"Oh, that sounds rather interesting" :) "If I survive till the morning, I'll take you up on that offer, thanks" :) "I gotta survive this combat, get back and survive dinner, and who knows what after that, but, hopefully" :)

Sensing that combat was near Sin checked all her stuff and started some basic exercises to prepare herself, her body and mind, for combat. Simple breathing exercises, and small hand movements were it.

"I've only read the first book, to be honest." Sam said. "Heard the sequels were rather... dry in comparison. Herbert did a great job fleshing out his universe, but when it came to actual story-telling, well, it can be a bit underwhelming. Though it's still a masterpiece compared to the sequels and prequels his son wrote, from what I've heard."

Sam was about to recommend some more of Earth's classic science fiction novels, written before contact with either the Drow or the Scrin had been made - Foundation and Starship Troopers both came to mind - when he felt the Ox descend.

"We've now begun our final descent to the Scrin tower, landing in less than a minute. Hold on to your butts, ladies and gentlemen."

This is it. Sam thought. The next... what, half hour, will decide everything.

As the Ox landed and its entry bay door opened, Sam grabbed his GD-10 and started to run for the exit.

"Alright people! As Lieutenant Fullerton would say, time to load and lock, and roll and rock!" Sam shouted over his suit's radio, before pausing awkwardly. "Aaand, maybe he was the only one who could get away with saying that. No wait, Havoc could too. Anyway, let's roll!"

Once Joey herd that the main force were about to land near the tower, he aimed at the fuel nozzle that was still connected to the Flame-Tank.He took deep breathes to slow his hart rate. Whale exhaled, he slowly pressed the trigger till his rifle fired. The armor piercing incendiary round went out the barrel at almost twice the speed of sound. It hit it's target, igniting fuel, causing the tank and the the fuel station to burst into a large ball of fire.

Even thought the sniper team were 100 meters away and were wearing environmental suits, they can still feel the heat. "Wow, that worked a lot better then I thought."

"That was awkward." He'd mentally prep himself and waited for touchdown and the doors to open. (Short post)

Sin walked out of the dropship and looked around, there were bound to be enemies and cover here, and probably enemies in cover.

But then there was a massive explosion of fire "Oooh, pretty :)"

Sam whistled as he saw the jet of flame shoot into the air. One of our boys must've gotten lucky and taken out a flame tank or something. Turning back towards the Scrin tower, Sam started running, his power-armor greatly increasing his speed.

"Almost there... almost there. Just a few minutes to stop Armageddon." After about a minute of running, he and the other soldiers arrived at the entrance of the alien tower. Sam took a deep breath and stepped forward, almost fearful of what he would find. As if on cue, the tower's doors slid open, revealing a poorly-lit, purplish blue hallway. Just as he was about to step in, he saw something new appear on his HUD. The words "SCRIN TOWER INTERNAL MAP" stood before him, underneath which was, well, exactly what the words had said. For half a second, he wondered how he was getting this info, until he remembered the scout teams already in the tower, as well as intel that the Brotherhood of Nod was willing to share for this mission. Inhaling again, he walked into the alien structure.

"Alright, ladies and gentlemen." he said over his radio, his voice betraying none of his fear. "We have a heretic to burn."

It don't take long for the enemy personnel to recover themselves and recognize Sam squad heading tower. One of heretics manage to fire a rocket at them, but luckily it missed its target.

Shynt made sure that he would never fire his weapon again, as he sent a match grade round into the extremist head. He then set his sights on a brotherhood sniper. When the bullet hit right through the Nod's rib cage, he staggered and went over the guard rail. He fell on to other cultists trying to set up a machine-gun , killing them both.

He was about to take out another enemy, when he saw buggy speeding towards the commandos. "Juster! Buggy at 700 meters , 2 o'clock! "

"Im on it!" Joey said before firing. The anti-material bullet hit one of the vehicles back wheels, causing it to swerve then flip over several times, crushing a few brotherhood soldiers in the process. The Italian/Irish sniper then chuckled . "Wow did these guys got their driver license from Ch-" Shynt interrupted him. "No time for jokes! We got more enemy personnel and vehicles heading towards our guys!

Carl would dash when the doors opened, glancing at the fireball with a smile, wishing he could enjoy it better, "I'm gonna want someone's helmet cam of that afterwards." He could barely hear the rocket coming towards them when he already started to duck down lower as he ran, when the rocket passed right by them and heard the explosion. "Anyone hit?" He would scan the hallway they entered with his rifle, having stopped from his dash from the Ox to the Tower. He'd start to study the map, "Well then it's convenient that there's a bonfire outside right now."

Sin walked in through the open doors, not rushing so much, just keeping some vague formation. It wouldn't do to lose party cohesion this early in the campaign. The rocket didn't have her name on it anyway, just some strange name she'd never heard of, probably a NOD or SCRIN arms manufacturer.

