A game about the pilots of powerful machines in a war that dominates every facet of life. They are trying to do their time and part, and get out physically and mentally intact. The organizations that perpetuate the War through all of known space are too incomprehensibly huge to take down. There is no “winning” the War, there is only surviving it.

These are their stories.

This is the third mission from Beam Saber: The Cenotaph

EMPLOYER: The Raccoons (tier 1S; Jovangellian Empire)

TARGET: The Society For Wider Understanding (tier 2S; Jovangellian Empire)


    Primary: Steal intel on recent battle sites from SWU offices.

    Secondary (Optional): plant pro-Raccoon propaganda in the SWU's news feed.

    Tertiary (Optional): steal intel unrelated to The Racoons demands.

ROE: “I don't care what the fuck you do, just get it done or we're burning down your house.“

COMPLICATION: One of the pilots' Rivals is on site. A friendly NPC is on site as a consultant for the SWU. There is a friendly NPC on site who is a prisoner of the SWU. There’s information about someone named Coyen Elreth (Lady Elreth's cousin) in the Tertiary Objective information. The Wolf Pack (tier 2S; Jovangellian Empire) are on site at Fort Jovanol. The SWU has its own security at both sites. The Primary Objective is located on the same floor as the intel officers' work space (including interrogation rooms).
