PSI-OPS, MERCENARY DAYS
Fight to the Ruins
The Party left the captured docks and headed up the trail to the Ruins in the center of the Island. Shortly after leaving the docks the hear the noises of a heavily armored patrol heading down the trail towards them. The Party hid in the woods off both sides of the trail waiting to ambush the patrol. A lightly armored scout in the patrol caught a glimpse of someone in the woods. The scout mistook the Party for the patrol that was supposed to replace them. The patrol thought the Party is the other patrol just trying to play a trick on them or just slacking off in the woods instead of doing there job. A Party member came out of hiding and tried to Bluff that he is with the other group of soldiers on patrol. Unfortunately for him the soldiers all know each other. A battle broke out that left only one of the patrol mercs left alive. The Party Intimidated their captive into helping them with the soldiers further up the trail. The Merc provided them with the basic layout and force size of the camp up ahead. The Party ambushed the enemy camp and a Party member used Diplomacy to convince some mercs to turn on their employers with the promise of better pay. The Party convinced the handful of remaining mercs to help them assault the entrance to the Ruins. The enemy at the entrance to the Ruins had researchers they were holding captive. The hadn’t been able to enter the Ruins yet. The Party had to take out the enemy while trying not to hurt any of the researchers that were chained to their guards. After a mock battle between the Party and the newly recruited members, the Party was able to draw away half the guards from the research team. The rest of the Party that had been hiding launched an ambush that decimated the guards that had come to help the mercs. The Party and mercs then made quick work of rescuing researchers and defeating the last of the guards. The Party rested at the entrance to the Ruins while they waited for the other groups to arrive.
