And so it begins...

This RP takes place about 2 months after the 2nd one. The characters are somewhere in Oregon.

---------------

Dr. Zanasiu threw down the newspaper he was reading with disgust. He was sitting on the foot of his bed or more accurately, the pull out sofa bed actually. The headline was "Investigation of Vegas Massacre in Full Swing".

"Something the matter, James?" Zachary asked, his ears swiveling towards James.

"The [censored] Vegas debacle! Not one mention of Dragonstorm but we're consistently referred to as terrorists!"

Zachary sighed and looked around the room. Their weapons were hidden in their van, except for Dr. Bailey's Glock 18 pistol on the desk opposite the two beds. The curtains were drawn, allowing only sliver of light.

Corporal Stern was also with them. He had been left out of much of the action, but was still angry at how things went down.

"You know, James? That was a disaster. I had no intention of being branded some kinda terrorist. Still, if asked to, I'd do it all again. We gotta remember why we fight."

Stern was eager to get back into the action. He knew little of what the future would hold, but he knew that this business wasn't over yet. It never was for him. "I can't believe this filth. I've read better stuff in the tabloids!"

During that time in Utah, the captured Dragonstorm data was continued to be decoded, uncovering secrets of the superweapon projects, and more importantly the loactions of several bases. The main backup base was found somewhere in Oregon, but the primary missions involve an elusive base set in a supertanker in San Diego, which at any time weight anchor and disappear into the Pacific Ocean.

As for the team, there were some drastic changes. Victor Summers, now a Captain, was selected as the new commanding officer of 'Crimson Squad', a team dedicated to the destruction of the Dragonstorm threat. Snow, now deemed a full-fledged citizen, and Aiko, became members in the squad. Professor Josephine "Dr Joe" Smithson was no longer needed in the field, but her scientific expertise puts her in special research into counter-acting the Dragonstorm's superweapons. And experiment X-279, renamed Chase, was put under Dr Joe's protective custody.

New members have been selected from special-ops and other experimental bases similar to Pelvanida. Eron, a Spider Monkey and saboteur. Tank, an Armadillo combat engineering and explosives specialist. Erin Matthews, a special-ops sniper. Mallard, a Duck former experiment and master diver. And Ice, a Wolf experiment with the skills lower temperatures and generate ice.

Crimson Squad's target: the San Diego base, where Dragonstorm's operations could escape into ocean waters, and where a strengthened legion of assassins are commanded by a professional hitman, Ariol...

Dr. Bailey came into the room with three plastic bags. "Lunch?" he asked.

"Sure, what you got?" Zachary asked.

"Ministrone soup, fish filet sandwiches and some vegan chili."

Dr. Zanasiu sighed. "Corporal, we have no data to go on. All we have are scattered reports of missing outdoorsmen and loggers," he said.

"Remember that Dragonstorm kidnaps its subjects. It is quite possible that the missing people could have been taken by them," Zachary said.

"You also need to keep in mind that logging is not a safe profession by any stretch of the imagination. Not to mention that inexperienced hikers or campers could end up lost in the wilderness," Dr. Bailey replied.

Zachary sighed. "Back to square one," he said.

Aisha sighed as she stirred from her "Bed. which was really the front seat of the truck Alfred the Bison had been driving, pushed down flat. It was like sleeping on a rock. A crumpled copy of today's paper lay at her feet. "Instead of classing Dragonstorm as the terrorists.. WE'RE the terrorists! The ignorance of the mainstream media never ceases to astound" She grumbled as Dr Landon opened the door. They were parked on a little used road in the Oregon wilderness, they had spent the last two months hot on the trail of Dragonstorm, they were getting close, or so she hoped..

"Aisha, Dr. Landon, I think it may be best if we stay at the Redwood Inn for a bit. We should really meet up with Dr. Zanasiu and the rest of the group and discuss tactics and share our findings," Alfred said, taking a sip of water. "Erm, what exactly are our findings? Besides the fact that we occasionally see logging trucks pass down this road." he added.

-----------------------

Dr. Bailey continued surfing the Internet for newspaper articles at the same time he was eating a sandwich. He then looked up from the laptop. "There's not one mention of the Dr. Shelton or Dr. Kerzach in any newspaper," he said.

"Makes sense, remember that they were stuck aboard Lab 101," Zachary replied, taking a drink of cola.

"If only there were some data back at Pelvanida to go on,"

Dr. Zanasiu shook his head. "We are under, no circumstances, setting foot in Nevada. Is that clear?"

Our finding are absolutely nothing" aisha said with a trace of bitterness " Dragonstorm has gone to ground..the trail's gone cold. hopefully Zanasiu and his friends have had better luck' she loosened her neck feeling a crackle as the bones reset. "How far is the in from here. Remember our cover story.. Dr Landon is my uncle I'm his niece, and you're our pet bison..' she cracked.

"Please, I prefer the term the term 'domestic help'," Alfred said with a grin as he started the engine, "As for the distance, we're looking at an hour or two."

As Alfred turned the truck around and drove back out of the country road; he failed to notice a camera hidden in the canopy of leaves above him.

