AAR (After Action Report) – Mission 1: Rebuild Galdera

After a massive attack on the capitol of Galdera, Hildebrandt forces were required to reassume their old home of AshForge, a relic long forgotten and left to decay. Now their only means of shelter it was up to Hildebrandt forces to reclaim the prize. A small recon detachment comprised of Knight-Keeper Markavious, Apollo Arlox RangeMaster Atlas-009, and Scribe Jaylen was sent to the nearest shield generator pylon for damage assessment and recon of the area. The recon team was met with little to know resistance until the final area in which they encountered a tardigrade monster. The team was able to quickly dispatch the monster, gather up recordings and data, and make their way back to AshForge to report their findings. //END REPORT

AAR – Mission 2: The Search for Answers

Now at full strength with Prince Arthur at the helm of the Vanguard, the team was tasked with a secret mission to explore the[[Hildebrandt Database Entry 280: The Fall of Galdera | ruins of Galdera]]. After a recon team reported a lack of human activity in the area, Lord Evelyn sent the Vanguard to ascertain the truth of the capitol and report back with their findings. Upon arrival to the capitol the team was met with a scene of utter destruction and a memory too fresh in their minds. Bodies littered the streets and surrounding structures. Among them were bodies of men in mixed-colored armor with weapons bearing the tell-tale glow of the Shenwa house. Upon reporting this to Lord Evelyn the Vanguard was reassigned to visit house Shenwa under the pretense of arranged marriage to daughter of Lord Shenwa, Lydia. The team made haste to the Shenwa capitol and spent the night to prepare for a day of pomp and circumstance. Meanwhile, Victor Forge overhears a troubling conversation from Maximillian. //END REPORT

AAR – Mission 3: Betrayal Among Houses

Once the frivolous happenings of the evening began to die down, Sir Arthur requests a meeting with Maximillian to discuss the findings of his capitol and confront him about the Shenwa weaponry discovered among the bodies. Markavious encounters a rather drunk Scribe of House Shenwa who ushers an eerie warning about Maximillian and coaxes him away to speak more privately. Apollo makes his way to a garden to participate in a more physical form of entertainment with blade and the Shenwa House Champion. Victor and Atlas make their way to the garden as well to participate. But a trap is afoot. Upon a sour meeting and false accusations by Maximillian regarding the attack on Fort Common (a Shenwa Banner-House), the order is given to have the members of House Hildebrandt arrested. With no fight, the Hildebrandt heroes relinquish their weaponry for fear of starting a war and surrender. Luckily, having met Scribe Lam, Markavious is able to coordinate a break out with Lam in the evening allowing the heroes to escape on their ship but not before encountering an odd, gun-toting, mercenary. The crew makes haste to Fort Common to discover the truth behind the alleged “Hildebrandt attack” and grant pardon to their names. A gruesome sight to behold was met by the heroes upon arrival to common. Many House Common soldiers lay dead as well as the same multi-colored armor mercenaries. Venturing further into the makeshift research facility they discovered bodies that had been ripped limb from limb among scores of derelict Immortal frames (See The Immortals). Quickly the investigation turned into a struggle for survival as the Immortals awoke and attacked the crew. They were victorious in their combat save for Atlas who was gravely injured. The Immortals had seemingly become infected by some sort of virus. With his constant quest for knowledge, Markavious recovered scores of holo-data in which he would present to House Shenwa to make them see the error of their ways and also, hopefully, freeing the other Hildebrandt captives in the Shenwa Capitol. A Bird was sent to both House Hildebrandt and House Kolta as the men departed from the graveyard that was once House Common. //END REPORT

AAR – Mission 4: A King’s Warning

Following the horrific events at Fort Common there was no time to waste as news of the escape had traveled and Shenwa diplomats were making their way to the House Kolta capitol to report the “Hildebrandt treachery” to the King himself. As quickly as they had arrived they were aboard a prototype craft capable of high velocites for minimum crew. With newly defected Scribe Lam in tow, the crew quickly made their way to The White City where they met with the King in his court before pleading their case to the High-keepers of House Kolta. The case was mostly a match of misinformation vs coldhard facts until a sledgehammer’s blow of evidence was delivered by Markavious with a holo recording taken straight from Shenwa/Common computers. The recording was that of rampant Immortals tearing apart people and immortals alike with vicious efficiency and the subsequent visit of the Hildebrandts themselves just before yanking the recording matrix. This new bit of evidence certainly changed the tone of the hearing from one of trivial drama to that of Imperial Security. Immediate lockdown overtook the room and an eventual visit from the King left the hearing on an eerie note. “Not one word of what has transpired in this chamber will ever leave here. You are never to speak of this to anyone upon pain of death…am I crystal clear?” His words hung in the ears of everyone present. After the, frankly, strange hearing the crew attempted to leave the capitol and were met with an unexplained grounding on their ship only to discover the next day that they were to meet with the King personally. A most notable honor. The dinner, however, was not just a dinner and was, instead, a mission briefing delivered by the King himself to investigate a celestial object of unknown origin that could be tied to the events at Fort Common. Both Hildebrandt and Shenwa forces would be made to participate on this sortie. And the next day the crew found themselves geared up and trading insults with the House they had lost all respect for in the crew hold of a Kolta dropship en route for something most certainly sinister. //END REPORT
