Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
08:05PM
There was an audible cry from the sky as Olde Watch ships came down from the upper atmosphere. Large battlecruisers came screamiing down. “THIS IS INNER WATCH. SURVIVORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO STAY WHERE THEY ARE. REPEAT, STAY WHERE YOU ARE. THIS IS INNER WATCH. SURVIVORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO STAY WHERE THEY ARE. REPEAT, STAY WHERE YOU ARE. WE WILL COME FOR YOU.” And almost immediately after that, the bombs started to fall. Cruisers flew at breakneck speed across the skies of this island of Palisade, over Persistence, and as they passed, bright lights were left in a straight line behind them for several miles. And they plummeted.

Tauny R.
 
08:07PM
Tauny looks around, upwards to where the ships came down. She huddles behind some of the rubble, confused by what is happening. Perhaps she should take that portal back…

Contact. And the explosion that followed could be felt as one massive tremor after another through the ground. These bombs fell safely away from wherever there were living beings, focusing only on areas heavy with these undead empowered by the Void. Waves of ANFE swept through the air as the explosions went off, sending waves of searing heat to incinerate them, leaving the ground red hot and blazing with fire.

… ^Just Sass’ luck! Waves of ANFE. She now forgets things, however, it does depend on how strong it is. Sass can remember fire is bad on her powerless body so she starts to move away from the fiery hot ground^

Fighters separated from the cruisers, as well as dropships that fell to ground far from the epicenter of the bombs as the cruisers pulled back for what would definitely be a secondary pass. With fighter jets sweeping across the skies, their guns and missiles firing into large, obscene clumps of undeath, these elite soldiers moved quickly. “This is Inner Watch! We’re here to help! Call out if you can!” From the dropships emerged large machines emerged that helped to move debris for the soldiers as they searched for people in the wreckage of Persistence.
 
Sassy would also be perfectly fine, since they weren’t bombing anywhere close to her.
 
Tauny R.
 
08:11PM
The chaos of the moment, loud noises, tremors in the ground, she couldn’t concentrate. Her eyes darted around behind those sunglasses, her iris swirling.

Boo would also be quite fine, as, again, Olde Watch will not bomb an area where they detect life signs. They were quite good at distinguishing between friend and foe. Inner Watch soldiers advanced, sweeping over the area. As the undead Void spawn came for them, they responded in kind, slashing at any that managed to sneak in close with ANFE-resonant blades, and firing ANFE screamer rounds to put them down. They spotted Sassy and others, and waved them closer. “We got living! Come on, folks!”

08:19PM
A separate ship could be seen coming down towards the surface. It was black, black as night. Doors opened up on the bottom of it, and only about a half dozen figures dropped from it, still a few hundred feet over the surface… But they landed with little disturbance. Far from the survivors, in the middle of a crowd of undead that had avoided the bombs… a dark figure stood. Black armor, with the imagery of bones and the heraldry of Olde Watch across its surface. The faceplate, a dire, fearsome black skull. Holding out her hand, General Franziska Krieger produced a blade of raw psionic might, the power of her iron-willed mind, and with her Psi-Ops Strike team, she charged. “FOR THE WATCH!”
 
Soldiers rushed to meet the survivors, covering them with warm blankets and ushering them towards their ships. “Go, go, go!”
 
Ally (Devon)
 
08:20PM
Ally stayed really really close to Joseph.

^Pew, pew, pew! Sass continues to shoot into the zombie crowd. She keeps up with the survivors, doing her best to protect them as she flies. She’s not going to let them die on her watch. Tradelord’s honor!^
 
Uhrmacher Allison Greene
 
08:27PM
After finishing her other business over in what was left of Consequence, and Twine, Officer Greene has had a busy night into the wee hours of the morning. Barely catching a few hours of rest onboard her rapid entry vehicle, she was awakened by the call to duty as more survivors were located in Persistence. The Olde Watch special forces soldier looked around to how many people were in the crew compartment with her. She had started out on this incursion with 20 men, barely enough to fill a platoon. Now she was down to 8, with deaths and injury taking many good men out of the fight. Now they were locked and loaded, getting ready to hot drop around the position of General Krieger. The aircraft was barely heard in the sky as it appeared, four ropes dropping down as the 9 person squad rappelled down the ropes and started to set up a perimeter. Ally was the last one down, instructing her pilot to stay on site and continue to scan for more survivors. Once she hit the ground, she instructed her team to cover Kreiger as she opened up a com. “Ma’am! We’ve come to offer fire support.”
 
spider Gwen
 
08:27PM
The ghost spider looked at the zombies around the place ” Are we in Walking dead ?” She stood up straight placing both of her hands on her waist
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
08:28PM
The Inner Watch soldiers led their band of survivors to their landed dropship, where there were many others huddled together. “Get in the seats!” There were, in fact, rows and rows and rows of seats for them to get buckled in. Soldiers began seating people themselves, especially those that seemed much too weak to move on their own.

