    Warbrate's forces arrive in Lutrious. From the looks of the wreckage, nobody has come looking for survivors since we destroyed this colony. It begins building up rudimentary Hive clusters on the small planet.

    Cyberbrate continues working on the third encryption we've seen in Terran space. The first one is now completely unused. The second continues to be widespread over Moria, and remote parts of Umoja. Cyberbrate predicts that it will be able to break the encryption enough for a ship to pass for legitimate within six hours.

    The Swarm continues to flourish under our watchful Eye.

    I was looking for this thread.

    I've been wondering what our objective is at this point... our survival is not immediately threatened. We have Kingston on the ropes, is it time to go for the killing blow? We eliminated our other immediate threat, though the Protoss under Tassadar will need to be dealt with in time.

    Still, I don't like the idea of giving Kingston time to sit back and think. On the other hand, if he's backed into a corner, who knows what kind of shit he'll pull out. Hm.

    The only other Protoss world we know of for sure is Zhakul, some kind of library planet. We're not really sure how important it would be to them.

    The macabre party should totally come before we kill Kingston. It'd be a little silly to just dress up his corpse.

    I agree that we should do some long-range scanning of Aiur. Make sure that our cloaked Overlords come out of Warp well beyond the Aiur Defense Grid so we at least have a chance at getting some readings.

    Also another vote to check out the Library Planet; do it carefully.

    I already had one sci-fi crossover!

    Bernie and his brood are growing on their...filthy world. We try not to think about it.

    Most of the Terran communications are just chatter. The humans are frightened, as they have had no real news from us. ZergTV alerted them to a psychotic AI, Kingston destroyed one of its worlds, and then it's just been re-runs of Jay and Silent 'Brate: the Animated Series. They worry that either we or the AI is dead, and the other is preparing to strike.

    Kerrigan's last report was that Aiur had been fully retaken, and that her infested agents were being blocked out of strategic roles entirely.
    >> Anonymous 06/22/11(Wed)22:39 No.15356708
    We should help out Kerrigan. She's getting pushed out of power and soon the 'toss will be in position to fuck us over.

    Make contact and ask if she thinks an assault on Aiur would be a good idea at this point. Maybe we can get them in transit, like ambushing an enemy column in Total War.

    Labbrate is working on this. The skin's enhanced properties make tissue growth easier, but it's having trouble with the bones. It believes it is close.

    Our overlord slips into space over Zhakul as tidily as possible. It is a jungle planet, and we are detecting very odd readings on it.

    Along with jumpstarting our cloning program, perhaps we should think about what we want to say to the Terrans.

    The dropserver carefully passes our overlord as it edges closer to Zhakul. The scans show a green crystal approximately a quarter the size of Tsinoseng, surrounded by three Protoss. The crystal is glowing, and appears the be the source of the psionic readings. There appears to be a depression in the crystal large enough for a Protoss to walk into, though it does not go all the way through. The energy is building.

    Nargil and Gorn confirm our suspicions that this crystal's energy signature is Xel'Naga in origin.

    Have Kerrigan elaborate on these odds. The Dark Templar have been utterly annihilated, and the Protoss weren't in great shape after the Overmind got defeated. Granted, our broods aren't in great shape after taking out VoidGate, but Kerrigan's machinations have surely hampered any reconstruction efforts that the Protoss have undergone.

    prepare as many nukes as we can, if we can't take what we want, we scorch zhakul down to the bedrock.

    Alright, we can modify my plan so that once captured the Protoss will be take to Yoshus for Infestation.
    But the rest of the plan still stands for securing the Xel'Naga crystal and getting any useful information from the libraries.

    Recon first though, we need to find out what their planing, can we send some dropservers to scout out what the dyles been doing in regards to the UED?

    Creating a cordon is probably the most important part of the plan. Allowing them to escape or call for reinforcements would be a disaster.
