Wake up, wayward soul.


Rise up, and look into my... holy light.

It's been a while since you died.

It has been years of cold silence since you died, you know that, right? Or have you just been drifting around the void of space, unconscious of what happens during your state of limbo? I'll be damned if you even remember who you were back when you had a body, wayward soul.

.,.

It looks to me that your limp, numb exist
ence as a drifting, ghostly specter is about to turn to an empowered specimen quite soon... We're busy getting your temporary halo grafted onto you. This halo doesn't make you one of us yet, so when you arrive in uh... Paradise, we'll set you up with the tools to make yourself a real halo. Please, ignore the sudden pain urges. You're in a new body now.

.,, -we're done, numbing agents are good to go.

Looks like we're done, We'll talk later when we arrive at Paradise. Be patient, we'll arrive soon.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------That's how each of the three wayward souls became angels; collected by a Sentain recruitment squad and taken to what they called Paradise. The three jolted up from a shock, only to awake restrained to a backboard in a white, cold room, and while their torsos and legs felt natural and reasonable, their backs stung as if their whole back was one big second degree burn, and the backboard's cold metal aura made it feel as if that burn was contacting with dry ice. Their heads felt numb and nauseated, and on top of that, their vision was blinded by wet trickles of moisture and their ears were heavily ringing. Gravity, a concept which was familiar to them, still existed, but felt stronger than before, pulling them to the ground, giving an illusion of falling. The whole state they were in felt like a disturbed nightmare.

"Wake up."

The words fought audibly with the ringing, but were hearable by the three he was addressing. The voice seemed human; it was a low-toned, comfortable to hear, and calming voice which conflicted with the situation they were in. He wore a peculiar garb; cyan robes covered the arms and shoulders of a cuirass of brownish-yellow armor laced with some kind of red detailing, noticeable enough to be seen even when the three wayward souls were half-blind from the humid, cold, moist environment of the holding chambers. His headwear was completely alien to them, a completely solid half-oval that left no visible visor for him to see through stuck as the most peculiar sight of their awakening. As the figure continued to talk, albeit half-inaudible against the insidious ringing, blurs of yellow and white streaked passively around the wayward souls, distracting them from the voice, before it suddenly became more clear, as if he noticed that they couldn't hear him.


-----"I was saying that you have just melded with your new wings. Painful as it is, it'll go away. I know how much it stings," he reassured, "I remember when I was taken in. Disoriented, barely able to stay conscious... I guess that's just how the Saintification process works. We'll take you up now, you'll learn what to do when you get up on the roof."

The backboard turned downwards, and the three soon found themselves facing the ceiling of the complex. Their vision soon came back to them, finally adjusting to the atmosphere, and the ringing very abruptly, almost deafeningly, stopped, and nothing but silence dominated the room as the ceiling opened to a bright blue, earth-like sky. What looked like a giant fortress lingered in the distance like a moon, blurred not by the new Saintlies' eyes, but the atmosphere itself from the sheer distance it floated from them. At this sight, the floor rose to reveal that the fortress they saw earlier was connected to the facility they were in: a large beam of solid metal connected them to hundreds of identical facilities just like the ones they were in.

The restraints of the backboard released, and a group of armored spearmen helped them get up off the board and up the giant beam to the main fortress. They were silent, but the one who they first met spoke to them from the back of the group,

"Welcome to our Academy."  

That was the last thing they remembered that day. But since then, they parted ways to train in separate fighting schools. The beings they ended up meeting came and went like there was an endless amount of angels being trained here. The soul who referred to himself as Malus trained with a cat-o-nine-tails whip and sheild among other Fanatics, the one named Sycal trained in the shooting galleries with her giant crossbow among Sentries, and Krista multi-tasked with her dual gunsaws with other Wraiths. After what seemed like years of flight and war training, they each were ordered to meet at the top of the fortress to see what would be their first commander, a Sentain General with close to a millennium of experience leading squads.

