Image
Remus manipulates a nearby corpse to pull the trigger on the weapon, firing wildly

Image
The soldiers fire into the pile of bodies, and rush to investigate

Image
Remus shifts away from the soldiers and hides in a different patch of foliage

Image
Another soldier thinks he noticed something moving, however

Image
He approaches...

Image
K'THUNK
Remus smacks him in the face with the urn, knocking teeth out and knocking him out cold

Image
He pulls the body away

Image
Left with few options,  he decides to don a disguise and hopefully slip away

Image
Having known that the Galacian Military doesn't allow peaches in it's rank,  he must conceal his identiy

Image
The Leader calls back for his troops
Army NCO: "FALL IN,  We're returning to base!"

Image
Remus Nonchalantly follows the rest of the soldiers,  not saying a word
Galacian Soldier 1: "Did you bag any?"
Galacian Soldier 2: "Finished one off,  yea"

Image
After about a 20 minute walk,  the squad comes up on a walled compound,  there are lots of soldiers camped outside and the area is buzzing with activity

Image
They pass several sentries,  they are sitting around smoking and having a good time. As the squad passes the sentries greet them

Galacian Machinegunner: "благо вас присоединиться к нам, дерьмо птицы. убить любые зеленые спины?" good of you to join us, shit birds. kill any green backs"

Galacian Soldier: "The tank blasted most of them,  but yea we bagged a few.  

Image
The sergeant stops the squad at the gate

Galacian Sergeant: "Everyone is free to go get some R&R.. You're all dismissed.  Stay out of trouble and keep your weapons near"

Image
The soldiers he had followed in all go their seperate ways, inside the base it appears to be quiet. a few troops and assistants are walking around. but there doesn't seem to be much else going on

Image
Remus is overwhelmed,  still in disbelief that he was able to slip into the base so easily,  he looks for a way to escape but he can't find a route that he won't get himself caught first.  As he's standing there looking around, a couple of military personnel are approaching, talking to one another in mid conversation

Assitant 1: "The Colonel is having all the loot they took from the bunker in he desert off world"
Assistant 2: "Isn't that violation of protocol?"
Assistant 1: "Are you going to complain to the Colonel?"
Assitant 2: "Fair point..."

Remus (To himself): "Bunker?... Desert?  it couldn't be?  Perhaps they found another piece... did they face a being like I had to?

Image
Suddenly a truck slams on it's breaks and nearly hits Remus,  the driver honks the horn and yells out the window

Driver: "MOVE OR I'LL F*CK'N BREAK SOMETHING"

Image
Then, an alarm goes off, which startles Remus at first. But the personnel around the base don't appear to be reacting to it. He figures it's just a lunch bell or something

Image
He walks up to the runway to see an assistant moving some barriers in front of a starfighter

Image
And then the starfighter starts to move forward out of the hangar

Image

Image
The door on the tower swings open and a bunch of men come outside,  one of them is dressed in an orange flight suit, probably a pilot. The fighter's canopy opens and the pilot jumps in and jets off

Image
Remus: "Probably off to strafe some more of those savages... As long as you're not here for me to deal with"

Image
He walks down the runway, and at the end he notices the others who came out of the building,  they are loading a transport shuttle full of what looks like loot from a raid. He approaches them

Image
One of the items in the box looks almost identical to the first urn he found. Remus deduces that this must be another piece of 3

Image
The men turn around and stare blankly at Remus,  he stands there stupified, not knowing what he's supposed to do,  and he then reasons that these men must be lowly laborers and that he may be able to send them off

Remus: "Uh, hey.  What's going on here,  are you supposed to be handling this stuff?"

Image
One of the men pulls out a piece of paper
Assistant: "Who's this wiseguy?  you see this?  this is orders straight from the colonel that we are to load these valuables onto his personal shuttle,  in other words, this is a permit to tell you to fuck off! Why don't you go back to smacking rocks together or jerking off in the latrines,  or whatever it is you grunts do!?"

Remus stumbles away

Image
He walks into a nearby building, and when he opens the door he see's several soldiers with their helmets off, realizing that this is a barracks or some kind of quarters,  he quickly backs up from the door and closes his visor

Image
Inside the soldiers are weightlifting, eating, talking.  A female soldier see's Remus at the door

Galacian Soldier: "Hey! we are just about to do shots. you will join us , yes?"

Remus; "uh,  I'll be right back.."

Image
He closes the door and scuffles away
Galacian soldier: "Who the hell was that?"

Image
He walks down to the next building where a bunch of camouflage clad troops exit in front of him, He almost hits them with his bayonet

Image
The soldiers become very angry
Galacian Recon Operator: "WHAT OF FUCK? You think you're some kind of hot shit walking around with that pig sticker? I should teach you a lesson!"

Image
Remus makes up some excuse to try to talk himself out of this confrontation

Remus: "Hey! Sorry!,  I bent the barrel of my gun and I can't get the blade to come off.  Im looking for the armorer"

Image
Galacian Recon Operator: "Are you for real?  is this guy for real?  The armory is RIGHT THERE" (He points to the door that they just came out of)
Galacian Recon Operator: "Unfortunately they don't keep replacement brains in stock for stupids"

Image
Another soldier in regular armor then starts screaming at the Recon guys
Galacian Drill Sergeant: "I'M SORRY, I WASN'T UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT YOU RECON BOYS DID UNIFORM INSPECTIONS OF MY RIFLEMEN, NOW GET!"

