Holidays are over

VS PanOceania

"Sir, we recieved a telegram addressed to you, the matter is urgent I'm afraid" the butler lowered the silver tablet with his white gloved hand enabling Lt. Hademar to retrieve the elegantly folded paper. This Resort really followed the theme of the late 1890ies to the point. But after whilst reading the message his mood dropped deep below sea level.
"We got a message from the High Command that due to... circumstances... our holidays are cancelled and we have to report back..." Lt. Hadema uttered at his fellow Moderators. "So chop! chop! guys we're meeting in two at the exit!"
Two hours later the Moderators, a Riot Grrl, a Reverend Moira with an orphan in her following and Bran gathered near the beach side exit. "Sir? Sir?! Why in Mother Mary's name are tere ORCs gathering in the woods?" "Heee?! The fantasy themed hotel is not even close, what do you mean Sister Andromachi? Oooh... verdammt! The PanOceanian ORCs! Good question let's just pretend we didn't notice them" Hademar replied confoundedly.

"Guys! I guess we might need your help here! We somehow crossed their path and now we can't shake them off, I even lost one of my JackBots but I could set off a distraction with it! :D" Fiddler laughingly yelled at Hademar's bunch whilst zipping around them.
After seeing Fiddler, Uhahu, Denma appear, together with a Vostok Sputnik and a Vertigo Zond Lt. Hademar was out of words. "Whaaaaaat is happening here? Why is half of StarCo around? And WHICH DISTRACTION?! FIIIIIDDLEER!?!" One of his questions got suddenly answered by blaring sirenes and the announcement about a chlorine gas leakage in one of the pools' maintenence facilities.
"Let the 'fun' begin" Hademar mumbled to himself whilst accessing his internal tactics databank. "OK troops assemble according to the tactics info on your commlinks we're heading out of here! Forget the HazMat gear there's no time for that!"

The bird's eye view of the resort where Hademar and his, by now, platoon had had their holidays

Clashing interests

The panoceanian Forces assembled at the tree line (ORC and Vargar fireteam) and within (Bulleteer & Varg Engineer duo) or atop (Haris of Feuerbach Karhu & Fusilier with Agnes agrond) the several buildings whilst a single Fugazi guarded one of the Safe Spots.
Hademar's thrown together bunch deployed on a landing boat (Grrl & Moderators Fireteam together with a Daktari) behind or in several woods (Bran who failed his infiltration and Fiddler on the other flank) the Orphan Haris and Denma readied themselved behind the beach Bar whilst Uhahu and the Vertigo went into hiding in contact with to another Safe Spot

Run! Run! Run!

After Conolly's and the Morlock's fast advance towards the Panic Room the Riot Grrl made good use of her Missile Launcer by atomizing the opponent's Feuerbach-Karhu. Thanks to the Morlock's smoke screen, and therefore not being seen by the opponent forces the Orphan Haris advanced into the room placing the Vostok as forward as possible whilst the Orphan and Sister Andromachi took cover. Fiddler advanced through the Woods towards the big building on the right flank and was able to destroy the opponent's Safe Spot situated inside their building leaving the opponent's EVO Mule unprotected whilst ducking into cover. The opponent's ORC hacker wasn't able to isolate the overextended JackBot though. An attempt to neutralize the opponent's Fugazi by the Morlock failed since they were too far away from each other.

Side note: the Orphan was bested by the Beach Bar's temptations and ended up stunned in the Panic Room... clearly no good show of discipline in the Observance's ranks

Due to being deprived of their normally excellent Marksman the Winterforce had to reorganise. Thusly the ORC and Vargar Team transitioned from their position towards the Grrl's flank. During this transition they weren't able to kill the Morlock in the Panic Room or neutralize the JackBot but also stayed untouched by Uhahu's attempts of Spotlighting them. But their luck vanished as soon as they faced the Grrl and the Fireteam got substantially decimated. Thusly the remaining ORC and Varg repositioned themselves in order to prepare for the bakunians' future moves.
Agnes advanced towards the Panic Room whilst dragging the linked Fusilier into his demise by the Grrl's Missile Launcher

On the right flank some repositioning of the EVO Mule happened, followed by a hard and succesful attack by the supported Bulleteer against the JackBot. Unfortunately for the Panoceanians the overpriced REM succumbed to the JackBots Vulcan flamer.

Basically Safe

Without opposition the Moderators were able to position themselves around the left-hand Safe Spot whilst Bran and the Morlock, supported by Denma's smoke grenade performed further "cleaning activities aka. Bran knocking the Varg unconcious, the Morlock killing Agnes with the Assault Pistol followed by knocking the last ORC unconcious too. Fiddler on the right flank was furthermore able to fatally wound the Karhu engineer who was in close range to the Bulleteer.

This left the Svalarheimians woth only the Evo Mule and the Fugazi which forced the PanOcian commanedr to concede the attack.

In game terms this means Bakunin won the encounter against the SWF with 7:0 OP and 297:22 VP ':D

Remember Nomads: Free the Willies! I mean... Save the Pilots by liberating Montálban!