------Malus, Sycal, and Krista were escorted to the top, and being the only ones there, they met up and began to wait for the Sentain General to arrive, with the top of the fortress at their disposal. Whether they remember each other or not, all of them had changed from when they first saw each other, and if they did, conversation would lay seconds away.

Malus took the time to glance at his squadmates. Maybe it was his overall distaste in working as a team, or maybe it was the couple of drinks he had a day prior still having an effect on his mood, but he wasn't impressed with the selection of teamates so far. Hopefully the academy would have the decency to get a man to lead the squad, because while there are many situations where being swamped by women is considered a good thing, the field of battle is not one of them. His trusty whip seemingly blew in the wind. With the absence of their new leader, he soon became impatient. Being the classy gentleman that he is, he was the first of the group to speak.

"Any'o you ladies know when this guy is going't show up? The atmosphere here is almost as dull as this still air!" he bleated, grabbing at nothing to emphasise his point.

Krista pulled the latex gloves tighter onto her hands and adjusted the red band on her left arm; it was twisted. Her eyelids half hid her hazel eyes, partially to keep the glare of the light away but also because of her distaste for her company, currently numbering one woman in rather lacklustre body armour and something that looked like a faun, only less human.

It, or he, as it seemed, then spoke, which at least answered some questions on Krista's part. The other woman didn't answer the creature, so she sighed heavily before replying.
"No, I do not know ven our host vill arrive." Her voice was thickly laden with a strong German accent, but her English was fluent. It was a stubborn language that she began to learn after she had been recruited, albeit begrudgingly.

She turned away and walked towards the edge of the fortress roof, away from the others. She began to stretch there, loosening her muscles stiff from standing around and waiting. She arched her back and, like always, her wings flared out immediately. It must have been a reflex movement because she was content with keeping them folded by her back, but whenever she stretched her back her wings always joined in. Granted it was a great sensation, but she felt uncomfortable without that aspect of self control.

She stopped stretching and gazed out over the landscape before her. Why was I chosen? she asked herself in German. It was a question she had asked herself many times and bore no fruit, and even when she asked others the answers were always vague.
"To serve a greater purpose."
"To fight back the Hellspawn."
"You have killed your fellow man in glorious battle. That is what we need."


All well and good that she wasn't at least picked for no reason, but why her in particular was something she would never understand. Beyond her service as a nurse in the Third Reich, she was a healer for this new squad. But medical science from 1945 was obsolete in this bizarre realm. She had to learn magic to heal herself and others, and to use as a weapon, and learn it she did. Despite that, however, she trained in the use of pistols fused with bone saws, which both hung at her hips. They were German model pistols, but with longer barrels which facilitated the bone saw blades bolted underneath them. She felt more comfortable using these somewhat familiar tools than magic alone, and they served as a reminder of her past life. But what would she be back on Earth with these wings and spells? Some abomination? Or was she of an even greater race now?

Meanwhile, Sycal propped herself against the wall, wearing a slight grin on her face. A major part of her training as a sentry would be patience, to wait for best possible moment for an effective kill. She could happily spend more hours wiping the dirt from her crossbow, even the blood from her sickle. Her cheeriness became evermore uncertain at this height. A rooftop of all places. She had a very strong dislike of rooftops and knew there was a good reason for it, yet she couldn't recall why. But the movement of Malus's whip caught her eye, so she raised her goggles and brushed long hair out the way to reveal her green eyes.

Directed at the others, she remarked, "I get the feeling it won't be much longer, but this is far too boring." She walked back and slid her hand under the strap attached to her crossbow and swung it off of her shoulder in one quick manoeuvre as she took a good look at the rooftop view. As she turned around again, her small red scarf swept around with her head.

"So, what are your names again?"

Krista spent a few more seconds in quiet thought by the edge of the roof before turning around to answer Sycal. She crossed her arms, with her right hand placed on the red band, covering it a bit.
"You may call me Krista, or nurse." she said, her accent putting heavy emphasis on her 'R's and 'S's.

