Faced with distractions at Montalban, the 12th Armored ended up pulling from a wider net of assets under general O-12 jurisdiction when called to deal with a Hassassin presence at Edda. The O-12 team consisted of several Roadbots and bikes, figuring that a rapid assault force would be most effective. They were supported by a Lynx MSR in hiding, a Raveneye, an Alpha unit, two Varangians, and Ensign Katherine Cho posing as a Cyberghost.
The Hassassin force once again featured McMurrough – note to Aleph: we should REALLY find whoever is cloning McMurrough. He is showing up at too many fights! – with a Fiday, some Ghulams and a Barid, and a Muyib fireteam featuring two HRLs and an Lt.
Turn one was once again mine. With some luck, the varangians provided a smokescreen on the righthand flank of the field. Meanwhile, the Lynx MSR took one Muyib HRL down to Dogged. The Roadbot with Marksman Rifle took the other one to Dogged. Fearing taking unnecessary fire and overextending, the Starmada force did not push the advance, and let the Muyibs fall.
This proved to be a mistake.
McMurrough came crashing through the O-12 line. While both Roadbots were taken out in single shots to rockets and panzers, McMurrough eviscerated the Varangians. He then crashed through to steal the O-12 beacon, and managed to lob a grenade onto the unsuspecting Alpha.
Thankfully, Cho could take over command to keep the fight semi-in control. Unfortunately, the motorized bounty hunter had to spend several orders chasing down McMurrough. With most of the orders used up by the time McMurrough fell, a lawkeeper took forward position but nothing else happened.
