Remus calls on a spell to magikally switch back into his normal armor, like a boss
Image20170612_224459 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Left without his staff, he shoots the soldier, but the jig is up. Shouts erupt across the base and a klaxon alarm blares from every loudspeaker in the area

Computerized voice via loudspeaker: "Attention please... Unidentified person of interest detected in this sector, Ground units ; response code green

Image20170612_224744 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

An armored vehicle and multiple soldiers open fire on him,

Image20170612_224956 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Remus quickly fires back,  missing his mark but hitting a fuel pump.

Image20170612_225223 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
KABOOM
The pump explodes,  killing the soldiers and  rocking the truck with the shockwave

Image20170612_225636 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
*Engines revving*
Driver: "Fuck this, we're going to ram this clown"
The Truck peels away, tires squealing and smoke billowing as the truck beams towards Remus, he flees

Image20170612_225834 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr


Image20170612_225944 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
He turns around and blue energy emits from his hand
Remus: "Watch this!"
Image20170612_230041 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
*Poof!*
He briefly turns himself invisible,  and dives out of the way,  the truck takes off in search of him

Image20170612_230230 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
He hides behind another vehicle and contacts the rest of his men at the outpost

Remus: Outpost, come in. I am in dire need of your assistance.

Image20170612_230505 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Back at the outpost, the remaining Magikstrate troops recieve his transmission

IM Sergeant: "Yes sir, we read you, what do you require?"
Remus: "I have a major task to ask of you,  I am pinned a Republic base,   I do not have time to explain,  but I have artifakts of extreme danger that need to be taken off world, I am without my staff. I require you to bring me a crystal so that I can complete the mission.  But it's going to require you to engage the GR forces... You understand what this means?"
IM Sergeant: *stammering* "Uh.. yes.  yes sir, it will be done."

Image20170612_230531 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
IM Trooper: "Did he really just ask us to do that?"
IM Sergeant: "Whatever they found today,  must have been worth risking war over..Better be"
IM Trooper: "That's an understatement..."

Image20170612_230653 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The troops assemble outside the factory

IM Sergeant: "Men!. the inspector has called on us to assist him in the gravest of missions,  one that could cost us our lives and lead the Empire into a war. But that does not absolve us of our duty, our commander has discovered items of great danger that he must remove from this planet by any means necessary!...  Our orders are to reach him.. inside the Galacian army base..  The only way we have a chance at this is if some stay behind to draw their forces out of the base. We have no heavy weapons so we have to keep them occupied, but not so much that they start sending armor and artillery after us. Henrik, Daniel, you two will do this,  the rest will follow me into the woods where we were try to force ourselves into the base, preferably not through the front gate... That is all

IM Soldiers: "For the empire!"

Image20170612_231210 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Shortly after,  the distraction team emerges at the edge of the woods into an empty field, with Galacian troops patrolling the outskirts of the base,  debris from the earlier cultist attack still scattered

Image20170612_231557 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
IM Sergeant: *via communicator*  "Commence the operation!"
IM Soldier: "here goes.."

The IM troops fire wildly out of the bushes and tall grass.  frequentley changing position giving the impression that there are more than they are.

Image20170612_231626 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
A GR soldier gets hit by the shatter fire and the others scatter from the fire

GR Soldier: "Ugh!"
GR Soldier 2: "Incoming!"

Image20170612_231830 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The GR troops regroup and start firing into the woods
GR Soldier: "Contact at hardpoint sundown, all units advance for contact and engage!"

Image20170612_231922 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
During all the gunfire, the rest of the team move out on their mission

Image20170612_232120 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
SNAP
While advancing toward the base,  out of nowhere a pulse blast rips through a trooper
IM Sergeant: "Sniper!"

Image20170612_232225 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
They all rush towards the road, doing their best to avoid the sniper fire

Image20170612_232504 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Reaching some basic cover, they quickly stagger themselves and scan for the sniper

Image20170612_232541 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
IM Trooper: "We don't have time to hunt him down... just fire into the treeline!"

