The map set up I used was:

Desert Mountains #1, oriented north, Classic "Corner" Map oriented south, Desert Mountains #2 oriented north
Desert Sinkhole #1orient south, Desert Hills oriented north, Desert Sinkhole #2 oriented north

By "oriented", I mean which direction the map was laying so the small text with its name and copyright are right side up.  I also placed four level 1 hills to break up the edge runs where the maps came together (basically extending existing hills by one hex).

The enemy started on the "corner" map (representing the oasis), while the Emir's forces came in on the southeast corner of Desert Sinkhole #2 with the Double Deuce lance on the southwest corner of Desert Sinkhole #1 after all the Emir's forces entered.

I'll post the first post of the battle tomorrow, and draw them out about one a day or so.  I'll try to interweave the gold retrieval mission between those posts as they'll be going on about the same time.  There may be additional Astrokaszy posts as well, since that team is now in the know about their escape route from the WoB being on planet.

Sorry for the delay there... I'm finally getting the battle posted now.

I have to say: I literally rolled two 2s (Double Deuce FTW!) for location when the Rabigh Emir shot the Victor.  Out of four critical chances (since both shots ALSO went internal), he got five: 2 engine, 2 gyro, and a jump jet.  It almost made up for constantly missing with 5s and 6s for the Griffin and Phoenix Hawk throughout the battle.  8)

Apologies once again for the long delay in updates.  I had a family emergency, and it took a while to resolve.

It took a little over a day, but I managed to get connected at my first stop... at least I know it works at the second one...

Bueller?

Buuueller?
Some places remain unknown because no one has gone there.  Others remain unknown because no one has come back.

Okay, standing by.  If he's gonna re-engage, I won't narrate any actions for Mattis or Parker.

Excellent plan... in the mean time, feel free to grab a respirator and take a squad into the building...  Mattis and Parker can be assumed to be covering the outside with the rest of the platoon.

I've updated the TO&E to reflect the expended repair parts.  Things will progress in a bit more of a story mode for a bit.
