Karen Olson and Sarge share one thing: a common goal. Military and bureaucratic methods of problem solving don't always go hand in hand, however, and they can't seem to agree on how to proceed. Nevertheless, human lives are at stake and damage control is important to both parties.

REPEATABLE (Recommended Level 24)
Karen Olson and Sarge share one thing: a common goal. Military and bureaucratic methods of problem solving don't always go hand in hand, however, and they can't seem to agree on how to proceed. Nevertheless, human lives are at stake and damage control is important to both parties.
Tier 1
Sarge has dispatched three of his most experienced teams, but they are undermanned and possibly besieged. Study the tactical map to learn their locations and what you can do to help them.
  • Examine the tactical map
  • Find Fireteam Bravo
  • Defend Fireteam Bravo's location
Tier 2
Fireteam Bravo seems to have things under control. Further ahead, though, a larger threat awaits - the very source of the attacks on their control point. Move forward and deal with it before searching for the next team.
  • Move forward and kill the Dreyrugr Lord
Tier 3
Fireteam Charlie was dispatched to retrieve air-dropped supplies in Ash Forest. Go to their location and assist them as best you can.
  • Find Fireteam Charlie
  • (0/3) Gather medical supplies
  • Gather sentry gun spare parts
  • Deliver supplies to Fireteam Charlie
  • Defend Fireteam Charlie's location
Tier 4
Contact with Fireteam Delta was lost a while back. Neither distress signals nor radio signals have come through since. Go to their last known location and find out why they haven't reported in.
  • Find Fireteam Delta's last known location
  • Follow the trail of Draug corpses to try to find Fireteam Delta
  • Kill the Henbane to avenge Fireteam Delta

A wall is only as strong as the brick that holds it up. We have always known this and for you to experience it in practice can only be a good thing.

These men were well-trained, taught to expect the coming chaos as an inevitability, as it should be. As a black wave rising. Their error was to think they could stand firm against it, unmoving, when it broke.

They attempted to dam the flow, but torrents were channeled around, to overcome them from all sides. A rigid strategy will always be undone by chance.

Your gift is adaptability. Do not squander it. If you allow yourself only one response, you will be as these fallen soldiers. Firing blindly into the howling night.

Goes to show why the Pentagon's default response is still "nuke it from orbit," even with all the paranormal agencies they've got advising them.

You know, bombing the everliving shit out of a bad situation has worked for them - and by proxy us - before. I hope you didn't think the nuclear tests were actually tests, that's adorable. Trouble is, it's so much harder to explain away now.

That's why the defense budget buck still stops with those poor assholes on the ground. They died for American values, they'll say, not from being eaten by bugs in Maine. In Maine! God.

I’m afraid I’m inclined to side with the angry young woman. I hold the professional occult fighting forces of the world in the highest regard, but in this situation they are on the back foot.

Some battle can be won by attrition. This is not one of them. As you have observed, the draug and their waterlogged victims are able to spawn like newts. The forest insects are equally prodigious. The military position will not, cannot, hold.

You are comrades in arms, though, and assisting them is nothing if not chivalrous.

Dialogue

Intro

Sarge: (talking to Karen Olson) I'll tell you one thing, kid: this isn't my first brush with the supernatural.
Sarge: Far from it. Our unit has seen some action.
Sarge: Johannesburg in '87. Siberia in '93. Rio in '08.
Sarge: Last month we spent a good four days knee deep in New Yorker excrement,
Sarge: hunting a flock of Incubi that got separated from their mistress.
Sarge: They turn feral, did you know that?
Karen Olson: Yes, I -
Sarge: (keeps talking right over Karen) They lose control. Used to be you could parley with the Succubi, avoid too much bloodshed.
Sarge: The rules have changed. There's no negotiating with the enemy any more.
Karen Olson: And that's not what we're suggesting, sir,
Karen Olson: but I'm not sure that taking our limited resources into a -
Karen Olson: "mano-a-mano" testosterone fuelled battle royale...
Karen Olson: This is not our brief, and I shouldn't have to remind you who's running the operation,
Karen Olson: even if we can't get a signal through the fog, it's the Paradivision-
Sarge: (interrupting) I've got scars all over, and I'm not just talking about the ones that bleed.
Sarge: But if I've learned one thing in the past forty years it's that they bleed, too.
Sarge: Every single one of 'em.
Karen Olson: Yes, they do, sir, but so do we and we bleed out a lot...

Sarge starts walking away from her

Karen Olson: (to his back) faster than...
Karen Olson: Urgh!
Karen Olson: I don't even know why I fucking bother with this fucking-
Karen Olson: (finally noticing you're listening) What the hell are you looking at?