Tauny R.
 
08:30PM
She found a seat and let a handsome soldier help her get buckled in. It wasn’t so different from home she realized laughing out loud.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
08:30PM
The arrival of others to their location caused only the briefest of pauses as the masked face of Krieger looked skyward. Once Greene was on the ground, she was given a light nod. “Do as you will. We are drawing attention away from evacuees to get them safely off planet. And we are going to repeat this several times before the night is done.” That was all she said as she swept her psionic blade through the clavicle of an approaching Voidspawn.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
08:32PM
^Once everyone is in, Sass bolts in. She figures she cannot use the coin anymore since ANFE is around… Or she doesn’t know logic right now. Bets on the latter. Anyways, she takes a seat and she buckles up^

Another grouping of soldiers arrived at the dropship with one last group of survivors that they helped get buckled in. Other ships were already shooting back up into the sky. “We’re good on this sector! They’re moving on to the rest of the island!”
 
Tauny R.
 
08:33PM
The woman gripped the arms of the seat and held on for dear life. Her abilities were of no use now.

08:36PM
Even with as hard and as fast as they’d hit, down here, in the thick of it… Krieger was reminded of just the other evening. That had been an enclosed space, but now… Even in the open air, they were… everywhere. Every time she swung her blade, another clawed at her armor. Every time she stretched out a gloved hand and clenched a fist to crush them into paste, more filled in those gaps. Even with 7 other Psi-Operatives at her side doing the same, and the arrival of Uhrmacher Greene… They… They were everywhere.
 
Uhrmacher Allison Greene
 
08:36PM
The Watchmaker nodded in response, switching her comms over to TEAMCOM. “You heard the General boys and girls. Fire for effect, draw fire away from the civvys.” There was clicks of static as confirmation of her order as the other specops members concentrated on firing and covering one another. A trio of grenades was tossed as a gaggle of undead exploded into viscora and gore, while scores fell under the combined firepower of several soldiers using screamer ANFE rounds on the magic zombies. Allison herself moved like the wind, finding a car to stand on top of as she took the high ground to keep firing.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
08:39PM
The dropship took off, launching itself at gut-wrenching speed towards the battlecruisers as they came back around. Soldiers went around to the rows of seated passengers. “We’re going to group up on the battlecruisers, people! We are going to get off this boat, move you to a secure area on the ship, and then withdraw, okay? We are headed towards Planet IV! There are no undead there! You will be safe!”
 
“After that… It’s up to you. The General doesn’t want you people down here.”
 
“But we get it. You’re people. Ya got hopes, ya got dreams. People ya care about. Krieger… she don’t get that. If you end up coming down here again, though, it better be to fight.”
 
“But, don’t tell the boss we said that, she’d have our necks.”

Uhrmacher Allison Greene
 
08:48PM
The special forces soldiers didn’t stop firing until the civilian transports were gone, and even then it was a brief lull as they each took towards reloading. Greene had them form up around the car that she was standing on, the 9 person squad creating a defensive box in which they could fire on all sides. Even has dozens of zombies fell to their combined power, 3 zombies appeared to take the spot that one of them fell. Feeling the oppressive numbers dawning on them, the team shifted to shotguns as they tactically fell back to a more defensible location.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
08:51PM
Once the dropships were docked, the doors opened again and soldiers helped people from their seats. Inside the battlecruiser, they could see lines of people moving at a brisk, but not too rushed pace towards a few hallways. “You’ll be safe here, folks. Some of the cruisers are going to make one more bombing run, and then cover us as we get the hell outta here.”
 
On the ground, Krieger had lost three Psi-Operatives. When she wasn’t looking, a group of them were blindsided by a clump of the Voidspawn that came surging at them as a large wave nearly 15 feet tall. They were just… crawling over each other! Squeezing past each other, clawing ,grabbing, biting! She felt their minds go silent… “GREENE. FALL BACK.” She called out to the Uhrmacher as her own ship came swooping down low. With one more sweep of her blade, the General JUMPED into the air an inhuman 60 feet and kept on ascending towards the ship with her remaining Psi-Operatives. Onboard, the ship’s guns started to mow down other approaching Void zombies as they got nearer to Greene, giving her a window of escape. Overhead, the battlecruisers could be seen coming in from the north… prepared to bomb again, this time on the freshly evacuated areas.

