FADING DRAGON

The Empire of Yeuzuishan
A once prosperous magical asian empire with a highly heterogenic population of humans and demihumans, it has recently fallen on hard times.

There was the caste system, introduced during the 13th Emperor's reign. Commonly known as the Bei Lun System, after the Imperial Advisor who had propagated the system to the Emperor back in those long bygone days, it was originally intended to increase productivity and simplify social interaction within the Empire by sorting the different people of the Empire into different castes. Strong demihumans would be sorted into the warrior and the builder caste, flight capable demihumans often into the courier caste, arachnid demihumans into the spinner and tailor caste etc. The only exception from this would be humans. Since they had no specialisation in any sector like demihumans had, they were broadly distributed to fill in gaps where they were lacking. This system, as well as the Imperial Bloodline's status as humans, eventually led to human supremacist sentiments due to their higher flexibility in how they could live their lives untill they eventually just created a separate, human caste, standing above all others. Bei-Lun's caste system, meant to bring cooperation between castes and a higher efficiency due to specialisation, was perverted into a system where one race, one caste, would lord over all others.

Then there was a vast overreliance on magic and tradition. Magic was not an uncommon trait among the people of Yeuzuishan and as such it supplemented many daily tasks and amenities that were covered by newly and always more inventive technologies in less magically inclined civilisations. Of course simple overreliance on magic can still lead to fast progress, the Progress just being made in the realm of Magic rather than technology. That wasn't quite the case in Yeuzuishan, due to an aggressively propagated, traditionalist ideology by the humans. It was simple strategic thinking. While magic was very much present among humans too the demihumans were on average more gifted with it or had more magic users. As such it wasn't within the interest of the human population to have magic be developed far beyond what they had, in order to Keep the gap in power between them and the lower castes as small as possible. Still, technologies were sometimes imported from abroad, allowing Yeuzuishan to reach a technological stage close to 40s Japan.

Lastly there were multiple catastrophes shaking the nation, for which they really weren't all that responsible. There was the Youkai of Darkhit, an immensely powerful magic user specialising in psychic magic who went crazy with the effects of her power and had to be put down. There was the Imperial Chancellor who was actually a disguised foreign agent, intent on destabilizing the empire. There was the economical decline as the modern Yeuzuishan wares weren't needed on the world market and only their backwards or simple wares could be sold in larger quantities. In short, the nation was deeply shaken, rotten and in decline when the so called "Quick War" started.

The "Quick War" was preceeded by the beginning of the "Chancellor's War", when the Imperial Chancellor launched a coup d'etat against the Imperial Family. Using this opportunity the Reichsmilitärstaat of Nachfolgia invaded the Empire of Yeuzuishan, ruining ambitions of the Remnants of Exilvania within the Region. For the Chancellor was in fact their agent and the coup had been intended to divide the nation. Through the sudden invasion of the Nachfolgians, the Yeuzuishans were united against a common foe once more and the Chancellor lost his support and was defeated, ending the coup and civil war prematurely. With Nachfolgian forces advancing quickly and overwhelming local Yeuzuishan troops, the Exilvanians were forced into action, backstabbing the Empire of Yeuzuishan and advancing from the other side. The armies met at the capital of Darkhit, where an uneasy peace was kept.

The Oberste Führerin of the Reichsmilitärstaat of Nachfolgia, Angelika von Sturmgeistberg, as well as the Regent and ZZ Reichskommandant of the Remnants of Exilvania met within Darkhit for negotiations concerning the future of Yeuzuishan. Despite multiple attempts of the Yeuzuishan resistance on the lives of the two national leaders, the leaders persevered and eventually signed the treaty to Partition Yeuzuishan between them as well as to cooperate in removing every single trace of resistance from this land. The Yeuzuishan Resistance on the other hand lost the twin princesses, them being publicly executed on live TV, thus ending the Royal Bloodline, as well as several of their strongest combat forces, battle hardened Imperial Guard or Ace Witches and their capital, which was levelled nearly completely during an uprising.

Now the occupied lands of Yeuzuishan are kept under the iron heels of their invaders. The local population has to endure extreme horrors and acts of oppression committed by their new Overlords and is quite literally bled dry of any useful resources it has all the while the invaders strengthen their grip with the construction of new military installations and the like.


Port City Shan Jiniang
Day 1, 03:00


Shan Jiniang had once been the second greatest city within the Yeuzuishan Empire after Darkhit. A sprawling commercial city at the coast of Yeuzuishan, it had long funneled much of the Empire's trade and wealth through itself, which even during the Empire's decline, helped it to great wealth. Many people from all across Yeuzuishan moved here in hopes of a better life, a secure and well paid job and industry was booming in while it fell into decline in much of the rest of the Empire. New inventions from the rest of the world, new ideas and ideologies, also entered Yeuzuishan through here and while many remained steadfast, traditional monarchists and believers of the caste system, other ideologies like communism, fascism or democracy creeped in. Still, it was a city alight at all times and with its streets bustling and no quiet ever to be found within it from all the life that coursed through its veins.

Now that was in the past.

Shan Jiniang had become a dark and desolate place. Few lights were still alight in the city streets. And apart from the sound of vehicles and the howling of wolves, nothing broke the silence. The streets were empty, save for rats scouring the trash heaps lying on the open streets. A series of lights illuminated the front of the town citadel, the massive structure having been adorned with a massive dark blue banner sporting the dreaded yellow exilvanian sword. And dangling in front of it, held by steel ropes, were about two dozen corpses, citizen hung by the Exilvanian occupiers to signal to the population what fate awaited them if they were to rise up.

Up in that palace the Exilvanians had established the centre of their administration for the entire occupied territory. This meant that the Governator had his bureau here, as had the military administration and of course the ZZ. And it was within one of these bureas, its walls adorned with the red flags bearing the white ZZ logo, that ZZ Sektionsleiter Klersk Vormyn stood, looking out over the nightly harbour town from the window of his office. The sight was, despite the darkness, impressive. He could see all the way down to the harbour where lights still shone, illuminating activity on the docks and piers. An exilvanian freighter had arrived just recently and docked at one of the newly constructed piers. Klersk smiled, knowing that they had practically torn down much of the original port and added their own, concrete piers and docks to it to facilitate a more efficient exchange of wares.

Now a railway network had been built straight through the city and onto the piers themselves, rails reaching all the way to the water so trains could drive there and get unloaded or loaded with freight containers. One such train was currently standing on one of the piers right next to the docked ship, having tons of red containers loaded. Of course Klersk couldn't actually see that from his position...but he knew it anyway. As ZZ Sektionsleiter he had a way of knowing such things. Such as having the port activity register open on his desk behind him, the page for today's planned activities open. A smirk spread across his lips as he imagined the loading. How the massive mining spider they had deployed in the port would get into position over the freighter and the train and then load one container after another under the watchful eyes of exilvanian guards. How they would smile and enjoy the beating against the containers as the cargo would get afraid by suddenly being lifted from the train carts. And then it would be shipped off to Exilvania.

