Unfortunately Louis "Legs" Akimbo and his Militia has become aware of these negotiations and has spent some time preparing an ambush to stop them. They are particularly eager to get their hands on Lydia and her briefcase – they can use the money to hire more gunmen and the contracts will prove the Visitors are not to be trusted which will fuel even more resentment and jealousy between Zikinga's ever-feuding clans.
The ambush involves pre-placed IEDs that destroy the Visitors vehicles and leaves them stranded in the middle of bush. Once the IEDs are detonated, the Warlord Charity Nsithlan and his men will head for home and offer no assistance to the Visitors – if there’s no bribe money, there’s no point in aiding the infidels, after all.
Defend their leader at all costs and find a building to use as a strongpoint from which to organize an escape from the region.
Insurgent Mission Objective.
Capture Lydia and kill or capture any other Visitors.
Before Lydia could organise a defence the RPG rounds started to land amongst the Visitor ranks.
The militia break cover and pour fire into the aliens small arms fire rips through the tall grass.
The Visitors are caught on two flanks but they are starting to thin the ranks of the Militia as they rush forwards to engage with the out of world invaders.
The rag tag bunch of militia rush forward inflicting several wounds on the defenders but before they can close with the Visitors and press their advantage they are cut down by the Visitors laser rifles.
Stay tuned for round two to see if Lydia can make it through the night.
The Visitors have lost 4 of their number and Legs has additional reinforcements flooding the area.
