Last friday the 7th in a hot afternoon what started as a request for help
, ended up in one of the longest battles
between the clans and Omni-Tek in months.
A group of clan Borg Hunters in Mort
were in trouble as members of their team started to die unexplainably, three survivors decided to seek help from fellow clanners in Athen City
. Many joined the trio to investigate, search and rescue any survivors.

's only clue was the fact that their fellow hunters had instantly died when they arrived at a crash site of an Omni-Pol ship
. Their scans showed that borgs had not been in the area for days, as they finished scanning, members of their group started to fall, dead.

With a force of over fifty clanners, including Commander 'Windguaerd' Wagner
from Mercury Dragons Clan
(also a member of the CoT Clerical Staff
), Advisor Sollstice
from The Independent Rubikans
(neutral), Squad Commander Nukin
from Vengeance of the Clans
, General Escritores
from Nordic Alliance Clan
, Veteran Trgeorge
from Cerberus Clan
among others the Borg Hunters lead them to the crash site
Traveling through Whom-pahs
the large group moved through Tir
, Newland Desert
and arrived in Mort
in a matter of minutes at the Hope Clan Outpost
Everyone preparing for combat.
ready to lead the group to the crash site.
After using the local insurance terminal, everyone prepared for combat just in case they came under attack
. The crash site was located northwest from the outpost
, in a large crater
The sight was horrendous, dozens of omni corpses wearing Omni-Pol armor
along with destroyed omni Slayerdroids
, and not too far from them the bodies of the borg hunters who had mysteriously fallen

Everyone had a feeling as if something was watching them through their own eyes
, soon after a wet sluthering sound was detected all around, yet there was nothing visible
The group initiated scans of the area
, all came up were negative. Nothing besides the corpses and the ship was in the area. But then it happened...strange alien noises could be heard
....directly into people's minds. Many voices screaming out in agony
...and clanners started to scream in pain and dropped dead all around as they heard the word "DIE!"
in their minds.
Everyone was looking for something, anything to fight back with no avail. Whatever was attacking them was unseen
, and whatever weapon was being used, was undetected

viewed from a nearby hill.
Without a way to fight back, a tactical retreat
back to the Hope Outpost was advised by Commander Windguaerd
. Most clanners followed it, the rest died standing their ground
A few minutes after arriving at the outpost, just when they thought a safe area had been reached...people started to die. The small town was being affected by whatever was attacking everyone, it had expanded beyond the crash site area. It had reached Hope.
Having no other choice, another tactical retreat
was called by Commander Windguaerd
, to use the Whom-pah to Newland Desert
which hopefully would be a safe place. Luckily, it was.
Having great concern that what was happening in Mort could be taking place also in other clan areas, Mercury Dragons Lieutenant Gennai
and Private Cotix
were sent to clan cities Tir
to alert the Sentinels
and the Vanguards
of the situation as well as check if our cities had been affected in any way by the mysterious attack.
Fortunately there were no reported incidents
in either town. After a short while, whatever was killing people, stopped.
The area was officially quarantined in behalf of the Council
by Commander Windguaerd
, however within fifteen minutes of that order taking place Omni-Tek transport haulers landed
around the crash site, with over 100 troops
, including highly trained and heavily armed Omni-Pol Guards
. As soon as they surrounded the crashed ship, something that has not been heard of in years happened. Six Behemoth-Class Juggernauts landed
, the largest military force to land in clan territory in decades
Clan sources with a military background told that the omni force once backed up by the Juggernauts moved into a "Stormbuster" formation
; created by omni tacticians a few years ago in response to Storm Clan
's tactics against Omni-AF
Clanners who were in the area tried to approach the omni force to offer assistance
, it was then that without warning the omnis opened fire
on the clanners investigating the area.

Another tactical retreat
was called by Commander Windguaerd
to avoid further violence
. However that changed as soon as they had reached the Hope Outpost
The town had been occupied by force with a Behemoth-Class Juggernaut
along with thirty omni troops
. Outraged by the violation of a clan outpost and the death of it's guards, Commander Windguaerd gave the order to attack
to remove the trespassers. Clanners from several clan cities and towns rallied, even from as far as the shadowlands
, to answer the call to arms
. It took almost an hour
to liberate and secure the outpost
After clearing Hope from the omni occupying force
, the brave clanners prepared to head to the crash site. The risk of another omni force being deployed from the larger force at the crater to retake the clan outpost
was not an acceptable situation
. The omnis had to be forced out
of the crater, and out of Mort
This lead to an hour long battle
, using several different tactics to break the omnis "Stormbuster" formation
. First all the omni military personnel
was targetted, since the Behemoth-Class Juggernauts
were in position to cover their rear and unable to move fearing the risk of exposing their flank.
Using techniques to lure the omnis away from their heavy artilerry
they became easy targets for the clan forces, one by one they fell to the power of the clans
A surprise attack by omni employees
failed since they were heavily outnumbered by clanners, soon after they withdrew knowing they had no chance to change the outcome.
Without ground forces to protect their left and right flanks
, the Behemoth-Class Juggernauts
were vulnerable to long range weapon attacks
. Having no choice but to move forward to get the clanners in weapons range
the Juggernauts were trapped as they became completely surrounded by dozens of clanners...unable to target them all.
In less than fifteen minutes the mightly Juggernauts were on the ground, either disabled or destroyed
The crash site was secured by clan forces that day, and is still under quarantine. Hope remains on alert
. The Sentinels
were notified by the CoT Clerical Staff
to also remain on alert since they have an outpost in Mort
There is no explanation as to how people died, or who killed them before the omnis landed
Could it be a new Omni-Tek weapon
The corporation claims that they were only there to retrieve the bodies of a fallen Omni-Tek reconnaissance team
and refused to answer any further questions
either from me or other reporters
Why would Omni-Tek bring such a large force
to recover a small reconnaissance team?
I'm not the only one with that question
in mind, many others suspect the corporation of trying to either hide a new weapon they're developing
...or cover up
the fact that there may be a new threat to the clans
...after all, all this took place in clan territory.
Everyone heard the word "DIE!"
before they fell. The voice appeared not to be human...could it be there is something else
out there? a new threat
? or did Omni-Tek had an accident
while creating a new weapon and it caused their own ship to crash?
All scans of the area and holo-pics taken by the clanners are being examined by the CoT Clerical Staff
. They have stated that any discovery will be shared with the Council of Truth
. They have declared the crash site as "Area 52"
Holo-pics provided courtesy of Mercury Dragons Clan.
I can assure you my readers, If I find out more I will report!