Somewhere still on land, a large rust-colored wolf still lurks. Thick, grey dust covers its legs and belly, giving it an almost ghost-like quality. The same dust appears caked around its muzzle and down its chin and neck, clumping the fur in dark, wet patches that look disturbingly like blood mixed with dirt. Much larger than your average wolf, closer in size to a tiger than a wolf, it’s a wonder that it’s somehow managed to go unnoticed. The wolf stalks through the twisted buildings, though its unclear whether its avoiding or stalking the undead that still wander about.
 
Uhrmacher Allison Greene
 
09:01PM
With the confirmation that evacuation procedures were complete, Greene would indeed head the call of the General to retreat. “Big bird, it’s time for a hot pick up.” She called over the comms to her own ship in the sky, and her pilot would respond in kind and pressing keys on the console. A magnetic recall system started, a experimental method of pulling assets into a plane without it landing. Quickly, in pairs, Officer’s Greene men were being pulled into the air and up 100 feet before being swallowed up by the rapid entry vehicle. Once the last pair were half way up, Allison would activate the transportation system on her belt; the technology within beaming her back up in a series of light. Luckily all 8 of her men survived almost unscatched. “Copy that General, my men are off the ground.” She replied through the comms, moving up to the copilot seat so she could see the devastation that dominated the lands.

09:04PM
The battlecruisers passed over Persistence again, dropping their bombs all in a line as they did so, before they went shooting back up beyond the clouds. The same ships carrying the survivors also made their way up. Below, the bombs touched down and detonated, the burning balls of white light exploding outwards with an ANFE wave and then that searing hot fire, leaving craters of fire several feet deep and a hundred feet across.

And yet… The fires would find themselves trodden over and snuffed out as the ashes of the Voidspawn that used to be occupy that spot were kicked up by the feet of just… so many more. So many more. So, so many more…
 
Now the battleships held position over Persistence, high in the upper reaches of the atmosphere. Survivors were led to large halls with more than enough for the hundreds of thousands of them to gather and sit with blankets. Food and water were passed out to them, and medics went around tending to injuries big and small.

“The General doesn’t want your help.” The one soldier that had been with them the whole way spoke up, shrugging. “She considers anyone that isn’t Olde Watch at the moment to just be a… liability.”

The sound of the ships overhead sends the wolf back into the shadows, hiding. However, the distant sound of bombs would drive it back out again. Paws pounding as it tries to escape the bright lights and loud blasts of the bombs. Thankfully, the wolf had enough sense to keep away from the epicenter of the battle.

09:14PM
The first Watchmaker shook her head as she watched the battle underneath, it was ugly war that she was sadly sort of use too. Still it wasn’t time for sediment, there were more survivors in the mist of this and she would find them. Sitting back in her chair after sending Gen. Krieger a private communication, she closed her eyes and sighed; the images of void zombies burned into her mind. In the back her men talked smack through the comms, talking about kill count or epic shots they took. It was good, that meant that morale was still decent among them. “Flight LT. We’ve done what we can here, let’s move to Consequence.” Then she addressed her squad. “You got a few minutes. Make sure your 5 by 5 and the person across you. We’ve lost a lot of good men and women around and I dont wanna lose anymore to stupid mistakes.” They responded in a cacophony of ‘Aye ma’am’ and proceeded to check their weapons and armor, sealing any breeches while others checked weapons for malfunctions. The REV soared through the sky now at subsonic speeds, on course to Consequence.

“Huh… Figures… Me, I’m human. Born and raised.” He shrugged. “Now, I don’t really hold it against anyone if they’re… special. But that doesn’t account for just throwing caution to the wind.” He looked at Alexa, puzzled. “Does it matter if its a normal enemy or not? Do you dive into a swimming pool different if its got tap water in it instead of all that chlorine and stuff?”

The wolf skids to a stop, hearing movement in the distance. Her ears twitch this way and that, listening as she backs slowly back into the shadows between two broken slabs of stone. It doesn’t sound the same as a void zombie…it has a different sort of movement. Not alive, but also not undead. Mechanical? Her nose twitches as she tries to catch the scent of it.