She slowly began to walk back to the two. Her pistols bumped against her legs as she walked.
"I vill be keeping you, and quite possibly our leader, alive and healthy on zee field. Zat vas my job long ago on Earth; some things don't change."
She shrugged then, closing her eyes and tilting her head.

"Well, folk 'round here call me Malus" The goat-man replied, suddenly deep in thought. "Dunno what it means, but I think it's the name of an apple tree. Not that I have much a-bother with it. Apple trees make apples. Apples make cider." His face then changed to discontent at the thought. "Dammit, this guy'd better show up quick, I'm just sitting here making myself thirsty" he grunted. "They could've it'least given us some target dummies to bash or some'thn, there's nothing to do here." His whip, still softly strafing in the unmoving wind, seemed to twitch slightly in agreement.

"So, eh... who are you, hiding behind yer eye-thingies?" Malus asked the crossbow wielding angel.

"I'm Sycal. Pleased to meet you!" It was a cheerful, punchy statement that made it clear to the other two that she was excited.

"And this thing is to protect my eyes from... stuff." Her sentence faded quieter and slower. Sycal looked down at the goggles, as 'stuff' wasn't specific enough for her. She wore them to shield a certain something back in her mortal life yet could never but her finger on it.

With her crossbow in her hands, she slid her thumb over the top of the projectile to test how sharp it was. Sure enough, blood soon ran down to her wrist.

"Krista, you're a healer, am I correct? Would you fancy a quick patch up?" she called out.

As the three engaged in conversation, a Sentain angel flew up from the wall of the fortress and landed near Krista. He was unarmored, a rare sight to see since most Sentains view their armor as their second skin.

"Sorry to report this, but General Staine is currently pre-occupied down over at Daltai'aegia; apparently a pack of Akabans somehow made it through the Domain Portal. It came as a bit of a shock, very rarely have Hellspawn, including Akaban, have ever breached our defenses that much without Lucifer's support."

He cleared his throat.

"I've been told to, uh... take his place for the time being. He's got something important for all of you to do."

Even with his tall stature, he really didn't look like the leader type, with his voice carrying the tone of a disciplined, obedient soldier rather than a commanding, laid-back General.

"On the topic of names, mine's Aulair Se'Raphael," offering his hand to Krista. "You all've not been here long enough to learn about the Hellspawn species, have you? How much have you guys been taught by the wardens other than fighting techniques?"

Krista's eyebrows furrowed in vexation at Sycal's request.
"I am a healer, yes, but I vould fancy you didn't cut yourself and have me patch up zee vound ven you should be taking care of yourself."

That was all she was able to say before the fourth angel flew onto the rooftop. Her eyes lingered darkly on Sycal before her expression melted away as the angel addressed them. His story was short and to the point: Akabans had made it into Sentain, and the Sentain General would not be here for them yet. What exactly an Akaban was, however, was something Krista was hoping Aulair would explain.

She took his hand when it was offered to her. "I am Krista. I vas taught to fly and heal serious injuries, as vell as how to fight. Vat vould zee General have me do?"

Malus, although less tense from the gender equalisation, was still unsure of the fourth angel. His knowledge of demons was limited, but he's certainly been called a few in the past. Still, might as well introduce himself while nothing is happening.

"Alo chum, m'name's Malus." Malus spoke, trotting towards Aulair. "I'm a bash'n magic type of guy. I don't really 'ave much to do here, so what's this 'important' gait all'bout?"

"Well, long story short, the Saintly recruitment team that brought you here didn't finish their job. They left some important devices behind just floating in space, and you have to fix their mistake. Luckily, we can trace them, but I... well, the General at least, has suspicions that some Regnant forces have captured these devices."

Spoiler:
 

"We'll be heading to the Realm of Mortals, but not to Earth. We gotta go a bit close to the hellish side of the Domain, where the Regnant colonies are." His wings spread. "Follow me." He said, and they followed.

