Defend the Covenant colony of Beta Maximus. Drive back the Chat forces.
The Scouting Fleet of Generous Distribution has arrived at the forest world of Beta Maximus 35b. The Covenant colony is currently under fire from the Chat Empire's 5th Legion, which is also the Admin Haloprov's personal unit. Veteran soldiers and intelligence specialists Tyler Alshwind and Jess McKathy are here to assist the fleet in the endeavor. Division One, led by Alshwind and 'Lolam, will go groundside and repel the enemy. Division Two, labeled Battleforce: God's End and led by McKathy, will stand by in orbit until the enemy retreats, where they must pursue at all costs.
Division Two (B:GE) expect to be in the field for an extended period of time. Do not compromise stealth.
The Kig-yar: "Beta maxamus is where I live, in a settlement with a wife from the scouting fleet, I am a new eden Kig-yar. I was also their when we where fighting for control of the planet. If you need anything, my name is Yuar'tch. I would die defending this planet. Many people think Kig-yar to be cowardly.... Weal, out hear, we have something to fight for, I, have something to fight for. If I do anything cowardly while hear, shoot me."
Yuar'tch puts a energy cutlass on his side, a focus rifle and a shotgun on his back, the shotgun has a extra long beral with a retractable bayonet. And a magnum on his hip. In his hand he holds a crystal javelin. He enters a drop pod, waiting for the go.
Tyler couldn't help but laugh to himself, seeing them playfully arguing over their weapon choice. For him, it was simple, a modified S316R-A, making his deisgnated marskmen rifle automatic, and his trusty DLGM911, a heavy handgun.
A Sangheili Ultra walked by the lined up pods, banging on each one, possibly surprising the inhabitants.
Ultra "Obey the human. He know's what he's doing. If you have questions or concerns, good for you! Keep it to yourself. The open window signal will come in about 10 minutes. After that, the final call is up to the human. That's right, your lives are in the hands of a HUMAN."
A loud metallic bang echoed through the loweer chamber as a Chat magnetic round impacted the ship.
Ultra "Try not to get yourself melted. In my day, we had Demons flying through space with bombs trying to hunt us down. Today, you should have no fear."
Tyler, taking a deep breath, "You got it Ultra," as the thought have having blood on his hands did not sit well with him. He felt his pod lurch as it left the ship and begin travelling down towards the planet.
In spite of the fact that he can clearly get shot down before he makes it down, Yuar'tch continues to just read his book as he waits. Not because he isn't afraid of his chances of being shot by anti air fire while in his pod, but because he knows he can't do anything about it anyway if it tries to happen.
The sound of Howard's scream resonates in Tyler's mic as he holds on to the bars in the pod. He edits the coordinates of his pod. "Be advised, my new location with be about 500 meters southwest of dropsite Alpha."
Aylin felt her pod impact the surface. She pressed several icons on the screen.
Aylin "I landed closer to alpha than I thought. I'm right outside the colony. Any nearby Unggoy and Kig-yar units converge on me."
She kicked out the door of the pod, revealing that it was actually lodged in the wall of the city itself. Unfortunately, the angle at which it was stuck forced her to jump down to the outside of the wall. She grabbed her weapons and dropped down.
Awaiting nearby were a few grunts.
Grunt Major "Follow Demon!"
Aylin "Stick with me. We'll follow the wall until we reach the gate. Shout if you see Chat."
Grunt Minor "Shouting!"
A small group of Chat troopers appeared in front of them. Aylin raised her weapon and fired.
Tyler's pod landed outside of the colony as he got out, "This is Tyler, I'm about two hundred meters outside of the colony. I'll be coming up from the southwest, over." He exited the pod, and hurried to regroup with his team.
Tyler uses the agro Talot is drawing to take pop shots at the enemy, down soldier after soldier. "Division one, this is team leader TYler Alshwind reporting in. I also have with my Talot, are there any other forces in the area, over."
The Kig-yar: "Either way, I think its a bit more important that we...." *his over shield flashes their is the sound of a rock hitting a tin can and blood splatters from a new hole in his head, followed by the sound of a gunshot.*
A Kig-yar with a sword and crystal spear charges 34 chat gunmen, his shield shrugs off most of their shots with out taking damage, he comes into range and throws the javelin into the chest of a chat solder, it goes in and stabs someone on the other side, then its spearhead explodes taking out 10 of them, the Kig-yar then draws his crystal cutlass and it now in melee distance though with a 89% damaged shield, he slices the head off one chat trooper then runs another through, hacks the leg off another, but then is headshotted. As he dies the blade glows, then self destructs taking out 15 of them.