The troops start firing their shatterguns into everything that could possibly be hiding someone

Image20170612_232726 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
After a few bursts, the sniper gets blasted in the chest and dies ungracefully next to a digger bucket

GR Sniper: "AAAAH!"

Image20170612_233017 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Meanwhile on the other side of the mountains,  the Distraction team is holding their own, having killed several already.

Image20170612_233040 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
IM Trooper: "Hey, this isn't so bad afterall,  so much for the suicide mission"

Image20170612_233129 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
IM Trooper 2: "Wait... didn't he say not to attract too much attention?"

IM Trooper: "Uh..."

Image20170612_233445 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Having aggro'd the GR too much,  the distraction team are gunned down by recon commandos flanking them in the forest

IM Trooper: "OHHHHH, NO!"

Image20170612_233603 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Back at the wall...

IM Sergeant: "I thought you said you knew how to drive this thing? You just set off every perimeter alarm in the base!"
IM Trooper: "I didnt say that at all!, you just told me to put it through the wall"
IM Sergeant: "With a little finesse maybe!"
IM Trooper 2: "Sergeant, the others.. the gunfire stopped,"
IM Sergeant: "You know what happened..."
IM Trooper: "Blaze of glory!"
Image20170612_233853 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Inside the walls, the remnants of the team rush toward's Remus' position, fighting defenders along the way

Image20170612_234009 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
They turn the corner to a surprised Remus

IM Sergeant: "Here! we found him!"
Remus: "Finally!.  Wait,  you're all that's left? Where are the others?"
IM Sergeant: "Some of the men are covering our flank"
IM Trooper: "You heard that thunderstorm of gunfire?  Some of us had to stay behind,  how else did you think we were going to slip into the base with no heavy ordinance?"

Image20170612_234057 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Remus takes the crystal out of the trooper's shattergun

Remus: "There's no time,  I don't have a staff so this will have to do,  these artifacts have to be sent to containment immediately!"

Image20170612_234142 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
He places the crystal onto the artifakts and ties them together,  giving them a jolt of magik, the items poof into thin air. and are teleported off the planet into a nearby starship to be sent to secure containment

Remus: "That's it!.  it's done!.  There's another one out there,  but this is the most we could accomplish with our backs against the wall,   it's time for us to get out of here

Image20170612_234256 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The troop guarding their flank, is gunned down, and Galacian troops advance.

Galacian Lieutenant: "Fan out, and find the rest of them!"
Image20170612_234334 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
IM Sergeant: "They're coming!"

Image20170612_234433 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The Galacian troops advance down the path,  and come up behind the Magikstrate force, guns drawn

Galacian Squad Leader: "Don't fukken move!"
Galacian Lieutenant: "Ah this must be the little cyka that has been scampering around our base... I'll get promoted for your heads..

Image20170612_234503 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Outgunned and mostly unarmed, the IM troops go to surrender
Image20170612_234531 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Seizing an opportunity, Remus blasts a magik missile into the shatter crystal, causing it to explode and melt everything in it's path

Image20170612_234655 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
BOOM
Image20170612_234804 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
They make a mad dash for the exit

Remus: "Come!, we don't have the time or the weapons to fight our way out!"

Image20170612_234905 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
They reach the gate and open it
Image20170612_234916 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The door grinds and rumbles as it slides open
IM Trooper: "Can't believe it's over I..."

Image20170612_235043 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
POOOM
IM Trooper: "EYYAAHH!"
As soon as the door opens, one of the troopers is blasted with some kind of energy explosion and flies backwards, killing him
Image20170612_235543 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
*the sounds of several clicks and beeps as a group of elite Galacian troops train their weapons on the Inspector's team*
Waiting outside are several very dangerous looking warriors,  with big guns, hulking power armor,  and some who appear to be using some kind of magik themselves.  Backed up by heavy armor

Image20170612_235648 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Remus: "Gentlemen,  I think we're finished.."

