Sensing something important, you and Hertz take your position along the trench wall.
After a bit of waiting and a lot of nervous shifting, the Company Warrant Officer turns the corner at the other end of the trench and begins shuffling down the ranks. He is a large, stocky man, wearing a wide-brimmed shrapnel helmet and outlined in a grey-fur cloak. From his hip sways a large sabre, and an automatic pistol is seen sticking from a wooden holster-case.
His voice rings loudly.
"Men, aerial reconnaissance during the past few days has revealed a large enemy buildup along this sector. Artillery has been spotted being readied in the rear echelons, including a number of super-heavy railguns. HQ has thus mandated that the forward trenches be doubly-manned for an indefinite period. While we cannot say that any offensive action has been planned for sure, you are hearby ordered to be at your utmost alertness until the ranks are cycled. As such, you must change your eating and sleeping schedules accordingly. We will relay further orders and information as they become available. Dismissed."
Without a further word, he turns the corner and sets off down a communications trench. You break rank, and wonder where you should take your positions at. Hertz will follow you, although he is suggesting you try to meet up with your other buddies.
