Default Re: TauOnline World 2 [Story]

Lukas Fletcher was not a happy man. Not a happy man at all. Riots all through Hive Lokran, most likely due to the pacification of a suspected chaos cult. Or, more worryingly, caused by a chaos cult. Not a lot he could do from his current position, on an observation deck at the top of hive Valeryn, overseeing the deployment of a full regiment of Arkadian 'Peacekeepers' to be sent on to Lokran. With him attached as a regimental advisor.

Already he could hear the whine of the twin turbines atop each Lord Corvine. The unusual vehicles were about the only thing short of Valkyries that would work in this godforsaken region of the planet. Fletcher didn't even bother to ask why the Arkadians considered it so valuable. There were also several larger aerial vehicles with massive lift jets carrying light tanks and APCs underneath. Why they needed tanks for a simple peacekeeping mission to one of their own hives was also not discussed.

Nathaniel Grimm, head of the 5th Arkadian, looked over the missive from the Guild Mechanicus with interest. A high speed rail line was certainly an interesting prospect. He had heard of the famous trans-Atenate express on Gudrun, and had wondered if a similar line might ever run through the Ashlan Peaks. He signed off on the basic idea, then sent it down to the administratum levels. They could work out the details of this, he needed to figure out a plan of attack to retake their lost hives from the Invictum Protectorate.

The opportunistic bastards there had capitalised on the Arkadians confusion when the governor was killed and they had fallen out of favour as temporary PDF, and in the mad rush to avoid the conflict between the Astartes and the horrific Xenos beasts. There was a way, he was sure, and launching the attack from Defiance seemed somehow fitting.
