The Unchained Gang  

An The team now have a 2ton grav truck complete with pintal mounts

for their two MGs. Three hours after leaving Frt Galleant they come to a Large river.

 They have to cross it to go further north. The last bridge crossing they saw was

 destroyed. The team comes across a group of abandonded prisoners, some that

 seem infected with something.

The Shopping Plaza  

 The Team comes on a Shopping plaza. Their is purple moss or vegetation growing

 everywhere. There is a commotion at the Mall in the center of the plaza.

It is surrounded by a few hundred Really fat people trying to get in.

As they drive up the civilians don't look well. They turn from banging at the mall entrance

 and start to charge the truck screaming "KILL ME PLEEEEEASE!" while they are foaming

purple goo from their mouths.

As they get closer to the truck, a few trip and EXPLODE, destroying several of their

 comrades. This actually seems to make them happy. As they giddily chase the truck a few

 of the team jet pack off the truck and approach the now abandoned Mall.

From the loud speakers a woman thanks you for coming to save her.

An attractive Andromeda Human woman opens the doors. Dress in a wrinkled business suit

executive of "Long Ship Agricultural Alliance" as Suskillon was a major food

producer and supplied food to the whole sector and did a large amount of trade with the

 PACT Worlds.

 She explains she is the last of the managers left here on planet. She stayed to help get the

 farmers and agro techs transport to REOS. That's when she discovered that this weird

 fungus the "Bugs of the Swarm" had been spraying on the fields was actually turning

 people exposed to it into walking bombs.

 She was then trapped in the Long Ship offices here in the Mall and  missed the last

 transport out of town her self.  That is when the "Infected" showed up.

In gratitude the Long Ship exc, Reda Cooper, offers to let the team use her private

star yacht if they can only get her  back to the REOS star port.

The team's truck loops back around and picks them up leaving

 the dying infected jogging and occasionally exploding behind.


Reda Cooper,

On the left up the Mountain a bit is a palatial ski resort which is crawling with Swarm bugs.

The Temple seems ignored. The other SDF truck is there among with 3 dead SDF soldiers

 and a dozen dead large bugs. The Temple seems weirdly peaceful considering the

 situation. The two large front doors are closed with the raise words in Shirren

The team make an engineering check and realise that by touching both sides of the word

for Friendship and the door opens inward.

The team frees Xelonan from the Inner Sanctum. The team finds out why the

SDF want to save this guy. The Priest says he has discovered that the temple

 along with a missing component can be used to talk to the SWARM, and maybe

 get them to calm down? He had sent his acolyte to the UT system to look for the

 missing piece a few months ago when the Swarm started invading the sector,

but he hasn't heard from him since.
