The Book of Shadows (Part 1, Recruiting Trip) 11AM to 4PM

After Canopus IV went silent in early 3071, the Word of Blake’s 41st Shadow Division completed a series of devastating raids across the Magistracy in an effort to eliminate the MAF as functional entity. The raid on Lindenmarle was one of the few that did not include nuclear weapon attacks. This battle instead involved elements of the 41st Shadow hunting down several key personnel across the planet. One of these “recruiting” units ran into a hidden company of Canopian Fusiliers at the base of the Karander Mountains. Mayhem ensued….
