Letters to home: Vs Cryx and Retribution
It was a rough day. It started off with my unit just setting around cleaning the equipment. The Butcher has not come out of his tent since his defeat last week and no one wants to go in there. Kommander Sorscha showed up with some reinforcements. It seems word made it back about our defeat. Kommander Sorscha got the run down from one of the officers. She looked like she was going to head into the Butcher's tent but just walked by and started talking to our unit lead. It appeared that our lead was in disagreement with here. He seems to point several times toward the Butchers tent. 2nd came up next tom me and said that this will not end well. After our lead had finished with his argument Kommander Sorscha reached out with a hand and put it on his chest. His skin frosted over and she removed his insignia from his armor as he fell over. She then motioned for our 2nd to come over. She said a few things to him and promoted him to lead. When he walked back over he told me that I was promoted to 2nd and we where moving out. Later he told me that we are a weapon of the mother land and weapons do not talk back to our leaders.
The Elves that defeated us where reinforced and heading deeper into to the mother land and we are going to stop them. They where reinforced when we found them in the field. They however where not the only invaders. A Cryxian force was also in the field. Kommander Sorscha order us to advance at both units and destroy them. The fighting was rough and we where slow going. Cryx hit us on the flank where our jacks where. It was not good the fighting there and soon we watch 2 of our jacks turn into monsters. Our third jack cut one of the cryxian smaller jacks in half before it went down. My unit advanced toward the elf archers slowly. Our movement was hampered by terrain and magic. Our lead went down to a hail of arrows and I had to take command of the unit. Then Kommander Sorscha appeared to flee to the rear. Some in the unit seemed shaken. I yelled "For the Motherland, For the Empiress," and charged. The rest of the unit followed. We cut through the elves and I saw Kommander Sorscha take the Cryxian general down. I had knew that she was not fleeing the fight.
We advanced slowly into the elves thinning the numbers. One of thier jacks made it to the woods before we could charge it. Our snipers took shoots at it to try to keep it busy. We pressed out attack and Kommander Sorscha unleashed wintery hell on the enemies of the mother land. She seemed to fly across the field. I saw her run around our flank as the Elf war jack charged from the woods. She was moving so fast that it never came close to hitting her. We pressed our attack and Kommander Sorscha swung around the fight and engaged the elf general. Her movement, speed and power was amazing. She was a blur of destruction on the field She could not be hit and everything she engaged died. The enemy general was defeated and the rest of the elves fled. Good news is that we found our lead had just suffered some minor wounds and a system failure on his suite. Kommander Sorscha had him back up and running quickly.
We made it back to camp and before the Kommander left she looked at me and said you did your job and walked away. We celebrated that night like it would be our last because it very well might be.
Well Mom I have to go. Need to beat out some dents in the armor and we have a weapons test in the morning.
For the motherland.