--------------------------------------

A few hundred miles away from the camera, Dr. Branston and several technicians was sitting in front of the console in Lab 101. He activated the exterior camera, around him were the Dragonstorm scientists. Most of them had traded their white labcoats for flannel and denim.

Dr. Branston grinned; it really was a stroke of genius to disguise the staff and the lab as a logging camp.

"Ok domestic help it is.. I can survive an hour or so.. " aisha said.
Dr Landon frowned.. "well, we just have to keep searching, we can't go back to Nevada, or our homes at this point.."

Alfred continued down the road without incident.

An hour later, he arrived at a town called Culeston. The town itself was small but quite lively.

He then pulled up to the Redwood Inn.

"Well, we're here," Alfred said, getting out of the truck.

Once briefed on their mission, Vic and his team suited up for battle and loaded into two Cayuse helicopters, backed by four Blackhawks. The copters levitated into the sky and headed west to California...

----------

At the San Diego base, security was beefed up as the final shipment of supplies was being loaded onto the supertanker. As soon as it's finished, the ship will set sail into international waters. There, some interested arms dealers will visit to to look at Dragonstorm's progess and possible "merchantise." Deathwind and the only other functional experiments were held in a series of clear chambers to be watched as displays for the potential customers.

Ariol stands in the bridge overlooking the operation. For two months he recruited as many assassins, hitmen, and mercenaries as possible. With all that happened at Pelvanida by a handful of meddlers, he has no intentions of taking any chances...

From near the San Diego base, a set of six figures watched as the preparations were made. Kagetora set his binoculars down, shaking his head with a sigh.
"It's guarded heavily. We have almost no chance of getting within a hundred yards of that ship..."
He said irately. For months, he, Neku, Cale, Hawkeye, Slash, and Agito had been hunting down and disabling Dragonstorm-related bases, slowly attempting to deconstruct the project. Finding out about a score like this was almost irresistable, and they had traveled to California to attempt to disrupt the shipment.
Cale punched his fist into his open palm.
"Darn. This is too much of a chance to let slip by." He said with a low growl. Neku nodded.
"He's right."
Agito and Slash nodded as well.
"We have to do something."
"We do."
Hawkeye sighed.
"All of you, patience. We can't risk causing a scene, or else we'll be hunted down."
He said calmly...

Alfred went up to the check in desk. "Excuse me, sir but we are here to check in."

The clerk, a grizzled old Couger looked at him, Dr. Landon and Aisha. "All three of you?" he asked.

"That's right."

"Do you all want separate rooms or not?"

Alfred then turned to Aisha and Dr. Landon. "So you all want to share a room with me? It'll be cheaper."

-----------------------

"We need somewhere to start but where?" Dr. Bailey asked.

Dr. Zanasiu shrugged. "I haven't a damned clue. The only people who may even know of anything strange are either loggers, outdoorsmen or law enforcement."

"So that's a valid starting point."

"One problem, we don't know if those people are valid witnesses. In a worst case scenario, they could be Dragonstorm personnel."

Soon, Crimson Squad has entered San Diego and neared the base, staying out of visual range.

"What can you see down there?" Vic asked.

Erin was peering down through her rifle scope. "They got snipers across the ship and the pier," she replied. "Maybe some anti-aircraft weapons to add. We can't hit it like this."

"Then we'll have to board by sea. Pilot, land several docks away from here. We'll set up some rubber raider crafts and get on board as soon as they set sail."

The helicopters turned and headed to some secluded docks to land...

Neku turned and looked at the helicopters.
"Guys, we may have just found our chance. C'mon, let's go rendezvous with them. Maybe we can get some help."
He said, and the six ran to where the helicopters were headed...

"So, is there a way to test if they are real witnesses?" Corporal Stern asked. "A member of Dragonstorm might slip up if we ask them the right thing."

"You know Corporal, you have a good idea. Now the only problem how do we ask without giving away our true intentions. As for who will do the asking, you, Cobalt Squad and PFC Reynolds will have to do so as we really have no authority," Dr. Zanasiu said. He was now drinking some hot tea.

"As for what to ask, how about the rules and regulations of logging or fishing. If they screw it up, we can reasonably suspect that they are really not who they claim to be," Dr. Bailey said. He was taking sips of Coke.

' sure, we can sghare a room, we need to keep our expemses in check. I've gott a credit card. But My father won't be happy if he gets a huge ceredit card bill, hes my cosigner on my cards.," aisha said. 'Does this place have a pool?' she asked the clerk
_
If there are only two beds to a room, I'll sleep on the floor' Dr Landon said.

"We do," the clerk replied. "It is in the back."

"One room for all of us," Alfred said to the clerk.

The clerk rang it up on his register. "That will be $50 per night,"

Alfred stepped back and let Aisha pay.

"Aisha, I'm going to try to get a job with a construction company to see if I can uncover anything," he said.

"If we are going 'undercover', is there any position I ought to take?" Corporal Stern asked. "I could easily pose as a security guard or a police officer, given the right materials and a bit of practice."
