Our game opens on Maddox meeting Takeko for a late night liaison, and pillow talk after leads to how she’d like to be with him, and there are options for them to be together. Unfortunately, duty and family seem to get in the way. Before she leaves him for the night, she cryptically warns Maddox to stay away from Lagos Township.
We cut to Kamiyari speaking to the Lagos Township Port Authority about their failure to pay “port fees”. Meanwhile, Kamiyari’s crew searches the cargo dock for the cargo container holding the key to the cache. His crew discover the container’s location and gain access, but they are ambushed and murdered by people in blue and white robes and their bodies are never recovered.
After collecting intelligence about the activities of the RTC forces on the planet, Fath and Maddox conclude that Tovar Bataar and his forces advance on Lagos Township. It’s rumored they intend to capture the Santiago Guild dropship in port, and raid the Felon estate near the spaceport. Felon forces move to engage the RTC forces advancing on the spaceport. With the battle underway, Baron Felon gets word from his command staff that an asteroid has been fired from the mass driver in orbit with Tyr and they can’t communicate with the command center in the orbital elevator. They estimate the ETA at the impact site is 30 minutes.
While Bastion attempts to evacuate those who are important to him, Maddox makes a general announcement to the RTC and the local populace to evacuate the area. Tovar Bataar and the RTC forces retreat, while evacuating a large number of Kurita and RTC residents.
As the rock hits, a religious ceremony takes place in a cavern near Highgate Hold. There the celebrant, Roman Luna, leads his congregation through a ceremony blessing Darwin, Tyson, and most important of all Jerome Blake, founder of ComStar. One of the congregation steps forward presenting the key to the cache to Preceptor Luna, and is revealed asAlexa Felon. Luna holds it aloft to his congregation announcing the call to holy Jihad. Their pilgrimage to find Kerensky and exiled Star League army is at hand.
Praise be to Blake!!!!