“Anyways… We should get you lot figured out. Got new orders.” The soldier put his cigarette out and walked off. Everyone aboard the Inner Watch battlecruisers, far above the ruins of Persistence, saw a screen come on. It bore the image of General Franziska Krieger sitting behind a black desk. Her iron-like gaze stared out. “People of Hellifyno…”

If this is not what you prefer… Then find refuge in our solar system all the same. We are prepared to equip you with ships, pilots, and supplies to help you in these troubling times.

Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:27PM
“OOOOOKAY PEOPLE!” Soldiers started to usher people from the halls to nearby doorways, leading to a separate docking bay. “We got transport vessels for people that wanna head elsewhere in the great wide solar system! If ya don’t wanna go to Olde Watch IV on Planet IV, this is your stoppin’ point! We HIGHLY suggest that you DON’T take our ships and supplies BACK DOWN TO HELLIFYNO. It ain’t safe! So ya can’t go home, but ya gotta get the heck outta here! With us, or on your own!”

We have done our best, our land has ANFE on it, and… ^Shrugs^ I just can’t see what else is there other than just wait on Dionne.

09:28PM
*jack picked up a Piece of metal and it melted into his hand, sliding onto his face, forming a clown mask, but very much scarier, its eyes stared out and the teeth were pieces of jagged metal*
 
Ally (Devon)
 
09:28PM
Ally remembered jack from somewhere, she just couldn’t put her finger on it.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:28PM
“Actually, ma’am.” A soldier cleared his throat. “ANFE doesn’t have any lingering effects. Its a soundwave, ya see?”
 
Alexa
 
09:28PM
I got people that can move … others in critical condition … – she sighs deeply – I can´t move without them. Wait, what´s ANFE?
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:29PM
“Also, the General said that the AM weapons we tried ta use on the damn planet got dispersed… But ya ain’t hear that from me.” Looking to Alexa, the soldier held up his rifle. “Oh, see, ANFE’s an invention that lets us nullify magic shit— I mean, uh… magic. Lets us nullify magic. Magic ain’t, uh… shit. I mean, this void magic shit is shit, but, uh… I’mma… I’mma go now?” He walked off nervously.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:29PM
^She nods but that’s not what she meant. Too tired to explain things^ I’ll be on the ghoul colony in Dionne. I’ll be offering my assistance from there. However, I’d like an audience with General Fran if she has the time right now.
 
Alexa
 
09:30PM
– she narrows her eyes at the soldier – FREEZE!
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:30PM
He paused.
 
“Look, lady, don’t turn me into a popsicle or somethin’, eh? I ain’t mean nothin’ by it!”
 
Kaito Tsuikia The Bored
 
09:31PM
Kaito picks through some rubble of a destroyed building. “Hmm. Interesting.” He says as he sees what used to be a Zombie. “Looks like what was in Consequence.” He chuckles. “Damn thing tried to attack me but also got turned to dust.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:31PM
Knock it off, Alexa. Soldier’s tryin’ to work and help. Let him do his thing.
 
Alexa
 
09:31PM
Do you even realize that most people here are full magical, like me! SHUT UP! – she raises her voice- You call and plea, saying how people should trust you, but then blab this shit out?
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:32PM
^She facedesks into a nearby wall or seat^
 
^Most likely a wall^
 
ALEXA! Quit putting your head up your ass!
 
Ally (Devon)
 
09:32PM
Ally kept glancing back at jack, trying to figure out where she remembered him from
 
Kaito Tsuikia The Bored
 
09:33PM
Kaito would vanish
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:33PM
“Look lady, ya gotta understand…” The soldier was sweating. “We got magicals in Olde Watch, too! But they ain’t actually ever, like… doin’ shit, ya know? Elves and crap, that’s all! I got a cousin whose girlfriend’s brother’s got an elf for a wife an’ everythin’! I ain’t prejudiced! Hell, a guy in my bowlin’ club is a fuckin’ GNOME! Ever seen a gnome? Disturbin’ly small?”
 
“Most he does is make the ball turn invisble!”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:33PM
So you’re like the white guy who has a black friend? It doesn’t sound like a sound argument.
 
Look/
 
Red Rawling
 
09:33PM
The wolf sniffs, finally smelling something living. Pushing past a pile of rubble, she spots Kaito. A low growl rumbles through her throat.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:34PM
Can we please knock this bullshit off!
 
Alexa
 
09:34PM
– she shakes her head and mutters something under her breath – Just tell your General I need to talk to her. And I know you´re not to blame.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:34PM
Alexa, say sorry to the soldier. He does want to do his job.
 