On the high-speed flight, they passed countless fortresses like the ones they trained at, as well as a large, golden sky-city which sheer size dwarfed anything the 3 had ever seen before. It consumed the entire skyline, and contained billions of statues, buildings, green parks, water areas, buildings, cloud towers, you name it, it was there.

"That's Saintly Paradise right there. We'll head over there when we finish the mission and spend some fun time as a squad; get to know each other better and whatnot. They've got everything you'd want down there, and if they don't, they'll get it for you in a split second. That's what we aim towards down there. Paradise." he sighed.

"So what'do you guys plan on doing when we get back?" He asked.

Krista kept up with the other three angels, but not without a struggle. The wind rushed at her face, stinging her eyes and robbing the breath from her lips. She had to hold an arm just over her face to shield it. For this she envied Sycal and her goggles.

"Acviring some bloody goggles, for a start!" she choked. "Zee vind has never been zis strong before!"
Or I have never flown this fast before... she contemplated in German. As she matched her company's speed in the air, she cast her mind back to her service in Germany in the early forties. The soldiers often used gas masks to protect themselves from gas attacks, but Krista realised that if she had one, she could use it to shield her eyes as well as her nose and mouth from the wind as she flew.

"Or a mask!" she spluttered out, forcing back tears.

Sycal, meanwhile, was half-tuned out. Awed at the view and calling out the landscape with excitement, pulling off more impressive manoeuvres and spirals in the air, almost dancing.

"It looks like this work is all finally paying off!" she told herself out loud in a gleeful tone. She caught sight of Krista, who was still seemed quite tense during the flight. Sycal pulled back and swayed beside Krista, a small snapping was made as she took off her eyewear, extending her arm out in a friendly manner, offering her the tinted goggles. "You can take these for the rest of the journey if you like. They may not fit that well, but they'll keep out the stuff". Not leaving her with any option, Sycal suddenly pushed forward, away from Krista, leaving her with the goggles.

"I'm sorry to say I don't have an extra pair, but she seemed to need them more than you." she said, directed at Malus. She spoke softly this time, yet kept her distance from him. There was something about him, his look, his weapons that put Sycal off. She looked back at the landscape in order to gain enough confidence to finish what she was saying. "Besides, the fitting might be slightly worse with your, uh, form."

"Ma'am, somehow I doubt those things will fit around my head to begin with." he groaned. He didn't know what this flight was leading to, but he wasn't enjoying the ride so far.

Malus almost didn't pay any attention to Sycal, as he was too busy facing one of the harsher facts of life; goats aren't aerodynamic.

His horns were facing quite a considerable pullback as they caught the wind, forcing him to hold his arm over his forehead to hopefully break the drag-causing gust enough for him to keep up with the group. At least the shape of his head ensured that most of the incoming air moved past his face, and directly not into it. At least his whip, secured to his hip, had been knotted firmly to prevent all nine of it's tails from being blown around freely, otherwise he'd have a very sore bottom by now.

A giant cylinder loomed in the horizon of the Sky city; the giant Domain Gate awaited them. Streams upon streams of Angels flowed in and out of the organized trafficking rows. But while the entire trip seemed secure, that sense of security faltered for Krista when, out of the corner of her eye, saw what looked like a giantic fiery cloud off behind them, only visible when her vision teetered to her far left, aided by the lens of the goggles she was just handed. No one else seemed to notice it but her.

"There it is. Get ready for gravity and wind to say goodbye; we're heading straight to space." Aulair warned, altering his course slowly to merge in with one of the cylinder's numerous trafficking tunnels. After a short while, a dark void that altered light around it came into view, the portal mere seconds from being reached.

Krista had to give Sycal credit; the goggles did help. She could fly just as fast as the others without the wind whipping at her eyes, although she still found it a little hard to breath. She could enjoy the scenery below her, although having been in Sentain for a long time already, it wasn't anything new.
I'll probably owe Sycal a favour after this. she thought. Although a mask would still be better.