A knock on his door ripped Klersk right out of his imagination. He snorted in annoyance before sitting down behind his desk, doing his best to look very busy and annoyed about the intrusion while saying:

"Enter."

In came one of his aides, secretary Selene Gorz, her usual slightly bored expression on the face. She had a few pages in her hand, no doubt things she intended to hand him but for now he was still a bit miffed about getting ripped out of such a pleasant imagination and didn't intend to get back to the usual office work that quickly. From the look of it, Selene wasn't too keen on that either as she raised her arm in greeting, lacking the usual energy and motivation she put into that greeting. Suppose having stayed up the past 72 hours to help in setting up administrative structures had taken their toll.

"What is it Fräulein Gorz?"

She half nodded before suppressing a yawn, dropping the papers on his desk.

"A patrol caught some people outside the city just about half an hour ago. The beasts tore two apart, our men killed another two and tortured one beyond use."

Boring, thought Klersk. It was nothing new that their patrols massacred locals on a nearly hourly basis. While yes, he got the reports of all of these actions everyday, he also never gave them much more attention than quickly skimming them and then checking them off. Of course this decreased the available labour ressources but it improved troop morale if the boys and girls had some fun, not to mention that it helped in keeping the damn Yeuzuishans down. Still, that she brought him this one before the sun had risen meant that something was off about it and so he asked:

"So far so good, our brave fighters doing what they do best. Anything else?"

Selene just shrugged, stating:

"Well, they were outside the city for starters, clearly attempting to hide from us. From what I could gleam in the report, they also had some equipment with them. Camouflage nets, flashlights, maps of the city and its surroundings as well as a rather detailed sketch of our harbour. Oh, and a clock with an alarm set for..."

, she checked her wristwatch.

"...approximately now. If you are asking me, they were waiting for something to happen."

Klersk scratched his chin, not much good coming of it because he wore gloves and a mask. Still, he did it mainly because he was lost in thought and performing some minor tasks with his hands helped him concentrate. A set time, maps of the harbour, camouflage nets? Well, the answer was fairly obvious. These people belonged to some form of organised resistance and were ready and willing to attack the current freighter, disrupting the exilvanian war industry and liberating the cargo. But how did the camouflage nets fit into this? These were used mostly to hide objects or people from view...and were woefully useless in the city. He felt like he was missing something. Still, orders had to be given just in case.

"Mobilize ZZ Festungsgarnison 1001. They are to inconspicuously triple the guards in and around the harbour. The palace too just in case. Apart from that, I want some patrols. Both in the city in the case there are any delusions of a concerted rebellion and insurgent attack, as well as outside the city, especcially where they found those damn insurgents. I have a feeling that we will find more there if we just look hard enough."

Somewhere in the seas nearby the Exilvanian-occupied Yeuzuishan

It was night-time. Popping out of the magical portal underwater is a lone submarine of sleek designs has emerged from the waters, undetected from the eyes and radars of the Exilvanians and Nachfolgians alike. This is no ordinary submarine; this is a naval vessel of revolutionary design. Apparently, this submarine is Minrozian and was under joint-jurisdiction of Special Operations Command and the espionage directorate of the Guoanbu. Their mission is to explore Yuezuishan undercover and assess the region for future operations. It all began when the Imperial Court have founded out the Exilvanians’ seemingly close relations with Nachfolgia – anexpansionist power which made no secret with their hate on the Middle Kingdom. Concerned that this quasi-vampiric nation is an ally of the expansionist Reich, Exilvania is considered to be Minroz’s list of ‘watchlist’ as prospective enemy in the incoming conflicts.

In regards to Yeuzuishan, it is an East Asian nation which shared a lot in common with Minroz in terms of culture, both multi-species and ancient countries. The difference is Yeuzuishan is technologically-backwards and isolationist state which is under foreign occupation while Minroz is a technological-advanced superpower in its homeworld. From the point of view of the Minrozians, Yeuzuishan was unlucky to be invaded by aggressive empires and widely-regarded with sympathetic pity by the citizens of the Middle Kingdom. On other hand, Minroz felt compelled to investigate Yeuzuishan to confirm the situation before deciding on the next course of action, whether it’s worth an intervention.

The Minrozians have finally taken their first steps into infiltrating the Exilvanian-occupied Yeuzuishan. Leading them is Captain Hong Xiao-er, an ace Guoanbu agent with the skills of the superninja and master of the magical arts of shadowmancy. She’s in relationship with the Director of the Guoanbu and despite the risks of the mission, she volunteered to lead if only to get away from most paperwork in the Ministry offices. Xiao-er is a field agent, through and through, she cannot imagine herself doing deskjob for her whole life.

“Penny for your thoughts, my dear~.” Said captain Nian Taomao, the feline beastman and an individual of high intellect, he was Xiao-er’s old teammate and very skilled fighter as a ‘first-class swordsman’. He’s also a quintessential gentleman and a great chef. Taomao also going to help his old friend lead the team and he’ll be posing as a gentleman smuggler.

“Not really, Captain Nian. Just musings to myself.” Xiao-er chuckled a bit. She rarely does laugh for most part, many people considered her stoic and dutiful individual. In presence of her lover, friends and family, she’s quite a normal woman as she can be.

“It is normal, Xiao-er. Life is short to be worry about, life happens wherever you are, whether you make it or not.” Taomao spoke like a wise elder.

“Funny, you can say that, wise old man.” A woman in casual clothes quipped as she appeared out of the submarine hatch, she’s lieutenant Mao Meili of the Special Tasks Group - the Minrozian SAS. She is going to help lead the combat operations in the espionage operations in Yeuzuishan.

“Haha, I’m not even on the level of a sage. But I’ll take that as a compliment.” The gentleman feline chuckled.

“If anything, we’re lucky to have you, sir.” sergeant-major Vitya Gurevich, the laid-back sharpshooter and member of Guoanbu Special forces unit, quipped. “You’re one of living legends~.”

With that, said more people exited the submarine hatch one-by-one with their gears.

“I can say the same, brother.” Sergeant Gilbert Semyonov, the team’s sniper of Ruuzian ancestry and a cheerful guy, quip.

“The more we have more capable people, the better, sir, ma’ams.” Sergeant Shabbir ‘Shah’ Zong, the man of Eurasian mix, he is the jack-of-all-trades soldier and the team’s pointman, have said. Both Gilbert and Shah are members of STG, along with Mao Meili. Lieutenant Mao happens to be superior officer of both Shah and Gilbert. The three STG soldiers were on loan to the Guoanbu for this infiltration mission. It is a typical fashion of the Guoanbu to organise agents, recruited from Special Forces branches of the Minrozian military.

