Session One, Operation One.
Day One, 16:00
The group began to assemble at the main landtrain station in Perdix, as ordered. The first to arrive was Jacques Dubois followed by Ruin Dmitar. With their landtrain being loaded and not scheduled to leave until 19:00 the pair took the opportunity to visit the station-side pub which is where their commanding officer Lt. Samara Hellstrom found them. Layne-Lars Kinnesson arrived last and started by making her aquaintance with the tech team and the group’s battlemechs.
Day Three, 6:00
The landtrain arrived at 6:00, the trip took 35 hours, slightly above average for landtrain Travel between Argyre and Perdix. The team had been situated in an abandoned warehouse that was in good condition and on the outskirts of Argyre on a landtrain entrance route to the settlement. The similar but derelict building opposite was annexed.
The lancemates settled in. Lt. Samara Hellstrom made contact with Mayor Kent McAlester. Jacques Dubois explored the old quarter of Argyre, mingled with the locals and met Ken Tyler there. Layne-Lars Kinnesson busied herself with the techs and the technology. Ruin Dmitar also explored the settlement and acquired a stash of alcohol (due to the CO confiscating his supply).
The group reconvened and shared their discoveries to date and identified two likely ambush sites where the missing landtrains might have been attacked.
Day Three, 10:00
Lt. Samara Hellstrom led the lance of Locust battlemechs out of Argyre towards the closest of the suspected sites, four hours travel from Argyre. Layne-Lars Kinnesson interrogated the beacons along the path for the IFF from the last landtrain to go missing, until she identified the last beacon the missing train had pinged. Searching from that point Ruin Dmitar found and followed the fading tracks of the landtrain, and followed the trail to an abandoned mining complex. Jacques Dubois took point and led the investigation of the abandoned mine buildings and the group discovered two of the missing landtrains submerged in a flooded open-cut mine. Diving gear had let the hijackers access the environmentally-sealed landtrains, and the main shed had been made into a makeshift chop-shop. A mass-grave was also found at the site. The landtrain cargo was not found. The adjusted serial numbers and identification codes of the landtrains were recorded by the lance.
Day Three, 20:00
The group arrived back in Argyre and began planning their next move.