"Why do they label their rockets with their own names? Do they want them to hit themselves? That bonfire was a rather pretty way to start this mission though wasn't it. I do wonder what's ahead of us. I hope it'll be that pretty as well"

"Alright, now that the introductory fireworks have died down, let's get to business. Don't want some numpties who make Jillian Bacardi look sane to start the apocalypse now, do we?" Sam heard some snickering over his radio at that comment - mostly from Seamus and Vanara - as well as a few voices going "who?".

"Oh, Jillian. What would the world be like without her?" Seamus said while laughing.

"Probably a lot saner." Vanara added with a chuckle. "But not as funny."

Sensing confusion from more of the soldiers, Sam finally explained.

"Jillian was some internet radio host back in Tib War III who was, quite frankly, batshit crazy. She believed that the Steel Talons, the Jaal'darya, and the squirrels in her front yard were jointly conspiring to give her a nacho cheese enema." Sam paused. "Okay, that's a bit of a stretch, but not by much. She really did think that the Steel Talons and Jaal'darya were jointly conspiring against her." Why anyone would believe that a division of GDI mecha pilots and a clan of Drow geneticists would work together to make their life hell was beyond Sam, but hey, no one ever said that a kook's theories had to make sense. "Now, could we please focus on-". Before Sam could finish, the sound of machine gun fire echoed throughout the halls. "Shit. They know we're here. Guess there's no point being discreet anymore. Alright ladies and gentlemen, change of plans." Sam brought his GD-10 up. "We go in, and slaughter everyone in black-and-red armor who stands between us and Gideon. Now go!"

Shynt and Joey contended continued to take out the more enemy personnel while the the rest of of the GDI troops move in to the Nod base.

Any tango that was dumb enough to act like Rambo got taking out by the Shynt. Others that thought they were in proper cover got a 800 grain gift form Joey. It was easy fight…maybey to easy. "Something not right. I thought intel said that these guys would better trained then this " " I know what you mean. It feel like we'er falling for a trap."

They then both heard one of there traps go off.

"You mean slaughtering Nod wasn't the original plan?" Carl would keep advancing with his rifle up and at the ready. He would stop when he saw movement down the way, "Is the Recon team still inside?" his safety was off and his finger went from resting on the trigger guard to hovering just over the trigger.

"Of course slaughtering the Nod wasn't the original plan." Sin was walking along behind Carl, not quite the last member of the party, bit distinctly not the first. These narrow twisty corridors made her wonder if the Nod/Scrin had Duergar or Xuile'solen on their side, they could be nasty in tight places like these. She much preferred being out in the open, it made things like dodging, and creeping up behind people so much easier.

"Oh, it might have been the original plan actually, but that plan went out the window as soon as Maya walked into the briefing room." Sin smiled at that memory "Now the plan is to survive winning this in good enough shape to take her out to dinner, and survive that also, as well as whatever may happen after that :)"

"Hate to break it to ya, Sin, but Nod clergy take vows of chastity. I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell of that date happening. Now then could-" Before Sam could finish, his HUD flashed a warning sign. Enemy contacts, closing in rapidly. Twenty meters, at the most. Shit. thought Sam, as he took cover in an alcove. He looked at his HUD again. The enemy was closer now. Fifteen meters, at the most. Alright. Stay frosty. You don't want-

"KILL THE INFIDELS!" he heard someone yell, and the sound of machine gun fire soon followed.

And that's my cue. Sam thought, grabbing his GD-10's trigger. "All Units! Open Fire!" Sam popped out of the alcove, and squeezed his rifle's trigger, unleashing a rain of magnetically-accelerated depleted uranium slugs upon the advancing militants. The projectiles easily pierced the light armor the Heretics were wearing, splintering bone and shredding flesh in the process. A particularly unlucky soldier's head exploded as the hypersonic slugs passed through his helmet. "Man, talk about a splitting headache."

"Sam... that was terrible." Seamus said over his radio, before unleashing another volley on the Heretics.

"You really expected anything else?"

"...No."

"So I don't see what you're complaining about!" Sam ducked behind the alcove and reloaded his GD-10. Might need to go into one of the heavier modes soon. He thought, looking at his HUD again. More Heretics were coming, and he wasn't sure if normal ammo would be enough. Mode 2 seems good, should things get hairy. Oh, what type of grenade to use? Fragmentation? Sonic? Incendiary? Blue Tiberium? Decisions, decisions...

Joey activated his comps and committed to the 2 troopers guarding the doorways."James, Daniel, do we have company?" "I can tell sir. There dust all over the place." "Wait, do you hear that?" "Yah, it sound like OH SHIT!!"

The next thing the two snipers heard was more of a flamethrower followed by the streams of the troopers then some gun fire and explosions."Unit lost"

Both Joey and Shynt pulled out there pistols. Waiting for the Nod fanatics popped through the door. Instead one of the troopers came running in. Burn marks was on his armor. He took cover behind the wall and then tried to speak while breathing heavily. "James is dead.."huff huff "But I..I manage to blow up one of those flame-thrower fuckers! " huff huff " But there's more for them" "How many?" " 2 squads.. maybe more."

They heard the brotherhood going up the steps to their position.Shynt pulled another antipersonnel mine and placed it next to the doorway. " Then we got to get out of here and call in a air strike ."