A covenant super cruiser comes down and hovers 4500ft above the ground, it beams down fully armored Kig-yar onboard fully armored moa. 45 Kig-yar riders are armed with lances and 85 are armed with focus rifles with extra long barrels and bayonets.
The Kig-yar calvary charges the chat, the ones with lances take the front, with activated point defense gauntlets. Chat shoot at them as they come, but they keep coming in, the ones with focus rifles fire ahead as the front line of lances go forward, then just as the focus rifles cool the front line of lances run into the chat impaling them. As the chat begin to run the second line of lances throw their lances into their backs, the focus rifles shoot the remaining ones, but a single chat solder escapes into a dark brown house.
L'ka's foot lashed out at a Chat Trooper, killing him instantly. L'ka then turned to punch down a Trooper that tried to sneak up on him. Another trooper went in for a tackle. L'ka grabbed the Trooper and swung him away into a larger group.
"Is this all you have? Where are the real warriors, Empire?"
in a cobble stone house up ahead a female Kig-yar armed with a CRAM fires at chat who are trying to get in through the door. She fires at a generator on a telephone pole above 5, sparks rain down on them to no effect.
L'ka eventually found himself surrounded by Chat Troops. Two troops ran at L'ka, hoping to subdue the Sanghelli warrior. They were met with heavy blows from the creature in crimson armor. But four came, and then eight, and then sixteen. High-Penetration Bullets rained upon his energy shields and fists and feet slammed against his body. L'ka was being overwhelmed by the sheer amount of Chat Troops.
The covenant super cruiser was the whole time still in air, thus why no chat air units. The super cruiser releases a wave of phantoms each one carrying a shade turret and 35 Kig-yar marksmen, delivering them to roofs. Lord of the Stars is in the seat of one of the shade turrets.

L'ka unsheathed his Energy Swords and kneeled. The Chat troops were only firing now, trying not to take anymore casualties. L'ka's thrusters emitted a whirring sound.
Suddenly, 35 Kig-yar wraiths and 15 scorpion tanks at the front line with 85 Kig-yar calverymen behind them just so happen to be coming in this direction with phantoms dropping off units onto roof tops.
Trol' reached L'ka. At Trol's sight, the Chat surrounding them backed off. Trol' used the oppurtunity to sheathe his swords, lift L'ka, and begin running back to the others, using his thrusters to get there quickly.
Trol' used his thrusters to leap over the wall of defending Kig-Yar and land in front of Tyler. He put his comrade on the ground. The Phantom descended, and the other Sanghelli got off. Shal kneeled near L'ka.
"Friend. You should not have ran in so haphazardly."
L'ka tried to get up, but couldn't.
"You are right, brother. I'm an idiot. I do not deserve to serve with the Kaidon."
Shal' struggled to carry L'ka into the Phantom. The Phantom ascended. Our brave warriors looked at their dire situation with bravery and confidence.
In this section of the city Kig-yar begin attempt to build a 45ft wall around all areas secure, with plans to put shade turrets on the top. Effectively making the area worthy of being town square assuming it isn't already. The wall will be just thick enough for shade turrets and riflemen to still have walking space as well as a few crates.
Tyler and the group started heading towards the city as he looks at all the dead bodies laying around. "Fleet Master, area is secure. Start sending in heavy equipment and troops." As he walks around, he meets some of the other surving soldiers.
Tyler walks through the city, taking not of the damage done to it, and seeing both Resistance and forces loyal to the Covenant moving about. However, a group of two soldiers catch his eye as they are decked out in full military gear, and have a light blue light emiting from their eyes.
Tyler "Roger that," turning to the other troops, "Everyone finish eating and let's get moving. We still need to secure the nothern sectors of the city." Tyler pops open and MRE and heats he using the barrel of his rifle.
Tyler, remembering what Jess told him, "Who says we aren't just as bad? We are the ones burning people alive. We are the ones terrorizing the galaxy. Sure, we say its for a good cause, and maybe it is, but is it really for us to judge?"
Tyler, standing up, "I used to live for that. I wanted to make the Chat pay for what they did to my family and planet. But now, I want to liberate this galaxy, not turn into the very maonster I want to destroy."

Talot "well sometimes you have to use the enemys tactic against them"
Tyler "Well this is not what we stand for Talot. When we win this war," turning to all the soldiers near them, "And we will win, we all we have to pay for the choices we made. If we use to fear to keep our enemy in check, then we become the Chat Empire."
Tyler "We build a government in which worlds are free to join as they will. Leaders will be selected by the people, and for the people, with checks in place to keep on section from gaining or holding too much power. And are military will be strong enough to protect us, but not too big." He turns to Allision, "And we will punish everyone who has done their share of wrong in this galaxy, including myself."