Elyss Sieghart
 
09:34PM
“Eh? Someone being loud?” She mutters warping next to Sassy with a portal coin just to hear some shouting going on. She turns her head looking at Alexa. “Oh, it’s you being loud.” She looks to Sassy. “Ya was taking long, so I came to check up on ya.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:35PM
Soldier, sir, it’s not a sound argument but, again, that’s not the most important thing right now but I’d like to just point that out. ^She then hugs Elyss tightly^
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:35PM
“…My boyfriend’s black, actually.” The soldier blushed. “Look, all’s I’m sayin’ is… We spend so much time not seein’ you folk. We spent time gettin’ fed shit like you wasn’t people, just monsters. Now, I know better than that, but… Ya know? Language an’ all. S’hard to regulate. I’m tryin’ the best I can, ladies…”
 
Cain Chaos / Syvastienaos BloodFang ( Coma)
 
09:35PM

Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:36PM
“A guy can only do so much, anyway! Like… I can’t getcha an audience with Krieger. I ain’t got that kinda pull. If I did, I’d be sittin’ behind a desk, not gabbin’ with you two broads.”

09:36PM
*jack Stretched his mouth, the jagged teeth making sparks, he picked up another piece of metal and ate it, his teeth cutting through it like butter* what happened here? I was out shopping for weapons and a giant rock fell on me* he motioned towards the rock he had came out from beneath*
 
Alexa
 
09:37PM
– she nods and offers the soldier a tired smile – Do your job, whatever it is that you´re doing …
 
Ally (Devon)
 
09:37PM
Ally sighed. “My name’s not Google! Don’t ask me that question.” she said
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:37PM
It’s okay. You’re learning, we’re learning, we’re all learning. ^Speaking to him with a smile^ I’m sure that’s not true. I’m sure there are things you can do that we cannot like being able to withstand AM and ANFE. Just as an example. Humans can truly know what it means to have humanity. They are more humbled by their mortality. They are afforded to age whereas I cannot. That’s pretty amazing!
 
jack
 
09:38PM
*jack looked at ally* it was a general question..
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:38PM
“Also I got no clue who the fuck you two are to be askin’ to see Krieger. Dunno why ya would wanna. She’s a right creepy bitch, ya know?” With permission to leave now, the soldier scurried off. “You two getcha selves somewhere safe, okay? Don’t make us hafta come back down here ta save ya asses!”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:38PM
You’re gonna have to. Tweedledee does what Tweedledum does… ^She chuckles^ Bye!
 
Ally (Devon)
 
09:38PM
“Still. I don’t know the answer.” Ally said

*jack shrugged his metallic shoulders, making sparks once again* I dont know…*then he looked at d.j more closely* you smell metallic…
 
Alexa
 
09:40PM
– she chuckles to both comments and waves to the soldier- Keep yourself alive! – she nods to Sassy, still keeping an eye on the soldier – You go first. I´ll try to bing the most severe cases over … about twenty or so …
 
Elyss Sieghart
 
09:40PM
“What the fuck is going on?” She rubs her head. “Did that dumb ass just calling us not human? How does that even make sense?” She starts cracking her knuckles. “Can I chase em down and beat em up?” She mutters.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:40PM
Refugees were either remaining seated on the ship, while others, visibly uncomfortable with all of the Olde Watch humans around with guns… They were leaving. Getting onto ships. Flying away into the darkness of space. Other soldiers were continuing to pass out water. “Okay! Okay! People! HEY! ATTENTION!” A soldier climbed onto a chair, waving his hands around. “Once the last of the people that wanna leave are gone, we are going to Planet IV! Ya hear that? Last chance to get off!”
 
Ally (Devon)
 
09:41PM
“Wait.. you tried to kill me once.” Ally said

No, you’re not harming soldiers. They’re trying to help us and we need to help them. Now, let’s go to Dionne and prep. Alexa, your serverely hurt people need to go to Olde Watch IV where there’s better care.

“You did try to kill me.” Ally said

09:43PM
Hence why I wanted to see if I can talk to the General .. woman … I could get them stable and okay to travel, she could pick them up and ship them to planet IV.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
09:43PM
Oi… I don’t think the General is incharge of that. Talk to one of the soldiers.
 
D.J
 
09:43PM
um ok
 
Elyss Sieghart
 
09:44PM
“Well, you are a tradelord Sassy. I’m pretty sure it shouldn’t be that hard to get an audience.” Elyss rubs the back of her head. She shrugs. “Guess I should head on back though. I’m not equipped to handle these zombie bastards. Don’t want to cause any trouble.”
 
