Competition: [House Marka Ragnos] For Kar Alabrek

Finished
[House Marka Ragnos] For Kar Alabrek

HMR members have been tasked with a clandestine mission to infiltrate outside of Kar Alabrek, establish entry into the hidden tunnels and secure Level 9 as a primary mission. Secondary mission is to use the tunnels to the Cathedral, secure it and establish it as HMR FOB (Forward Operating Base).

Objective 1: "A ruse is a terrible asset to waste."

*You and your team manage to enter the tunnels and Cathedral unscathed and undetected. To draw out Collective forces you have established diversionary strike teams to create havoc throughout the city in order to disguise your main attack. *

Objective 2: "Flanked!"

The Collective spies have discovered your ruse and have alerted the masses. Collective leadership is now making a push to surround and secure the Cathedral grounds. HMR forces must make an immediate audible to their tactical plan in order to outflank enemy forces and gain the upper hand.

Textual submission

Objective 1: "A ruse is a terrible asset to waste."

Hilgrif took a second look at the long range scans on his pad that his pilot droid captain was feeding the info to while also sending the same info to Shroud who was beside him. Hilgrif scans mostly show the city of Kar Alabrek was still running in similar conditions that the history files said of the place from when Marka Ragnos was here except for the cathedral and some minor dark sites look like they had tape sealing the locations off. Hilgrif sent a copy of the reading off to his boss. Hilgrif then went to check the rest of the ship while Shroud keep an eye on the scans after a few minutes there was a beep from his encrypted com hilgrif gave it a quick answer and heard one of the aids of the summit say in a commanding voice “ The Quaestor and his staff has asked you to create a diversion while they send in a team to take the cathedral they will be there in about an hour”. Hilgrif then gave a quick but firm reply “I understand ”. Hilgrif then turned off his com device and thought for a minute then spoke to Shroud in calm voice “give me a list of remote systems on Kar Alabrek after that help me to see if any of the staff was a bit lazy on change any of the old codes” Hilgrif then started with the main systems but doubt any of them would work on them but it's better to be safe. After trying the main systems Shroud sent him a list of sub systems and they both got to work checking them. After about 20 minutes they found they had access to the gardening systems,emergency lights, and suprisingling the backup power systems for the com towers .Hilgrif gave a small smile when he found that last one . Hilgrif then set up a few programs to the devices he had found. Hilgrif set up the gardening systems to spray out ends water mist in the air thirty secs after he sets off the emergency lights to flash at a quick pace and this would all start as he use all the power in the backup systems in the com towers to hopefully overload the towers and shut down the coms for a short time. Hilgrif then turned on his com and spoke “distraction is ready send message when ready to deploy it”. Hilgrif received a quick reply back with just a simple affermitve then Hilgrif went back to recheck all the coding while Shroud silently kept looking for any more devices they could use for the distraction, after ten minutes later he received a quick message to start the distraction so Hilgrif went and activated it. He watched in relive as the datepad should the comms towers were fried then according to the read out he was getting it should all be working hilgrif hope it would keep busy while the team got in place
