pain and form their blades.
A squadron of Ret-noffs heads toward the complex, we hitch a ride down the cliff. We get a running start, and leap off the eascarpment, grabbing onto the backs of the Ret-noffs as they nosedive down the cliff. The Ret-noffs fire upon Theronine armor engaging some of our infantry. They knock out two out of three of the mechs, we drop off the Ret-noffs to engage a deploying troop carrier. A gaurd tackles the mech, enraged at the death one of his brother, knocking it down, and destroying it.
I land on a theronine, my sword deep in his chest. A laser hits my shoulder, my softgel writhes in pain, but sustains, absorbing all the heat. My borther throws a bolt of plasontium at him, hitting the rifle. The solder draws his blade. We spar. I end up getting my arm slashed, and his blood on my sword. A bundle of vines grows into wound, sealing it closed. A charge of plastionium rips through the air, my breath crystillizes. The charge hits the carrier, knocking out it’s gun. The gaurd charges in, and bashes a Theronine with his sheilds. I finished off the last soldier. We head to the complex, now we have 2 gaurds and 4 hastatii sqauds.
We approch the base. A dead Ret-noff, crashed against the wall of the complex. Awat from the dead fighter, a hole melted into the wall. We’re sixtey feet from the hole, and take fire from the walls. Heavy laser fire. The gaurds faces their sheilds towards the fire. The sheild bearers join the gaurds to create a sheild wall. We press towards the hole, the fire increases. A Nibe fires a charge at an emplacement, disentigrating it.
Twenty feet. My sisters and i break away from the sheild wall, and leap onto the face of the wall and quickly scale it. A few of the defenders have swords drawn, as i reach the top. The first attacks me, i manage to knock out their footing and casue them to fall off the wall. A laser strikes me. My softgel confulses, dying. I drop to my spikes in pain. A sheild sister comes to my aid blocking the laser. a knight runs through the attacker. She replaces my softgel with her spare. We take the wall.
An explosion on the otherside of the complex. A squardron of Ret-noff spiral upwards above the base. and break apart into their pilots. They fall into the base and engage.
Our attacking force encounters a platoon of Theronine. They are joined by the pilots. I look over the wall into the feild. More of our infantry are aproaching. Two sucsessfull beetles were formed by deployed gaurds and scurrying towards us. They fire plastonium towards the large artillery pieces. The first bolt lands in the fray of battle, and the second hits an artillery piece. It still stands, and fires another round at our fleet.
I finally recover enough stamina to fight, and my hastatii jumps into the fray. The battle ensues. The beetles focus fire at target pieces. The first falls after four strikes. The second a Nibe aided in its destruction. And the third was knocked out by a sqadron of Ret-noff. After the complex fell, a City Siege Unit dropped. It’s massive body cause temors to ripple through the ground. The battle for this planet is just begining…