Image20170612_235724 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The crowd seperates,  a minifig in black armor and red cape approaches

Image20170612_235751 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Image20170612_235812 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Bogatyr Lukash: "In the name of Supreme commander Shulga, you are under arrest.. Magikstrate!

Image20170613_000140 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Remus: "We've done what we came to accomplish... This is a misunderstanding and we really meant no harm to you and yours, but what is done is done. Now You can either let us leave in peace. Or lead yourselves to ruin with war with the Magikstrate and it's formidable allies... do you really want to do this?"

Lukash: "Make no mistake, Mage. whether you leave here in shackles or in a bag... War is already a certainty, Your Tharcan puppet masters think us to be a pushover, that we'll roll over at the first sign of their arrival. They are gravely mistaken,  and you are just another puppet who's been led to his own demise, But it doesn't have to be this way.. surrender, and you have my word that you will walk out alive, Your compatriots too..

Remus: "How noble,  for someone making threats and boasts,  talking about an assured war"

Lukash: "The die has already been cast, What's been done cannot be undone.  Your nation is soon to become the unfortunate collateral damage of a greater conflict.  Galacia had no quarrel with you.. until now... and all things considered.. well,  you chose your side. And there's no backing down now.. So I say again,  surrender yourselves to our custody.  or die here now like the rest of those who followed you here.

Image20170613_000205 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
BZZZT
IM Trooper: "AAAAHHH!!!!!"

One of the Panicked Magikstrate troops draws his blade and charges
Image20170613_000333 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The Bogatyr quickly jolts to his left noticing the trooper drawing a blade

Image20170613_000402 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The Magikstrate trooper swings at him...

Image20170613_000434 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
swiftly dodged, and in one fell motion the Bogatyr pulls a sword of his own..
Image20170613_000512 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
.. And decapitates him

Image20170613_000526 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The Sergeant draws his weapon and fires into the crowd in anguish
IM Sergeant: "NO!"

Image20170613_000644 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The shatter shards bounce and plink harmlessly off the hulking power armored troops in front
Image20170613_000835 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The Sergeant is gunned down by the troops, and in a quick motion Remus blasts the sword from the Bogatyr's hands..

Image20170613_000913 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
And charges at him with a blade of his own..

BZZZZT...

Image20170613_001029 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Bogatyr Lukash pulls another weapon, a deadly OT Beamsaber.. and impales Remus in the abdomen

Remus: "Ugh...  n.  no.. not like this"

Image20170613_001121 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Lukash: "You'll live... you'll regret living after you've see the consequences of what your superiors sent you here to do today,  from the inside of a Stalag cell that is,  you don't get to bow out with a glorious death my friend..

Remus: "You're not ..my friend"

Lukash: "Hah,  how observant"

Image20170613_001322 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Lukash: "Sergeant,  take this one to the shuttle.  Have the psioniks restrain him,  no funny business. And get a channel open to central command ready for when I board."
GR Elite Shocktrooper: "Yes, Guardsman!"

Image20170613_001506 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The Bogatyr, and his escorts walk off, dragging the gravely wounded Remus along with them. his ultimate fate uncertain, and in a few short hours, War is likeley

Wow, what a finish. This was an amazing read! R.I.P. Magikstrate soldiers. I am really excited for this war.

The meta discussions of brik politiks kind of influenced the direction of this,  midway through it was decided that it would end in a direct conflict between the GR and IM as several members of the community were trying to kick off a war against IM, Poland, etc.  This was mine,  although I am planning 1 or 2 standalone soaps to follow this one,  and eventually probably some battles or forum battles.  time permitting

Wow, great job! I actually expected the IM to get away until the last second, so cool plot twist there! Also, I like how the IM troops sit behind cover instead of hiding behind it, like "eh, it's just another war zone..."