“I have to agree with Sergeant Zong,” Captain Shang Beizhen, he is the excellent investigator for the Guoanbu, whether domestic and foreign. He’s a member of the branch family of the powerful Shang clan, one of the most powerful noble families in Minroz. He has magical spells to summon magical dogs that can be used for reconnaissance and combat. “This whole team set-up is full of capable individuals with their own talents and strengths. I have to say we make a perfect team.”

“I do not disagree, my friend.” The person appeared next to Beizhen as he put on his hat. Lieutenant Shen Fu, a goofy and quiet man in the group who liked to dressed in 20s style. Despite his looks, he is a capable spy.

The three girls grouped together as trio are Cheung Mingmin, Wang Anna, Mui Mahua, known as Paper Sisters, they possessed powers of telekinetic control over paper and objects that contain paper.

“Why do I have to take this?” The pinkette girl complained, carrying a big backpack. “Why don’t Mahua carry this instead?”

“Erm, little sister, she already did. Ahaha~.” Mingmin said like a loving mother as she pointed her finger at the tall Mahua, who is carrying two duffel bags in both hands.

“It’ll fit you better, little one.” Gilbert quipped, much to the diminutive pinkette’s chagrin.

“Oi!” Anna pouted.

“Enough teasing her, we got work to do, brother.” Vitya quipped.

“I hear that~.”

What’s more stranger to the team is a strange, stoic girl with mysterious past. Adding to their confusion, she called herself Sister Mei and is really proficient with military weapons. As for her presence, it’s all of this is orders from above in Zhongyang but only Xiao-er and Taomao knew the truth and they’re not divulging the information to the rest of the team just yet. There’s more to this girl than she lets on. Now, everyone in the team has gathered.

Xiao-er, as leader of the team with Taomao as her adjutant, have stepped up.

“Alright, people. Listen up, you’ve already seen the briefings about Yeuzuishan and the Exilvanians. We’re about to enter what’s constitutes to be highly-secured foreign occupation and we’re dealing with people who have no qualms on massacring innocents to get what they want and drained everything in order to sate their greed. Exilvanians are nothing more than devious barbarians but do not underestimate them. Don’t try to be hero and be careful. Should they capture you and if we cannot rescue you, you all know what to do in the event of being capture with no hope of rescue and escape. Do all of you understand?”

“Yes ma’am!”

“Gear up, we’re leaving now.”

With that, they’re prepared with their gear. On the outside, this motley group may not look like your typical spies; they’re making up in their skills as agents complimenting each other. They’re meant to work as a team in groups. From military personnel to field agents to civilian contractors, they’re seemed to be the perfect team on paper. They’re going to pose are criminal smugglers who’ve arrived from Nachfolgian-occupied Yeuzuishan. The leaders of the spy group were also informed that there’ll additional two people going to join them eventually and they’ll be rendezvous in the city. All in all, the Minrozians are ready.

From his pockets was a spherical device the size of a tennis ball, Taomao clicked the buttons with his fingers and then tossed the device into the water. A minute later, popped up from the waters is a freighter boat of Nachfolgian designs and completed with the Nachfolgian flag itself. They’re perfect for going undercover. These devices were the product of science division of the Guoanbu, taking designs of any known vehicles in the hyperverse and pops up into full, genuine size in an instant with one click of the button.

Eventually, they’ve disembarked from the submarine and got onto the boat with the Nachfolgian flag. With that, their undercover boat began heading towards Yuezuishan port city of Shan Jiniang.

Port City Shan Jiniang
Day 1, 03:15


"Sektionsleiter, something has suddenly appeared on our radars!"

, an Exilvanian ZZ trooper shouted as ZZ Sektionsleiter Klersk Vormyn was passing by. Vormyn had made his way to the radar station they had constructed here in Shan Jiniang, mainly because he felt that the risk would be too great if the entire command of the occupied territory was gathered in one place while there was a very real danger of a terrorist attack. Besides, if there was intelligence work to be done, then from here. The sprawling concrete complex housed the main exilvanian radar station for the region as well as the main communications array. It was an equally strategically important location next to the administration Headquarters.

Now, what the ZZ trooper had shouted usually wasn't of any major concern to him. If something appeared on the radar then it was usually still very far out. But that small word "suddenly" gave it a quite different meaning. Few things just appeared suddenly and so he strode over to the man in question with long steps, coming to a halt behind him and staring down at the radar screen, which constantly refreshed to show the newest positions of ships and aircraft in the area. The ZZ man quickly pointed at several of the green dots before finally putting his finger onto a small red dot that was strangely close to the center of the radar, saying:

"As you can see, these are our patrol vessels in the area, following their usual patrol routes. No deviations there. No reports of unusual activity or sightings either. Which makes this all the more concerning. This vessel just popped up out of nowhere. No prior sightings by our patrol vessels and no prior appearances on our radar...either of which should've happened if it was to have reached the spot it is at now."

Vormyn quietly agreed with the man. This indeed shouldn't happen. Problem was that it had happened so he had to think hard how this could've been done? Avoiding the patrol vessels was possible, given the right equipment or knowledge of the patrol patterns. They didn't have too many vessels out there on the sea afterall. But hiding from the radar definitely meant that some high tech was involved. And high tech immediately made Vormyn's mind snap towards the Solar Empire, the most technologically advanced nation nearby and an ancestral enemy of his people, of his nation. And in this case, he had to be ready for anything and so he immediately gave new orders to one of the other troopers working in the room:

"Let vessel V-0094 change course to intercept. They are to establish visual contact ASAP and then hail the unknown vessel per Radio, asking for identification and their purpose here. Also alert MaRak Battery 102, I want them to be able to fire at the vessel at a moment's notice."

"Of course Sektionsleiter!"

, the trooper saluted before picking up a radio, getting the right frequency and encryption set before starting to contact the Units Vormyn wanted informed.





Gulf of Jiniang
Day 1, 3:40


A searchlight suddenly turned on not too far from the "Nachfolgian Freighter", its glow starting to cut across the waves like a knife through thin air. The blinding light cut through the darkness illuminating anything where it shone completely but when it left, darkness returned, darker than ever before due to the contrast. It was the patrol vessel V-0094 that had finally caught up with the freighter that had managed to get past it. Of course, since the freighter did get past it, it had managed to make quite a bit of distance, closing in on Shan Jiniang till there were only 5 miles left between them and they could already see the few lights in the city in the distance. But alas, the Xers had caught up nonetheless.

The Patrol Boat was relatively small. It was a high seas worthy boat, equipped with several automatic cannons and some heavy machines and most importantly, torpedoes. A relatively small exilvanian crew manned it...but they didn't need to be many. For now, they just scanned the freighter's shape with their searchlight.

