Rescue at Beta Crucis-4
Members of the rescue party will be brought up to Major John
Carpenter's office for a debriefing. He will be especially interested in
the use of the atomic weapons against the invid hive. After the debriefing
is over he will say the following:
"Gentlemen your work on the last mission was exemplary.
Unfortunately, one of our six groups failed to destroy its assigned hive,
[a holographic picture of the planet will appear out of the large desk around
which the players are seated. Major Carpenter will point to an invid hive
in the mountains on the largest continent on the planet]. Our strike force
consisting of 4 Legios fighters failed to destroy this hive. Even worst than
this failure is not one of the 8 members have returned. We fear the worst.
[A close up of the sector in question appears before the characters]. Sat
com has detected an emergency beacon at this position. Your orders are to
rescue any members of the lost recon team. The recon team was commanded by
First Lt. Gerald Market and his second was Sgnt Major Ernest Gilberts both
of which are alpha pilots.
As for the invid hive itself, it is partially built into the
side of a mountain. This is most unusual as you can imagine. As for whether
or not this is a standard hive, intelligence has no clues. One other shadow
fighter will be issued for this operation, Captain Olson will make any decisions
regarding equipment based on mission parameters. Any other requests for equipment
will be handled through requisition officers, Warrant officer David Rossow.
Are there any questions?
The characters will be brought down into the hanger area and
preparations for the mission will be made,. missiles issued, ammunition,
and the new CVR armor.
CVR-4 Armor all the properties of CVR-3 armor except the following:
** Can not be used in cyclone mecha
A low level corporal will take captain olson aside in all the
commotion to bring back up to the briefing room where Major Carpenter will
be. The lights will be off and he is looking out towards the stars.
Captain please sit down, I have looked at your combat record
and I was most impressed, that this one of the reasons why I have ordered
you on this combat mission. The other reason is that I feel that you understand
the concept of the chain of command and following orders to the best of your
ability. Right now technicians are loading your mecha with two 15 megaton
thermal nuclear devices. You are hear by ordered to use the nuclear weapons
to destroy the invid hive under these two circumstances.
Under no circumstances are you to tell your subordinates that
you posses atomic until the time to use them. We feel that if the non coms
where to realize that we are to kill our own people it could be bad for moral.I
have complete faith in your ability good luck Captain......
Part II Rescue attempt
At 06:00 the next day the characters will be awakened for the
mission. After a quick breakfast they will be briefed that no usual activity
has been detected around the area. They will be helped into there mecha by
the techs. The flight has been preprogrammed into the computers, it should
take 3 hours to travel down to the planet.
The following invid will fold in
1/2 of the way to the planet the group will receive the following
message on the tight beam laser communication.
"Task group falcon, this is mother nest. Two minutes ago a invid strike force defolded. Unfortunately, we are outmatched what the commander has decided to do is to orbit around the planet the whole time keeping in front of the invid force. You have 5 hours to complete your mission before we arrive at the fold point. Captain Olson I am to inform you that turtle bay conditions due exist. Good-Luck falcon this is mother nest out..."
Unfortunately for the players, this final hive contains the
communication equipment which the enhanced enforcer is using to communicate
with the regent.. He is a supreme strategist and realizes that the player
are most likely to try and rescue the players.
Grquab has placed 2 alpha fighters and 1 beta fighters in the
middle of a enclosed valley to the south east of the hive. He has placed
2 bodies of the pilots in the planes and surrounding the crashes he has 6
shock troopers on each side 200 meters from the crash cite (perception -8).
In addition in the hills 3miles away he has 1 invid raiding patrols with
2 red scrimms, ie on the three sides of the trap. Furthermore, 3 standard
invid patrols will be heavily patrolling the se. He has ordered these to
ignore any mecha until the mecha are inside the trap. These standard patrol
are all armored scouts however , players will discover on 0-09% on read sensory
Other patrols in an effort to trap the players Grquad has stripped
other patrol routes
The invid hive itself is only 400 meters in diameter with 1/2
of the hive protected by a large mountain. The top portion of the hive contains
the communication equipment, a large communication antenna 50 meters up.
The entire top portion of the hive is taken up with the hyperspace communication
equipment. except for room a this has 5 invid technicians guarded by 3 regular
Sgnt Major Ernest Gilberts and Prt first class Marc Role are
on level 5 C. There alpha fighters are on Five F. They are in poor condition
-75% MDC on all locations each down to 1d4 missiles and only one can
Each level except level one has 1 hive interior patrols and
1 hive interior inorganic patrols.
Grquad knowing that the players will most likely try and rescue
the players he will go down to level five and blow the north tunnel. He and
the rest of the invid forces on the level will setup an ambush ie anyone
coming down the tunnel will be attacked by the inorganic patroll and the
interior patrol on that level. He will have the purple enforcer armor (-5
on perception) for players to see.
Failing the ambush he will hold the two pilots hostage and will
use them to make his escape, will try and kill the hostages once he has gotten
outside. During the interim period inside the hive hive he has requested
a invid clamship. If the players have spent more than 15 minutes on the rescue,
the 1/4 full ship will land 600 meters to the north of the hive. Grquad will
try and escape on the ship.
THE ENHANCED ENFORCER
An experimental form of the Red Enforcer, the Enhanced Enforcers are very few in number. Like the regular Enforcer, the Enhanced are capable oindependent thought and decision making. They can command the lesser Invidand the Inorganics. The major difference between the Enhanceds and the regular Enforcers is that the Enhanceds cannot be commanded by the Invid Brain. They can only be commanded by the Regent. Because of this relationship, the Enhanceds usually command the Brains instead. Besides their usual duties, the Enhanceds also command special strike forces. Their armor appears to be the same as the regular Enforcers except that the enhanced version is bigger and colored purple.
Invid Enhanced Enforcer
M.D.C. by Location:
Weapon Systems: Same as Enforcer, except:
1. Concealed Missile Launchers in the forearms. Each contains two Armor Piercing Missiles.
2. Hand to Hand Combat: Same as Enforcer, except:
+3 to Strike, +3 to Parry (+6 w\shield), +3 Dodge On Ground, +6 Dodge In
Flight, 1 Automatic Dodge Against Any Protoculture User.
Note: No more than two dozen of these fiends were made by the
After the rescue
The players will have 30 minutes at the hive to rescue the pilots.
The 1 1/2 hours during which the players are flying to the invid hive the
towgugawa will be able to elude the invid forces. However 1 hour until the
players to get back to the ship there luck will run out. Forced to fight
the invid they are able to destroy 1 scorpion ship and damage a second. However
the invid continue to press the attack. The players will come with in 10,000
km they will see that the 2 scorpion ships are continuing to press the attack.
In the sector which the players are coming in there will be a mixture of
20 armored scouts and 20 scouts. All the ship defenders have been destroyed
and they are coming in for a suicide attack
The invid break through will be around the main defense. If
the players are able to destroy the invid ships within 3 melees they will
be asked to go to the main defense and help out until the fold can proceed.
10 melees until the fold they will slowly back up until they are within 500
meters of the ship. Anyone with the hostages will be cleared to enter the
Random attacks per 2 remaining characters.
After all this depending on victory or defeat they will fold
back to REF sector head quarters for some well deserved rest. Promotions
will be give to those that deserve them. In the new sector command headquarters
at Tyrol the new REF towers will have been built. After some hellos the
characters will be led into the main hall in the command tower to accept
