Brigadier Urdnot Hays
Counter Terrorist Operations Report
60th Snowmelt, 138th year after Rift opening
This morning my official reception of Alpha Company was interrupted by a violent shuddering of the city followed by the cessation of water flow. Only minutes later was I informed of a Halfling uprising within the water management department in the Granite District. Acting on the best interests of Bastion City, I dispatched Alpha Company via service shaft to the access corridor to the rear of Main Water Control. From there this specialist unit lead an assault on the water management offices.
Initially Alpha Company swept groups of large rats and small swarms from their path. Past these pestilent creatures the unit was forced to progress through a steamvent shaft to reach the next section of accessway. Once there they encountered a large reptile, one of our sewer crocodiles, as well as a small contingent of Halfling rebels. After a short engagement Darius lead his unit in a raid on the Water Management Offices dislodging the rebels entrenched within and rescuing a dwarven water worker.
Following their return I delivered to them their next orders from command, to seek out a master of Old Religion lore among The Collective and question him regarding strange symbols found both in the Waterworks and a bunker complex previously cleared by Alpha Company.