She looked ahead to the stunning grandeur of the Domain Gate. The sheer size of it was incredible, but then what wasn't, in this world. The streams of angels flowing into and out of the gate reminded Krista of ants and the way they busily crawled too and fro, each carrying a small part of their nest.

She wasn't sure how long she was staring at the Domain Gate, but she eventually realised that her left cheek was itchy. She turned her head to the left and rubbed her cheek against her shoulder, as she turned back she caught a glimpse of what she was certain was fire out of the corner of her eye.

She looked back again to see what it was, but there was nothing — nothing was on fire. She tentatively dismissed it and resumed her flight, mere seconds away from the gate.
It must be a reflection from these goggles. She thought. I can't wait to get a proper mask.

The portal did its work. There they were, out and away from the distortions the portal produced, into what seemed like a whole new universe all over again; Domain 2: The Realm of Mortals.

The trafficking tunnel continued onwards until it opened up to the innards of a spherical outpost, laced with gray, sturdy looking hull plates. Transparent portions of the hull revealed a dark void outside this complex, behind the clear windows lay an array of white dots; some brighter than others, with the largest one giving off a blinding light towards the right-facing side of the outpost. They were stars; something all too familiar to the three Saintlies. The outpost appeared to function as a orbiting space station of sorts, much like a satellite, but domain gates are fixed at a special point in existence... That's the odd part about the situation. The Gate and its attachments weren't the satellites; the star was.

"Welcome home, I guess. Gravity doesn't exist out here in the void of space, so use your halo to propel yourselves." Aulair seemed to wheeze on his words as if he was suffering from motion sickness, but the wheezing was understandable since the whole group felt like they would do the same.

The disorienting, sickening... sensation they felt was otherworldly, as though passing through that portal was something nobody was meant to do, seeming that the complex mechanism surrounding the Domain Gate forced them to pass through itself as they flew, rather than themselves flying through it with the ease of free control over their wings. This forceful essence felt as if passing the portal was intended to be impossible for anything of this universe to pass through. Whatever it was, the alien felling stuck with all of them, including Aulair. He shuddered, "Damn. I've passed through these Gates more times than I can count, but I still haven't gotten used to the effects of the passage. We don't really have the time to recuperate though. We've gotta move before that equipment strays too far towards Rengant territory."

Malus looked around frantically. Maybe it was the sudden change in atmosphere, or the sudden bright lights were messing with his head, or maybe he was just exhausted after the ordeal he went through to get this far, but he suddenly felt very light-headed when he exited the portal. His overall giddiness caused him to begin mindlessly rambling to himself.

"Space. I'm in space. Oh. Oh. OH! This is space! W-we made it, we made it. Space." he muttered, giggling to himself. This feeling wasn't all that alien to him, as his familiarity to being drunk out of his mind wasn't something to be questioned, but the sudden feeling of weightlessness without the need to fly was quite strange. If anything, it still wasn't doing his caprid brain any good.

With the workload taken off his wings, he began loosely drifting about as the group continued on, unintentionally mixing various forms of spiraling in his flight pattern and continuously babbling on about space. He then pulled close to Sycal, and spoke his empty mind once again.

"'Ey, lady. Lady. L-lady. I'm t'best. I'm t'best at space."

Krista felt like she was about to vomit, what with the contents of her stomach floating around in the absence of gravity, which would normally keep it down. The sudden feeling of body-wide relief was something she tried to indulge in, because up till this point, she had always felt gravity put pressure on some part of her body, be it her legs, back, wings, or her arms.

She tentatively tried flapping her wings to see how they worked in anti-gravity. The answer was 'very well'. She vaulted backwards from the force her wings exerted and when she tried to correct herself she found herself flailing about, unable to control herself. Her spinning did seem to ease her sickness, since it kept the contents of her stomach in one place rather than floating about, although it was still very annoying.

