Combat Report - July 3rd, 2040
Personnel deployed:

Yana: As Kwas has proven himself a capable battlefield commander, I will leave this mission up to him. This one is, in principle, much simpler than previous ones have been - find Echo, kill Echo, and come home.

Kwas: You heard the man! Move out, people!

(CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK)

Arilou: Echo near the docks!

(KSSHOW-CRACKLE)

Calcinite: GURRAGHOW . . .

(CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK)

dmboogie: Make that two Echos, Arilou.

(THUPP-CRACKLE)

Aquatoid: EEEOW!

(CLUNK CLUNK THUMP THUMP THUMP)

Princeps: Another by those garbage cans.

(THUPP-CRACKLE)

Aquatoid: EEEOW!

(THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP)

(WHIRR-CLUNK)

Griffiths: Nothing in this garage 'cept a bunch of old barrels.

(KSSHOW-CRACKLE)

Myst: Oh, how cute. Echo thinks he can shoot me in the back and get away with it.

(KSSHOW-CRACKLE)

Aquatoid: EEEOW!

dmboogie: Hey, Myst, got another diving suit up in that building over there.

Myst: I see it. Taking the shot.

(KSSHOW-CRACKLE)

Calcinite: GURRAGHOW . . .

(CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK)

Myst: Hey, Boogie? Got another Echo by that door.

dmboogie: Roger. Going for the kill.

(THUPP-CRACKLE)

Aquatoid: EEEOW!

(CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK)

Arilou: Echo sighted, top floor of the warehouse. Taking the shot.

(KSSHOW-CRACKLE)

Calcinite: GURRAGHOW . . .

Arilou: God damn, I love this gun.

(CLUMP CLUMP CLUMP)

Griffiths: You're not getting anywhere NEAR me!

(THUPP-CRACKLE)

Calcinite: GURRAGHOW . . .

(CLUMP CLUMP CLUMP)

dmboogie: Echo by the railyard!

(THUPP-CRACKLE)

Aquatoid: EEEOW!

(KSSHOW-CRACKLE)

(WHUMPH)

Aquatoid: EEEOW!

Griffiths: What the . . .

dmboogie: Echo's not too bright, Griffiths. They see a target, they take a potshot at it - even if they're standing by barrels full of flammable liquids. And if the shot hits one of those barrels instead of their targets, well . . .

Griffiths: Hilarity ensues?

Myst: For us, at least. Not so much for them.

(WHIRR-CLUNK)

dmboogie: Found the last Echo. It was hiding inside this building.

(KZAAASH)

Aquatoid: . . .

Kwas: Nice work, people. Bring everything back to the sub, and let's get back to base.
