Greetings, field team. Remember Suburbia? An investigation team was going over the site, working on the assumption that the creature had escaped into the sewer system and would re-surface within a reasonable area and could then be contained. They were supposed to check in every hour and generally maintain eye-contact with another operative.

It's been two hours since our last communication.

In related news, we may have an answer as to why the hemophages we encountered looked so mutated and displayed abnormally resilient qualities. It appears we, and I repeat this is conjecture, may be dealing with Karlsteen's Brood. After 900 years of activity, one does tend to accrue some damage. We originally assumed they had been destroyed in Rio De Janiero in 1991 but it is possible they've simply gone underground in the most literal sense and we've just stumbled into their hiding place.

The foundational lay-out for the housing plan could have disrupted their tupor and woke them, which explains the abnormally high feeding pattern. They weren't gathering victims just for themselves, they were in a frenzied feeding binge to acquire enough sustenance for the entire brood, weakend from years of death-like coma. At last confrontation the Brood numbered 26 plus Karlsteen. You've personally seen to three. Most of them will be weak and famished. If the entire group awakens however, SysWatch helpfully informs us it will the largest hemophage activity spike in 73 years.

Unfortunately at this stage most of our ressources are dealing with the aftermath of Wonglei's Party or tending to the situation in Australia which has ground into stalemate, so while we'd normally drown the site in drones and foam grenades that just not an option at the moment. And sending in the national guard or the military would only be feeding the problem.

Some good news is that there's no grouchy gateguards at this cave system entrance, so you can wear the proper protective plate.

Since there's a minor chance you'll be going up against a class five hemophage and their personal brood, we've elected to throw caution to the wind and break open the emergency lockers.

The specialist gear is marked in teal.

We've also taken the libety of adding some of the ressource we've requisitioned from the Wonglei manor to our standard load-out. The man had quite an affinity for swords it would seem, and we've found multiple copies of pretty exotic old books we're still clearing for proper field duty.

Of special interest are some of the recovered relics. The Shards of Spite align with any thaumathology kit. We're confident the binding will allow minimal demonic influence, but it should help shape your incantantions into the sort of things that leave severe marks. On the other side, some of Wonglei's personal bonsai trees seem to have had a rather... odd pedigree.

The implications are being worked over as we speak.

Finally, there's a minor budget matter.
As of our last mission we had 41 operational credits left for this quarter, and some funding for extra research.

We've recieved the outlook for next term and that's +60 credits, so we're up to 101.
Some of our research allocation has already paved the way for some exciting new projects and finds, which you can per-use at your own leisure. As these are experimental devices, keep in mind that they are highly limited in quality and often have some.... kinks to work out.

We can also elect to spend our research efforts either on finalizing Werenhoffs ritual circle project or upgrading our camera and uniform suites.

[Ritual Circles] give a standard pool of 5 AP / +2 that any thaumathologist can draw on to fuel spells with in addition to any own.

[Recon Tactics] gives a mapwide +1 evasion and means cleared FoW stays cleared unless deliberately blocked by smoke or enemy action.

No additional, yes. Standard does apply, that's in the uniform mesh and weave. It's +1 for weapons 2, just having weapons 1 doesn't actually grant another gadget slot.

So it would be weapons 1 (no bonus)
then weapons 2, +1 gadget
weapons 3, +2 gadgets

The quick-memory is that you have gadget slots equal to 2 + [weapons X-1]. Since weapon selections often depend on availabilty pre-mission, the extra gadget slots ensures you're qualified to bring something even if limited to low end gear and no high tech guns.

Looks like a quiet night tonight.

That's okay. The vampire infestation can just wait, I'm sure it's nothing serious.

What, there's only 27 'phages to worry about. You think Claire and I can't handle that many? Pssh, we got this in the bag.
Oh god we would die.
>>
>>48694594
Well, 27... ish.

You did get rid of 3 earlier, which is down to 24. But unfortunately the field trooper team is five people wo are all missing, so we'd go back up to 29.

But luckily it's practically impossible that all of the brood survived hiberating all these years. Karlsteen alone must arise and feed with regularity to preserve its old form, so it's likely a few have been snacked on on the way. And those who are then too weak to move on their own. The weakest get eaten first, so maybe 10 or so are a threat, in total?

But then it's a residential area and there were some rumors of some of the building crew disappearing, plus the hospitals and the homeless population that shrunk. Building up a buffer of expendable minions for taking care of any plots and plans Karlsteen enemies might have laid is sound strategy, so maybe 50?

Always.

You get the one weapon as a free choice in the armory. A lighter sidearm? It would be easier to carry in the field, certainly, but it wouldn't change the underlying paperwork and logistics of the thing. It's still a lethal weapon being checked out. That needs signing.