She decided to use her halo like Aulair suggested, but with no prior experience of using it properly, it was touch-and-go for the most part. She halted her spinning and returned herself to what she felt was an upright position, and slowly moved herself back towards the other three angels. Her breathing was ragged, but she assumed that it could be remedied if she simply had a gas mask to wear.

That reminded her that she was still wearing Sycal's goggles. She pulled them off her head and passed them back to her, watching them float straight through the air without falling down.
"Thank you for zose." she wheezed.

"Malus." Sycal grunted trying to pull her arm away. She became uncomfortable with Malus's large goat head in the way, accompanied by warm and unpleasant smelling breaths directly in her face. She frequently clenched her eyes and shook her head, trying to relieve her blurred vision.

"You need to calm down a bit." she rasped snapping her hand from his grip.

Sycal winced at the stabbing pain felt as she drew large breaths.

"If this... is home, then I hope I get used to this immensely quickly. But thank you Krista. I trust they helped." She readjusted the strap and happily slid the goggles back on. Once again, everything became tinted with red.

"Something tells me I had a lot of health problems back in my mortal life. Please tell me I'm not the only one who can't remember." she said in a quieter, but less gravelly tone as she rubbed her chest.

"You're the best at space? You clearly never met me before."

A Saintly hovered closer to them, garbed in a bulky, armored cosmonaut suit; no doubt a custom made uniform from Daltai'aegia. He turned to Aulair.

"Sup. I've got the pressure stabilizers for the Saintlies here, Commander. Wouldn't want another bloodbath of a cranium explosion like what happened last time you led a group."

Ballsy move. Mentioning that to Aulair in front of his crew would warrant a public reprimand.

"Still trying to scare the newbies away from me, I see." he smirked. This cosmonaut seemed to be a friend of his. "This is Cosmac. He'll be accompanying us for the while since our numbers are low. He's a Paladin, so he'll keep you two alive as long as possible," Pointing at both radiation specialists, "but Sycal won't have to worry about it too much. Regnants don't usually go for the Sentries."

Cosmac spoke up. "When he means Regnants, he means no Hellspawn in total ever go for the Sentries." handing her a pressure stabilizer mid-speak.

Cosmac's information sheet:

Malus, still suffering from brain-deprivation, looked at the paladin nervously.

"Oh, play't cool play't cool, here come t'space cops" he muttered. He drifted slowly toward Cosmac, inspecting his strange armor. Why could a paladin wear a cotton suit? As he gradually got closer to the angel, he noticed something in the visor on his helmet: his own warped reflection.

"OH BLODDY'ELL!" He bleated, the assumption that there was a monster hidden in that suit came as a sudden, unexpected shock to him, as he flew back and threw his arms up. He still hadn't gotten used to how psychics worked in outer space, as this action suddenly gave him enough momentum to perform several on-the spot backflips, causing him to hit himself in the face with the brim of his own shield.

"Oh, damn. That brought me back real'fast." Malus said, rubbing his sore cheek. "I should remember that trick fer'later. So, wha'd I miss, ladies?" He looked at Cosmac again, only this time with a more weighted head. "Yer'd one whose gon'keep the nasties outta m'face, ey?" he sneered. "In't you a little underprotected fer that kinda job?"

Upon hearing the remark, Aulair reeled forward and turned away, with his downward-bobbed head obviously holding in a burst of laughter. While Cosmac displayed humanlike traits, he displayed a Sentain vibe concerning his armor, looking offended before shrugging it off and leading the group to their destination.

Fit to go, they headed off to the black void of the cosmos, pressure stabilizers equipped and battle-ready.

"You guys listen for communication from the homeland. I've already got a Server linked to our halo comms so we can speak to the messengers at the Warp Station. They'll be able to relay any information necessary to the General right quick."