Talot "why punish you? All you have been doing is making this galaxy a better place... but if it does come to that remember i have your back"
Tyler "Well thank you Talot, but remember, I use to be a bounty hunter... and I've done my share of things that would make me even question who's side I was on." He looks at everyone else, "We ready to move out?"

Talot "And so have I but should be pardoned you have been the main help for the resistance!"
Checking his weapon, "But answer me this, if a group uses gurellia tactics and strikes fear into the galaxy by attacking both civilian and military areas in the name of freedom and liberation, would we call them terrorists or freedom fighters?"
Tyler "Once we finish, then you two can bicker, but right now..." a car explodes as a machine gun and a rangers open fire on the group. Two tanks and a heavy jeep come down the street. "Everyone into the houses, find some cover and mvoe it."
The walls are still a lower elevation then the buildings on the out side of them, some Kig-yar use jet packs to jet to a building window not far from the wall, others sinply jump off the wall to the streets below, because they are lightly built they manage it with out fall damage. The wall's gait is 3 tanks being used as a plug, they move and let out a squadron of infantry and cavalry, going out and assuming firing positions and waiting.
Stars: "I don't want to see the enemy so much as make it past the tank traps with out being very sorry they tried, got it!"
Kig-yar firing squads: "All Hail Lord of the Stars!"
The remaining shades open fire, bolts of plasma fly from them at 2482fps. The tanks behind the blockade open up, riflemen on and off the walls fire at them. The cavalry units wait behind cover for their signal to charge, readying grenades.
SEAL "Tyler, the tanks are targeting you, get out of there."
Tyler runs as the main gun targets him, and blasts the second floor of the building. The turrets and ranger by the tanks open fire, cutting down the charge as they deploy two auto turrets to cover thier flanks.
Chat soldier "This is Thatos Five-Three, requesting fire support on the northeast section of the city, by the fountain."
Yet the calvary contenue to charge, 67% of them are lost before they can get in range, but once they finally do, the ones close enough throw their crystal javelins, the spears blamite spearheads have a layer of plasma spear head over them as they fly, then they imbed into their targets and a second and a half latter they explode, lighting the area up in pink mingled with blue.
As the cavalry use their spears, they then begin throwing plasma grenades, they are slightly bigger and 5 times more powerful then the standard version.
78% of the cavalry lost they still advance, drawing their swords they begin hacking through the crowed, some leap off their moa and board tanks, trying to take them over or simply grenade them.
Moments latter all cavalry who went on the charge are lost, Kig-yar and moa bodies litter the streets.
Infantry and wall guards then begin firing once more, the 4 with plasma launchers opening up first, followed by shades and riflemen.
Tyler can only watch with horror as they get mowed down, "Stars, teach your soldiers to vaule their lives and to not use body waves as an effective military tactic," as he turns to Allison and Talot, "Use your heavy weapons to draw the tank and then hit them with the grenades. I'll take pop shots at the soldiers who are maining the turrets."
As some of the chat solders advance the fallen Kig-yar HUDs are still active, detecting that their operator is dead and the enemy is still on approach the grenades and crystal spears explode as they get close.
Bodies go flying as one soldier cries out for his mother as his leg is blown off. Two soldiers drag him away. Tyler firing at the soldiers, sees two DIE fighters coming in. "Get off the streets, strafing run coming in!!!!"
The DIE passes, firing its shots to cover the chats retreat, then it flies away. The battle goes silent.
30 minuets latter the battle has remains silent.
As if nothing has ever happened 3 male moa steal needle rifle rounds from a Kig-yar guard who has fallen asleep and lay them before the feet of a female moa. They then seem to bow while displaying their wings and then wait patiently.
The female moa walks up to one of the males and begins nuzzling him, as soon as the other 2 males leave she turns facing the opposite direction of him, turning to look at him. In the light of the smoldering buildings and the shadows of the holes in the streets, she lifts her tail allowing him to mound her.
a swarm on geese fly over head at the area with sacured ground, Lord of the Stars and 44 other Kig-yar quickly draw DMRs and shoot them down. The Kig-yar begin loading them into sacks to be tomarrows breakfast.
Lord of the Stars looks over one of the geese, a bullet hole is in its wing. "I wonder where talot went. Bet he would enjoy these much better then meals ready to eat." Suddenly the goose snaps to life and sinks its teeth into Lord of the Stars wrist. In reflex he bites the creatures head off. "Damn, I did not know these things will play dead if you don't make sure they are."