Outside the base
Image

A lone Insurgent drives at the base on a dirtbike, firing a pistol at the troops outside

Image
The soldiers scatter and the machinegunner starts firing all over the place

Image
THUUUUUMP
A soldier with a big missile launcher fires...

Image
KABOOM

Image
Everyone runs towards the gate to see what happened
P.A System: "PLEASE tell me you morons didn't just waste a zudnik on a fucking MOTORBIKE!. THAT'S COMING OUT OF YOUR PAY!"

Image
Remus slips away and goes back to the shuttle, where it is now deserted

Remus: "Oh yes, there's definitely a piece here"

Image
Remus: "Aha!... found you.  Except this one is still possessed... but there's no one around... No thrall body,  nothing.."

A weapon clicks off safety. And a voice blares over a voice modulator
Voice: "DON'T MOVE!"

Image
Remus freezes, he looks to the right and see's a Galacian soldier,  although he looks very different from the rest.  He says to him in a snide tone "So... which one are you,  the first,  or the second?"

Image
Remus turns, and the soldier steps forward, aggressively pointing his weapon at Remus
Shocktrooper: "I SAID STOP.  LAY THE WEAPON DOWN AND SURRENDER..... CENTRAL, UNIT 373 REQUEST BACKUP"
Computerized voice from Radio:" Unit 373 central acknowledges. please specify the nature of your request"
Remus:"Okay.. you're not one of them.."
Shocktrooper: "CENTRAL, UNIT 373 HAS APPREHENDED ROGUE ELEMENT TRESPASS ON RESTRICTED SHUTTLE, REQUESTING ORDERS"

Image
Remus starts to kneel down and pretends to lower his weapon
Remus: "Ok, this is just a misunderstanding, see?  I'm putting my weapon down,  you can call off central ok? I was just looking at the stuff.."

Image
Remus then causes a crate full of gold to come flying at the trooper

Image
CRASH
The crate utterly crushes him.

Image
Remus: "ha!, time to get out of here, I'm not going to get another break like that..."

He then hears heavy footsteps behind him.

Image
He turns around to see another of the Shocktroopers, this one even bigger than the first,  and carrying a huge shield

Remus: "Wonderful.."

Image
The Guardian just stands there motionless a few moments,  but then starts shaking and twitching violentley
Guardian: "SECTOR IS.... NOOOOOT SECURE... *Garbled radio noises"
The guardian then changes his speech pattern, no longer speaking in the semi robotic tone but now a very angry tone
The Second of Three YOU!, YOU WILL DIE!
Remus: "And there you are.."

Image
Not having a mage's body as a thrall this time, the Second can only use the Guardian's weapons and abilities to attack,  it starts shooting at Remus, and he runs for cover

Image
Remus goes to fire his weapon back, but the Second throws up the shield, Remus knows to think twice about trying to shoot a riot shield

Image
He pulls off the helmet.

Image
He charges up a magikal cast

Image
Emerging from cover he launches his magikal bolt at the shield and grapples it

Image
Yanking the shield from the Second's hand

Image
He then unloads the Pulse Rifle on the second...

Image
And gives him a blast of force magik for good measure

Image
The Guardian is knocked back and lays motionless. Remus think's it's over


Image
The Second then lurches back to life,

Remus: "Damn this body is a tank!"

Image
The Second charges at Remus. Remus sticks up his gun with the bayonet pointed ready to spear him

Image
In Mid sprint, the second smashes his gun and breaks the bayonet off

Image
And crashes into him. Remus is sent flying from the impact

Image
The Second then stops his onslaught a moment, to speak

The Second of Three: "You!. you are the one who defeated the Third!, and now you come after the Second!... You endanger everything!"

Image
Remus: "You should be worried, I''m going to put an end to the madness you are casting over this world..."

Image
The Second then shakes it's fist at Remus, lecturing him
The Second of Three: "FOOL!. You do not know!. Having only met the Third,  who was too arrogant to tell you himself, you do not know the purpose of the three!"

Remus: "Enlighten me.. beast"

The Second of Three: "The three keep shut the portal to the realm of the Unbidden!,  you defeated the Third and reduced the Three to Two,  already you have weakened our hold on the Unbidden, the uninvited!, The Unbidden will harvest this realm for all it's worth and your actions only seek to aid them!"

Remus: "Who are the Unbidden?"

Image
The second picks up the bayonet

The Second of Three: "You need not know anymore,  but understand this,  you have already done great harm to our mandate,  I will not allow you to bring us closer to harvest,  so for that you must die"

Image
The Second steps forward aggressively, intent on skewering Remus with the knife.... The shield then comes flying from behind him

Image
SLICE
The body is decapitated by the flying shield

Image
Remus stands,  grabbing both of the pieces and gets ready to get the hell out of there

Image
Distorted voice of the Second: "The lights of the galaxy will go out one by one,  and YOU. Declan Remus. Will be at fault. Make your peace... THE UNBIDDEN WILL COME!"

Image
Remus: "I fear no enemy... and you are defeated.."
He hears footsteps behind him again..

Image
He turns around and see's a Galacian soldier,  having seen Remus standing there without the helmet, and standing over dead bodies... He stands there motionless for a second,  and then quickly pulls a radio out of his belt and presses the transmit button

BEEP

This just keeps getting better and better! That's a huge base though, did you build it just for this?
