Competition: Special Operation Palisade: The battle for the Oasis

Special Operation Palisade: The battle for the Oasis

As you enter into the secure conference area in Deathwatch bunker, an audible gasp escapes your lips. There had to have been over a hundred personnel crammed into the briefing and you find it is standing room only. Taking up a spot in the corner you glance hurriedly around, seeing perhaps almost the entirety of Clan Vizsla’s military and strategic leadership assembled here. In front of you, situated in the center of all this chaos stood Quaestor Shimrah and Aedile Raistlin. Though they had many droids and beings around them, they dispersed almost immediately after your entrance, and the lights began to dim…..

“Thank you all for coming.” Raist began,

“As if we had a choice.” You hear someone mutter, though barely audible

“Today begins Special Operation Palisade. Since we have made our home here on Korus, the Oasis, has beckoned to me like a siren. It belongs to the Gal’um no longer!” Raist bellowed to applause.

“I care not how you take it, our esteemed Quaestor thinks these savages can be bartered with and if so, I would love to see it.” Raist said, gesturing to Shim next to him

“Should we engage, I will lead from the front, and House Deathwatch will claim the Oasis at any cost!” More applause this time deafening.

“Do not fail me. I expect the Deathwatch banner to be flying over the Oasis within a fortnight. DISMISSED!!!”


Hello and welcome to what I hope is a recurring comp series. This month is a fiction comp for the Oasis

Rules are as follows:

Standard fiction grading metric I have rolled a d10. Should we get that number of participants or above, the operation will succeed. Otherwise we will fail

Any method that results in success is fine, military options don’t have to be the only option.

Besides clan npc’s and personal possessions. You have at your disposal: Nox Company and all Deathwatch ground assets

No ships are to be used for fear of damaging the Oasis

500 word minimum

TL:DR Submit fictions, 500 words or better, don’t use space ships, fight (or debate with) the Gal’um Good luck!
