Episode 1: Covenant forces attempt to lay down suppressive fire, but humans surprise them by splitting up to deal with the threat.
Xbot uses the meager cover of a sapling to line up his shot while Crash recovers from his surprise. At the same time, Trael is scaling the log to get at Nomad.
as crash stops the ghost and opens fire, Xbot launches his rocket.
Elsewhere, Epic and Viper surprise Thunder, who had moved around behind the tree to get a better shot.
He manages to get one shot off before Epic and Viper's fire take him down. The shot hits by Epic's leg, rendering him unconscious.
Meanwhile, Trael has ninja'd his way up on the log.(there's supposed to be an image here, but photobucket is being derpy at the moment)
Nomad spots him and charges very quickly and lifts his shield to smash Trael into a Master Chief Pancake. The move proves (not) fatal, as it opens up Nomad's vulnerable midsection to a shot. A shot that Trael takes just in time.
Trael stands over his immobilized foe, victorious, and surveys the field.
here is what he sees:
Crash has been de-ghosted by xbot.
elsewhere, Jordan and Rjf818 have encountered some resistance.
which they have swiftly dispatched.
as if the Humans are victorious. however...
Covenant: Nomad is unconscious, Thunder is dead (not out) and Crash is de-ghosted.
your options are
1. Crash rushes Xbot, as he is both the one who de-ghosted him and the most vulnerable. Then moving on to take out Viper and Epic.
2. Crash stays by the Ghost, using it as cover while he cannibalizes one of the (possibly) still functional plasma cannons.
3. Crash rushes Trael and attempts to dispatch him, leaving him open to possible attack from Viper and Xbot.
Humans, your choices are:
A. Take the wounded and fall back, since Epic (who is unconscious) is the only one skilled with his katana, and thus the only one who can take on Crash in close quarters.
B. catch Crash in a crossfire with Trael, Viper, Rjf818, and jordan (xbot wouldn't waste a rocket on just one elite)
C. Take the wounded and hole up on the log, as covenant reinforcements are possible. (think of Rj and jordan though)
