[First the melody, which didn´t help this time]
[We wanted to squeeze in a last game before the end and it was short due to dice again, still no normal game...] (It ended in the first turn.)
Kerrigan looked at the Display. Burned and bruised from the last fight she had made her way to the Aplekton. As she approached she became aware of an unfolding confrontation. Led by a Nexus? What was going on? She decided to hurry. Even though she was on foot. The satellite feed gave her the positions.
The battle began and the first enemy infiltrator (Bran) shot down the Ikadron and then the Daturazi on this flank. While failing to discover the mine hidden on the streets.
On the other hand another camouflaged trooper (Prowler) moved cautiously and blew up a car standing there. What? Kerrigans lips begann to burn with Hunger, she wanted to get her hands on these poorly disguised guys. But she still was far off.
The Prowler continued into the building took to the shadows and shot down the Q-Drone and the Raktorak. Before the coordinated with the other one (Bran) to attack the Xeodron in the centre. It was hurt, but the ape-man was hit, still he survived. Why were legs so slow? Kerrigan hated running.
The surviving Daturazi ran towards the Prowler and smoked himself. Awhile the Kurgat repaired the Q-Drone. At least someone here knew what he was doing. Then the Kurgat emptied the magazine at the ape-am but he evaded all shots.
The Xeodron advanced into the middle and failed to hit the Prowler (dodged). It advanced further, as did the M-Drone and the Zerat, which ran towards the bus in front of her. A Zero appeared and shot at her, but missed. The Xeodrone was hit by the enemy mine. It was damaged. What was going on here? Was it made from a bad batch?
The M-Drone then attacked the ape-man twice and moved to block his line of sight towards the Zerat. Both times the ape dodged. Faulty targeting routines? Kerrigan pushed her legs to go faster.
Jumping on top of a stack of containers the Xeodrone shot at the Zero and got hit in the head (crit) and crashed down on it, motionless. Kerrigan stopped in her tracks. There was a call for retreat from the Nexus, after he tried in vain to scan the ape-man. Kerrigan cursed. She had to find another battlefield again. Once more she slid into the shadows.
For the first time in my Infinity career I conceded here. Nothing had worked and he had a full list, mine was half dead and I had no way of keeping him from the objectives. That we played after a long workday probably helped with that decision. Also I won exactly 2 FtF rolls in these two turns combined. Not the end we had hoped for in this campaign of weird dice rolls.
Also taking a Nexus as Lt. seems to be doom, never again, unless in Onyx.
