A Gathering of Clouds (Updated)

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

Meanwhile in the Geldborg Desert of Avalon....

Image
"Tidings are well, my master. Pendragon is dead and soon Nagirrac will join him. The other systems of the Brikverse are gathering to destroy Avalon. They will not last much longer."

Image
"Good. I see that virus you planted in the RIN ship's comm system worked well. The Avalonians are leaving the battle. Soon the Third Alliance will turn on them. Everything is working according to our plan. The gears are in motion. No one has suspected us from the start. These fools won't know they've been duped until its too late. "

Image
An irregular militia spies the ninja in the canyon during a regular patrol. If they only knew what these ninja had already accomplished to destroy the kingdom...

"Identify yourselves or we will take you into custody!"

Image
Image
The ninja are too quick for this poorly trained group.

Image
The spear man leaps down and begins to contend with the ninja.

Image
He fails to see the master sneak around him. Before he knows it, the master's chain weapon is wrapped around his neck.

Image
"ARGHHHH GACK!!!!!"

Image

Image
"Fools! See how they fall so easily? It shall be the same for all of Avalon soon enough. But we have yet a while to wait... Now, see that this message falls into the right hands. Not all of the invitations for our gathering have been sent..."

Ah, behind the scenes work. Not the style I prefer, but it seems to be working so far here. I actually hope that the ninjas fail. :)

Transmission 36.9845
Transmission Origin: Avalon High Council

Sky Marshal Myrna von Prussia, angered that the main Avalonian fleet had left the Prussians on their own, meets with the High Council to persuade them to send the fleet back.

Image
"As I said before, I will consider the matter once you've tried some of our fudge. Honestly woman, how can I even take you seriously?"

Image
"Dis is an outrage! Your kingdom vas going to replace our damaged ships und protect us from de peach virus und now you leave venn ve are vulnerable?"

Image
"Oh, pish posh. Avalon had troubles in the past and now look at us. We are the most powerful, most feared and respected empire in the whole galaxy."

"Hear hear!" joins a councilman.

Image
"Most feared? But you und your kingdom are de laughing stock of de whole Brikverse! Vere ist Nagirrac? He vill listen to reason unlike you und your lazy council. Komm, mein freunden, wir verlassen."

Image
"Well, I never! Can you believe how rude she was? After all, we're only trying to help them. Now, who are we supposed to meet with next?"

Image
"Ah, of course, please come in good sir!"

Image
"Now, we provided you with the defense codes so the AN can hurry up and occupy us." says the councilman. "Its time for you to pay up."

"You have done well..."

Image
"... as promised."

Image
"But before I allow you to take any of this treasure, tell me why you're willing to betray your own people?"

Image
"Oh, who cares? Just give me my share so I can get off this rock and move to Assyria."

Image
"My apologies, gentlemen, but I have altered the deal slightly."

Image
Two ninja pop out of the bushes and attack the guards.

"NO! You've double crossed us!"

Image
"Security! Please save us!"

Image
"No! Please! I'll pay your five times as much as he does!"

Image
"ACCCCCGGGKKKKK!!!!"

Image
"You are a disgrace! No honor! No sense of loyalty!"

"Loyalty? And do you really believe that you're in the position to lecture me on loyalty? Off with his head."

Image

Image
"What's our next move, master?"

"Gather the citizens that would reject our gathering. Exterminate them."

Image
The Avalonian High Council has fallen.

Image
Meanwhile, Myrna and her Ghost Division escort arrive at their secret location to be picked up.

"Kann you believe vat he said? Ve don't need their help? Dat ist ein gross outrage!"

Image
Shots fire. Myrna is nearly killed.

"Vere did that komm from?"

"Over dere, mein kommander!"

Image
A large host starts running from the woods.

Image
It is a combined force of AN PAX Corps, Zupponn Mining Co. enforcers and Menggu Rebels.

Image
"OPEN FIRE auf den sheissKopfs!" screams the sky marshal. The opposing sides trade volleys until...

Image
...Beta Group personnel arrive and support the Prussians.

Image
"Vhy are dey attacking us? Prussia ist still ein member of de AN!"

"They must have mistaken you for an Avalonian."

Image
They were the last words the man ever spoke.

Image
The opposing force was getting closer. It wouldn't be long before the Avalonians and Prussians would be overrun.

Image
A Menggu Slasher attacks Myrna. She deflects his blow with her energy shield.

Image
Then she makes sure to cut off his hand...

Image
...and teach the rebel a lesson he would never forget for the rest of his short, short life.

Image
Another slasher was ready to finish the job his comrade could not.

Image
A PAX soldier and Menggu laid a barrage of fire on the Prussians.

Image
That was, until one of them noticed something shiny that had just been tossed to him.

Image
BOOM!

Image
The grenades gave the Prussians just enough time to start firing back.

Image
The PAX commander looked around to see who had thrown the grenades.

Image
Two Avalonian spies leapt from behind a rock and began to fire on the invaders.

Image
A PAX soldier fell easily.

Image
The spies advanced.

Image
Myrna was busy fighting the other slasher when...

Image
... one of the Ghosts made her job a bit easier.

Image
"Hurry mein kommander!"

Image
Image
The PAX commander was a great shot. He eliminated the spies without delay.

Image
The two sides traded volleys.

Image
The Prussians and Beta Group managed to bring the enemy down.

Image
But the AN lackey was not going down without bring the Avalonians to their knees.

Image
Myrna, fed up that the enemy was still alive, decided to throw her beam saber at him.

Image
In an alternate universe, she would have made a great softball player.

Image
The invaders were defeated. The survivors surveyed the field.

Image
"I used to play here when I was a kid." said the Beta Group specialist. "All we ever wanted was peace."

"Not in die Brikverse." said Myrna.

Image
an unseen figure peeked over the bushes, pleased with the carnage that lay before him.

"Perfect."
