Hi Folks,

This Saturday I'll be running "Against the Dragon", a scenario involving Carlyle's Commandos.


30 May 2995
5 km West of Randolm Valley, Liezen
Draconis Combine

Decades before Grayson Carlyle formed the Gray Death Legion on Trellwan, his father, Captain Durant Carlyle, was in charge of Carlyle's Commandos. It's been five years since Durant uncovered and foiled a plot to create a forward-operating base on Golandrinas where the Combine could launch raids deep into Steiner-held space. The Commandos have once again been called upon by House Steiner to foil the Dragon's plans. This time though, it involves locating the source of the raids that the Draconis Combine have been making into Commonwealth space and terminate the defenders with extreme prejudice.