This isn't really a matter of how much you can physically carry - we trust you to go through the basic conditoning courses - but rather about what you're allowed to requisition at any one time.

We could probably talk the quartermasters into issuing more items if it was felt it was strictly needed to ensure mission success though.

All right field team - be careful down there. The investigation group is five people and three specialists manning the scanning gear; they mentioned they'd found the access tunnels expanding out into a deeper chamber they were actively scanning while stringing out some lights. Those are the ones to your right.

This is a cramped environment with broken lines of sight, try not to shoot each other in the back of the head. The night vision will help a little deeper in, and of course you've all got flashlights, but it's still not a good shooting environment.

Try to find our team, and then locate the last hemophage. Since its knows you're coming, you should stick together to avoid getting pulled into the dark.

Are you absolutely sure you don't want to bring the Ghost Bows? It's your prerogative field team, but advanced stage hemophages like Karlsteen are gonna a lot of bullets before they go down. Or some UV Nadexes? We develop these items for a reason, you know.

Looks like we found the investigation team and the techniciains.

They must have been working widening the access to the interior cave system when they were ambushed. The hemophages waited for them to pause to calibrate the equipment so they were all clustered. Two from the front, but one from behind, hence the confused line of fire. In the panick they tried to retreat, stumbled over each in the cramped interior and didn't get very far.

Only blood is from what looks like a snap shot that hit a friendly. They must have taken the bodies deeper in.

Good eyes, operative Lorne.

Looks like a weird, jagged stalagmite rising from the ground.

Hang on --- no, that's not normal in this area. This cave couldn't have been here for the two-thousand years require for it to reach that size without someone discovering it.

It's dead stone now but Gerean says its the by-product of someone shaping the environment. They must have put the excess stone into the salag sculptures as a way to get rid of it. Looks harmless for now but if it's been worked before its liable to get worked again.

That's old bones, operative. Four hundred years or so, judging from the teint. Look at the engorged mandible and the differentiated zygomatic bone; that's a hemophage all right.

The faint residude is the essence not the leaving the body because it's not cleansed by sunlight.

They must have eaten the weakest looking ones for sustenance; which is why they started mutating so rapidly. Feeding on hemophages is... problematic.

Well, scratch one at least. That's some good news.

Which is to say that yes, you may act field operative. Nothing is currently preventing it.

As no hostiles are currently in view, we simply proceed forward at a rapid pace until such a time as you encounter any hostiles or the mission itself is solved when you recover the field team.

Given the amount of bullet holes, shell casings and chemical traces of nitrocellulose, nitroglycerine, and petroleum jelly, it seems likely you will encounter /something/.

On one hand, I'd like to scan as much as possible to gather intel and reveal the map. On the other hand, most players don't seem to be active yet, and I don't want to run into a mass of hostiles before some tactical positioning has been accomplished.

A good investigation and some sleuthing reveals that the group was taking by surprise; but that the strung out wires with some still glowing lanterns does lie curled up ahead. The investigation teams weapons are all missing. As are their standard issue grenades. That's not a good sign.

There's also a very faint blood trail that leads off into the right-most passage, faintly scruffed as if something heavy was dragged across it.

A CLUE, definitively. However, if they were foolish enough to take the weapons they also took the thaumathology kits! And someone could track those simply by looking for any resonance with their own forensic kits or some other personal grimoire, a relatively simple action meant to ease in-field teamwork.
>A simple [Find] spell for 2 Ap would ping other Vanguard Thaum Kits within 6 hexes.

Meanwhile, operative Kowalski spots a wall section that doens't actually exist.

Scanning, scanning - check the right Lorne. Nesasio, grab a rock sample from that stalagmite for later study, maybe we can use it.

Kowalski, see if you can't take a spot into the opening--- yeah, we see it over here.

Got faint traces of some sort of cloak attempt, long gone. Must be where they were waiting for the team... got a nesting place; activity only because the hemos have been there... got some more shaped rock--- wait, what's that?

There's the other one! Jiggs! GET IT--- Dammit that thing is strong, duck! Wait, no, it's going for the fallen corpse it's... Not bring it back? These guys are hungry. They're practically feral.

Us smashing in their feeding grounds must have broken what little restraint they had.

Already, reload and gear up. Get that runner. They're not stupid though, look - Kowalski. They know we can track the books, so they've put one of them on the bone pile. They still need them if they want to use any of them, so we're likely to get mostly positives. That's one book down, four more loose.

They're carrying two, so that leaves one that's either on the ground as a decoy or in the hands of a hemo. Watch your shots.

Can't fault their sense of the Classics, operative. Underground, dank, coffins. If you hear orchestral music playing, let us know all right?

