Competition: Fog Of War

Finished
Fog Of War

The battlefield is a visceral place. Mud, blood, and smoke often choke the glorified scenes we see on all those historical holovids. Besides all that, not everything is flash and action. There are long days and nights, watching and waiting, fighting against the misery that comes with the deprivations offered by the conditions. What does your character do in these scenarios? How do they handle it all?

In a minimum of 500 words, write a story of your character in the midst of such a battlefield. It can be the action-packed scenes we’re so familiar with, simple camp life, or trudging through the jungle on some unnamed planet. Your enemy should be one that your character would realistically be fighting, be it Collective or some flavor of foe unique to your Clan.