On the small bridge of V-0094, Kapitänleutnant Karl Lirenner squinted his eyes under his mask, trying to make out what they were having in front of them. Alas, the fact that they had jus one searchlight made things slightly more difficult and it was quite the big ship. Though what he could say for sure was that this was not a warship, nor did it appear to be armed. But the nationality...he wasn't sure where it was from. Definitely not a Solar ship though which was something he could definitely already report.

"Open radio communications with R101."

, he ordered one of his sailors, the radioman, who dutifully set the radio to the correct frequency, turned on the encryption system and contacted the radiostation R101.

"This is V-0094. We have made visual contact with the vessel. Due to equipment limits as well as poor visibility, we are incapable of fully identifying the vessel before us. However, we assume that it is an unarmed freighter of a nation seemingly similarly advanced as most nations around here."

"This is R101-A11, received. Proceed to hail the unknown ship. Dissuade it from its course by all means short of lethal force. We can't afford an incident."

"Understood. Executing now."

The radioman then started switching frequencies and turned off the encryption, sending unencrypted messages on every channel.

"Unidentified vessel, this is V-0094. Identify yourself and state your purpose in these waters. Fail to comply and you will be boarded."
"Unidentified vessel, this is V-0094. Identify yourself and state your purpose in these waters. Fail to comply and you will be boarded."
"Unidentified vessel, this is V-0094. Identify yourself and state your purpose in these waters. Fail to comply and you will be boarded."
"Unidentified vessel, this is V-0094. Identify yourself and state your purpose in these waters. Fail to comply and you will be boarded."
"Unidentified vessel, this is V-0094. Identify yourself and state your purpose in these waters. Fail to comply and you will be boarded."

Meanwhile Lirenner had his men get ready. He had an eight man squad of sailors ready themselves to board while another two manned a pair of twin 15mm machineguns to give fire support during a potential boarding maneuver. The boarding party packed everthing required to get on board. Grappling hooks, steel cables, batons and stunners, submachineguns with rubber bullets etc. The rest of the crew manned all the other stations as at the highest possible efficiency ratio aka the least amount of people necessary to perform all duties.

They were ready to do whatever was necessary should the freighter not comply.

Gulf of Jiniang

The Exilvanians seems to be in time to catch the Minrozians onboard in the act. However, what will they find would disappoint them. What have happened more than half an hour earlier, the Minrozians have already left the ship.

Besides, the Minrozians have no intention to comply with the Exilvanians anyway, at least doing so blatantly without giving away their true identities as agents of the Middle Kingdom. Thus making their infiltration of the city more difficult, now the Minrozian agents have to proceed to the next phase of infiltration, escape by zodiac boats in a discreet fashion. They’ve already anticipated an Exilvanian boat to come investigate. Two of them uses their own hand-held radar devices alerted the Qing agents to the incoming Exilvanian boat.

Centring on the senior agents, Lieutenant Mao and Zong, holing up inside the bridge, they’re discussing their next course of action to the recent developments. And they’re quite prepared.

“Well, it seems we have some visitors’ incoming.” Beizhen quipped; seemingly have no regards for how grave the situation is.

“The Exilvanians are coming. Should we respond?” Shah stated in the deadpan manner.

“No need, we’ll be gone by the time they started boarding.” Taomao replied.

“If we do hail, they’ll board and try taking us prisoners and then killing us of course.” Meili quipped. “Anything else need to be left said?”

“Luckily for us, we anticipated this to happen. Their radar must’ve detected us.” Xiao-er said.

“Remind me again, what happens if the Exilvanians discovered the freighter is not Nachfolgian?” Beizhen questioned.

“Fear not, we have some ‘gifts’ for them, down in the engine room~. Shah got most of it sorted out.” Meili reassured with tinge of excitement in her tone.

“Alright, move on to next phase. Tell everyone to get on the zodiacs.” Xiao-er ordered.

“Yes ma’am.” Shen Fu gave out his confident smile before he and the rest leaves the bridge to get on the zodiacs.

“Well then, let’s go to the boats on the double.” Taomao instructed, following suit.

“Yes sir.” Meili and Beizhen acknowledged.

Prompted by action and carrying their gear, the agents got on the zodiac boats one-by-one before their ‘Nachfolgian freighter’ gets detected by the Exilvanian high-speed torpedo boat. Thus, they’ve escaped the ship without the Exilvanians noticing. The Minrozians simply left the freighter as a ‘ghost ship’ with Nachfolgian markings. If the Xers searched thoroughly inside the ship, they’re in for a big surprise.


Somewhere in Yuezuishan borders between Nachfolgia and Exilvania

Somewhere in a barren area where no patrols from both sides of the wall who didn’t care to bother or too desolate to warrant attention, thus the area has been left out of patrol perimeters. Save for two individuals have explored the land without the need for food and water. Apparently Minroz have sent some special agents for this particular assignment and they happened to be not organic beings.

Hopping from the pile of rocks to another like ninjas are Agent Ershi-er and Shijiu. They’ve been dropped onto the cliff areas by a Stealth VTOL transport from a submarine half an hour ago. This VTOL utilizes a tech which is a form of active camouflage providing the transport to be near concealment from radars and other electromagnetic forms of detection including the naked human eye.

Despite their appearances as humans, the duo are actually android assassins and spy agents of the Middle Kingdom. Their names are actually twenty-two and nineteen in English. And they’re also the robot couple with their minds sentient enough to have emotions like living beings. In other words, the two are lovers. The two are a proof that robots need love between one and another. The prime examples of how technologically-advanced the civilization called Minroz is.

“We’re not far off, Shijiu. We’re going to meet up with the second team in the city. They’ll let us know by tomorrow at mid-day. Remember, we cannot afford to be spotted by Exilvanians.” Ershi-er says before peeking from the rock. “Coast is clear, Shijiu. Let’s go.”

“Yes ma’am.” Shijiu nodded in affirmation.

The two assassin androids then continued to head off towards port city Shan Jiniang as silent as the night itself. If they see any Exilvanian patrols, they’ll hide until coast is clear.

Day 1, 3:45


"Kapitänleutnant, they appear to not be responding to our hails. Shall we proceed with boarding?"

Lirenner squeezed his gasmask in thought while scanning the freighter with his eyes. He didn't like this, he didn't like this at all. First it had circumvented radar and patrols, now it was not responding to their hails. Was this a ghost ship perhaps? A cursed vessel traversing the seas? Cold fingers gripped Lirenner's heart as he thought of that and he was tempted to just leave the ship and go. But then the searchlight fell upon some markings on the ship and he cursed instead:

"What in the name of all four goddesses are they doing here?!?"