And yeah, they are - Spec-Marked from Kowalskis and Lorne's investigations. There's something curious about the rock, but we can't tell what unless you get a bit closer.

Wagering a guess they've probably hollowed the entire thing out and made a bunch of mini-passage ways to bypass any intruders and come at them from all angles.

Then again, it could be a pit-trap or a Stone Guardian. So be careful. Tricky, these things.

Looks like they just excavated a whole lot then. The central chamber is very big, cavernous almost. They must be making room for something but can't tell what. They wouldn't need tis much if they were just hollowing small sections. Do you see anything cathedral like? They need all this space for something.

Excellent work field team, that's hemophages original and copy one and two done for. Lorne's investigation didn't reveal anyone els and with the ruckus they would have woken up by now so, mission complete! Too bad about losing the investigation team, but you avenged them three-fold!

Damn fine shooting people. Damn fine. Didn't even hit Jiggs once. That's pretty improbable. Oh, well, sometimes you get

LUCKY

I guess.

But, Thaum Jiggs? Your wound is sprouting vines. You might not want to try and invoke anything else on yourself while your thaum kit is suffused with the essence of spite and malice, that doesn't go well with a biological system like yours. Does it hurt? It looks like it hurts.

All right people, reload and move on out of that cave! Drinks are on Field HQ, mission success---

It's blood strained. Probably from the previous owner. The plaza beyond is tentatively quite big, recently expanded, and host to six ritual circles - five arranged around the last in a standard protective pattern.

>>48709652
Scanning reveals hefty activity in the five secure warding circles and slightly subdued activity in the sixth.

Oh, excuse my manners. I am Karlsteen. You may have heard of me?

Hm?

No? Disappointing.

Alas, I have heard the cities of Earth turn over quick so perhaps my jaded fame has faded. Well thank you all for coming, really. I am right in the middle of a minor ritual here; it appears my spawn have somewhat grown malnourished during our long internment and I am rather without my usual Herd so to make recompense I figured these fine gentlemen with their most curious armor would do.

Yours, I presume?

That awful racket must be you destroying Buttercup, Lucky and Spot then. Always a bit rough-and-tumble, that lot.

to be near the tracks it would have taken 6 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 2 - 2 - 2

The tracks is blood, by the way - probably them dragging the investigation team.

Gentlemen, Ladies, Wolves of an Uncertain Persuasion, we can all agree here that you simply need to offer me something I want in return for these mostly drained bodies and---

What is that most curious device?

Drinks are on the officer tap, you've damn well earned it. Sprawling dancing Illbloods, you've managed to actually defeat Carlsteen. Woooh.

I guess we might be able to stop sending you on all these low-end jobs now and actually get something dangerous done!

Well, I guess we can't keep calling your field team if you're actually proving to be surprisingly competent.

Come up with a moniker and get back to us, we'll add you to the proper paperwork file now that you're not an ad-hoc working group for suddenly occuring problems.

It's great to have another active field team! Man there are *so* many places we need to send you guys.

Wait, speaking of Werenhoff, I just remembered something. Could it be possible to seek wisdom from Werenhoff to gain knowledge to medical treatment?

>>
>>48717285
We do offer standardized medical courses, yes, and you can take a field exam to expand your capacities.

Are you looking for anything in particular, operative? It has to be said, most of the operations aren't exactly conductive to proper first aid in sanitized conditions. Slapping on bandages and injecting syringes is as far as people usually get. If you want to know more, it could be arranged.

Oh, and thanks for the run. When can we expect the next one?

>>48717725
"one thing that's been on my mind, was drugs and disinfectants. People use a LOT of NorAdres, and Mormorph is rarer but is also used. So I was just thinking, 'there must be a better method to applying drugs and stims, that isn't 'stick needle to chest/arm''. Also, people were being thrown around, get stunned, cut up, and other terrible things happen to them. I'm sure bandages and stuff helps, but being untrained in such acts, I felt like I was messing sumething up while patching wounds this mission. so better training in first aid could help as well.

In case medical training is unavailable, I would opt to pester the geeks to tell me their secrets at cracking into systems, but medical stuff comes first."

"I've decided. I want to know how to identify wounds and do first aid properly."

Hey. Will having Pointman+ let one overwatch even when afk? I'm asking because botting in this skirmish seems nonexistent.

Yup.

ABW, Operative.

I have just realized I didn't apply the Operative bonuses to my stats.
This is troubling.

There's not that much medical stuff to offer, operative. Most actual care is taken at Field Hq and then a hospital; there's only so much you can do to keep people in fighting shape.

We can begin development of expanded in-field aid routines and try to fast-track them to the armory, however. They shoud be ready.... any time now.

And there is one basic skill-set.
[First Aid] - 2 Ap to recover 1 Vit on touched, +1 use on Medical Gear
