Team 2-Emergence Sector 4:Marcus Fenix & Dominick Santiago

CoG HQ Jenico City

Lieutenant ...Sgt.Fenix is here

....Send him in.

Sgt.pull up a chair,first of all congratulations on
your successful mission .Now lets get to the debriefing,
just give your run down of how things went.

Lieutenant it's all in my report.

I know Sgt. but Command feels that a visual & audio
record is valuable,it allows them to pick up nuisances
that simply reading a report doesn 't provide.
You've been through these before so lets get to

OK...Well Santiago & I were checking out Sector 4
looking for an Emergence hole.The Sector is mainly
the campus of Janico City College & it's fairly busted up
being on the perimeter but the R.O.T.C. building is still
standing & it's a large complex so we figure that's
the first thing to check out.

Santiago takes point and Advances through the foyer
and takes cover behind the reception desk,
and puts both barrels into a Boomer.The damn
thing is hit but doesn't go down.

Now all Hell breaks loose,this is obviously the Emergence
location Two Drones fire on Santiago he's wounded but
as he's in full cover the damage is minor.

I haul ass around the Boomer & Assault the Drone nearest
to Santiago with my chain blade cutting the thing in two.

Now I can hear other Locust coming in our direction,but
my immediate concern is the wounded Boomer & behind
me & the other Drone in front.The Boomer swings his
Boom Shot in my direction but I beat him to it & put
a full clip from my assault rifle into him & this time he
stays down.

I just have time to try to dodge the Drones attack,
he still hits me but it could have been worst.

I 'm worried about Ammo,taking out the Boomer
has cost both Santiago & me clips.I know from
studying plans of the building that an ammo storage
locker is just ahead to our left,so I yell for Santiago
to move up & secure it.He does & I can hear him
ripping shells from their packing cartons.

We now get a break as the Drone in front of me
just holds up in cover.But I can hear something big coming
our way.

I figure why wait? so I move up & assault the approaching
Boomer,I kept my finger on the trigger & emptied
another full clip into him,I'm burning ammo but I gotta
stop the damn thing.He goes down & I breath a big
sigh of relief.

The Drone I slipped by now tries another attack on me
but Santiago opens up on him full bore with that shotgun &
cuts him down even though it was in partial cover.

I'm still in trouble as the Drone who was with the
Boomer now opens up on me but I managed to
avoid any damage.

Santiago is just setting tight in the ammo locker
& I'm hold up just outside as a Drone moves into
my area.Santiago draws it into the ammo locker
& Ambushes it taking it out.

We're free of Locust but I can hear them
moving out somewhere in front of us.
I pick up the dead Drone's Hammer Burst.

Santiago moves ahead causiously as the
sound of Locus approaching is getting louder.

I slip into the ammo locker to cover him.
Just then another Boomer takes a bead on
Santiago but I've got his back & blow the
Boomer away with a Bolo Grenade.

Santiago now breaks for the end of the corridor
& follow.He runs right into another Boomer &
empties his pistol point blank into it killing it.

A Drone & a Wretch now attack Santiago but
do only minor damage.

I attack the Drone into coming after me & then
take it down with an Ambush.

We're in the clear again but we can still hear Locust
of somewhere in the next corridor.

Santiago charges toward the sounds and moves
into the grenade storage room where he can
see the Emergence hole & 2 Drones just across
the corridor.He lobs a Bolo Grenade into them
with perfect timing both Drones are taken out
and the Emergence Hole is sealed under the debris.

Then 2 wretches & 2 Boomers come through the
back door and into the hall way!

A wretch goes for me but I dodge the attack.The
other Wretch goes for Santiago but he catches
it on the edge of his shotgun & blows it to hell.

I use the Hammer Burst to to Ambush the Boomer
coming in on me and stop it cold.

It's now a real Firefight The last Boomer attacks me
along with a Wretch but their aim is off and I get off
with only minor damage.Another Wretch goes after Dom
but he escapes without damage.

Santiago now Pummels the Boomer but it remains standing

The Wretch renews it's attack on me but Santiago
intercepts with a shot gun blast.

The remaining Wretch goes for Santiago but he dodges
the attack.

I uses my last ammo to open up with my assault rifle
on the wounded Boomer & put it down.

The Wretch is now alone but still attacks Santiago
who uses his final ammo to shred the thing.

We give it several minutes to make sure nothing
no other Locus are around then signal for pick up.

That's it Lieutenant,you need anything else or is Show
& Tell over?

No Sgt.your excused.


Our 2nd try,this time using the other 2 Cogs ,this time
we won.From our first Game with Baird & Cole we learned
to keep going the Mission objective & not get tied
up in Combat trying to kill every Locus.

Frankly the Locust die were not as hot as the first Game,
so when we really needed to stop a Locust from an attack
that would have probably caused a Bleed out to a Cog
we got the hits.

Excellent session report! Very thematic. cool Two teeny criticisms though: It's Fenix and Locust.

Thanks Mark-a couple of years late but I corrected.