The markings were without a doubt Nachfolgian, identifying the ship as a Nachfolgian freighter. They couldn't just blow it out of the water then since this would be a diplomatic incident that the ZZ Sektionsleiter did not want to be responsible for. Lirenner had heard that Vormyn had already run into quite a bit of trouble with the Nachfolgians and running into it again was something he most likely didn't want to do. He immediately had his Radio Operator contact R101:

"This is V0094 calling R101. V0094 calling R101. Ship has been identified as a Nachfolgian vessel. Registration Number 104T-BRN. Ship is not responding to our hails. Clearance to proceed with boarding?"

The answer came quickly, a simple clarification being necessary.

"This is R101. Confirmed identification as Nachfolgian vessel please."

"This is V0094, yes, confirmed identity beyond a doubt. Nachfolgian vessel in our Waters."

It took a while before the next answer came, but it came with the all important clearance to continue:

"This is R101. SLY-V has given clearance to proceed with Boarding the vessel."

That was all Lirenner needed. If These Nachfolgians decided to invade their territorial Waters and use their ports, despite the treaty specifying otherwise, then they had thought wrong. He'd have them educated about the error of their ways and thrown out of exilvanian waters real quick. Without wasting another second, Kapitänleutnant Karl Lirenner ordered the Boarding of the Nachfolgian freighter. His troopers complied, Shooting several grappling hooks over the freighter's railings before using the steel cables to make their way up there. Once over the rails, they quickly spread out 2 teams of 3, with the remaining two staying at the grappling hooks.

The teams weren't armed with lethal weapons, only stun weaponry or blunt melee weapon. So fully prepared to avoid an international incident by killing somebody. They made their way slowly into the ship, one of the three man teams heading towards the bridge where they would look for clues about the ship's systems, navigation and mission while the other team descended down into the belly of the vessel, looking for any crew or signs of a crew.

Day 1, 03:50


"A Nachfolgian freighter they said...you over there, get me a line to the Administration Center, I need to talk with my secretary."

,Vormyn stated, while walking up and down in the radar control room. Something was off about this. He didn't think the Nachfolgians to be so brazen as to clearly ignore the treaty they had crafted not too long ago. Though he couldn't rule out that it was perhaps the doing of their Oberste Führerin. The Von Sturmgeistberg clearly never forgave him for what he did during the Battle of Darkhit. He could imagine that she would, if she found out that he was still alife, do anything within her power to make his life difficult.

An Exilvanian grunt came up to him, a telephone in his hand. Vormyn grabbed it without another look and asked:

"Fräulein Gorz?"

A yawn greeted him from the other end of the line, followed by a:

"The one and only. Anything you require Sektionsleiter?"

He overlooked her attitude and continued, speaking very quickly:

"Listen to me here Fräulein Gorz and listen well. I want you to get in touch first with the Nachfolgian authorities, ask them if they would be willing to give us some Information about a ship in their registry going by the number 104T-BRN. After that, you will get in touch with ZZ Intelligence over at home. Ask them to mobilise their contacts within Nachfolgia to see if they can't gleam some info on that ship or wether or not there are any operations planned in Exilvanian Yeuzuishan."

"That will be everything?"

"That will be everything Fräulein Gorz. Now make haste, time is short!"

Day 1, 03:55


As the zodiacs sped towards the coast, they made sure to stay away from the city, where the docks would be guarded beyond the shadow of a doubt, a notion reinforced by the multiple searchlights stroking across the water like long, thin fingers. The Exilvanians were expecting something to come and Interrupt their operations ever since the ship had been sighted. Going straight to the city, without additional cloaking technology or the like would've been suicide and the commandos were too intelligent to commit such a thing. And so they were heading for the next best beach outside the city, that would provide them with a safe landing point for the zodiacs.

They found such a beach without any great difficult. A small beach, hidden between some cliffs which almost formed a roof on top of it. In the back, a path seemed to lead deeper and further upwards into the cliffs. A picture perfect landing point.

Untill the light shining down the path was suddenly obstructed and the commandos could see movement on the path. Someone was running down that path, the figure barely visible in the darkness and only streaks of moonlight occasionally illuminating it. And then there was another shadow going after it, quickly.

The figure made it onto the beach before the other shadow caught up with it, jumping straight onto it, growling like some feral beast. A pair of glowing red, animalistic eyes shone through the darkness as the creature held the other figure down. Then the shadows seemed to meld for a Moment and next the Minrozians heard a pained cry, someone being in great pain.

Following immediately after they heard a muffled voice calling through the darkness:

"Fido! Fido where are you?"

"Fido you crazy good boy, leave that catch alone, we need atleast one alife!"

"I guess some fun can be had while still keeping them alife though, hahahaha!"

More shadows were coming down the path, though each of them had two big, glowing, green circles where their eyes were. Exilvanians no doubt. Not the least because they were speaking Exilvanian. Now the question for the commandos was...take the patrol, save whoever they caught and risk being noticed? Or just try and find another beach? Then their surprise went off behind them...




Near the Port City Shan Jiniang
Day 1, 03:55


The two androids found the cliffs empty...though the rocky terrain was difficult to traverse, requiring them to use all their ninja skills to continue on their way. No wonder the Exilvanians didn't patrol here. Under normal circumstances it was a waste of time. But These weren't normal circumstances. Afterall, ninja androids were everything but normal, weren't they? Alas, the Exilvanians did not know that they were there so they still didn't patrol there.

Now, from their elevated position atop the cliffs, the androids could easily see Shan Jiniang nearby. The city looked the way it did before. Apparently the Exilvanians hadn't sounded any major alarms over the appearance of the freighter, nor did they know about their landing. The only thing the androids noticed were a few patrols, patrolling along the cliffs with large, wolf like creatures. They made sure not to get too close to difficult terrain so if the androids stuck to the cliffs, they'd not have to deal with the patrols at all. Still, the city was quite a bit away and if they wanted to get into the city itself, they'd have to come up with a plan how to cross the city walls.

Then they heard two things in quick succession. A scream of pain, erupting from somewhere between the cliffs, its volume increased by the rock formations. Immediately followed by growls. Several of the Exilvanian patrols had halted at the sound of the scream but when they heard the growling, they continued at their normal pace. No doubt thinking that everything was being handled. Now, the androids couldn't tell...who had screamed? One of their team members? Someone unaffiliated? Then the surprise their comrades left in the freighter went off behind them...

It is true; the ship is abandoned when the Exilvanians board the ship. Unsurprisingly, they searched the whole ship as any sensible security forces would do when they addressed the unknown ship. As for the surprise waiting for them, it is inside the cargo haul. If some Exilvanians nearby the room is there by chance, they can hear loud beeps within their earshot. Hidden behind the crate is a makeshift explosive device made by Shah, completed with the timer on top of it like a shining star on the Christmas tree.

Beep…beep…beep…beep

The timer has the dramatic countdown starting with three, two, one and…zero. Upon hitting zero, the timer screen turns on display say ‘Bye, bye’ in English. Before the Exilvanian boarders finally realized, the amount of explosives is enough to sink both ships and the bomb exploded into fiery death and destruction. The Minrozians planned to destroy evidence of their ship’s makings before the Xers could figure out their true identity.

