“Since 3021, we’ve faced our fair share of challenges, and come through them stronger. That’s because we have never let go of a belief that has guided us ever since our founding; our conviction that we can change this country for the better.”

November 6th, 3025 : System – Dumassas : As the unit settled back into their chosen homeland, they set about rebuilding their most damaged Mechs and reassembling their Line unit. Colonel Kanto Jokukad “Pitbull” and Lt SG Candy Dulfer went for a vacation, and some personal time off.
November 9th : The unit organized its reserve conventional air units, six (6) Guardian Fighters and six (6) Titan Combat Helicopters to provide the air strike component of the bombardment of Warlord Vaas Montenegro’s Armenian Rookeries, along with some infantry and Kate & Leopold to blast the bandits and their fortress into ruin. The units were then sent to The District of Guaviare, to await the operation later in the month.
November 10th : The unit began an advertising campaign on the world-wide network run by ComStar, attempting to make their new company, Rockhopper Exploration look like it was in full operating swing, in the hopes that it might attract its lost surviving agents. They also deployed the company’s Type-S “Seeker” Mining Shuttle into the Trojans, in hopes they might begin to ferret out more information regarding The Trojan Dominion of Cortez.
November 13th : * “The Fold Fiends” jumped back into the Dumassas system. They began the burn down to Terramatrix, and were informed of the capture of the “Kiss of Death” and various other supplies and equipment awaiting them on their return.
November 15th : Doctor Max Helmut “Moxie”, having begun the collection of Nexu for his “Battlecats”, was informed to attend Warlord Varsha Arkadjian as her “doctor”. He then began a long, sweaty and dangerous trek through the jungles of the deep Corazón Jungle, escorted by some of the best scouts in The (Territorial) District of Corazón. His trip to the “Great Egg” was about to begin…
November 16th : The unit’s raid on the Armenian Rookeries went off without a hitch. The third site, commanded by Citra Talugmai-Montenegro surrendered without a fight, and after they were captured, their remaining fortress was blasted into ruin by the unit’s Long Toms and Inferno rounds. Within days, the unit was back on the road, to reunite in its garrison sites.
November 20th : Moxie finally entered an isolated valley deep in the Corazón Jungle, and discovered the Wreck of the “Concordat Mercy”. Led inside, he discovered the ruins in poor condition, but had at some point after its crash, been partially rebuilt to operate as a research base for an unknown organization. He took a few data holos, and then assisted in the birth of Warlord Varsha’s daughter, Fuerza. The only notable object in the medical bay, was the automated recovery bed, which was, indeed, egg-shaped.
Once his immediate demands were met, he wandered through the ruins, escorted by a couple guards, more to protect him than stop him from doing anything, and after learning something of what systems remained intact, largely the main power core, many of its weapons systems, and basic life support, he surreptitiously stole the navigational core, and checked back in on his charges. Lastly, he bounced a signal off the communications satellite owned by Mia Ospina, whose location beacon he had access to, and noted the geographic location of the wreckage for future reference.
November 22nd : The Fold Fiends landed at * Landhold : Garrison, as did Pitbull fro his vacation. Inspections began of the unit, as they received their pay and took a short period of R&R, before taking over the garrison portion of their stay on-planet. * “The Dead Man’s Hand” began readying a transfer of their assets to the “Victory’s Blood”, and officially began looking for a new contract.
November 23rd : Word came via HPG that System – Belladonna wasn’t a very viable place to conduct a tech raid. Not only were its immigration policies closely monitored, its proximity to New Avalon, and position as one of the Golden Five worlds, meant that it was heavily monitored, well-protected by crack forces, but the only noted Star League facility remaining was the starport where they disassembled old conventional aircraft, and even that was active and under garrison. Belladonna was not a good option.
The group began a Command Council meeting for their next options, and decided that they would take another month of downtime, and look for information regarding bandit activities or anything else in the systems bordering the Systems Constellation – “The Orion Rift”.
November 28th : Moxie returned to Tuadann, and set about contacting the unit regarding his finds. He spent the day organizing his Dingo Cats project, noting that several young cubs had been captured, and were under-going training by the locals for his project.
November 29th : The recent Command Council discussions brought up the discovery of various algae, sealed habitats and a research submarine in the stockpiles shipped onto Islas Brasilera during the height of the 3024 Small War. The group recognized that the best possible location for an underwater base would need some research.
November 30th : The group’s research listed the southern portions of the Atlantis Ocean as the most probable location for a base, as it matched the closest explanation as to why they had been gathering such goods on the island. They assigned Senior Tech (Research) Sarah “Sharkey” Richmond to organize and mount an expedition into the region, using their “spare” Aquarius Research Submarine assigned to Rockhopper, and under the guise of a resource exploration mission. She left for Islas Brasilera within hours.
November 31st : The unit assigned their remaining trainees from Fort Boomerang into two holding units; the 1st Ghost Battalion “The Shadow Ghosts” and the 2nd Ghost Battalion “The Bronze Ghosts”. These two units were assigned various duties in relation to * Castle Corazón, and scheduled to begin occupation of that facility the following day.
Moxie returned with the evidence he’d uncovered regarding the wreck of the Concordat Mercy, and displayed his holo evidence, racking his salvaged data-core over to future study. The individuals with interests in the history of the Star League immediately recognized the symbols that eluded Moxie…
The Rim World’s Republic was again noted as having relatively recent individuals conducting research on Terramatrix, in the Iron Dingoes own backyard.
