Chapter Five – Eleusis

Chapter Five – Eleusis

Chapter Five Eleusis   My troops march through the streets of Ravnall. The infantry parade in the centre, while the Frames line the flanks. The civilians of Ravnall watch us with fear glistened eyes, many try to lock us out. Shutters are closed, doors barred and sealed, and yet still children find ways to lean out and watch as my soldiers march victorious through their hovels called homes. I watch it all from the roof of one of the towers….

Chapter Four – Kaldratos

Chapter Four Kaldratos   We enter in from the roof. We’re all equipped with cloakers. Every now and again I see faint flickers as my troops move around the room. Silent as death’s own spectre. Octavian throws up a jammer. There’s a low beep as it comes in, creating a small ten-meter bubble that stops all noise from getting out. Downstairs, Cassandra has the exits surrounded.

Chapter One – Eleusis

Chapter One Eleusis   “Bloody hell!” I swerved as the plasma bolts exploded around me, sending snow and dirt and rocks hailing around me. I could hear the sounds as the rocks beat against my Frame, as they clanged off the metal exterior. “Monika, send Darren’s unit around to flank them, we can’t hold this position much longer!” God damn, Orno, if only you had listened to me. “We’re being beaten back, sir.” Monika’s Frame moved into my view, her…