BOOM!


Near the Port City Shan Jiniang

From the distance on the beach, the main team have arrived on the coast and deployed themselves on ground. The senior members of the team took positions while younger members helped unload the gear from the Zodiac boats.

“Whew, I almost feel sorry about them.” Gilbert remarked, doesn’t seemed to sound upset by what’s going to be Exilvanian deaths on-board the freighter.

“Don’t be. The briefings did say they’re cold-blooded monsters, no different from Nachfolgians.” Beizhen said.

Suddenly, Xiao-er lifts her fist up, gesturing she heard something. Noticing her gesture, the commandos became quiet and brandish their respective weapons. All of sudden, they saw an illuminating light shining down the path and the Minrozians can see movement on the path. Instinctively, they quickly spread out and hide behind cover. They then trained their weapons on whoever was coming down the path, expecting Exilvanian patrols. And they can hear the Exilvanian language being spoken from a distance. But much to their surprise, they saw a figure being chased by enemy patrol and their dog. Witnessing the injustice they’ve witnesses, the senior members are more patient than the youngsters, save for Sister Mei who is quiet as a rock.

“We should help.” Anna hissed, she brought out her papers, ready to manipulate it into a weapon with her powers.

“Wait, we can’t afford to be spotted. This isn’t like back home.” Mingmin whispered to her sworn sister, pressing Anna’s hand down. Her tone of urgency is enough to silence the pinkette.

“I have them in my sights. What’s your call?” Vitya radioed Xiao-er and Taomao, he and Gilbert, armed with their silenced sub-machine guns. All the shooters in the team does the same. Sister Mei, Shah and Meili with their silenced T91, others have their own weapons befitted of their specialties, the said commandos are highly-trained soldiers qualified among the deadliest of Minrozian special-forces. It’s unlikely they’ll miss the target. However, killing the Exilvanians with bullets and leave them as corpses where they’re at would definitely leave some suspicion with Exilvanian investigators. The Minrozians don’t want to get their identities found out just yet. Their Guoanbu leading officers were just being perfectionist.

“Negative, that’ll leave evidence of our makings. I have a better idea. Cover me~.” Taomao replied on radio, pressing the comm-earpieace with one hand. As soon as he said it, the feline beastman crept slowly towards the Exilvanians like a prowling predator. He has both of his hands ready on his swords.

As if the timing is right, the Minrozians heard their ‘Nachfolgian’ freighter exploded into one big spiral of flames, sinking both the ship and the Exilvanian boarders.

BOOOM!

They didn’t need to watch what remains of the ship sunk into the ocean. Now, the explosions have probably gotten attention of everyone on Shan Jiniang. And useful distraction for Exilvanian patrol in Minrozians’ favour.

Ershi-er and Shijiu


Upon seeing Exilvanian patrols and some wolf-like beasts, the android assassins hide behind the rocks. They’re careful enough not to get spotted or heard by the hostile patrols. This is the last thing the Minrozian androids want to. But this doesn’t mean they’ll not take drastic action until they needed to as their hands slowly gripped their own katana-like swords, made of hyper-alloy. It won’t be long until the sudden cries of explosions coming from the seas – the explosion of false Nachfolgian freighter.

BOOM!

If the Exilvanians were startled and distracted by the noises of explosions, the androids will took this chance to change their hiding spot as they leapt into another cover, hidden behind rows of rocks. It would impossible for normal humans to perform but Ershi-er and Shijiu are combat androids, designed for stealth missions considered to be suicidal for organics.

However, the androids are wondering on who had screamed earlier.

Day 1, 04:00


The fiery explosion out at sea brightly illuminated the waters out there, fire and wreckage falling from the skies where a swirling storm of flames raged. The soundwave washed across the waves, quickly reaching the beach and making every Exilvanian's head snap around in the direction of the water. Even their beast let go off their victim, blood dropping from ist fangs as it reared ist snout in the direction of the sea.

"Well...shit."

, one of the Exilvanians muttered under his gasmask.

"Think that was one of our boats?"

, another one asked, still staring at the spectacle out at sea.

"Could ask...but I think we'll know soon enough. There'll probably be general notifications coming via the comms soon."

, the third Exilvanian said. He then turned around with a sigh, looking back at their beast and the captive underneath it. A soft whimpering was heard across the beach, clear signs of the captive being in great pain. The Exilvanian walked over to the shadow lying on the ground, shooing the beast away before kicking the poor wounded captive and saying:

"Up with you Yeuz! You could run so well before, I expect you to walk even better with us now."

The Yeuzuishan on the ground had yelped in pain when kicked but didn't actually get up, causing the Exilvanian to give a fake sigh before brandishing a long knife, saying:

"My, oh my, why must you Yeuzuishans always be so troublesome? All I want you to do is to stand up and walk a bit with us, nothing more. But I guess you need to be motivated, am I right?"

The knife glinted, light from either the moon or the fire raging on the sea reflecting off its metallic surface.

Day 1, 04:00


The distraction worked out well for the androids, catching practically every patrols attention. But the problem was that all of them now rushed towards the coast to get a better look out onto the sea and at the fires raging there. It was afterall quite the sight. It did make the androids attempt at getting to the next cover only marginally easier. But marginally easier was enough for them as they leapt from their current hiding spot into another, a row of rocks. Below them the cliffs fell steeply down towards the water and they could see the spectacle in the distance. And on the other side and even on top of the rocks were the Exilvanians. They could hear them, heavy boots hitting stone, muffled voices talking, claws scratching.

"Crap, was that the freighter I heard about before? Did they sink it?"

"Nah, unlikely. Wrong kind of explosion for that. This looks more like purposeful detonation. A terrorist act by these Yeuzuishans no doubt."

The Exilvanians were now directly on top of the androids, standing on the stones they were hiding behind. Looking up, the androids could see the Exilvanians standing there above them. But the Exilvanians' gazes were fixed on something in the distance and so they didn't look down. Suddenly the crackling of a radio was heard. Both of the Exilvanians fell silent as a message was relayed through their Radios:

"Attention all patrols! A heinous attack on our uniformed military personnel has taken place. All patrols are to act with extreme caution and scan the coast. Although there are indications that Yeuzuishan Insurgent elements may be involved in this, they do not have the means for such an attack. We expect foreign perpetrators behind this. The detonation was doubtlessly a distraction to enter the country undetected. Look along the coast for foreign nationals. Do not use deadly force unless previously attacked with such. Capture any personnel you can find so we can expose the perpetrators behind this to the international community.

Good hunting!"

The two Exilvanian soldiers standing on the rock above the androids looked at each other for a moment, one of them saying:

"Yeah, a Terrorist act by these Yeuzuishans no doubt."

