Hood thumbs his comm bead. "Spread out. Covering positions. Watch for ambushers, watch for traps." He takes a knee and uses his scope to scan for anything suspicious. He's keenly aware the Elysians may still have life in them and every second counts but 2nd squad will be no good to them dead. Once he is satisfied they aren't walking into a trap he says: "Zurk check the bodies. Mara see if you can pick up a trail or anything that might tell us what happened here."

"Where engineering... is concerned... you're the boss... Sawyer..." Hood is already regretting smoking that Zuban cigar as he continues to hack at the tree.

I wasn't thinking about speed so much as noise. I guess an axe isn't very quiet but thought a revving chain blade was more likely to attract bad guys.

If anyone's got better ideas I'm all ears. Don't want to be making all the decisions as a player but just trying to play the sergeant for good or ill.

"I saw it." Hoods walks up to a tree he judges to be of sufficient size to span the river and be used as a bridge by a trooper and starts chopping at it with the axe. Between chops he says: "We ford the river... cover the crossing... anchor the sentinel... with a winch line... use it to help... Sawyer climb up the bank."

Hood walks over to the sentinel and pops the supply bin. He takes out an axe and a bandolier of chemical flares. He swings the flares over his head to rest around his body and then takes one out, pops it, and quickly throws it in the river to see if it illuminates anything horrible.

Have we got any chemical flares that we could drop in the river and maybe illuminate it?

"That's what worries me. At the moment I'm thinking to drop a tree to get some of us across and create a beachhead, then get the sentinel up that rise. We could anchor it at the other side to get Sawyer up there. I'd rather take an axe to one of these boles than wade across. Throne knows what horrible monsters are in there. I'm open to suggestions though."

"What would be the ETA on making a crossing? Even re-positioning by a click will cost us an hour that our comrades might not have." Hood looks into the waters, wondering what alien fauna might be down there.

Hood hunkers down in the overgrowth and scans the riverbank with his magnoculars. He thumbs his microbead. "I want overwatch positions from cover. It would be too easy to get ambushed here. Sawyer you got any ideas about how to cross this thing? Especially with the Sentinel. Would it be practical to cut some trees down for a bridge?"

Spoiler: show
IIRC the sentinel has a chain blade for cutting through undergrowth

I'm not criticising Bob at all for what it's worth. Just expressing the feeling that I get when trying to level Hood up.

And I do agree we should be worried when we get into combat or there's no point.

I hope everyone knows I'm no power gamer but when I come to look at advances I really struggle to be able to afford anything decent what with the tier system and the requirements you need to purchase a talent or decent stat increase without paying 800 to 1,000xp for it (so far I have spent 3,000 total).

I'm not bothered by this - just surprised to be described as elite. I guess that comes down to the quality of what we are facing which obviously I don't know anything about.

We didn't feel very elite fighting Bolaxus either! I seem to remember a lot of shitting our pants. :)

"Okay Bookie's on point. Mara has the rearguard. Tactical advance to the river. Keep spread out and stay quiet. No way the sergeant got caught out by some Vetty insurgents. Whatever is out here is either very dangerous or very numerous. Or both. We find them - they don't find us."

Do you think? I feel like Hood is as crap today as when we started!

"Permission to go rescue our comrades, sir." Says Hood. He just wants to get on with whatever happens next. Bringing home their bodies, rescuing them from a horde of orks, joining them in their graves. He just doesn't want to be standing here in front of Gormund while the lieutenant reads his data slate like he doesn't even know the names of the men and women serving under him.
