In the previous installment, Briggs had a surprise rendezvous with an old friend among the Sargasso extraction team. A night of celebratory Wiki Wackers served as a successful departure from the seriousness of war, but the spell of normalcy is unfortunately short-lived. Interrupted by a surprise Chosen attack, an enormous Drop Pod enters the fray. The Accord excavation will just have to wait. At over three meters in height, the Chosen monstrosity towers over the pod from which it spawned. Bearing the weight of an enormous Gatling-style machine gun, its jagged crimson armor exudes an audible...

With a fear of the unknown wasteland, Emmerich refuses to send operators to explore the signal. If they won’t go, Briggs will but she won’t find what she is expecting. In a flood of panic, I jerk the flare wildly in one sweeping motion. The glow barely...