And then both of them looked down.

What the said Exilvanian who is playing around with his knife. He didn’t lived long to notice when someone has already swinged the swords. As a result, his head and his torso were cut off cleanly like a bamboo stick. Revealing himself is Nian Taomao as a twin-swordsman armed with rapiers.

“I do believed you have enough fun, gentlemen.” He quipped but his tone does not indicate any hints of mercy or compassion. Besides which, he greatly disliked bullies and what he found the Exilvanian display of torturing their prisoner is barbaric.

And of course, the Exilvanian and the beast didn’t understood him for the feline beastman spoke a language similar to the locals but not from Yeuzuishan. While normal swords couldn’t possible make clean cuts, the rapier swords Taomao are holding are no ordinary blades. It is made of hyper-alloy materials which has included titanium in its combination to be created into the strongest and sharpest blade in the world. It is so strong and sharp enough that it’s able to cut any durable objects like rock and steel cleanly.

Before the enemy tries to radio to help, Taomao proceeded to cut down the remaining Exilvanian patrol, both the soldier and his pet beast together. The beastman swordsman sliced his targets with the speed in the blink of an eye. Making short work of his targets, he sheathed his swords.

“Wow, your swordsmanship never ceased to amaze us.” Gilbert quipped.

“Your words have exaggerated, I’m nothing special.” Taomao replied, trying to sound humble.

In the meantime, Xiao-er signalled the paper sisters and Shah to tend the prisoner.

“Is he going to be okay?” Anna asked with worry over the Yeuzuishan.

“He’s still breathing. He’s alive.” Shah replied to the pinkette. “But if we don’t enough medical attention. He will die.”

“Can we save him?” Mingmin asked.

“Affirmative, we have some healing potions in the back. Help me get the victim to safety.” Shah instructed. Nodding, the Paper Sisters proceeded to carry what appears to be Yeuzuishan local who was taken prisoner by the Exilvanians. They then carry the Yeuzuishan behind cover while Shah applied some drops of magical healing potion from the canteen. One or two drops of Minrozian healing potion is enough to heal the physical wounds of the user.



Ershi-er and Shijiu

By the time the Exilvanians looked down, the androids were already gone. The two took advantage of the confusion to avoid Exilvanian patrols. And it’ll start when they’ve heard the crackling radio of the Xers. And they do not need to know Exilvanian to understand what’s going on, they quickly figured it’s a good time to move. Trouble is there’re too many hostiles crowding on the coastal cliffs which heightened the risks of detection. But this doesn’t deter the androids from trying to sneak past them. In the end, Ershi-er and Shijiu continued leaping and sneaking from one cover to another, heading towards the city.

Day 1, 04:02


The Exilvanian never got to contact HQ, Taomao's precise and swift swordsmanship taking care of him and his radio, the latter of which was cracked had sparks flying out of it for a moment after Taomao's rapier cut it apart. The other Exilvanian and the beast didn't fare much better. All three of them were dispatched very quickly, so quickly that Taomao was complimented about his skills. And that sickened the Exilvanians on the ground. For yes, the wounds they had received were fatal for humans...but they were not human. They were Exilvanians, a fact that they'd remind the Minrozians of soon enough.

While one of the two Exilvanians downed later was actually dead, Taomao's cut having sliced half his head off and cut the radio apart, the other simply had a deep gash running across his torso. Taomao's rapier had cut deep, straight through guts, ribs and lungs and created a wound that was fatal and would've killed anyone outright. But the Exilvanian wasn't dead...yet. He knew he'd die soon though. Hence why just lying there and acting as though he was dead was an option but not one that'd yield anything for him or his country. Radio? No, the cracking of it would alert the Minrozians as well and make them finish him quickly. No, all he could do was to potentially try and kill one or two of them.

Suppressing a groan, the Exilvanian slowly, very slowly, gripped his assault rifle a bit harder and pointed it at the shadowy figures of the Minrozian operatives, shown in creepy green detail to him through the night vision lenses of his mask. He attempted to make very little sound while doing so...though some sounds always escaped. The soft sound of cloth rubbing upon each other. The slight clanking sounds as the plastics and metal of his equipment hit each other.

The Minrozians tending to the wounded Yeuzuishan quickly noticed that it was not a he but she. And not even human but rather a demihuman. A young, blonde demihuman girl, breathing lowly while she was bleeding from a deep bite wound in her shoulder. She was obviously in great pain but too weak to articulate her pain in any sounds anymore. She didn't resist or react when the Minrozians carried her away, into relative safety. She didn't resist or react when they set her down again.

She did however react when the Minrozians healed her wound, inhaling sharply as it started closing and her eyelids fluttering open, revealing a pair of golden eyes. The eyes needed a bit of time to focus again but when they did, they immediately gazed onto Sha's face a small, weak smile spreading on it as she murmured in Yeuzuishan:

"Thank the gods she was right. You truly came."

And then she passed out, most likely from exhaustion and blood loss, something the Minrozian potion did not relieve her off.




Near the Port City Shan Jiniang
Day 1, 04:05


The journey Ershi-er and Shijiu undertook was a perlious one. Soldiers were above them, often only centimeters away from them as their fingers took hold of the cliffs' edges right before the Exilvanians' boots. Death climbed with them as the cliffs often didn't provide a safe hold, only the androids inhuman reflexes and strength allowing them to quickly find their footing again if the cliff broke away under them. Such events obviously caused noise and made the Exilvanian patrols investigate them but the androids always managed to hide or were already gone by the time the Xers peeked over the edge.

And so, through a combination of skill and sheer luck, the team of androids made its way ever closer to the city. On their way they'd suddenly hear the sound of an unsilenced assault rifle going off, firing a salvo out into the night. It came from in front of them, not very far at all and slightly below, somewhere around water level.

Should the android team decide to continue in that direction and investigate on the way, they'd find the small beach the other group had landed on. However...they were not the only ones to have heard the shots. From their position further up the cliffs, they could already hear the sounds of Exilvanians moving in, mostly the howling of their beasts as they advanced quickly towards the small way down to the beach. The Exilvanians themselves though stayed suspiciously silent. But both of the androids knew that they were there and most likely moving in as well, given that they had seen how many of them were combing the platea above and the orders they most likely had.

“A-a girl!?” Anna exclaimed, much to her surprise. To the Minrozians who overlooked Shah to get the look at Yeuzuishan prisoner, they’re more or less quite surprised to find out the demihuman prisoner turns out to be a young girl.

“W-what did she said?” Mingmin utters in confusion at the demihuman girl’s words while Mahua didn’t have much words to say in the strange twist of the situation. Understandably, they don’t know any Yeuzuishan language.

“You know, she’s quite cute~. Oof-!” Gilbert remarked, only to get nudged by Meili. By the time he said it, the Yeuzuishan girl was left unconscious due to her wounds. Now, it’s up to Shah to tend to her.

