Lilith has a certain taste for the contracts she takes as a mercenary and this one seemed quite appealing too her. Exploring the Pacific Northwest at Northern Gun's expense and reinforcing an existing mercenary team. Lilith ended up hitching a ride from one of Northern Gun's depots that had some relief supplies and a few new personnel. Lilith could tell that even though Northern Gun purported a willingness to work with anyone, several of the personnel were either uncomfortable or enamored by her.Current Conditions wrote:Time/Date and Location: 9:00AM, Late April, Pacific Northwest, Desert

Lilith arrives at a small outpost with a few more dozen personnel floating around and waits out by the equipment until a beautiful blonde scientist approaches her. "Excuse me, Lilith, is it? Doctor O'Neill, a pleasure. Please follow me. I'll get you introduced to the mercenary unit and briefed." O'Neill states and leads Lilith to a conference room where the two wait. In the next several minutes, the various active members of the mercenary team filter inside the conference room.
Baxter and O'Neill meet the team at the established conference room where Baxter lays out his plan. Everyone can see a new person in the room that resembles a standing, human-sized bee. "Alright, keeping this short and sweet. The Mercer Project is the expansion too and reacquisition of what was formerly called the City of Seattle. A troubled city during it's peak, it was also equipped with some of the most cutting edge technology at the turn of the century. Some of which has never been replicated." Baxter states. O'Neill then steps in. "Added to the fact the historical records of what happened to Seattle are still incomplete. Your objective is to explore that area, assess it for dangers and provide suitable locations for us to establish forward bases. It's not your job to recover the tech, though anything you find should be turned over for reverse engineering." O'Neill continues and then pulls out a map. "The information you collected from the bunker in the forest had some interesting navigation routes that will let you either bypass or traverse the forest more aptly." O'Neill finishes.
O'Neill then turns to Lilith, then Sam. "I'd also like to introduce a new addition. Lilith is on a private contract with us as a freelancer however her skills would be effective with your unit while you explore. I trust this won't be an issue." O'Neill adds as Baxter steps forward, coughing once.
"Alright. Get your gear set up. Get to know each other. Barring unforeseen circumstances, your vehicles should always have a radio line back to us. If we lose contact for more than 7 days, we will assume you are lost and send in a search and rescue team." Baxter finishes. "You can leave when you're ready, but preferably by Monday. Let us know if you have any questions."
What are your intentions?
