It was a cold, clear night at the old Leonmeccanica facility in Norway. Naomi stood on the core of her red and grey machine, Shackled Queen. She heard her comm unit click but ignored it. It wasn’t time yet. The other three machines with her belonged to some group of mercenaries or another, but she didn’t care about them. The facility’s contents were what mattered to her, and that was the reason they’d come in the first place.
The facility was reportedly an old bio-engineering plant the Corporation had been fooling with prior to the activation of the towers. What concerned Naomi, however, were the rumours floating around that something else was there, something terrible, something powerful, something made with Old World technology. She looked through her binoculars again then to the other ACs she’d been forced to work with.
On her left was a heavy quad unit, armed with sniper equipment. It wa

It was a quiet day on level eight. Light rain fell over the area. A cool breeze carried the scents of industry with it. A young woman lay prone on the eighth floor of a building that was under construction. She had neon green hair and wore a heavy, black, ultra-Kevlar vest. The right shoulder was heavily reinforced with ceramic plates and had foam stuffed under it. She was completely soaked from the rain because she’d been there the better part of four hours.
Neon lights flickered in the distance and some of them showed words in different languages. They did nothing helpful for her though, they just added glare to the image in her sniper scope. She made another adjustment to compensate for the distracting halo of light the neon signs created. It helped, but not much.
She breathed softly and a shiver ran through her body when she heard her comm unit click; it was almost time. She adjusted her rifle
Untitled No. 2Symphia panted hard while she knelt in a mechanical room. She nearly bit her tongue off when she dug a mushroomed hollow point slug out of her left thigh. It felt more and more like TXS had decided to hunt her actively instead of attempting to root out the Resistance itself. She pressed two thick gauze pads over the wound and wrapped bandages as tightly around her leg as she dared.
She put weight on it, it hurt like the dickens, but she could stand on it without limping. If she could just make it back to the rest of her raiding party, then Serena or Sarah could collapse the tunnel or something. She tossed a soda can out into the tunnel and quickly pulled her bulletproof cape around herself when gunfire filled the hall. So much for that idea... she thought.
She pulled one of the fragmentation grenades from her weapon harness and pulled the pin on it. She crept up to the doorway and threw it in a rather awkward fashion down the tunnel towa
An Awkward DeliveryCharisse exhaled, pausing at a corner, under an oil-fired lamp. The dim golden light it cast flickered when she approached and grew significantly brighter when she stood under it. In the distance she could hear gunshots and shouting, but paid them no mind, they had nothing to do with her. Someone nearby shouted "thief!" just before a man dressed in black shot past her into the alleyway.
Two more men, both sporting the latest model of rifle, approached her, pausing to look into her face. "You seen a man in black come past here?" one of them asked. She raised her left hand and pointed further down the street instead of into the alleyway. Idiots... the cat demon thought, watching them head the wrong direction. She turned into the darkened alleyway, her boots tapping lightly against the cobbles.
She paused when she felt a hand on her ankle and turned, ready to drive one of her chain spears into the owner's head. "Unhand me!" she hissed.
"Th-thank you... I never would have escaped without y