Ally (Devon)
 
09:44PM
Ally rolled her eyes at jack

09:44PM
Ohh joy …. – she pulls out a notepad and scribbles something on a piece of paper, then looks around for the soldier that just spoke – Oiii!
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:44PM
The last of the people were leaving on their own ships, leaving the majority of the refugees behind. Soldiers were starting to grow thin now as they had the wounded being treated, and others sat down and comfortable for the trip. “OKAY! We’re heading off for Planet IV people!”
 
Cain Chaos / Syvastienaos BloodFang ( Coma)
 
09:44PM
/;/ Cain grunts, but tries to hide it with a sigh as his right hand went to his left shoulder where the sphere absorbed into his body that his mother left him behind after her dying in the Slayer war. He rubbed at the site trying to make the ache go away. /;/

A totally different soldier, a LADY soldier, was walking by Alexa as she yelled. “OI YOURSELF!”

Oh. She’s just gone like that. Well then.
 
Ally (Devon)
 
09:47PM
“Sorry.” Ally said. “Not sorry.” she mumbled under her breath
 
Alexa
 
09:47PM
– she turns to Sassy and rolls her eyes – Listen … I got wounded, critical, resistant to magical healing and I ran out of pretty much everything that includes conventional medicine. These are the coordinates. – she hands the woman a piece of paper – You´ll find them in the second floor. They´re scared and need food and water also. Please help them off the planet.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
09:48PM
“…Second floor? Where? Down there?” She pointed back down to the planet.

09:50PM
Pretty much … – she sighs deeply – Most of them are in no condition to move … or escape … I pulled them out of crumbling buildings, but with the situation going south fast … they´ll die soon. I use a portal coin to reroute and get it and out without having to go through the zombie horde.

09:51PM
“We did scans of the area for life-signs before we had people touch down, miss. If they weren’t dead when we landed, then we got them, same as we got you. Might just be on a different ship.” The soldier gave her a funny look.

Uhrmacher Allison Greene
 
09:56PM
Soon enough the Rapid Entry Vehicle escorting Uhrmacher Greene and her squad got into Olde Watch air space, clearing with the air controller as they touched down in a local airfield. Maintenance teams came over and started to fuel up the plane while a troop transport waite to ferry the group of 9 over to HQ. A series of five armored trucks rolled down the short path, mounted guns opening up on the zombies just enough to clear a path where the forward trucks with plows cleared the path. Soon enough they rolled up to Uhrmacher HQ, where the fight with the space void zombies was a completely different story. Here heavily armed soldiers were firing high capacity guns blessed by Gaian, thanks to the efforts of Greene and the original 20 men she squaded up with. They torn through Consequence, Persistence, and other places searching for those previous residence of the city of Civalo’ki. Including around a dozen clerics/priests that still retained the ability to bless mortal weapons with such a power. Up until this point the blessing were being given out to priority soldiers for defense in key areas; starting with the location the Gaian’s were in. But orders rained in from up above and now her and her squad were being given priority. Along with any other Urhmachers should they choose to accept. Allison Greene was not going to turn down this opportunity for better firepower for her and her men; so the 9 man squad strolled in file into Uhrmacher HQ

General Joseph R. “Cyclone” Adams
 
10:00PM
Joseph would look around, and he would get up.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
10:00PM
If Joseph wanted, he could just be rescued by Olde Watch recently and taken up to their ship in orbit ABOVE Persistence, far from danger.
 
Where things were safe.

But Joseph decided to stay here.

Joseph was also entitled to his decision to remain on the ground, alone, probably surrounded by ruins, with undead, flesh hungry, spirit corrupting void zombies from the edge of the solar system.
 
Ally (Devon)
 
10:01PM
Ally got ready for a fight
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
10:02PM
“HEEEEEEY!” Soldiers pointed their weapons at Ally and Jack both. “We ain’t about to have A BAR ROOM FIGHT ON OUR FUCKIN’ SHIP!”
 
“We will eject your asses into orbit before you fuckers start killin’ each other, ya hear? Cut the shit!”
 
“There’s GODDAMN ZOMBIES DOWN THERE! And you’re UP HERE. SAFE? And about to kill other people?”

With all things taken care of, the Inner Watch ships began to peel away from Hellifyno, heading towards the next planet in this solar system – Planet IV. Where all the occupants would be safe from the Void. If they didn’t want to leave Persistence, however, it was highly recommended that they get off now. Otherwise… Those that wanted to head to Planet IV could just sit back and enjoy the ride.