PRACTICE TOUR: Cleaning Up

We won't expect too much resistance, but if we do get some, which will probably happen, we'll likely fight Regnant space patrols since we've traced the devices somewhere behind their territory borders. Their patrol spacecrafts are equipped with weak firearm systems and flimsy metal, so don't worry about getting hurt; this'll be a cakewalk.
-----

They arrived at a stationary asteroid cluster. These asteroids were about the size of a football field, but there weren't many of them, anyone's best guess would be close to 20-30 of these things.

"Alright guys, we should be around the general location of the Saintification devices we're looking for; we're looking for a shiny grayish-green sphere of metal the size of a.. basketball, let's just say. No planets around here, so it might've embedded itself in one of these asteroids." Aulair said.

The sweep began: the group split up, with each angel checking a different asteroid. Upon looking for the sphere, Malus found something strange; a hull plating embedded in the asteroid.

Malus stared at the exposed metal in confusion. It didn't match the squad leader's description at all. Maybe there was more to these space rocks than meets the eye? He tapped the plating with his fingernail, wondering what is was. Was it some leftover piece of a long-forgotten battle? Is this the site of an old Regnant base? Is it even worth reporting? Malus decided to look deeper into it, as he tried to envision what as hidden inside the rock. Unable to come up with any logical answer, he lunged his right hoof at the rock in frustration, impacting it with a loud CLANG. That's when he noticed something was really off, and the stone face didn't shatter as he expected it to. It bent upon impact. To make things seem even more unnatural, the blow he gave seemed to cause a reaction, as Malus could suddenly hear the faint, but ever present sounds of movement inside.

"Alo, prieten?" Malus reported to the other squad members. "Are y'sure these are asteroids we're looking at? Because this'nes making a hell o' noise, an'I don't like it."

Aulair responded to Malus's call and examined the plating. "Yeah this is Regnant technology right here. They're known to use these kinds of asteroids as stationary- what's the term... buoys, marking their borders."

Cosmac shouted out in the distance. "I'm seeing some kind of opening doorway to these things, boss. You sure these are asteroids, or have the Regnants had their hands on them?"

"That's what I just was saying to Malus," he replied, "but they seem to be hollow and filled with something, nothing like the border buoys they use. We might've stumbled into some kind of secret hide-away of theirs."

Cosmac knocked on the rock he was examining, producing the same hollow sound Malus heard.
"Yeah, they're hollow, alright. Filled with something too.

"Well if it's hollow, we might as well punch a hole in it and look inside. The devices we're looking for are probably stashed away in one of these things."

Aulair took his spear and jabbed in, yanking a hole in the metal in the process. Upon opening the hole, he saw a collection of parts of Regnant laser technology.
"Ah g- we just poked through a weapon stash. That means we've just set off a silent alarm somewhere. Quick, you two," He pointed to Sycal and Krista, "bash open the others and see if the sphere's anywhere in these things before the cruisers start coming! Malus, you're with Me and Cosmac. We have to stand guard and defend them while they search.


BATTLE 1 BEGINS:
-----
Special Rules:
1: Anyone can break open and search one asteroid instead of attacking per turn.
*Krista and Sycal can search an asteroid and execute their turn at the same time due to their support roles.
*A total of 15 asteroids need to be searched. The sphere could be in any one of the 15.
2: The Regnants will prioritize attacking Krista and Sycal this round: This should serve as a guarding tutorial for the group.


BATTLE 1: TURN 1
-------------
Space seems pretty empty; no enemies are present, but they'll arrive soon.

Player's turn:
-------------
Aulair hovers by Krista and begins to guard her. "I got your back." He assured her.
(Krista: 3/3 HP : 2/2 GP)
(Aulair: 5/5 HP : 2/2 GP)

Cosmac, on the other hand, neglects the guarding job to search one of the asteroids, finding nothing, but narrowing the search down by one asteroid.

14 Asteroids have not been searched yet.

Malus, Krista and Sycal still need to make a move.
