So we got attacked last night by Red Scorpion air fighters (which according to Red were entirely compromised of MIG 17's circa the Cold War), and most of the fighters are reported to have been either damaged, destroyed, or crashed. While I admit that Red's flying skills with what seems to be an F-22 fighter against Cold War era planes is indeed a spectacle to watch, we have more concerning issues.
But first, a timeline:
1745 hours: A sudden Red Alert is declared when unknown fighters don't respond to warnings from the New Eden aircraft control station.
1750 hours: Red gets on his F-22 Fighter.
1801 hours: I, along with essential support personnel, and a 12 year old girl named Yuri, head into the panic room to wait out the coming air battle.
1802 hours: Dogfight between the Red Scorpion Fighters and Red start.
1815 hours: The front gate personnel report a King James trying to enter the premises.
It was around this time that the...complications rose up.
1816 hours: Back Gate camera shows the gate appearing to have been destroyed, and the guard (Pvt. Joseph Allen) KIA.
1818 hours: 3 unknown individuals are detected in the rear of the complex, encountering 60 security personnel desperately trying to hold the line with 90's Kiryu-Kai gear. 12 eventually die in this conflict, while 47 end up wounded either due to enemy fire, the confusion regarding the events of 1825 hours, or the faulty weapons that the security personnel are using compared to the M4's the unknowns were using.
1825 hours: Alert report reaches command, who activates turrets. Unknowns KIA
1900 hours: Red reports victory.
I took an inventory of the Unknown's gear, and it seems that they don't have any personnel effects on them to identify their faction. Due to the increased training, plus their apparent discipline, we can gather one of three possibilities: either the Red Scorpions planned this so the Ariel Assault to distract us from the ground assault, these individuals knew ahead of time what was happening, but are not involved with Red Scorpion, or it was a fluke.
None of these possibilities are in any way calming.
On a final note, from what I gathered in the local culture, most Ariel military uses Cold War era jets, as they are easier to either trade or manufacture than modern day military equipment. The F-22, while a nice advantage, is going to draw a lot of attention to us, so we might have to lie low for some time until we're ready to extract Prince Caspian (It's strange how no one acted...maybe they're too afraid of Royal Bodyguards).

Hello, Zeus here. So...I recently got a Job interview done! ^^
But that's not the announcement. This is.
I've noticed that I've had less times to focus on personal projects, and there have been multiple off the top of my head that I've been itching to do for some time. Thankfully, I've managed to reduce them to both Primary and Secondary projects.
Primary-These are focused on systems that I have that are currently using only one game for various reasons.
Fire Emblem Heroes: Yes, I downloaded it, and personally, I'm only waiting until Sigurd returns from the dead just to cap off every other hero into the dust. But until then, I'm content with just doing a narrative LP in which a former SI back when the Awakening SI deconstruction fics were reaching their peak get summoned into the casual world that is...FEH. From there, I will delve into Fire Emblem Awakening and the entire Fates Chronology, and depending on my computer skills, maybe an emulated game or two (no Tellus though).
Republic Commando: A Diamond in the rough for the Prequel Trilogy of Star Wars, it focuses on an elite squad of clone commandos known as Delta Squad as they fight through the Clone Wars. It's going to be something from the perspective of an outsider to the game, and once this is done, I'll go through the more tactical games in my collection.
Yellow: One of the original Pokémon games, we know it as the one where Pikachu is a starter. It will be the start of A Nuzlocke series, as well as side stories focused on the Rangers, Mystery Dungeon, and that one game involving Obo Nobunaga.
Secondary-These are focused on somewhat unique games on a system.
Enemy Within: One of the XCOM Remakes, it focuses on the battles of a covert organization against an unrelenting alien invasion whilst also battling against the human quislings known as EXALT. It focuses on turn based strategy battles and resource management.
Infinite Warfare: One of the more...controversial CoD games in recent years, it has a solid campaign (multiplayer, what's that?), and is going to be a timeline focused thing. Other Cod games will follow this.
I want to hear what you guys have to say about this.
People I expect an answer from:
You are some of the best people I've known here for a long time, and I trust your decision. Voting will end on February 27th.
