As bob wonders what in gods name he just got himself into, INV stands out from his throne room on the side of volcano. He is the lord of the sever and he knows taking him down will be a challenge to anyone. Ever since the last revolution a month ago against his rule, he has been living the high life. Nobody can touch him. But then he hears and argy land in front of the throne room. INV tenses up. He does not know who or what is on the other side of the door. All of a sudden one of INVs advisors come running into the room. He is out of breath. “ your... your majesty...” he pants. “The resistance... there.. there alive....” INVs mood changes. “alive? How long has it been a month? I do not think we have to worry. Don’t bother them for now...” “But... one of the govoners has been murderd and one of our ships is gone...” The advisor warns “We should probably just address this... we don’t know how strong they are...” “Fine.” INV answers back, “ Find them”
Outside the building is a small patrol group all on raptors. One extra for bob. “We have orders to take you to the swamp front correct?” One of them asks. “Yes I do.” Bob replies as he mounts the raptor. The group begin to descend into the trenches as the ride to the front. The closer they get the more eerie it becomes. The sky is a dusty grey color and two months of war near a swamp has caused the trenches to become soggy and infested with compys. The war has also caused the soldiers pain. Many of them staring into space or trying to sleep on the soggy muddy ground. None speak. Soon enough the patrol reaches a ladder. “We drop you here. The loyalists have a trench half way in the swamp. We think it’s abandoned though. Probably digging in somewhere else.You continue on foot from here. May the oversear bless you safe passage.” The patrol leader says as bob climbs the ladder. And into the no mans land ahead.
