    He thanks the pilots before gathering up weapons from the fallen covenant soldiers and storing them on a pelican to be sent to the lab.

    The sangheili starts to move to the engine room with a bit more haste, but still stays cautious after having motioned for the others to follow.

    They give you a thumbs up from the cockpit. The Pelican that you're loading the weapons into reaches capacity and then takes off. You're left with 8 squadrons of Marines, which makes a total of 40.

    You enter the engine room without much trouble. The room is spherical with the core in the middle. There is a path around the room with bulkheads at regular intervals, dividing the path into 8 sections. You see some Covenant forces working at a control panel across the room. They're three bulkheads from where you are now. They haven't spotted you yet, but that won't last.

    Once Mie entered, she briefly glanced around the engine room before seeing the covenant working on the control panel. She puts away her two plasma pistols and takes out the energy sword she was given then activates it. She orders the others to take point behind the bulkheads and motions [this elite] to follow her, assuming that someone who is proficient with dual swords would be more than sufficient at aiding her in close quarters. The elite attempts to move silently while taking cover behind whatever bulkheads she could use to stay hidden for longer.

    He signals for the marines to form up around the scorpion, getting one of them to climb inside, and begin moving towards the objective.

    You're already almost at the airlock, so it doesn't take long for you to arrive. Even though it's above your heads, this would be the most likely point of entry. This location is not the best for fortifications, but it certainly isn't the worst.

    The other Elite nods and follows you. Even though you're wearing power armor, you still manage to sneak almost silently. There is a pause between you taking point and the door opening. You look inside the next section to see a few crates scattered about. It doesn't look like anything could be hiding behind them, so you're in luck this time.

    He orders thirty of the marines to rappel up, and tells the others to set up a defense.

    Thirty aren't going to fit up there... more like 10 or 15. It isn't a very defended position either, unless they go inside. The rest are speeding through the fortification process.


    Tag list.

    (Unless you're too busy with your own RP. It's fine if you are.)
    That's it, right?

    Angry ram wakes up from the surprise sleep mode he entered, and looks around to see what happened.
    Jake, looks around, disoriented, and asks what happened while he was out.

    A few marine squads start making their way up. One of the marines down with you gets a transmission and speaks up.
    "Sir, we have incoming covvies."

    "I don't think you were out, but it looks like we've found all of those drives. That means we can leave."

    There's a frantic scramble as everyone tries to get into position in time. The Pelicans patroling the area near you open fire on something in the forest... right before a group of Covenant break through. (The trees, not your lines.)

    "Fire!"
    Milo directs the scorpion to fire on the larger groups of covenant, and begins firing in short bursts at the elites heads.

    Jake tries to find some way to get out of the ship through a faster route.

    Angry ram teleported to some random place on the planet to see if there is anybody else.

    There's an explosion and a group of Covenant go flying. You feel like you're doing damage, but there are so many of them you can't be sure. The marines up at the airlock are firing down. Apparently one of them brought a sniper rifle.

    You can hear some distant gunfire as you look at the map. The only covered way out would be the way you came in, but you could try going to the other side. It wouldn't be too much faster, but it'd still be faster.

    You don't find anyone. All of the life seems to be concentrated around the ship you were just on. All the intelligent life that is.

    Milo calls for a grenade volley, and climbs into the scorpion machine gun, aiming at the Covenant commanding officers.

    Jake looks to michael, ready for orders as to how to continue, listing off the available routes.

    (Sorry for the long delay in responses!)
    Mie glances at the crates as she kept moving forward. One down, two to go Mie thought to herself as she drew closer to the next entrance and takes a peek if she can.

    ((WHOOPS. Me too.))
    There isn't any glass or whatever might be used as a transparent material on the door, so no peeking. You have a feeling that this section was going to be more difficult that the last time.

    That's rather effective. The grenades kill most of the weaker Covenant, like the Grunts, instantly. It takes a little extra to off those Elites though. You see a few commanding officers in gold that are killed by your machine gun.

    @HunterC1998 (If you're still in it.)
    Michael stands there for a moment, thinking.
    "Right. I say we go out the way we came. That seems to be the most reasonable place."
    ---
    There are a fair number of life forms not already here. Mostly the humans and Covenant. The beacon isn't picking up any forerunners. At least not yet. (Let's see... @Arra , you still in this?)