“She’s out cold but alive.” Xiao-er said as she checked the blonde demihuman.

“Help me get her up.” Shah ordered the paper sisters. He then turns to Gilbert. “You too, Semyonov.”

“Aww…” The blonde marksman moaned.

“Oh right. Off we go~.” Mingmin chuckles as she and her sworn-sisters help Shah carry the demihuman girl.

“Urgh, she’s heavy.” Gilbert grunted.

“Hey, that’s not a nice thing to say about woman’s weight!” Anna complained to him.

Back to the senior agents, who’ve gather around for a small discussion on the next course of action.

“It’s our landing. First contact with enemy patrol, what now?” Shen Fu quipped.

“I supposed we better moved on.” Beizhen says.

“One moment.” Xiao-er suddenly raised her hand. In a second, she quickly pulled out her hyper-alloyed knife and jabbed it into the head of the barely-alive Exilvanian. She made in time to kill the Exilvanian before he has a chance to shoot. She was lucky her sharp senses and experiences saved her team in time. “He was still alive, Taomao. Technically, you missed one. He would kill or injured you or anyone else here. The shots alone would’ve brought the enemy attention on us.”

“Ah, my mistake.” the feline beastman admitted, he then bowed in a mock apology. “Well, I was under impressions that the cuts should’ve killed him. It seems these Exilvanians are tough than they looked.”

“I’ll write down about it.” Beizhen said as he jotted down on his notebook.

“Well, less thing to worry about it.” Shen Fu said.

“What do we do now, sir?” Meili asked Taomao.

“Let’s find ourselves a safe place to hide with the girl. The Exilvanians are going to look for their lost patrols and the escaped prisoner. Make haste.” The feline beastman replied with his tone emphasised on the last part as if it’s urgent.

“Yes sir.” Everyone except Beizhen and Xiao-er responded. The Minrozians then moved forward, carrying with their equipment and weapons. The next thing they knew their first day of their mission is going to be a long day.


Ershi-er and Shijiu

While logic in their mechanical brains dictated that the mission takes precedence above all else, but curiosity got better of them. Despite being robots, they think and act like living beings like their organic compatriots.

“They’re heading that way. They must be looking for whoever shooting at them.” Shijiu observed, radios his partner through telepathy.

“This will not concern about our mission.” Ershi-er replied as she does the same. “Our objective is far more important. We can’t afford to waste time on the Exilvanian patrols.”

“What if it’s a local resistance? Perhaps if we saved one, they can show us where the resistance are.”

Ershi-er is silent as if pondering her lover’s words for a moment. Without a word or need to speak, the androids decided to investigate what the Exilvanian patrols are up to. If it helps with their mission in Yeuzuishan, then perhaps it’ll be worth checking out.

Near the Port City Shan Jiniang
Day 1, 04:05


The way off the beach and up onto the cliffs was clear from any enemies so the Minrozians could manage to slip up onto the top without any problems. As they reached the top and thus a decent enough overview of their surroundings up there, they indeed realized that this first day of their mission would be a long one. Their good eyes, magics or advanced optics allowed them to see quite well, especcially as dawn set in and the sun slowly started rising, her first rays feeling over the countryside. It looked bleak to be completely honest.

The cliffs were obviously rather rocky and barren. The only places to hide were behind rocks or cracks in the cliffs. A few deep running cracks had been formed by small streams of water, having worn out the stone over millennia. But none of them were exactly the best spots to stay. Why? Because of Exilvanian patrols of course. They were difficult to spot, their dark blue uniforms blending in well with the stones and the blue-ish darkness of the receeding night. What stuck out about them were the eyes of their masks. The green glow was always well visible. Other ways of spotting them were of...limited success. While heat signatures worked in a limited way, the Minrozians still had to note that the Exilvanians' heat signatures were pretty low, making spotting them difficult. Magical means of finding them were slightly more successful, finding certain traces of dark magic wherever an Exilvanian walked. They were only very slight, the magic involved most likely having been used untold times ago...but it must've been strong once.

The patrol routes seemed to be made up sporadically at first...though if the Minrozians actually took the time to observe the Exilvanians for a while, they would notice that there was a system to it. A system that changed every time but had its clear marks as the patrols never got into each other's way. The Exilvanians doubtlessly quickly communicated new patrol plans with each other as well as the results of their patrols, testament to how disciplined and well organised they were.

However, there was also the problem of the patrol they had killed. While they had done so quietly and without raising any attention immediately, the Exilvanian patrols noticed soon that they were missing a thread in their net. Some sporadic gunfire had, not long after they had regrouped at the beach, withdrawn some of the Exilvanians but the net was still strong...and it was starting to tighten around their position as the Exilvanians slowly retraced their missing patrol's steps and limited the area where they could've gone.

A normal team of spec ops would most likely be incapable of escaping this net. There was too little cover to move to and from and to hide from the patrols. They could see a forest further behind the cliffs...but for that they'd have to traverse atleast a kilometer of rocks. Not to mention that they had an unconscious person with them, weighing them down. A plan had to be made to either get past the patrols or divert them elsewhere.




Near the Port City Shan Jiniang
Day 1, 04:30


Ershi-er and Shijiu's curiosity was well grounded but by the time they reached the spot the shots had come from, they had long ceased. An eerie silence hung over the area again as they made their way along the cliffs, soon reaching a small ledge on the cliffs, approximately 3 or 4 meters wide and 10 meters long. A small pathway lead up onto the top of the cliff again but that was most likely of little concern to the androids. What was more important was on the ledge. Bullet casings littered the ground. An analysis would reveal them to be domestic ammunition from Yeuzuishan, 8x22mm low power pistol ammunition. Formerly produced in Darkhit and only Darkhit. The weapon to those bullets couldn't be found on the ledge. A few other casings they found belonged to Exilvanians beyond the shadow of a doubt. 6x50mm, produced all over Exilvania and rarely found outside of it. The Exers were always very careful to not let their weapons fall into others' hands.

There was blood on the ledge too. A lot of blood. Traces of it led to the egde of the ledge. Whoever had bled here had made their way down the cliffs after being wounded or killed. Wether they did so voluntarily or were forced to do so...well...there was no way of finding that out anymore. If they used their optical sensors to their fullest extent, they could possibly still see the outlines of a body down below, between jagged, sharp rocks and under the water. Whoever was down there was without a doubt dead.

There was another thing that would most likely get their attention very quickly. It probably didn't immediately due to being strategically placed in the shadows and further obstructed by some rocks. It seemed to be a wooden door. Not a well made one mind you but a simple, two part wooden door that would keep the worst of the weather out of whatever was behind it. The rocks before it had clearly been placed there in order to close it off or obstruct it in some other way. Scans with the androids' other sensors would reveal a weak and fleeting presence of chemicals in the air.
